Portrait & event photographer in the Bloomington-Columbus IN area.

I don't really know exactly when my love for photography started. Long before I got my first DSLR at the age of 15, I was fascinated with capturing every aspect of the world around me.
An impromptu photoshoot with a friend a few years ago made me realize that portrait photography is where my passion lies. There is something indescribable about recording a single moment in someone's life, yet somehow also capturing all their complexities.
Inspired by Humans of New York's incredible ability to bridge the gaps between people, I created 'Portraits of IU' during my time at Indiana University with that goal in mind: use photography and stories to bring people closer together.
In the past 4 years, I have photographed hundreds of people. From quick photos of strangers and professional head shots to engagement photos and personal conceptual photoshoots, I have loved every moment.
