Meet the artist:
I have been creative from an early age, exploring every creative outlet I could find including painting, writing, singing, and crafting. In 9th grade my discovery of film photography changed my life. I found the thing that made me feel the most ALIVE. The turning point was there, but I resisted, afraid to pursue a career in the arts. Instead, I earned a bachelors degree in Ecology and Environmental Science because I thought that was the sensible thing to do. In the end, passion won and I started my portrait studio and never looked back.
Photography is my passion, my obsession, and my continuing dream. I love anything ethereal, fairytale, and emotionally evocative. I am inspired by humanity, mysterious beauty, fashion, classical painters and a deep connection to nature. I am a modern Romanticist.
My specialty is women's portraiture including teens and high school seniors, glamour, headshots and my trademark fairytale fashion. Everything is infused with a unique vision and a romantic sensibility, resulting in portraits that are award winning, timeless and far from ordinary.
I believe strongly in community and youth empowerment. I enjoy working with teens using my photography skills and MUSEnation to provide confidence building and empowerment opportunities both locally and nationwide. Past MUSEnation models have appeared in many national publications, worked with the State of Arkansas Tourism Board, PBS Television, WPPI and more.
I also offer photography workshops and I am available for teaching seminars and private clients.
