About Me

February 05, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I've always loved to create beauty. I began expressing my artistic strengths as a hair stylist and make-up artist, which led me to open and co-own  salon Lunatic Fringe, in Sugar House Utah. After having a bit of success, I decided it was time to further nurture my artistic abilities and satiate my need for experience!

I started working with photographer Justin Grant. As his success grew he needed a team, and appointed me as lead stylist, make-up artist, and producer. I was in LOVE! Being on set was exhilarating, fulfilling, and overall, just a great time! Naturally, working with a photographer, made the artist in me hunger for this new medium to create. Taking a leap of faith (in myself) I purchased thousands of dollars worth of equipment and journeyed around the world learning all the tricks of this new trade. Currently, I'm based in Salt Lake City, Utah where I get to combine all of my passions and I specialize in boudoir, maternity, wedding, and couture bridal photography.

This blog isn't about what I DO for work, but rather what I EXPERIENCE with my work and those I work with. Its about the  vast number of ways I manage to find and create beautiful.  I feel that beauty and inspiration go hand in hand. I believe in self-love, self-respect, and self-confidence because external beauty is fostered internally. For inspirational thoughts, makeup tips and tricks, solutions to bad hair day conundrums, and behind-the-scenes looks at my photos, follow me weekly and let's create!
