"One of the greatest regrets in life is
being what others would want you to be,
rather than being yourself" - Shannon L. Alder
THIS IS ME
ON PHOTOGRAPHY

I believe that every single person is photogenic. Bringing that out in their photos is what gives me the most joy in photography.

I've always had an insatiable creative itch and a desire to make people feel good about themselves, especially if they feel insecure and shy, which is how I felt most of my life. I was (and still am) an introvert and spent most of my angsty teenage years daydreaming about being the next vampire slayer or happily married to Dean Winchester from Supernatural (I still dream about marrying Dean Winchester).

Even though I'm an intovert, I can totally bring the fun when I need to! I really enjoy doing this while I'm shooting, but always keeping a mind that I need to sprint home and get under a blanket with my cats afterwards. 

I hope that some of the photos here on my website inspire you to do a photoshoot, even if you feel that you might not be good enough, or pretty enough, or thin enough. I want to show you that it's O.K. to be your truest, most authentic self and to be proud of who you are. You are good enough to have an amazing photoshoot, regardless of experience or awkwardness.

All humans welcome...

Everyone deserves amazing photos, so don't let social media (or this darn society) dictate your perceptions! Whether you're big, small, gay, straight, short, stocky, tall or from outerspace...I would LOVE to work with you! 

ON THINGS I LOVE

CAMPING

I love everything about camping. Being in nature, campfires, swimming in lakes, not having to shower for 3 days... It's truly my favorite thing in the world to do

CATS

I have two cats named Buffy and Fluffy! I also volunteer at Amsterdam's Animal shelter, taking photos of the cats for their website (but I actually just go there for extra kitty cuddles).

FOOD

I'm not picky...I will eat anything you put in front of me. Except avocado, which I firmly believe is from the devil. 

TRAVEL

Take me everywhere! The excitement of going somewhere new and properly exploring when you get there...that's just the best thing in life. 

TV

I'm a big T.V. junkie and tend to re-watch entire 10-season shows just for funsies. Besides epic tv, I also enjoy gripping documentaries and indie movies. My favorite shows of all time are Buffy The Vampire Slayer and 30Rock

MUSIC

Music is my life-force and I can't go a day without it. When I was younger I used to have a whole backpack full of cassette tapes. Now I just have to make do with a Spotify account.
