Nice to meet you!
National Association of Women Business owners
Women of Distinction Award Winner OCT 2022
You may as well know upfront that my goal is for us to fall in love and work together forever. My whole process is designed to make that happen.
You’ll notice it right from our first meeting, where we’ll connect on a deeper level, and not just because I am a people person who’s an adorable, friendly and creative old soul, but also because I have a gift for bringing out that part of you (the real you) that you love most, in person and in your pictures.
Maybe it’s from my theater days, or because of all the personal development I’ve done, or maybe it’s because I’m always the real me (no point in being less than that!), but I know that you’re going to feel comfortable and more like yourself than you are with other people you first meet.
Then, when we chat, you’re going to notice how much I love empowering women!
You and me, we’re both here to do great things! You have a story to tell, and that story is what connects you to other people. That story is how you’ll make your difference in the world, and I’m going to bring it to life in your pictures, so you can reach the ones you love, your clients, and most importantly, yourself, in a way you haven’t before.
Of course, beyond working with my completely loveable self, you’re also going to get the most amazing photos that will knock your socks off! Photography is my passion and you are my work of art!
I am professionally trained, but honestly, that’s not really the thing that makes the gorgeous photos you’re going to get. The training gives me the technical knowhow to make the picture just right, but the real reason your photos will be better than any you’ve ever taken before (even if you hate getting your picture taken) is that I see you in a way that others don’t.
I see the fiercest part of you that comes out when you’re in your zone. The woman who is here to take on the world and WIN! Whether that’s in the bedroom or the boardroom, or both, she is going to come out and play, and in your photos, you’re going to see yourself in a new way.
And because of all of that, you’re going to want to work with me forever!
Let’s meet and you can put it to the test.
How I got Started...
I always knew I wanted to give back to the world with my creativity and energy. In school I explored other outlets, but didn’t find any passion or inherent ability. It wasn’t until I was 25, burnt out from being an operations manager in the consumer electronics industry, and yearning for learning, that I went back to school for photography. During my schooling, I saw so many people graduating and just going back to their day jobs. I knew I wanted photography to be my avenue of expression and started my business when I was still in school. Everyone has their own timeline and I love being an inspiration for fellow creatives to find their passions and elevate their ideas with my creative eye.
How it's going...
I thrive on empowering women from the boardroom to the bedroom to have more confidence in their bodies and make more money in their businesses. Currently working with small business owners on re-branding themselves with photography that speaks to their unique talents so they can align themselves with their ideal clients. At the same time, I love the human form and want every woman to be able to see how beautiful she really is, especially on the days that are the hardest to hold their heads up high. I am on a mission for every woman in the world to invest in themselves and experience a boudoir session.
I have my commercial photography degree so I know how to professionally light and pose for all situations, I have been nationally published in Cosmopolitan, Fortune, Money, and Entrepreneur as well as many local publications and billboards, I won the Silver medal in Nevada's Skills USA photography competition, I won the SIGMA photography competition in the categories of Macro and Architecture, I placed 2nd in the Jesse Reese Photography Competition, I have been an active mentor for the high schoolers in the Communities in Schools programs for 3 years, teach annually at the CSN FotoFest for local high schoolers, have invested countless hours into continued education and workshops on lighting, posing, branding, marketing, and more, and I will be teaching beginning photography at CSN in the fall. I also have partnered with amazing charities in town to help have an impact on my community and the world including The Ink Ribbon Foundation, Dress for Success, Global Charity Fund, Communities in Schools, and The Cupcake Girls.
