With each client that I work with I believe there is a story to be told.
Whether I’m photographing an equestrian business facility, taking photographs of a rider and their horse, or designing a website I believe in capturing the feeling and connection that both interior spaces and animals possess. With a background in interior design, photography, and horseback riding, I am able to capture the still and quiet moments of interiors, horses, and riders alike. Throughout my work I aim to maintain a consistent aesthetic that is calm, neutral, and intimate. My end goal is to give my clients and followers a nostalgic and comforting feeling when they look back at my images.
I was born and raised in Northern Virginia just outside of Washington D.C. I grew up riding horses in Nokesville at Oakridge Stables with Karla Williams and Peggy Smith. Learning early on the importance of safety within my sport and the responsibility and care that goes into it and horses. I rode at the same barn from the time I was ten until I was eighteen, competing locally at VHSA and BHSA horse shows as well as riding on my barns equestrian team.
Education & Experience
I attended The Art Institute of Washington where I studied photography and graphic design. From there I went on to continue photography studies at Northern Virginia Community College as well as some web design and more graphic design courses. I also have a certificate in Social Media Management from Northwestern University and have done photography for multiple brands.
For years I worked on building my own social media presence, accumulating over 50k followers on my blog and 30k on my Pinterest. From there I went on to manage the social media and marketing for a local brewery in Warrenton and a remodeling firm in Fairfax County.
Through the years I’ve continued to stay involved with horses, as a working student at a large facility in Nokesville and more recently caring for a small group of retired horses in Oakton. I thrive on helping others tell their story through images and prose. I believe the equestrian community is a group of smart, strong willed, and independent individuals but everyone needs a little help bringing their vision into fruition sometimes.
