I see magic in the world.


Or that might just be the glitter from yesterday.

Photographer / Lover of Glitter / Dreamer

I set out to capture the incredible moments of strength, emotion and beauty that lie in each of my clients and their journey in life. I am not going to lie, I see magic in each person I meet, even if they haven’t believed in magic since they were young. 

I am a mother of a loving yet, photo hating, teenage son and a wife, to a man who fired me from laundry but helps me reach for my dreams on a daily basis. And let me tell you, there is a lot of glitter, definitely rhinestones, cases of flowers and sometimes unicorns in these dreams. This man puts up with a lot!

At a young age, I found that I loved to evoke different emotions from people. This led me to pursue theater performance and dance in school and thereafter. I have had my Oscar speech prepared and memorized since I was 10. Laughter through tears is still one of my favorite things. 

I then began a long and passioned career in makeup artistry. I am not afraid of color and loved recreating looks straight from a magazine page. But, my ultimate joy was when a woman came in who was either a mother who never wore makeup, one who was battling cancer or someone who was starting a new career, looked into the mirror and saw just how beautiful she is. This was magic to me. Her physicality changed in an instant, and there was a sparkle in her eye. She stood a little taller, her slouched shoulders lifted and her face lit up with a smile. This has inspired me every day.

Flash forward to having the exact same kind of moments when I show clients photos of themselves during a boudoir or fashion shoot or seeing their little ones being captured in a new light. Their eyes light up, a smile lifts onto their face and they get excited to do it again.

Let me help you capture your moments and show you that magic, here and now.
