From there I follow the light and let the creativity flow.
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
Obtained degrees in photography and sociology, practiced lots of yoga and meditation, said yes nearly every gig.
FOR OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR FIELD, WHAT DO THEY USUALLY LACK?
Human connection. The click of a shutter is a solitary act, but when the subject is a person, like any relationship that connection has to be built on trust and respect. This premise is easily lost in the business side of things or the values of the fashion world
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
Editing a maternity session, customizing my HoneyBook account, sending out contracts and creating a blog post/zine of the tour I was recently on with the bands Bleached and Criminal Hygiene.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE?
Clean, Emotive, eternal nostalgia for the 50s ad 60s.

My laundry, cull photos, social media management, bake cookies and brew me another damn fine cup of coffee.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
I graduated from Sonoma State University in 2008 with a degree in photography but left with no digital experience and didn't touch a camera for nearly 3 years after. I wish I would have told myself to 'Keep Making' and 'Keep Learning'
