I create soulful images and films full of emotion, love, and real moments that are so timeless and classic that looking back at them transports people right back to that moment in time and brings on a wave of nostalgia so real that they feel it in their bones.
I started out filming families, using just my camera and my instincts. My love for video came from a lifetime of involvement in the creative arts as a singer, musician, actress, and photographer with a love for storytelling. My dad made home movies of me has a child, which are now my family's most treasured possessions to date and fuel my passion for filming my own family.
With his encouragement, I started shooting video on my DSLR and fell in love with the entire process of filming, incorporating music, and storytelling. What I love the most about filmmaking is that each time I watch a film I've made of my children, I feels like I am able to relive those moments over and over.
The clients I work with seek me out for my approach to documenting everyday life and ability to create beautiful images for them without any pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They tend to feel a strong connection to their home, to their family, and to the idea of preserving memories and stories that can be handed down to their children and their children's children.
In 2017 I was named one of Clickin Mom's Top 100 Photographers to Watch, was interviewed on the PhotobizXPosed Podcast, and presented at The Baby Summit - an international conference for photographers.
In 2018 I created the FilmingLife Academy, and have taught filmmaking to hundreds of family photographers world wide. On June 20/21 I will be teaching a class at CreativeLive, and in August I'll be teaching at The Family Narrative in Sydney, Australia.
