PHOTO

My specialty lies in connecting business goals with beautiful creative. I excel at working cross functionally with various teams to identify opportunities, organize, and ideate. Particularly adept in the planning aspect of photo, I'm a wiz at managing budgets, creating briefs, and ensuring that all creative ladders up to the overall brand aesthetic and guidelines. I'm scrappy enough to pitch in when short staffed and knowledgable in all aspects, but smart enough to leave that to the experts. 

ON-FIGURE PHOTOGRAPHY

My experience with on-figure photography ranges from on-set creative direction to planning and casting. During my time at Rafaella, I was tasked with cutting our photography budget. By utilizing an in-studio location, talented models, and minimal prop styling, we were able to exceed our original shot list as well as deliver photos at a 61% cost decrease to seasons prior.
