Hi I'm Natalie. I'm a portrait and fine art photographer based in Los Angeles, CA.

I love bringing out a woman's natural beauty and revealing her complexity of character.

I want to know what's going on inside a woman's head, not what designer she's wearing.

It is my firm belief that a woman's beauty comes from the content of her character, not the size of her waist.

I'm also a total tomboy and love exploring androgyny in both women and men.

In my fine art work I like playing with concepts. Often those concepts relate to the follies of how women are commonly perceived or portrayed.

Sometimes I simply enjoy the exploration of the surreal. I believe, like Susan Sontag, that photography is an inherently surreal art form.

Whether I'm lost in philosophical contemplation or just making pretty pictures, I try not to take myself too seriously.

I have a newsletter where I mostly wax philosophical about everything from movies to art to keeping your head screwed on straight while attempting to somehow relate it all back to photography.

If this sounds like fun to you, join me! Sign up for my newsletter here. :)
