my story

beauty is not in the eye of the beholder. It's in the eye of the self. And that's the only opinion that matters.

I have been a photographer for 10 years now

My favorite leisure activity is ANYTHING in this whole world with my soulmate, my 2 little girls, and my pups

Emperors New Groove is, was, and always will be the greatest movie of all time

I am fascinated by the intricacies and beauty of the human body, mind, and soul

The quickest ways to my heart are through chocolate lava cake, bootie shoes, a burger that gets all over the place,  and fedoras

I seriously believe I have two main purposes in life! First and foremost, being a mom and wife. Second, and of exact same importance, helping empower every-day women! 

I don't ever dwell on the past. I recognize it as the lessons I needed to learn to become my best self. The biggest lesson necessary for a healthier me was breaking away from my codependency. I spent years being torn down in my natural me state and ended up forgetting completely who I was and what made me thrive in happiness. The day I realized me giving so much of myself was actually unhealthy, my world changed. I spent a year changing every part of my life, learning and setting boundaries, building myself up, rekindling relationships with family and friends, and rediscovering who I was meant to be. In shooting boudoir, I have found a way to uplift those around me who have gone through situations that deplete their confidence. I have a way to be inspired by every woman who walks in my studio. I get to show women that they are beautiful, even when they're not dolled up. In their natural skin, they are stunning. Each boudoir session reflects each woman differently and tells their story, while helping them fall in love with their every day selves all over again. Lets re-discover the light within and create some artistic magic.

I own a studio located just outside of La Quinta, CA. However, I service all of Southern Cali. As an inspired shooter, I always pick location best suited for the vision of your session. Renting Airbnb's, heading outdoors into desert or forest, or even planning for your own requested space! I have done it all and will always make sure your session location encourages your story in every image.


Places i've been

for the fact that nobody ever knows the extent of what you've been through. Your body is not a burden, it is a gift. It holds every piece of you and helps guide you through life. It is my job to help you re-connect with your true self, your sensuality, and your every day beauty. Your story is important. YOU deserve to love yourself through anything. That is what I strive to provide you with. A moment of re-connection and tools for continued self-love..
