Some facts about me:

Yes you read it right on the home page - call me Po! It was a nickname first given me to in high school + now travels through all seasons of life with me. I will most likely have an iced coffee in hand when I'm working and a blue moon in hand on my days off. I absolutely love traveling while also cozying up on the couch. Best of both words, am I right?! Adele is my girl boss crush cause who else could it truly be? When I'm editing, I probably have a reality tv show on in the background. It's somehow motivating, okay?!

a little more about me!

To be honest, photography was a dream of mine I put off for quite sometime. And the only reason I kept pushing away my dream was because of fear. If you're reading this + you're afraid to chase after your dreams - I'm here to say go for it! There's so much growth waiting for you and life is truly too short not to be spending it doing what you love. I wanted to include these words on my website + I think this is the best place for them to live.

All aside, I love photography because of you - my clients. I've discovered such a happiness + passion in allowing others to be themselves in their special season of life. To make space for a connection that can be found when we slow down and focus on each other. The type of moments that give you butterflies + wish you could stay forever in. Life can move fast but to give you photographs that hold feeling, are less than perfect and full of pure emotions that will never let you forget how special it felt in real time. That's what I freaking love. That's my why.

WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT BRINGING

1. letting your true self shine through

Come as you are. No pressure or standard is expected!

2. capturing real emotions + moments

No stiff or awkward poses here! I focus on connection in whatever way is natural to you.

3. letting moments become memories

Besides all the pictures, I hope you walk away feeling more confident, even more in love and smiling so hard with your best friend that your cheeks hurt.
