  • Audrey is a fellow photographer, and came to me to update her headshots and branding.  I love photographing other photographers, and having this beauty in front of my lens was such a treat & so much fun!
Audrey’s initial email to me said , “I have never ever found myself beautiful in any capacity (not even my wedding day) so, good luck”.
To be honest, I hear this quite often.  And it makes me that much more excited to photograph!! I love helping women look beautiful , feel beautiful and OWN beautiful photographs that they are proud to share✨
Audrey told me she thought she’d only like one or two, and in fact loved them all.
This is one of her favorites, and mine too ❤️

  • Loved having these two beautiful sisters in the studio for not only headshots and personal branding, but a birthday celebration as well! 
Both are strong, loving, strikingly beautiful & powerful business women.  We had the best time , literally sore from laughter, as if we had known each other for years.  I feel incredibly lucky to have a job that brings such amazing, inspiring and powerful women into my life! ✨
