Hello and thank you for visiting my website,

My purpose was not to be a photographer. My purpose is to transform people with my photography. A portrait is so many things more than just a photograph of you. It's a celebration of who you are, a discovery and a legacy. I feel like when I put a camera up your inner soul comes forward. I also see everything you don't like about yourself, your confidence, how you hold yourself, how you feel about your body. My purpose is that if I can show you how beautiful you are and that's not the outside It's the inside and there's a strange connection when you look good you feel good. When you feel good you look good and that moment is priceless and I love doing it. I see tears , I see people realize their true beauty. It's a gift.

My brand is a valuable legacy brand , a contemporary portrait studio who specializes in vanity fair style portraits and a celebrity experience for everyday women that is transformative, life changing, and addictive that they want to come back every year to experience the ultimate beauty experience.


I know what beautiful looks like and i know how to capture it on camera. I want to photograph every woman, who has ever looked in the mirror and not felt beautiful or good enough. My passion is to take the most beautiful photographs that you've ever seen of yourself, because I believe that every woman deserves to have a beautiful portrait of herself. The women I have photographed for my portfolio are not models - they are moms, daughters, sisters, business women, housewives and grandmothers who decided to get in front of the camera and get some beautiful portraits. Most of them were avoiding the camera for years and realized that since their wedding photos, they haven't had any professional photos taken and as the years went by, they stopped existing in photos . I've heard it all before - "oh no, not me - just children", "i'm not photogenic", "oh no, i hate having my photos taken", "i need to loose weight" , "oh no, i'm too old" or "i feel awkward in front of the camera". The good news is, that you don't need to worry about any of those things, as it is my job as a photographer to make you relaxed in front of the camera, connect with you and gently guide you through posing that flatter you and your body - regardless of your dress size or age - so that we create the most beautiful photographs that you've ever seen of yourself. Photographs that capture your beauty and your personality - portraits that you'll be proud of and that you'll love and then lovingly pass on to your children. I want to show you how beautiful you are and help you reconnect with the woman you maybe haven't seen for some time and be awed by her again - the gorgeous woman that you thought you'd lost. You are perfect right now, just as you are - there has never been a more perfect time. Choose to exist in photographs for yourself, for your children and people who love you. One day these photographs will be priceless. Your children will hold them dear and they will remember you as you are today and they will treasure them forever. Let your imagination run wild, this is the time to design and experience your dream photo shoot and get photos, that you've always admired in the lifestyle magazines - but featuring you .... how do you dream of being photographed ? 


The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self.Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.
