I've fallen in love with California, Arizona, Australia and the South of France. I love traveling and learning more about other cultures. I believe in heritage, in creating timeless, luminous & elegant heirlooms, in quality over quantity, in tangible prints & handmade albums and in creating beautiful legacies. I love organic and handmade products. Nature and light inspire me.
Dogs and horses are my favorites.
When I started out with wedding photography in 2006 there were hardly any workshops to attend. There was no facebook or instagram. Connecting with other photographers was challenging to say the least. When I did find photographers willing to help me on my way, I always vowed to pay it forward. Which is why I'm such a believer in community over competition.
People sometimes ask me if teaching other photographers makes me scared. Scared that I'm giving away my "secrets". Truth be told, there will always be copycats out there, whether you share your secrets with them or not. So why not help other photographers find their voice and style.
Together we can raise the bar for our industry. Together we are stronger.
I cannot wait to connect with you and chat over a cup of tea about this thing we are SO passionate about: photography <3

It might be the fine art photographer in me, but I'm obsessed with olive trees. I need to photograph them always.
Nature and beautiful, natural light are great sources of inspiration for me. I love photographing in natural environments.
It's the only thing you buy, that makes you richer.
My Ariat cowboy boots are my favorites. I have multiple pairs, they are the most comfortable boots ever. When it's too hot outside, I switch them for flip flops.
Growing up I used to ride horses on a weekly basis. I still adore horses and riding so much and cannot wait to get back to it on a regular basis.
My daily ritual 5 days a week.
I definitely like dressing up for weddings and parties, but nothing beats wearing denim and plaid. I guess you can say that I'm a cowgirl at heart.
