We prioritise giving our clients a great experience and making them feel relaxed, how do you do that?
I love hearing where people grew up and their stories, so I love to engage, ask questions and genuinely love getting to know people. One of my best qualities is that I am a good listener. I believe in keeping it light hearted and easy going so that both parties are free to express (as if they were old friends) and just be themselves. Its all about enjoying and being present in the moment.
What do you love about working for Hey Saturday?
I love that Hey Saturday provides a platform in todays tech savvy world, that reminds the client that there are limits to camera cell phones / selfies, whereas hiring a photographer allows us to connect and capture the 'authentic self' of each client. It is an essential, organic, profound and a uniquely disarming experience that results in photos that not only define & highlight the clients features but more importantly their true essence. Plus I simply love that it’s an adventure getting to know someone, listening to their stories and making them feel good by capturing their uniqueness in the moment.
Who would be your dream client and why?
Aside from the entire cast of SNL from 1975 to present day (true)... I would say, a client who is excited to be on the shoot, let their guard down and truly enjoy our photo adventure together!
What's your top dating tip?
Just be unapologetically YOU.
Currently obsessed with:
My nikon FM2 35mm camera - netflix binging - wearing unique, fun, bold socks.
Playing on repeat on my iPod:
Nina Simone / Leon Bridges / Rhye / Sylvan Esso / Rhiannon Giddens / Lake Street Drive / Galactic / Chet Faker / The xx / The Beatles / Queen / Van Morrison and recently tons of musical soundtracks because my kiddo and I love musical theater!
At my happiest when:
Anytime I get with my kiddo. Aside from that, a long drive with music playing and my camera in the passenger seat.. heading out on a photo adventure. I am also happiest when I find little ways to pay it forward through volunteering.
Fave style icon:
I don’t really have one. I sorta do my own thing with whatever is comfortable and makes me feel good!
Most into wearing:
A lot of black… with my favorite pair of boots and if we are lucky enough in LA to have weather below 70 degrees, a soft warm scarf! (don’t be jealous)
Binge watching baking shows with my kiddo or a delicious taco with guacamole (carne asada or chicken in case you were wondering)
Saturday nights are for:
Watching a good movie or SNL (especially re-watching older episodes from 1975 thru all the 80’s & 90’s)
