As a professional dating photographer, I love creating happy, natural looking profile photos that bring out your inner light.

Love Your Photos


Everyone has a story to tell.
Welcome to mine.

I believe that the right photo can tell the world your story, and I’m passionate about making it a great one. With a long career as a graphic designer and art director for Fortune 500 companies including Gap, Pottery Barn, and Charles Schwab, along with a long history as a nationally exhibiting fine artist, I bring all my creative experience to my photography clients. The artist and designer in me will bring out your unique personality, while as a photographer I will capture it for the world to see.

YES! there are a LOT of lame dating photos floating around – blurry, outdated, lost in a crowd, face in a shadow, body cropped out, etc. No wonder people complain about how hard it is to date.

That’s what gave me the idea to do portrait photography for daters. I thought, “Hey! Let’s start with photos that are current, in focus, with you looking happy, flirtatious, or funny…”

90% of matches are based on your profile photo alone.

I want to give women and men their best shot at finding love. (No pun intended.) I’m about showing the real you, in your element, doing what you love, and looking confident. This will get you more positive attention online and create an authentic connection.

If you are inspired to show the world your best self in your dating profile photos, with natural-looking photos, contact me and I’ll show you how you can have great profile photos that you can use also use for your LinkedIn headshot, Instagram posts, Facebook, and other social media spots.

Along with helping people find love with dating photos, I am a Certified Love & Dating Coach, CPCC and Master Certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming Professional, MNLP.

I work with people who are single and want to stop the cycle of heartbreaking dating patterns to find lasting love. The path to love starts with uncovering our unhealthy dating beliefs, attitudes, and patterns. 

Love and relationships can be hard. People have heartbreaks that they carry around for decades after a divorce, an unexpected ending or breakup. If you are holding onto pain and can’t let it go, and it’s preventing you from moving forward with your life, I can help!

You may want to bring love into your life, yet feel drowned with all kinds of negativity and frustration and don’t know how to release emotional baggage from past relationships.

In the coaching process, you will gain clarity about your love style and the love styles of your ideal relationship and partner. This is a very powerful process as you become crystal clear about who to connect with and who to avoid including learning red flags. The goal is to stop wasting time with people who will not meet your needs. Make the dating process simple, fun and successful.

When I’m not taking photos or making art, I’m doing other things I love:  Music, dancing, exploring urban culture, practicing Qi Gong and reading all about love, abundance, freedom and joy.
