Born in Louisiana (the city), Missouri (the state), on the banks of the mighty Mississippi (the river) I was given the name of a French actress my mother saw on tv, forever imbuing me with a love for all things French.
I grew up in the Midwest, spending most of my time meandering in the creek near our farm, with my best friend, my dog Snoopy. As a teenager, I began to notice that I mentally composed what I observed into still black and white images, and I wondered if I might have a talent for photography. I took a community college class–Photo 101, and hung out in downtown St. Louis, trying to blend into walls, and capture people and life–in fact "truth" on film. I was hooked!
I set off for Santa Barbara to attend Brooks Institute and learn the craft of photography in a hilltop mansion overlooking the ocean.
After graduating with a BA, I worked my way up from apprentice to advertising photographer and have been lucky enough to work in this industry ever since.
I now live by the sea, in Santa Monica, and have my studio in Hollywood. I love the ocean, the mountains, biking, playing pool & reading (never enough time)!!
I like to surround my self with talented, hard working, funny, cool people…no drama, no egos.
My goal: To make something significant or beautiful, maybe even both, and have fun doing it!

For me, photography has always been about exploration. It’s about solving problems, whether it be creative or technical. It’s about learning new ways of seeing and being able to share that vision with the world.
My process is based on authenticity and creating comfortable environments where real interactions can happen. It’s about enjoyment, about seeing people enjoy what I make, and about learning which lens each project or client require me to look through.
I am a creative thinker with a blue collar work ethic. I work hard and expect those around me to do the same, but I make sure we’re all having fun. I am patient, flexible and understanding and I know how to tell stories that relate to real people.

When someone asks what I do I tell them I’m a photographer. The next question inevitably is "what kind of photographer?" Well, that’s a little tricky because I love shooting everything. It could be a national advertising campaign on location for Marriott Hotels in Mexico or shooting food in my full service 3000 sq. ft. studio for Publix or Boar’s Head. Also, It might be filming a TV spot in the Dominican Republic for Iberostar Hotels and lets not forget the family who I like to shoot while I’m on vacation. So you might say it doesn’t matter if it’s real people, talent, stills or video, personal or for hire. I love capturing the moment that I’m in. Of course, none of this can be done without working with the best people in the industry: Talent agencies, producers, assistants, wardrobe, hair & makeup, food-stylists, prop masters, retouchers and editors. I know, I sound like a jack of all trades but I love it all. So I invite you to take a look at the work and decide which side of my business is best for a project we can work on together.
