I'm August.

I believe freedom & solace dwells in creativity & art-

I am a lover of music (live & otherwise) an awkward introvert, a hopeful romantic, an obsessive, a night owl, an optimistic pessimist, an uber left-leaning autodidact & an aspiring friend & advocate to/for the life-ravaged, the victimized, the strange, & the weird. I kneel at the altar of the patron saint of outcasts. 

I strive to capture the shadow moments -the inbetween. Humans, with all of their flaws and shortcomings fascinate me, & I strive to channel that fascination & curiosity into photographs that you can use to reference who you were & inspire you to become who you hoped to be.

I give a fuck. This can lead to ridiculously high expectations when it comes to the human condition. Needless to say I am perpetually disappointed :) That said- I have found that I can create my own utopia- at least in regards to the realm of photography.

I'm a vicarious collector & preserver of experiences because I never amassed enough of my own. Your captured image nourishes me- it is my photosynthesis. I'm honored to be part of the procreative process. 

I truly understand the camera shy ;)

I truly understand the camera shy ;)

Each session adds to my growth and development, upcycling me from what I used to be. I'm a woman who has consistently loved taking photographs of the people and spaces she encountered since her teens. Currently, a photographer seeking unconventional spirits and fellow rebellious hearts to create with.

I'm not a gig-photographer.  I'm not a robot with a camera, & I prefer clients who appreciate intentional photography or at the absolute least- respect my own personal shooting style/edit, as I cannot shoot any other way. 

Apparently, I can also be quite long-winded.

If any of the above turns you off or makes you think twice- go with that. I'm not for you. If the above resonates with you &/or reminds you of someone you love- please reach out. I'd love to connect.

Warmest regards.
