Stories are my love language. Giving voice to the story inside someone is such a beautiful part of my work and one I cherish. When I start on a project like this with a client, it’s very important to me to hear a good bit of their inner workings. As they share, pictures start to come in and out of focus in my head. Each step in the process shapes the final images.

When I embark on a journey with a muse, I totally assign a bit of homework between the booking and our first sit-down inspiration building session (of course, I only call it ‘homework’ to the parents).
