My story

 

Upon inheriting my Grandmother’s film cameras after her passing as a teenager, I fell endlessly and deeply in love with the process of witnessing life through film. It became the lens through which I processed the transformational cycles of living, photographing nature through her cycles of decay and bloom, and seeing this mirrored in myself and all beings. Taking photos became an outlet for me to remember how beautiful this life is, in all its mysterious phases, both light and shadow.

My medium

 

For the past decade-plus I have been around the world shooting 35 mm, 120 mm, and polaroid film content, not only for designers, brands, healers, online and print publications, retreats, and artists, but also for myself as an avenue of deep healing, learning to intimately see myself, and others, through the lens of love, truth, acceptance, and sacredness.

What I love about film photography is the grounded presence, trust, and patience it asks of you. There is no instant gratification or immediate results. It isn’t a medium of expression that can be rushed, manipulated, or even perfected. I am not focused on the outcome, but the feeling of being present in co-creation with nature, and my subjects.

Intention

 

My photography work is rooted in intention. It is a ritual of returning to your inner muse, to nature, to your truest embodiment. I pre-treat many of my rolls of film in an intuitive botanical potion to bring an alchemy of intentional energy to each roll shot, creating unique magic that unfolds during the ceremony of shooting. In my sessions we connect intimately to the land we are creating on, and our hearts. We set intentions, create sacred space, commune with the plants, and dance with the shadows and the light. Each shoot becomes a story told by the sacred humming of our hearts, the heart of the Earth, and the rhythm of creation.

Within this medium,
 
I am available for ceremonial portrait sessions, retreats, transformational photo packages, brand content packages, editorial stories, album art, and more. To collaborate, please get in touch and fill out the form below.
Ceremonial
Portrait Sessions
 
$555 — 2.5 hours of connecting/creating, one location, and 22 final edited photos.
 

Connect to your embodied truth, witness your innate beauty, and feel empowered as YOU, as you step into being seen. Not unlike the rest of my work, these are very much healing experiences—an act of self-love and liberation. We connect and set intentions while drinking herbal infusions specifically alchemized for your session, and ground into the land before beginning with a guided meditation. Throughout the session, we connect intimately with nature and the elemental world to bring forth your most grounded and confident Self. What I find most healing about this work is that it reflects you your nature, your beauty, and simply allows you to be seen for who you are, in connection to the natural world and love all around.

  • These sessions include one alchemized film potion for your session to call in the energy you are wishing to embody. This is a process that takes up to 3 weeks where I commune with a specific combination of elemental allies to create a natural potion which I charge your film in at my altar. This creates quite the magical, mysterious effect in the film and brings beautiful energy and color to the photos.
  • Videography is available to be added for an additional fee

Retreat
 
Photography
 

I am available for capturing your retreat. I have photographed retreats from The Sierra Mountains to the mountains of Northern Italy. My gifts of seeing energy and communing with spirit are reflected in this work. I like to be involved in the experience of the retreat to accurately capture it, but also tend to act a bit like a fly on the wall and simply witness the alchemical process that is happening among the group. Since I don’t have a ton of equipment, just me and my film camera, I tend to go unnoticed while capturing ceremonies, but also respect your wishes and needs as you create sacred space. I am also available to offer ceremonial portrait sessions as a part of your retreat or event. Reach out for rates as they vary upon location/length of time.

  • My ceremonial photoshoot with Ash was a mix of an alchemical process and an honoring of myself. Ash eloquently captured my essence in my element with grace and intuition. I have never felt so fearless behind the lens of her camera. I was able to step into an aura of who I really am while being guided by my personal allies and Blue Lotus which was channeled by Ash to support me. Following our photoshoot I continued to work with the herbal blend provided by Ash, allowing me to further honor my being and who I really am. Once the photos arrived, it opened my heart to acceptance and my divinity.

  • All photography is captured on film, excluding the video content. Film photography is raw, messy, grainy, imperfect, and magical, just like you. Not every photo is perfect but is an art piece that captures the energy of the moment.
  • A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required immediately at booking, the rest will be paid in full the day that we create.
  • Turn around to receive final images is about 30-45 days from the day of shooting, but will vary on the size of the project.
  • Traveling – I am available for travel when aligned, though my travel rates may differ from what is listed above. Reach out if you have a vision in mind and want to connect, otherwise, I am based on the Mendocino coast, just a short drive for anyone in the Bay Area, with the most breathtaking, magical locations of dramatic coastlines, ancient redwood forests, secluded beaches, rivers, and even dreamy sand dunes. I also tend to be in Southern California every few months.
  • Cancellations and Rescheduling – Life is always changing and evolving. I am typically flexible with rescheduling if needed, but any cancellations or rescheduling (excluding weather issues/illness/sudden emergencies) less than 5 days in advance will forfeit your deposit.
