Your story matters.

After nearly nine years of documenting joy- filled moments like weddings and new babies, to discovering the raw beauty and grit that can come from unthinkable loss, I'm merging my love of portraiture with my affinity for the stories behind the people I meet. 

 

This is not storytelling photography- this is storyleading.  It's documentary, but with a dive into the deep end of the things that matter most.

 

The power of grief. 

 

The presence of love. 

The pervasive humanity and hope that bind us all to each other in ways that call for us to honor them.
