My photo career started with macro floral photography. What's that you ask? I basically had the goal of selling my fine art images in Z Gallerie, Nordstrom and the like. I sold prints on the beach with my new dreams beginning to bud. I never even dreamed of photographing people until one day my neighbor asked me to take photos of her two year old child. I was hesitant because, well let's face it, flowers are MUCH easier to photograph than two year olds! I wanted to try my hand at it though and luckily for me, she was the most well behaved two year old I've ever met. Since then, I've been shooting portraits, weddings and commercial for over 12 years. While I still shoot portraits and weddings, my work has circled back to my love of interior design with shooting homes and product. It keeps me balanced to shoot a variety of things and keeps me creatively on my toes.
My work has been published in Utah Bride and Groom and Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom. Since entering into the Interior and Architectural photography world, you can see my work in Utah Style and Design, and national magazines such as Cottages and Bungalows, Flea Market Decor, oh and UK Vogue Magazine! (woot woot!) and more.
In 2014, a unique opportunity fell into my lap. The universe handed me a rough space over 100 years old, with no insulation (or electricity), a leaky roof and.... a ton of potential. I went to creating and designing something that I later discovered was on my Pinterest board as "dream places to shoot". Be careful what you pin! :). The Loft Studio was "born", a literally vision in my head that came to life. The studio is a unique asset that greatly benefits my clients, both product and portrait.
Because I have learned so much over the last 12 years, I feel it is time to give back. I am currently offering one on one mentoring and also host a series of workshops.
When I am not creating or doing client work, I find myself balancing my life doing fun things with my 3 children and hubby, such as biking, hiking, boating, dancing and going to the movies and easily finishing off a whole box of milk-duds.
