my story

Many letters, emails, and a long-distance relationship later, I followed my heart to a secluded beach on Hawaii, where I married my spunky and slightly eccentric pen pal. We were young (19), but sure of ourselves and our love. 

Together we made it through college, grew as people–always sustained and inspired by another, built a good life, and have been on many adventures.

I didn't know it then, but the most life-changing day of my life was when I received a letter in the mail with a boy's name and address: my future pen pal and husband. Steven lived in Los Angeles. I in Berlin, Germany. We were both 15.

I live on the beautiful island of Maui and travel to Lanai, Oahu, and the other surrounding islands for shoots and events. I take on a select number of destination assignments worldwide per year.

Apart from English, I fluently speak German and am conversational in Spanish. I often work successfully with ladies, gentlemen, and families who command little to none of those languages: here, we “speak” simply through calm nonverbal gestures and expressions. Often those sessions are especially memorable and endearing.
