Olive Avenue Photography
I have a wild imagination, and a free spirit. My attention to detail on those things will hopefully result in images that move you and everyone I share my work with. My hopes are to someday be a published photographer. I hope to travel this world and photograph epic love in the epic and intimate places. My bucket list: Yosemite, Banff, Ireland, Iceland, Oregon, and of course Hawaii. Things that drive my creative soul; love, movement, color, light, shades of white, fuji greens, filmy textures, laughter, play, dancing, florals, bare feet in the sand or water, stillness, mood... I could go on and on! Couples who would be a perfect fit for my style and personality would be - overly easy going, playful, not afraid to get messy, loud, irreverent but kind, deep, friendly, empathetic, tells fire jokes etc. Haha jk (ish), the best kind of people for me are the kind that love each other! Thats all I could hope for in front of my lens, truly!
I work in a highly saturated industry but I don't let that discourage me from creating images that make my heart happy. To other photographers who may be reading this, don't let it stop you either. It's not all about the money. It's okay to pick up your camera and shoot who/what you want, I think it's easy for us to forget that! Creating is what I do best, I often don't plan things for more than a couple of hours and I love to wait until the last minute that's when my work is very best. Sometimes the night before I have a "for fun" shoot I will start to think to myself that I've lost my creativity and I have no idea what I even want to do for my shoot the next day, but then all of a sudden this vision will pop into my head and I am filled with so much warmth and inspiration, it's almost overwhelming and I can't even sleep that night! Photography saves me. No matter what kind of a rut I'm stuck in with life, I know that all I need is one good creative shoot and I'll be back to myself again.
I'm a genuine and loyal human being and I am not afraid to direct you to get the best possible images. Hire me. Our time together will be everything you have been dreaming of and MORE. I want to capture all of the raw emotion on your wedding day, I want to capture all of the snuggles with you and your children that you bore in your tummy, I want to show you the love and beauty I see within you, I want to let you see the spark between you and your spouse that you fear is dwindling. Let me do that. If you want someone to capture you sitting side by side stiffly with your family PLEASE I am not the lady for you. If you want me to create and capture moments that show true connection and love then please, let ME be the one to do that. I know our time together will be unforgettable, and you will be left with a new best friend + a huge gallery of gorgeous images that you get to hang all over your home!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
