I was born and raised in the PNW and grew up in a family led by parents who had passion for the arts. My mother exposed us to an endless amount of classical art including music, opera, literature, sculpture and various painters from around the world. My dad, on the other hand, had a passion for theater. Together the two of them filled our brains and hearts with a terrific amount of art, history and culture.
As a college fledgling I studied digital arts, music and art welding, theology (well, ok, there might have been some pre-nursing and emergency medicine, as well), and while I enjoyed these subjects, I did not find my niche in any of them. It was not until I began to take Sociology classes that my passion began to bloom. It was several years later that I happily graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, with a focus on Human Sexuality and Gender Studies.
Most recently, I found a way to combine my knowledge of classic and digital art, pleasure in photography, and passionate love of humankind through various forms of boudoir and intimate photography.
In my work I strive to capture the beautiful and individual nature of each and everybody, regardless of size, age, race, culture, sexual orientation or gender identity. These photos are a celebration and affirmation of you, your emotion and your identity in this very moment. It is my work to capture that moment in time in a time-locked and memorable way.
I desire that every individual and couple walk away from their photography experience feeling like a priceless sparkling diamond—unique in design, stunning in beauty and highly prized in value.
