thank you for your interest in my work. Image making is something I am deeply passionate about. As the facilitator of Healing The Stories We Tell Ourselves with Mother Turtle, I am constantly reminded of how stories mold us. These stories hold images in our mind. Images that speak volumes. Recently, I have created a way for you to use photographs of yourself, to help you align with what you desire. I am so excited about "Soul Sessions!" It will inspire you to move forward toward your dreams and goals. Learn More

My love affair with photography is a long one. At 15, shooting black & white film for my high school paper, I discovered and fell in love with the dance between light and shadow and it's ability to create subtle and sometimes surreal qualities within an image. Qualities that evoke thought and emotion. The love of this dance led me to art school where I immersed myself in the medium and now over 25 years later, I still find myself utterly amazed that pictures can be captured at all! While I will always appreciate great black & white photography, today I also enjoy shooting rich colorful images. Get in touch and let's talk about the possibilities. Take a look at the "Sessions" page and see what's right for you.

Thank you for taking the time to peruse this site, and I hope that we can make some beautiful photographs together. I wish you all peace, love, light & shadows!
