diverse & authentic Photography

Capturing light, feelings & moments and all the things in between people and life.

I aim to capture the beauty of the diversity around us as naturally and authentically as possible, and as the viewer, I want you to see my art and see yourself represented within in it.

Once you hit 'SEND MESSAGE' on my inquire form you will get a response from within 1-3 days confirming my availability for your date and some general questions about location or if you have any special ideas for your session. If you're inquiring about a wedding or elopement I will confirm availability but also schedule an initial phone call/zoom meeting where we can get to know each other and chat about your special day!

time to book!

Once we have decided date, time, and location I will send over a proposal that will include your invoice and contract for you to look over and review. You can also ask me any questions and ask for any vendor referrals you may need! Once you have signed the contract and sent in your non-refundable retainer fee YOU ARE BOOKED!

I will arrive at our agreed upon location, chat with you a bit and give you my "signature spiel" and we will get started. No worries about knowing how to pose or feeling awkward, just come with an open mind and let me do the rest! After the session or event you will receive a few sneak peeks to hold you over and the rest of the gallery will be sent to you within the next 4-8 weeks!
