MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
My southern roots gave way to northern frost almost 25 years ago. Before that, I spent my rocky childhood walking around barefoot finding solace among the trees.
I have always been fascinated with the parallelity of mother nature and the human spirit. I can remember watching the way the light poured through the leaves and knew that with the right wind, the light could shine in my dark places.
It blew, and when it did, I started living. Like, really living. Exploring the world, jumping out of planes, celebrating sobriety, falling in love with myself, healing all the hurts that were mine (+ some that were not), making love; and then babies, and then art.
It was my honey's graduation gift, a Nikon D3500, that ended up being a curiously designed tool that the Universe used to teach me the very distinct and common denominator between healing and photography - light.
My degree in Liberal Arts & Communications wasn't ever going to complete me or heal the world, but coupled with my unique novel of experiences + pen / paper (my first love) + a way to transform light into love, I stood a chance.
With my head held high and my arms bent at the elbows, I ran headfirst into a hunch, as I do. That whimsical feeling and my willingness to be carried aloft led me here.
Today I spend my days chasing babies, my evenings chasing light, and my Sundays chasing God. I will continue to write in black & white, photograph in color, and blur the lines between them along the way.
I find joy in the little things
WE'LL PROBABLY VIBE IF:
You wear sweat pants to go out and shop at the thrift store but you need all the best skincare and aesthetics money can buy.
You require predictability and structure like air, but also need to book same-day flights at 3 am sometimes just to prove to yourself you're alive.
You are fascinated by the mystery of vintage things but are equally aware of the intrinsic weight of the former owner's experiences.
You lean toward eastern principles, plant medicine, & energy healing but also have an MD & a prescription for Xanax because overthinking is your superpower.
You shamelessly hype the 80s, have at least one pair of white Keds, an affinity for the Golden Oldies, and can tell me who we never put in the corner.
