I’m very passionate about spending time outdoors; hiking, backpacking, kayaking and enjoying nature. Paired with my focus on empowering women, fitness photography is a natural place for me.

I’m available for both studio fitness photography as well as lifestyle shoots. Outside or in the gym. We will work together to determine the best image solutions for your fitness studio, gym, or training business.

Services available include:

-On brand portraits of all staff and trainers.
-Lifestyle photography of the trainers and the fitness studio.
-Creating visual content for websites, promotions, and social media.
-Monthly or bi-monthly photoshoot packages specifically designed for social media use.


Some of my Bay Area fitness photography clients include:

Lily Fontas - Lily is an Oakland based personal trainer. We worked together to create portraits, lifestyle, and workout images for promotional use. Her images are being used for her website, newsletters, as well as social media.

Core Society Fitness - A woman owned Lagree studio based out of Emeryville. We created a series of images primarily for their social media. Highlighting some of the workouts that are specific to Lagree. And also creating images of the trainers and staff who bring the light hearted and fun girl power vibes to Core Society Fitness.

Bliss Fitness in Oakland. Woman owned, open hearted inclusive fitness studio that is for and by the Oakland community. Bliss fit offers diverse classes and is defined by their fun down to earth vibe. We created images that capture that spirit for their website, promotional materials, and of course for social media as well.
