I am a pink-haired, adventure-seeking, romance-loving photographer. I have a real passion for the beautiful outdoors, and my photography reflects this through my use of natural light. I gravitate towards a bit more dreamy, light imagery rather than darker tones. Because of my passion for nature, I often shoot in the wild, and have shot for brands such as Parks Project, which benefits National Park conservation. I do live in NYC though, so I use this affinity for greenery as my motivation to get outside and seek out all the urban wonders New York has to offer!
- When I'm not out with my camera (which isn't very often!) I love to explore other creative art forms. I am a figure skater, dancer, and dabble with any arts and crafts I can! I am also an arts and craft coordinator at a summer camp in the Sierra mountains of California, so any chance I get to practice some new crafts is always fun. If I'm not doing art, I love walking dogs, and rock climbing at a local gym!
- I couldn't live without ice cream - or maybe just desserts in general. It seems silly to think that I couldn't LIVE without it, but it does make me truly happy.
- I was (still am) a pretty huge book nerd, and in high school I was voted "Most Likely to Win The Hunger Games" not due to some unique strength, but due to my unconditional love for that book series. Along that vein, I would also dress up in costume in high school to celebrate the release of my favorite books or movies, just for the fun of it!
