a little about me...

I am originally from a small town in Minnesota but have also lived in California, Colorado,

Costa Rica and now South Carolina.

I moved to Charleston, SC in 2013.

I love traveling, reading, taking photos and going on walks with my two dogs.

Giving back is important to me, I volunteer at the Charleston Animal Society almost every week, taking pics of dogs and cats looking for their forever home.

My two dogs, Grey and Clementine, are both mutts I rescued from a local rescue. I love exploring parks around the area with them.

I am 1 of 4 kids, so I grew up in a big family. The house was very loud.

I've recently become a plant mama ( I have never had a green thumb but I'm excited to learn)

I love binging The Office, Parks and Rec or New Girl as I'm editing photos.


I currently have 7 tattoos.

I'm a Pisces Sun, Virgo moon.

I'm part wallflower, part free spirit.

That's not food on my face, I have my lip pierced. 

Sophia Bush is a role model of mine.

I'm always down to go camping or on any outdoor adventure.

I love ALL creatures from spiders to elephants. I've actually held a tarantula!

On my travel bucket list right now is Greece, Kenya and Banff, Canada!

I am a certified health and life coach.

Understanding who we are and living from authenticity is an important part of life that I've been exploring these last few years. It's an ongoing journey of growth and self discovery.

I grew up always having a camera in my hand. After I graduated high school, I moved to California to attend Art School, where I studied Film and Video. But I quickly realized that film is not what I wanted to do. Eventually, I changed my focus and fell in love with photography.

Capturing authentic moments is where my heart lives.

Create. Explore. Inspire.

My Values

I believe it's important to surround yourself with people who align with your core values. When you know what to expect and what kind of person you'll be working with, it helps create connection.

Authenticity- to show up as you truly are, with the willingness to be seen as an imperfect person and the willingness to accept imperfections in others. To show understanding and compassion towards those who are different than you and have had different experiences than you. To be real, with yourself and others.

Integrity- showing respect and honesty towards yourself and others. Living your life by a set of principles that you have deemed essential to your well being. Even when it's not the easy thing.

Courage- facing your fears and learning from them. Making mistakes, trying and putting in effort when you feel it's important to do so. Not letting others or society tell you what is best, but instead listening to your own heart and intuition. 

Creativity- Giving your imagination and intuition a seat at the table. Seeing wonder and magic throughout your day, week, year, lifetime.  Appreciating the beauty of nature and the world around you and not taking it for granted. 

Growth- Allowing yourself to change and evolve when you need to. Following the compass of your true self and not others. Being curious about your emotions, thoughts and desires and following that thread. Honor what lights you up.

What I've been up to...


I've recently added brand photography to my portfolio because I have come to discover that I LOVE it. I love working with small businesses and entrepreneurs and helping them expand their brand. Over the past 6 months, I've been working with some holistic practices within the Charleston area and have enjoyed it immensely.

I hope to grow this new branch of my business into something beautiful and thriving over the foreseeable future.
