Let's see what BLOOMS



*Session Dates/Times are subject to mother nature and when local plants/flowers bloom.

*Multiple Dates will be available for each location, with rain dates in case of weather.


BLOOM Portraits have developed at the intersection of a few passions in my life – Photography + Nature + Living your Dreams + Travel + Portraiture. Last year was a time of healing for me where I planted seeds deep in the earth, protected them from the elements, watered them and now is the time to watch them BLOOM.

I saw a great metaphor here and wondered how I could inspire or support others who might be BLOOMING into a new season of their life and living their dreams. It’s a way to celebrate your journey to this point and capture an exciting time in your life whether it’s a new job, starting a family, graduating from school, starting a new business or embarking on a new adventure!

I’ve always been inspired by fresh, blooming trees and flowers and thought how amazing it would be to photograph people among the new, fresh blooms. The idea is also that flowers bloom throughout many seasons in different parts of the world – from the dogwood trees of the south, to the tulip fields of Holland, to the lavender fields of Provence to the sunflower fields of Tuscany. Therefore, BLOOM Sessions will take place all year in multiple destinations across the world!

Being that mother nature is in charge though, also means that this project will be a bit of a “journey” in itself. We will be limited to the schedule that mother nature sets forth, as well as weather conditions that may literally rain on our BLOOMING parade. But that’s the fun part about a journey, you never know where it might lead!

So, I’ll be releasing dates throughout the year on a very spontaneous basis and the best way to know when/where these sessions are happening is to sign up below to be notified once new dates & locations are released.
