ABOUT ME

Love of photography started early for me. Living on a cattle ranch, hearing horses knickering as they unloaded out of the trailer – ready to work. Huge oak trees slightly bending in the wind. Thunder storms cracking over head while driving 200 head of steers to winter pasture. Sunrises followed by dust of convoys of horse trailers all urged me to document.

I was noticed by family and friends as the photographer in the area. It started with a small clientele and each year it grew and grew.  When I was 18 years old, I bought my first decent camera (a Canon Rebel from Costco) and it unnerved me so much that I missed the exit off the highway to head home. How could I have spent that much on a camera?! Looking back I have to laugh a little about thinking that was so spendy haha this profession is not for the tight pocketed.

These days I document more love than ranch life, but I feel that they go hand in hand. Meeting new couples, traveling around – appreciating the landscapes – always. Everyday I see things that inspire me. Wind blowing horses mane, a couple walking on the street, the way the sun shines through on a foggy morning.

MY LOVE

I was put on this earth to photograph people and to love + terrorize Tanner Ramos. We got hammered at an open bar one October and have been together ever since. Since we have been together, my need to document love drives me even more. There are so many scary things in the world but to be loved is the safest place on earth. So corny – I kinda want to delete that but its true. We have moved three times, gone through losing loved ones, changed jobs, saved a man in an accident and survived roping together. I spend a lot of time hiding under the bed waiting for him to walk by so I can grab his leg or attacking him with boa constrictor like hugs when he walks through the door. Lemme tell yah for someone who hates being confined and is a little squirrely this can be a little tricky. Being away from him and home is the hardest part of being a photographer. Traveling is the best and worst part of the job but these dreams just don’t chase themselves!
