Let’s be real, writing these ‘About Me’ sections are not easy… But I will do my best to give you a little insight to who I am as a person outside of photography. On a normal day; you’ll catch me watching Youtube (literally why am I so obsessed I will never know?), filling up online shopping carts and exiting out before buying anything, watching an insane amount of reality TV with my love, Ryan (if anyone needs recommendations, I am your girl), and probably enjoying a glass or 2 of red wine. Truly would have never assumed I would enjoy red wine but I am hooked and I am never going back. I also am candle obsessed, Ry and I have collected nearly 30 Bath & Body Works candles and I am not sure if we should be happy or enroll in a help program. I graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in marketing and moved back after graduation to my hometown Boise, ID. My family is what keeps me sane and I love being just 25 minutes away from the home I grew up in. I love new experience and travels. I am that stereotypical millennial that would rather spend their money on experiences than things and I think that is actually a pretty cool thing to be! Photography has been my thing since I was a freshman in high school. And honestly I couldn’t imagine life any other way. I love being that crazy friend that has to take photos at every outing, it really is just a part of me. My passion with photography is 100% weddings and engagements. There is something so special about capturing love. so vulnerable and just gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling. my favorite moments to capture are not always those “insta famous” photos but the ones that are truly representative of the couple; crazy kiss attacks with double chins from uncontrollable laughter, dancing together with all the beautiful uncoordinated moves, laughing like crazy telling old memories, i could seriously go on and on. The best photos come from moments of uninhibited honesty and joy and I want your session to be filled with them. I feel like my purpose as a photographer is to capture these true and honest moments; the silly, beautiful, and candid human moments. Whether it’s a senior portrait session or a wedding day, I want to capture your true story. Don’t get me wrong, we will get those gorgeous smiles, perfect laughs, and intimate kisses too ‘cause those freaking rock! I base my business around not just being a photographer, but also around being a friend in and outside of the shoot. My untraditional style might not be for you and hey that’s okay! I’m not going to remove every freckle or make you look like a porcelain doll because in reality, that just isn’t who you are. I do promise to capture the most beautiful version of the real you. I want every person who gets in front of my camera and receives their edits to remember who they were in that moment. Life is so damn fast and i want to freeze these moments for you. I am successful if my photos are able to bring you back to a time of happiness filled with genuine emotion and beauty. I vow that if you choose to work with me you will receive creative, beautiful and artistic images. You will also remember having a blast because taking photos should be a damn fun no stress thing. I am so excited to meet you and can’t wait for you to see who you are through my lens.
