Why Being FLY Matters

“It’s absolutely the very best, most incredibly valuable, beautiful work

to show a woman her beauty.”

I started FLY right after a huge, horrible breakup. Its true. I sort of wish it weren’t, but in all honesty I needed a project, a way to better myself and to find my way into seeing my own value. I needed to feel unique again, and beautiful again, and I just flat out had something to prove. That breakup forced me to pursue my dreams.

I taught high school photography for a total of 10 years and started shooting four years in. Timing is everything and only a few months after that breakup, I started having several Seniors I knew, ask me to do some photography for their graduations. I had no knowledge whatsoever that Senior portraits were a “thing”. I thought I was alone. That was back in 2010, when I was still romanced by the idea of shooting weddings.

Shortly after starting FLY, still with the mission of being a wedding photographer, I got connected with Dane Sanders and Better Together, a network of the best in the photo business, which is where I quickly learned that Senior photography is its own wonderfully complex and beautiful genre of photography. I fell in love and started hustling to figure it all out. How could I create incredible, beautiful, meaningful photographs of my clients, whilst also building them up and taking their breath away? I could teach them to FLY, that’s how.

FLY has given me the ability to provide my clients with an experience that engages photography and helps my clients star in their own story. Sometimes the story is fanciful and idyllic, sometimes it’s natural and free, sometimes it’s gritty and edgy; always, it’s beautiful and confidence building. FLY stands for Free the Lovely You, and that’s what I help my clients do. It’s absolutely the very best, most incredibly valuable, beautiful work to show a woman her beauty.

No matter who you are, what size you wear, what flaw you fear you have, you are insanely beautiful and you have so much to offer this world. Guess what? My job lets me show you I’m right about that. Let’s FLY.
