I love being outdoors. Hiking, camping, and relaxing at the beach are my favorites. But if I'm stuck inside, I'll be watching Pretty Woman, Friends, or Big Bang Theory. Regardless, come over, grab a snack, and join me. You get extra bonus points if you bring a gluten free dessert that doesn't taste like cardboard.

I'm so glad you're here

Just the Facts

Let your personality shine

Do your own thing

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT KNOWING WHO YOU ARE.
it took me OVER THIRTY YEARS TO FIGURE IT OUT.

What do seniors and personal brand clients have in common? It's the positive energy and confidence that they display. They aren't afraid to express their likes and dislikes. They know who they are and what they stand for.

I am inspired by these powerful young ladies and entrepreneurs. They have something that I lacked. Being able to capture their true personalities is empowering. And it makes me stronger, too.

I spent most of my childhood afraid to take risks, trying to please everyone, and being completely miserable. It wasn't until I was in my 40's that I finally felt comfortable in my own skin. This is when I started making my own decisions. When I quit my office job to pursue photography. And when I stopped worrying about what everyone else was thinking.
