Surreal Lifestyle Magazine

What a great surprise to wake up to notifications that my shoot with Karina Sayler not only is featured in Surreal Lifestyle Magazine, but also on the cover! This is no small task and when we shared these images with the magazine, they immediately jumped at the opportunity to publish the shoot. And there’s a great interview with Karina as well, where she shares her interests in acting and dancing along with her foray into modeling. I could not be more proud of the entire team that came together to make this one of my favorite shoots this year.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
