A bourbon-by-the-campfire kind of person

Dog mama

I want to travel everywhere I've never been

Desert soul

Tattoo lover

I miss the ocean

send me a message

"he not busy being born,

is busy dying."

I think you're beautiful.

This isn't my job. This is my purpose. There’s a difference. It’s about my perception, my motivation, and my inspiration. It’s about what drives me to put myself out there and invite you to ask me to step into your life for a brief, incredibly important moment in time to capture something magical, something meaningful. It’s about that human connection. The human condition. The why behind everything we do.

It’s about a trust that you offer up to me for something irreplaceable in return. It’s about the thing I believe in above all else, the thing that matters most, The thing I have fought for in my own life and will continue to fight for, every damn day.

it’s all about that love.

love + place

These are the only ingredients we need to create the art that is your life.

If you were to ask me which places tug at my heart strings, I would say

the desert,

anywhere on the Colorado Plateau, right after the sun goes down.

Then I'd say

standing on the shores of the Pacific, cold beer in my hand.

I'd say the Wind River Range in Wyoming,

& the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

I'd say coffee shops all over the country, sitting across from Casey.

I'd say any couch with one of our dogs in my lap.

tell me about your place

I want to take the trip, get the tattoo, see the show, book the flight, take the risk.

I love experiencing new places and I love taking long road trips. All that said, I'm not an extrovert. I stay home more nights than I go out, and I prefer a lot of quiet time throughout the day. I'd rather share a bottle of vino with a few close friends on the back porch than go to a massive party. I've been an athlete my whole life. from competitive gymnastics, track & field, & water polo, to volleyball in college, and now weight training, mountain biking, running & triathlons, I have always loved being physical and getting out of my head and into my body.

I don't mind getting in the dirt and I love pushing myself to my physical & mental limits on a regular basis. I also have a solid addiction to French style, 70's vibes, vintage shopping, natural wines & red lipstick. Because balance.

I was born and raised in San Diego, so a love of the ocean and wide open spaces are in my veins..

We eloped in January in Las Vegas, deciding to do it about 5 days before we left town. We bought shoes the morning of, and said 'I do" at a chapel in a sketchy part of town. I can't ever remember being as happy as I was that day, and the only other person there with us was our photographer. We ran through the streets and played the slots, we danced and drank champagne from the bottle. Then we grabbed In-N-Out for dinner and everything was perfect because it was ours.
