Wears black 24/7
I’m so glad you're here! I'm an outgoing introvert who loves sassy sarcasm and my husband, Mr. B. You'll typically find me obsessing over my art supplies, organizing yet one more thing in my house, and teaching other photographers how to stand out from the crowd with their marketing!
I believe no one should ever have to wake before the sun, you can never wear too much black, and Fancy Grilled Cheese Fridays should be a world-wide practice.
If you’re looking for a photographer that loves the bold, artistic, and alternative, you found her and I’m so stoked to meet you!!!
For a long time, I was a dental hygienist. And I was miserable.
I dabbled in art and photography at a young age, but when it came time for a career, I went for what was safe instead of what I was passionate about. So, you can imagine how that turned out.
I began creating and selling my artwork. I built an art business and even taught business and marketing to artists, but my unhappiness in my day job took a huge toll on me and a massive creative block squashed my dreams of leaving dentistry with art.
I started to seriously consider returning to my past love of photography when I struggled to find the right photographer for my own elopement in a castle off the coast of Florida. The photographers I found were super traditional, didn't get my vibe, and they definitely didn't get my aesthetic. While alternative photography was super popular in the UK, the new tradition of non-tradition just hadn’t hit the states yet.
Despite the challenges going into 2020, I launched Rock Your Rebellion Photography - a business and brand that celebrates those who stand out, those brave enough to be true to themselves, and those that don't buy the idea that they must do what everyone else is doing for it to be right.
I now have the privilege of my own creative career and thanks to my past as an artist and business educator, I also help photographers with business and marketing skills. Thank you for being here and for being part of my story!

A super talented DJ, graphic designer, and business owner who's almost as funny as me. He thinks he's funnier. Fun fact: Mr. B made the RYR logo!
I've been collecting crystals, rocks and geodes since I was two. Amethysts are my favorite!
There's nothing more comforting than grilled cheese! Brie and berry on sourdough is my favorite!
I guess this makes sense since I married a DJ! Siouxsie and the Banshees is my favorite band!
I'm not a TV person, but there are 5 shows I could never tire of: The Office, Parks and Rec, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, Twin Peaks, and The Golden Girls. They rule. Fight me.
I love things neat and clean. Being organized keeps my life in order. If I told you I alphabetize my spices, it wouldn't be a lie.
I love creating it and collecting it. I make mixed media pop surrealist paintings that look like they jumped out of a fairytale and my work has been collected internationally!
I like making things pretty. I love eclecticism and my favorite color combo is black, purple, and teal!
DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS
Does this make me a boho goth? I can't live without these! Even Mr. B has taken up diffusing his own mixes. That's because he's rad.
Modern horror keeps me awake at night, but give me some vintage monster movies, and I'm seriously down. Spooky over scary any day.
I have about 30. My oldest one has been in the family over 30 years. I love that living in Florida allows me these beauties!
I love getting away, even if it's just for a few days. I love that I live in a state where a tropical paradise is just a short drive away!
