I’m a small-town Pittsburgh photographer with big dreams and a vision to inspire all of the babes.
Very into: Super Sweet Coffees, a fun girl’s night out, and intentionally creating a life that you can be madly obsessed with. Avoiding small talk since 1991.
I didn’t always have my dreamy little studio where I get to empower women and play dress up all day.
In fact, just a decade ago my passion for photography began when I was studying at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I learned how to use my camera and started having fun shooting weddings. I quickly realized that shooting weddings wasn’t my calling, I preferred to focus on capturing the individual beauty of the bride and making her feel like a queen. This passion for glamour and beauty has been the cornerstone of my photography ever since.
Photographing women, empowering women, and uplifting women is my main goal. I aim to capture the individual beauty of every client and help them feel confident, beautiful, and empowered. Whether you’re looking to capture your spicy chapter or create a stunning wall portrait, you can trust that I will bring out the goddess in you.
I probably should have known that the girl who spent her days primping Barbie out on my dad’s old computer in the dining room over and over again, would become a glam photographer empowering babes with hair, makeup, wardrobe, photoshop and all the poses.
I am probably cuddling with my baby and tickling his little feet while dreaming of ways for my hubby and me to get from where we are to where we want to be.
WANT TO KNOW WHAT LIGHTS ME UP?
In case you’re new around here, I believe there is a Goddess inside each of us. It’s our job to let her beauty shine and most importantly to let her feel beautiful. I believe that it’s truly our job to let her live a life that she’s most proud.
Watching a woman who feels like ABSOLUTE 'BLA' - get transformed in my studio with hair and makeup, then perk up in front of my camera. What lights me up is when she sees herself in the portfolio I’ve created. I light up when she tells me that she has the desire to display every photo we took in her home or on her Instagram because she feels so dang beautiful. THIS is what makes me feel like I’ve done my job.
A FEW OF THE THINGS I ANSWER TO:
I've literally created my dream career out of thin air. Photography is my jam, and beauty is my talent.
I still can't believe that Baby J is all ours. He's the sweetest little gem.
If I could make art all day every day...I would. When I look through my camera, it gives me life each time.
It’s weird when Sam calls me by my name. We’re just “babe” to one another. Cue the pet name jokes.
My Pooh Bear is my spirit animal. l adore him with my whole soul. He's my partner in crime and has been through so much of my journey with me.
