I'm a 33-year-old photographer and educator from Durham, North Carolina.
I have a Master’s of Fine Arts in Educational Media Production. I value the importance of time, community, and reflection. I believe that being a life-long learner is the key to being a successful, happy and thriving bad-ass photographer.
Shoot From The Heart IS...
about finding inspiration in yourself, your clients and the environment around you. It’s about learning how to slow down, pay attention and making room for spontaneity. It’s about letting go of fear, taking risks and making yourself vulnerable. It’s about opening up your heart and creating the work that you’ve always dreamed of.
I’ll teach you how I created a totally authentic and organic audience in several niches by taking risks, putting myself out there and doing what my heart longed for with self-portraits, musician art, live interview podcasts, double exposure photography, cinemagraphs, experimental videos, guest blogging, and much more!
I’ll show you how to strategically experiment during client shoots, edit from feeling and how to take the first steps towards building the business of your dreams!
