I'm a born and raised Texas girl and moved to Montana 5 years ago. I love some good Mexican food...or really any good food. I am an omnivert. I love talking to others and making friends, going to wine bars and eating charcuterie/boards drinking cocktails or finding some good live music. I also love sitting on my couch eating wings or pizza, watching Netflix/Hulu and doing nothing! I am obsessed with dachshunds and have the cutest floofy puppy on the planet! I have a wandering spirit and love traveling! I am a big country music fan and love the country life. I love country western vibes...the turquoise, dried flowers, cowboy hats...I love it all, but I can also be kind of a hippy. Farmer's markets, handmaid goods, essential oils, baskets on the walls as decorations. Hats, fedoras turquoise jewelry and boho things have become a regular in my wardrobe.
I don't know what it is...but I am obsessed with love and photographing connection. Could be the way a couple interacts with one another, the way they touch, play, laugh, share intimacy and vulnerability. It's your journey together to where you are in that moment, as imperfect as it might be. Let's make magic out of your story!
My approach to photography comes from a place of connection. No posing, no fake smiles. I want to see YOU! I want your photos to be a genuine example of your relationship: the quirks, the fun, laughter, the deep feeling of love for each other, etc.
It's ok to be goofy and weird...you will notice very quickly that I am goofy and weird too! I will give you prompts to loosen you up and spark you to connect. From there, I guide you into different things letting you two be REAL.
I believe that feeling comfortable is super important for looking (and feeling) relaxed and getting used to having a camera in your faces. I do my best to make sure you feel comfortable with me and you have fun! During the shoot, I might play music, we'll laugh together, dance and just have fun!
Now, that all applies to couple sessions and newlywed portraits, but what about the rest of the wedding? I like to shoot weddings documentary style. That means - apart from family, wedding party, and newlywed portraits - I just blend in and let the day unfold in front of my camera. I'll be around to help with whatever you need, but I won't bother you to pose a certain way. I capture what is naturally happening.
