photographic artist and creator


Artistically, I love the contrast of beautiful subjects in dark backgrounds which produce rich black and white portraits. It exemplifies beauty in vogue through simplicity. 

You'll find that I am drawn to editorial posing. But I will have you laughing during your session. 

I am an ambivert so I like quiet, but love being around people. I am a true artist, yet so analytical. All of these characteristics contribute to the nuances that define my Sanguine brand.

Phenomenal Woman

Sanguine Portraiture

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.

I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
