I’ve been a storyteller all my life. My maternal grandmother passed down family stories to my mother who passed down stories to me and my siblings. Being from a big Romanian family, storytelling is what brought us together. It’s what made us feel connected. Growing up, I used to tell stories to my family and friends through my artwork (i.e., drawings, painting, picture books, etc). I was a romantic and still am. Right now, photography has become my favorite platform for meaning making and storytelling.
My passion for photography began in 2009 during a study abroad trip to Italy. Since then, I’ve been investing time, money and energy into understanding the art and mechanics of photography. Along the way, I became a licensed professional counselor who helps individuals heal through narrative therapy and other treatment modalities.
My goal is to tell your story through photographs in an artistic and memorable way. As you look through my photography, you’ll find families laughing and hugging, whimsical moments, and lovers embracing while basking in the sun. My mission is to provide you with more than just beautiful photographs, but also with an amazing experience where you can feel confident about yourself, have fun and become fully immersed in the moment. If this is something that speaks to you, then I think we are a perfect match! Let’s tell your story, together!
Currently, I am booking weddings, portraits, and lifestyle photography, mostly in the Southwest (Arizona).
