Hi, I’m Natalie! I’m a fifth-generation Californian, born and raised in the Bay Area. My love for photography began in high school and has grown into a fiery passion ever since. I graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Environmental Planning so I can have the expertise to protect wilderness and wildlife-- another passion of mine, as well as a family legacy. Humboldt is also where I discovered hoopdance and became involved with the hoop community, which I also love to photograph. I thrive in social settings and love attending festivals and networking events, however I also enjoy my solitude on annual backpack trips into the Sierras and in yoga classes. I currently live in the Silicon Valley with my fiancé Dan and cat Stryder. 

After experiencing hardships over a series of miserable jobs, I know that there is no better feeling than creating a life based on fulfilling your passion and purpose. My mission is to use my photography to help brands and women entrepreneurs establish credibility, attract clients, and increase revenue. I use my photography to help you manifest the career and life of your dreams. 

With over ten years of experience developing my own unique lighting, directing, and editing style, I can help you tell the story of your brand “painted” in the best light. After all the hard work you put into your business, don’t skip out on the element of showing it to the world!
