I work with creative solopreneurs to help you showcase all aspects of your brand in photographs.

WHAT STEPS DID IT TAKE YOU TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?

After graduating college with a diploma in photography I got right to it photographing weddings and families. Though I loved this work, with an education in commercial photography I knew I wanted to be in a space with more variety and creative collaboration. Brand photography offers the perfect space for me to connect deeper with my clients and work together to make something beautiful.

HOW DO YOU STAND OUT IN YOUR FIELD?

I work with you from start to finish to hash out a plan and produce photographs that serve your business. I know how to work with light to move beyond the boundaries of current trends and capture you and your product in a consistent style that represents your brand.

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?

As a creative solopreneur myself I recognized the tendency to hide behind my work and let my art do the talking. This is a problem because my clients want to know and trust me first and my product second. I'm not alone in this and I want to help you showcase yourself in your business. I want to photograph you doing what you love so your clients can see the passion in your process.

WHAT TYPE OF COLLABORATIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

I love love love teaming up with other creatives for a common goal and my ultimate goal is seeing other business owners grow to new heights. If you've got a vision involving lighting, photography, file handling, or printing I would love to put our brains together to realize your dream.

WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER ONE WAY TO GET INSPIRED?

Light always gets me. Be it manipulating flashes for a specific photo or simply enjoying the sunshine on my skin on a summer day, nothing gets me creative juices flowing like a pretty patch of light.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOURSELF AT THE START OF YOUR CAREER TO HELP EASE ANXIETIES?

You don't need permission to slow down and enjoy the process - it will all fall into place.

WHO INSPIRES & MENTORS YOU?

Kristen Kalp has helped me to find my voice and put it to use in both my life and business. She has a fresh perspective on building a business which allows me to breathe and feel fulfilled in and away from it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON CURRENTLY?

I'm currently working on a series of portraits of creatives at work and it's been such an inspiration to learn about the passions that people hold and how that has lead them to hone their craft and create beautiful things.
