so i hate talking about myself…

But here goes. I’m originally from Minnesota, a small-town girl who fell in love with an Australian boy and moved her ass halfway across the world for him. It didn’t take long for me to adopt a sailors vocabulary, but I like to think I balance it with just enough class to keep from going full bogan.

I don’t express it well in person, but I’m a HUGE softie and romantic. When Blake (the man candy) and I first started our relationship, it was from opposite ends of the globe, and we even spent the first year of marriage apart. That period of my life has played a huge part in shaping my philosophy toward life and consequently, the way I shoot. It taught me to prioritise the people you love, let the little things go, say what you mean, and make real, meaningful memories and keep them close.

I fall in love with every single one of my clients. Yeah, it’s probably outside the bounds of my job description, but I just think you’re all so beautiful and your stories become special to me. I feel things deeply, and that includes a responsibility to help you leave your legacy.

In my downtime, you’ll find me nurturing my introvert heart at home, snuggled up with a coffee in the corner of our couch, or bumming around in a t-shirt and mom jeans. Current endeavours include trying to keep my plants alive, being more healthy, and learning how to cook more than tacos and pasta. I love meeting new people and I’m a sucker for a good love story, but hours of small talk will exhaust me. If you want to be my friend for life, let’s talk about love, ambition, what challenges you, what scares you, and what excites you.
