I'm a photographer, journalist and mother who specializes in documentary storytelling. In the past I've focused on news, conflict and street imagery. Of late I've been taking self portraits and holding photography sessions for families and individuals. My specialty is working with clients to envision the style and mood for their shoot, advising on clothing, props and posing, and working to achieve the right tone and mood in edit.
Since COVID-19 became a global pandemic I've been taking photos of families while masked and using lenses that allow for safe social distancing. I am still available for shoots or events that allow for COVID-safe conditions and social distancing (portraits, birthdays, engagements, weddings). Contact me about the varying packages I have available for all interest levels.
I am also a frequent traveler and I blog about my travels here. Most days I am taking care of my daughter while also working fulltime overseeing award-winning documentary shows for Al Jazeera's online channel, AJ+. You can find out more about my work as an Executive Producer on my LinkedIn.
In 2012 I co-founded a nonprofit youth zine, Seventh Native American Generation (SNAG), that trains Indigenous youth in media. Since then I've also held media workshops and trainings for groups, organizations and companies and spoken as a media expert at events around the world.
