Most would people describe me as calm and a peacemaker, but I have a flame inside me. When I was pregnant with my first baby, a dear friend gifted me a print that says, "Sky above me. Earth below me. Fire within me." That phrase feels grounding. Secure. And that's the attitude I try to have most days. 
I'm a recovered people pleaser and equal parts logic and deep feelings. I'm passionate about social justice, personal growth and education, conscious parenting, and creating. I'm always creating. As I type this, I hear my husband saying, "There is so much shit on this table." He's he's trying to feed the kids lunch and annoyed that I left my weaving loom mounted on the kitchen table with heaps of yarn all around. Yep. That sounds about right. 

Though I hop from medium to medium in my art, the camera is something that I've never put down. It is the perfect tool to show people their inherent beauty. I suppose you could say that my true passion is helping people see all of the things that make them wonderful. And I want people to see that inherent goodness inside their partner and their children, too. 

I once had a client that told me that their photos were a reminder of how amazing her children were. Having the photos hung in her house made her love her children more, because when life got wild, and she began to lose her patience, the photos reminded her to slow down and see the goodness inside them. That's when I knew I was in the right line of work. 

My Philosophy as a Photographer

It is important for me to note: when I talk about beauty (wanting to help folks see their beauty), I'm not narrowing the definition of beauty to western beauty standards that many of us are indoctrinated with at a young age. You don't have to be conventionally pretty to be beautiful. Really, I don't think any of us NEED to be beautiful, nor do we OWE beauty to anyone. The beauty I'm talking about isn't usually seen, but felt. It runs so much deeper. It's permission to accept love and take up space and be seen. We are whole and inherently worthy. We don't need to shrink ourselves or change ourselves to show up in life or in photographs. To be true to ourselves is the ultimate form of resistance and radical self-love. We all deserve to have that. Being photographed can be an incredible reminder of that worthiness.
