Stop being afraid of the camera

“My senior photo for the high school yearbook.”   This is the #1 answer I get when I ask women to remember the last time they had their portrait taken. It’s a heartbreaking answer, isn’t it?

Do you know what I usually hear following that answer?   “No one wants photos of me.” “I need to lose 20 pounds first.” “I just want photos of my children.” “If only I was younger.” “I’m…

Finding My Calling

My love for female portraiture started when I was a little girl. I’ve used paint, charcoal, pencil, pastel… any medium I could get my hands on. Here are a few sketches from high school that have survived over time. Today, I paint with light. I believe I was born to capture the beauty of women. “Exquisite beauty resides rather in the female form than face, where it is also more lasting.” Alphonse de Lamartine I’ve always been fascinated by the female form whether through illustration, sculpture, sketches or paintings. This has carried over…

Time for Self Care

I’ve been putting off making this announcement until I had solid dates to give you. I will be undergoing surgery on February 1st, 2018 and will be unable to work again until March 16th, 2018.

If you’ve been thinking about having a session, I still have several weekdays open from now until mid-January. You’ll want to schedule your consultation soon. I will still be taking appointments for the end of March and beyond…

Wardrobe additions are here.

I scour the internet and vintage stores for unique pieces to add to my studio wardrobe. Sometimes I strike out… but sometimes I find gems like these vintage Victorian collars. I’ve re-purposed them to accessorize simple dresses and slips to create something new and beautiful.
