OVER 450 CELEBRATIONS
I'm a humanist, an advocate for love and equality, a coffee-addict, an "almost crazy cat lady" (trust me, if Nyx let me, I'd have a dozen cats here by now!), a part-time shower singer, and full-time wedding photographer based in Dallas, Texas. My mission is to provide inclusive, body-positive, and human-centric photography for all. I want you to fall in love with yourself, your partner, and everything in between - over and over!
How I do things here,
You know what they say, "time flies when you're having fun." I try to live my life in that exact way, whatever it is we're talking about. The same applies to my business. I mean, guys, I've been doing this for over a decade. If I didn't have fun, I'd be done with photography altogether by now. I'm not the type that can do the same thing over and over and over every day. Heck, I can't even meal prep and eat the same food 3-4 days in a row, haha! Despite my tattoos and style, which makes me look badass, I'm a pretty tame person (like I don't even have traffic tickets), but deep down, I have a wild child who wants to have fun and enjoy life and the company of other people.
I don't do those classic stiff posing that will make you feel uncomfortable. I have a more organic approach to my posing. I will talk with you throughout your session, whether it's an engagement, family, or boudoir session - and you are not going to even realize that a photoshoot is happening. Hah! It does not hurt, I promise. *wink wink*
I take the time to get to know my clients. This helps me with deciding how to approach each individual/couple/family. Some of my clients are shyer, some are so energetic, some don't like certain things (so I avoid them), and some need a little more cheering... There's no "one size fits all," which is why we must click. I want my clients to get to know me, like, the real me. I want them to be able to go grab a drink with me, go bowling, come visit me at the studio and share drinks at the rooftop. I want to surround myself with people I can relate with - and vice versa. I want my clients to be able to connect with me. I want to work with "my humans." I mean, if you don't like me, I'm going to be a pain in the bumbum to be around for the duration of our booking - because I talk too much, joke around and throw in bad dad jokes here and there :P Just sayin'!
