(that's me!)

opia glow...?

uhhhhh

what the *BLANK* does opia even mean?!?

fun fact, 'opia' is the intensity of eye contact! listen, i get it; eye contact can be scary and getting your picture taken can feel weirdly vulnerable... BUT! it can also be SUPER FUN and really freaking liberating! think about all those times you've stared fear in the face and come out STRONGER and BETTER??

 

that's what eye contact means to me - being FIERCE, BOLD, and YOU!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

i'm a weird combination of FASHION and COUPLES photographer...crazy, right? uh YEAHH, crazy AWESOME!! it's awesome because it means i *live* for the wild, eclectic couple, or the funky, out-there brand. i'm *all* about capturing the beauty in the REAL! does your dream outfit involve wearing leopard print combat boots, a bright orange dress, and a GUCCI amount of layers?? more like dream YASSSS! do you want to find your inner model and/or grab your partner's booty (with consent, obviously)? OMG, those are two of my FAVORITE THINGS - what are the odds?!

i don't like the idea that 'moody' and 'playful' HAVE to be mutually exclusive - we're multifaceted human beings and i wanna capture alllllll those amazing complexities. let's get dramatic one minute (vogue. it. out!), then have a tickle fight the next!!
