I'm based out of Houston, Texas. I've lived and traveled all over the U.S., though I consider New Mexico home. I live with my husband and my cat, and we like to save whatever extra money we come by to travel and camp. I also have a graduate degree in political science, so I do what I can to help out local campaigns.

My favorite photo sessions involve being outdoors, and thankfully, we've found some great places to take pictures through our travels. Specifically, I am prepared to drive within a five-hour radius of Houston (six, if you really want me to come to New Orleans!). This means that San Antonio, College Station, Austin, and Dallas/Ft. Worth are all doable, with enough notice. Or, come to Houston, and I'll show you Hermann Park, Buffalo Bayou, Brazos Bend, and George Bush Park.

I use a Canon 70D and prefer to shoot at locations chosen by the client. In certain situations, especially weddings, I bring along my husband as a lighting assistant—and he's a pretty friendly guy. When the photo session is complete, I select as many photos as possible that I believe the client will want, and then I edit all of them in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Turnaround is often under a week!
