"Do you fill in your eyebrows?"

is a question I receive almost every time I meet someone new, (the answer is no) I'm that girl at the party who will find the dog and lock herself in a room with it, my faith is the epitome of who I am, laughter is my love language, and I can eat six rolls of sushi in one sitting and probably still have room for more. (AKA 36 pieces give or take) Originally from the Chicagoland area, I'm a city girl however, I recently graduated from a small school in Indiana with a degree in photography. Working out keeps me sane along with my three brothers who are my absolute best friends, and if you haven't already guessed it, I'm a dog lover. (Honestly "lover" is an understatement) I always look forward to getting to know new people, working with new products, and visiting new places all while exhibiting those entities through imagery. You can find me at the gym or taking boomerangs of sunsets only to find out if you were to scroll through my camera roll that I just save them in my phone instead of actually posting them on my story. (Usually...) I have a weak spot for the night sky (hence all the boomerangs) especially the stars and I have yet to take a long exposure of them. I've been to Iceland in the spring, but it's on my bucket list to visit during their winter season when it's nothing but northern lights. If you tell a joke that most people would get right away, expect me to understand it ten minutes later only when everyone else has already moved on. I'm not a huge fan of sweets but if you bring me mint chocolate chip ice cream or fruit snacks, I can promise you this: We're going to be great friends. If I'm not carrying around my camera, expect my phone to be out. I promise I'm not disengaging. You'll quickly realize I love to document everything even if it's just ten seconds. Why? Because good moments come and go quickly. Now... I know what you're thinking. One- This chick sounds crazy. Two- What does any of what she just ramble about have to do with photography? It doesn't. I want my clients to know whose hands they're putting their most prized possessions in when they send that first email of interest. Whether it's your fiancé, product, or space, I promise you that I will create images that are nothing short of my best. Although I'm a people person, I need my alone time equally as much as I need time with others. When it comes to products, the studio is my safe haven. It's where I can relax, recharge, and get away from the real world for a bit. If you would've told me four years ago that the studio would become my second home when I stepped into it for the very first time, I would've laughed. The tall, heavy equipment combined with the big, white, empty walls was everything but a safe place at the time. However, once I noticed the effect that those huge soft boxes and spacious walls had on what was a normal, everyday product before being placed in the studio, it was something I just knew I had to master. I fell in love with the sound the shutter made when released, the bright flash, and how one itty bitty remote could trigger it all. And I was in complete control. "I could get used to this" I thought to myself. Needless to say, I've learned that the more you invest yourself into something that intimidates you and is a little bigger than yourself, (or a lot) you may just be pleasantly surprised with the turn out. If you've made it this far, let me say THANK YOU. Now it's YOUR turn to ramble about yourself! Shoot me an email- maybe we can talk all things photo (or about your dog- I'm game for whichever) over a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream ;)
