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 at least three cups of coffee everyday. Oh, and my hobby is making jewelry! You can check out my Etsy page here: 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, and my small fluffy white dog, Annabelle.
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.
Our Makeup Artists
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!
