In 2008, my husband (who was then just a friend) put a camera in my hands and said “Take a picture of me!” Now, many years later, I’m still taking pictures. I guess it was a career that just sort of stuck!
A few random facts about me: I'm from Chicago (I'm a chi-town girl through and through), I love jazz music (but we can listen to whatever you'd like during your shoot), I have a slight obsession with trees (yes, you heard that right...trees!), and I usually drink two to three cups of coffee everyday (although lately I’m trying to switch to tea). And my hobby is making jewelry! You can check out my Etsy page here if you want to know more about that: WeldedRoots.com. I LOVE art in all it's glorious and tragic forms and have designed my life so that I can create art everyday. I currently live in Venice with my husband, Brett.
I feel honored that my job is to create photographs for people that represent them in their line of work. A great photograph can be a stepping stone for that next big job, and I love that I get to be apart of this.

My makeup team is an essential part of my creating great photographs. I work with two girls on a regular basis, Angelina and Laurie, and they both have been with me for many years. Upon booking your session I will book one of them for you, you don't have to do anything other than tell my you would like a makeup artist for the day of your shoot. I do allow for people to bring their own makeup artists however I strongly recommend using one of my girls as they are used to the lighting I use and type of makeup that works best for my shooting style. I absolutely adore my girls, and I hope you will too!
Our studio is located on Main Street in Santa Monica, CA, 2 blocks from the beach. We aim to make our sessions as stress-free and fun as possible. We listen to music and create great photographs. I can't wait to hear about what inspires you!
