black and white photograph of a girl in indianapolis

A little bit of whimsey and some natural grace go a long way. I love telling stories with my photography that is inspired by classic elegance and things of old. I have a bit of an old soul. I grew up reading old classic novels, listening to old music, watching tons of old sitcoms (I do love Lucy), and feeling like I was born in the wrong time. As I got older, I began embracing the current time period more, but I still feel the past tugging on my heart strings. I love looking at old, moody black and white photos from the 50s and 60s more than any other kind of photo. All of those things seep into my work as a photographer, and I love it.

Is all about looking polished in your photographs, while still looking natural and like your true self. I'm not huge on complex posing or cheesy set ups. I like everything to be believable, fun, and organic. I also don't believe in tons of airbrushing on my clients. A little here and there to clean up blemishes or correct colors and textures in photographs is all it takes. The rest is you, organically and gracefully.

My approach to photographing portraits is to have fun but to always maintain dignity. I believe that women are so much more than a pretty face or a hanger for clothes or an object to photograph. Women have hopes, dreams, fears, struggles, regrets, accomplishments, aspirations, and opinions. I'm curious about the inner lives of women, and about their voice, their story, their hearts. As a woman myself, I hope to photograph portraits in such a way that I capture not only women's beauty, but their strength and power as well. That's part of what the name "Blossom + Brick" is meant to represent.
