Trained as a clinical social worker, I turned to photography while raising my own children. I have spent much of the past decade photographing families (mine and other people’s) while also immersing myself in several long-term documentary projects.

This award-winning work has been featured in exhibitions and respected publications at home and abroad, and I have work in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. I am a recipient of the Duke Center for Documentary Studies Essay Prize and was a finalist for the The Arnold Newman Prize. You can see my complete resume here

I’m really most alive when I’m taking photographs. Behind the camera, I’m endlessly curious and engaged, and I think that energy shines through in the photos I create.

But perhaps the simplest and truest thing I can say about my work is this: I fall in love with the people I work with. To me, being invited into your family to do this work is a huge privilege, and there’s nothing that makes me happier. I look forward to working with you.
