Hey again! So, you want to know more about me? Let me give you the run down on all things me. Like I said on the home page, I am a 20 year old portrait photographer based in Kansas City. But, I am wanting to travel! (psssst...let me travel to you and take your photos)

I have been a professional portrait photographer for a little over 4 years now. Let me just say, I LOVE my job. I feel like I am living a dream that I get to do what I love everyday. I promise, you will see my passion for taking photos at our photoshoot. 

I mainly photograph seniors and couples, but am starting to dip my toes into the wedding scene. Although, that is not my main goal. My biggest dream is to become a professional editorial photographer. I am obsessed with anything involving fashion. I have been published in two editorial magazines! One in France and the other in Spain!  *Currently manifesting my photography being on a page in Vogue*


so what do you say?

the little things

This is my puppy, Luna Grace! She's a black lab beagle mix and she is the love of my life! She enjoys hanging out at the dog park,  eating peanut butter, & watching TV. Yes, I am one of those dog moms. Embarrassing, I know. But if you also have a fur baby, you understand.

This is my roomie and second shooter, Bella! You can find her @bellagracecorderoart! She is the coolest person I have ever met and truly inspires me to create stories in my photos. We stan Bella Cordero in this house.

This is my favorite human that I share this lifetime with! He is my boyfriend of 3 years & his name is McCain! He is my high school sweetheart & has done nothing but support me and my business since he's known me. He is the best. Everyone deserves a McCain! (But not mine lol)

I am currently a Junior at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I am studying Health Science and will be graduating with my Bachelor's degree in 2o22! I had plans on being a Veterinarian, but now plan on doing photography full time after college.
