After getting my degree in Business Marketing at the University of Nevada, Reno I entered the “real-world” I knew that route was NOT the environment for me. True and valuable relationships were impossible to find, I wasn’t appreciated, my anxiety was at its highest – I was miserable. I wanted to feel like I was doing something important, I wanted to have true and valuable relationships.

I wanted to embrace the magic of this world.

I want to create moments for you that make you feel alive and on top of the world. Let’s ignite our spirits.

why i do what i do

adventure. freedom. deep convos.
stability. Health. quality time. 

My values.

send me a note to reserve your date

I’m a sucker for relationships. I love my friends. I love my boyfriend. I love my family. I love God. And I ESPECIALLY love my dog Roody and my 3-legged cat Trey. Spending quality time with those closest to me grounds me. I’m the type of person that brings the energy into a room (says my boyfriend) so it’s important to me that I surround myself with those who embrace me and lift me up. It’s also important to me to embrace and lift up those around me.

I’m a sap, I’ve always been a sucker for cheesy romcom movies, I’m a hopeless romantic – I can’t help it. I cry in movies, heck, I cry in previews lol.

Lovers. Adventurers. Genuine Souls. Not Afraid to Get a Little Dirty. Down to Make a Fool of Themselves. Ready to Crack a Beer and Pop Some Bottles.

my dream clients are...

meet your photographer

I’m constantly looking for those moments that make me feel alive to capture so I never forget that magical feeling.

My soul is happiest when I’m outside exploring. 

i'm a adventurous soul with a love for connection.

I found my release by exploring, being outside, and spending time with my friends. When I would explore with my friends I would bring my camera along and be so excited to show them the photos I took of them feeling free & ignited by their adventures. That’s when I got the itch to do this as my career.

i believe...

love is about having child-like fun, acceptance, being emotionally available, supporting each other, and looking across the room at each other and getting butterflies.
