I'm a full time photographer based out of the gorgeous Arizona desert. I've fallen in love with the desert and I'll never look back. That said, I LOVE traveling, and I'm always ready for an adventure with my clients. I love concerts, game shows, long road trips, telling people to twirl their hair while I take pictures of them, and breaking out my best dance moves on any dance floor I happen upon. My job is the best job in the world - photographing people at the biggest moments in their lives. Traditional portraits are not my jam, so if that's what you're going for, I might not be exactly what you're looking for, and that's okay! But if you want to run around and snuggle with your babe, twirl your hair, laugh at my horrible jokes and bump to some music while we make some gorgeous memories, I'm your girl!
I've been to over 40 concerts and I don't regret a single one. Beyonce (WHO RUNS THE WORLD?!), J.T., The Beach Boys and Jason Mraz were among some of the favorite nights of my life! Hanging out with a bunch of people who love to belt the same songs I do gives me such life!
The desert has been my home for as long as I can remember, and I've always had a love-hate relationship with it. But in these past few years of my photography career, I have found so much beauty in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert. Cacti scare me to death, (the jumping ones, especially) but I've decorated my home and my work with them - they are just so beautiful!
This is one of the more ridiculous things I love... mostly because I don't drink coffee. And yet, I have 20 something mugs sitting in my cupboard! I drink water out of them and I'm perfectly okay with that. Mugs are just so darn cute and I don't feel like missing out just because I'm not a java-lover.
