Growing up, I have always been an introvert. I was that kid that sat on the side lines watching everything around me. I enjoy observing the intricate details of life - the color, the smell, the personality, how people move in it, etc. As I got older, that joy in details grew into an admiration for photography and the ability to tell a story in a single snap shot. So whenever I get a free moment to pick up my camera, I do it! It's been a long time coming, but I am officially done with school (FOREVER, woot woot)! I'm a full time sonographer, working two jobs, trying to balance my career and my love for photography. I spend all day imaging people's insides and during my spare time I like to image people's outside :) Photography is one of my favorite past times, but with only so many hours in a day, it remains my hobby. Thus, I will be available for limited portrait sessions.

That's a little about me... now, tell me about you! I look forward to hearing from you.

Nicole | A View from the Edge

I met Nicole a few years ago while working at Ware Malcomb. We became quickly intertwined when we realized that our significant others are die-hard New York Giants fans. By default, we became die hard fans and have kept in touch since.

Since we've work together, though, there has been a whirl wind of changes, but good changes. What I knew to be my first "real" job became only a distant memory. The firm took quite a beating from he brutal economic downfall. Luckily, Nicole landed on her two feet running. Not only is she a successful interior designer, but she is also creative director of A View From The Edge, an online art gallery, selling provocative photography from daily life in Southeast Asia. Their mission at A View From The Edge is to raise awareness to culturally curious Americans, whilst supporting various charities.

Please visit her website to see exotic photography from another part of the world.

This next picture reminds me a little of New York... New York in Los Angeles.

Thanks for driving up to Hollywood to do the shoot with me. I had a lot of fun and it was really great seeing you even though it was brief! I'm so happy that you're doing well and feel honored to be a part of your cause!


  1. Wow, these are so amazing. I can't wait to meet you!

  2. hi crystal, i really like that third shot of her in the middle of the street. it's striking to see her expression and then compare it to those around her... was that staged or candid?

  3. Awesome work for a great cause! : ) Love the first shot!

  4. Thanks all :)

    Tracy, did you want to meet up on Sunday, 4/11? Lmk

    FiveAlmonds, the third shot was candid. I like how that girl in the background is just staring at her like, "wth." lol
