winter winds

A chilly afternoon in the sun and wind with this beautiful adventurer.

This is Kayla, a humble, ambitious, inspired individual with a story to tell.

cayetana

This is Cayetana (KAY-tee-AH-nah), and she lives in Nebraska. Cayetana is one of the most sparkly, bubbly souls you will ever meet. She is full of energy, empathy, and mischief. I was so delighted to be able to go out into the countryside of Nebraska for a mini session with her this summer.

Special shoutout to my friend Jules for helping out with this one! So happy with these. (:

sisterhood ii

Sisterhood, part II. The second of a new personal series, designed to stretch me as an artist and challenge to capture the living, breathing, and moving character in a person or relationship.

Alright guys, I think it's time you meet Juliana and Kirrily, some very dear friends of mine. Something I loved about shooting these two was the challenge and intrigue of capturing their great differences. I made an effort to keep in mind their story: how they have gone from being drastically different, and even somewhat distant most of their lives, to becoming good friends in the past couple of years. What a beautiful image of learning to treasure the things you have always had.

Everybody, meet Leah and Megan. Not only are they sisters but they are also best friends. It has been quite an experience watching them grow as individuals over the years, solidifying their personal characters and becoming increasingly more confident in the lovely women they are. But even further than that, I have witnessed their relationship, as they have changed, stay just as strong and honest as it ever was. Like many sisters, their differences can at some times be great. But, unlike many, these ones trust and rely on each other as friends as well.

vintage kelsie

The lovely Kelsie, a fellow photographer (see her work here) and I went on a spontaneous, vintage-inspired weekend photoshoot this fine cloudy day. It was such a gift to get the creative juices flowing again with her: traipsing around the city's little rusty brick corners, hopping around, scaling walls and bridges in ridiculously high heels. Along with being an incredibly imaginative, comfortable and encouraging photographer and friend, Kelsie also happens to be a striking model. Please enjoy!

dawning colors

Early one chilly October morning, when the sun kissed our cold skin. What a dazzling sunrise.

woodland bird

Meet Beth, a stunning creative who is full of energy, passion, and joy. She is a huge people person (I admire that) and an incredible actress and artist. It's taken me a long time to get this one up, but it was such a fun creative endeavor with such a gifted young lady!

Queen of the Gingers and such a passionate, creative and smiley soul.
