What Do I Photograph?

Portraits, Headshots, Editorials, Fashion

I have a passion for photographing people. There’s something about the collaborative nature of working with another individual that really brings a photoshoot to life. No matter if you’re looking for an entire look-book for your new clothing collection or a new headshot for your LinkedIn profile, I’d love to help create some images that tell your story.


I love photographing weddings and engagements. The cake, the rings, your aunt with the embarrassing stories… it all comes together to create a magical 12 hours that you’ll relive through your photographs. That’s a lot of pressure, but preparedness makes things run smoothly. I pride myself on understanding your day to the best of my ability, including touring the venues, talking with wedding planners, and having the schedule in my back pocket. Oh, and then there’s the photography. I have so much fun documenting your entire wedding day.

Real Estate, Short-term Rentals, Airbnb

I’ve been photographing properties since the beginning of my photography career. Today, I utilize a simple process for photographing homes, businesses, and other commercial or warehouse settings that allows me to move quickly and capture the space naturally. Although I use flash in specific situations, I prefer the to allow the room’s own lighting to tell the story. This provides a more authentic and realistic view of the property.


Before becoming a photographer, I worked in a number of schools throughout the St. Louis, Missouri area as a before and after-school coordinator. Although I miss the kids, the games, and the sometimes not-so-funny knock-knock jokes, I love having the opportunity to photograph families. Family photography offers a special opportunity to document families being families. No matter if you’re looking for more posed family shots or a documentary approach, I’d love to capture lasting family memories for you.
