I'm a Chicago native but I currently live in Venice steps from the sandy shore with my husband, Brett, and my small fluffy white dog, Annabelle. Unable to sit still, I am a work-a-holic and love all things that encourage stretching my creative muscles. When I'm not making photographs I am usually reading, riding my bicycle, or drinking way too much coffee. And I make jewelry as a hobby! You can check that out here if you want to know more as it is very much apart of who I am and how I create all art: WeldedRoots.com

I believe that art comes in many forms and love that through my photographs I get to support others in their lines of work. One of my great passions is to encourage and inspire others.

My studio is located in Santa Monica, CA. It is a natural light studio that opens to outside. We listen to music and create photographs. I aim to make my sessions as stress-free and fun as possible. I can't wait to hear about what inspires you!



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!
