I am a visual storyteller
Since I can remember I have been captivated by photography and the power it has to visually tell stories. I received my first SLR (yes, 35mm) camera as a gift when I was 17 eventually upgrading to a DSLR camera by age 24. I have taken multiple digital photography and photoshop courses but I am mainly self taught through reading and 18+ years of capturing experience. My experience started in portrait photography, capturing the stories of individuals and families. I opened my handmade business in 2015 and fell in love with the creative process that goes into creating a product image. Creating a story, a setting that visually conveys specific emotions, ideas, solutions or messages is inspiring work because the driving force is connection. As a portrait photographer the story was already there, I just had to capture it in a creative way. With product photography, I create the story.
I believe product photography is simply an extension of the creative work you do.
I believe you are deserving of opportunity no matter your limitations.
I believe in connection, working directly with my loves, addressing your individual product photography struggles and creating personalized solutions.
I believe you should feel seen, heard, and valued.
I am committed to helping you understand the technical elements of photography, as they relate to your handmade business.
Whether you’re starting or growing your business or looking to make a change, I am here to help you understand product photography, create connection in your images through story, and easily replicate the process without sacrificing time, money, yourself or what you value most.
