I am inspired by the dance between the desert's harshness & graceful simplicity; I aim to capture the beautiful hues, textures & shapes that result from this relationship –– to capture the hearts & bones of the wild west. To capture the truest moments between loved ones and the beauty of ordinary moments.

I specialize in crafting visual stories for all sorts of special occasions. Whether commemorating your nuptials, aiding in your journalistic endeavors, capturing those unforgettable moments with your nearest and dearest, or freezing those pivotal events, I can uniquely capture those intimate moments & projects. Reach out to me directly with questions to get started and hear about pricing.

Ever since moving to Marfa in Far West Texas in 2015, I have taken as many opportunities as able to explore the beautiful Chihuahuan Desert. The images in the artist galleries are a collection of my favorite photos taken from the Davis Mountains down to Mexico and everywhere in between. Sprinkled among this collection are pictures from a myriad of other destinations over the years as well as a sampling of work I've created with various clients. These range from portrait sessions to editorial work.

With a background in and ever-growing interest in both social work and photography, as well as the family-given title from a young age as a family documentarian, I've always desired to capture a moment in its authenticity, to tell stories of truth and aid in remembering the most delightful of moments. I always prefer to photograph things/moments as they happen without much disturbance from me or the presence of my camera. There's not much else that makes me happier than the opportunity to fully explore space and moment as it exists.

In 2021 I made the move down south to Presidio, Texas. A small (but slightly larger than Marfa) town that completes the southern part of Presidio County. It sits on the border from Mexico, across from the Rio Grande and with Big Bend Ranch State Park as it's backyard.  Presidio first entered my world several years ago as I started on the wild journey with my partner and now husband. Presidio is his hometown and has become a home for me too. I would love to share it with you. I truly believe if you've been dreaming of photos in West Texas Desert, it is here in south county that you'll want to venture. 

I am willing to travel, whether it's near or far, for your elopement, wedding, event, story or portrait session.
