PHOTOGRAPHERS WITHOUT BORDERS

Hey Shutter Sister!

Wanna Be The Unicorn?

In a world inundated with images and information, it’s a challenge to know where to focus your attention and filter out what’s important and meaningful to you.

It’s my mission to help you by opening up the world of open-hearted, intentional, and slow photography for you. So you get clarity on what truly matters in photography.

I want to empower you to make photos that embody who you are, help you navigate through the abundance of information, and cultivate a sense of wonder for the magic of photography.

Get inspired by love, generosity, and imagination, and learn to photograph life as it FEELS like.

Become an inspiration of slow photography and be the unicorn!
