To me portraiture is about human connection. When I’m behind the lens, I aim to seek out and capture my subject’s personality; to seize those fleeting moments when someone allows themselves to truly be seen.
My first camera was a gift, an old Pentax film camera. What started off as a hobby turned into a calling and I soon found myself poring over negatives in the darkroom. My desire to capture the everyday lured me in and world travel fueled my fascination with documenting my surroundings.
I’m inspired by the connection between people, the creative spark in an artist, the drive in a small business owner.
Beyond photography, I love to spend time in nature with my husband and pup.
