the photographer behind the camera. I’ve been shooting for a few years now in the travel and landscape realm. But I really love capturing the organic moments with a little edge.
The look of love someone gives their partner, not when you prompt it, but when they hear their loved one laugh. A child’s face light up when they see the candles light up on their birthday cake. The confidence when someone puts on those shoes that make them feel great. The first look at a wedding. All my favorites.
So like, were your parents obsessed with the Little Mermaid?
Nope! They didn't even know the movie existed when they named me, found it in a good ol' baby name book.
Fun Fact: it's a Hebrew name. Mine is the female spelling, "Ariel" is actually the masculine way of spelling it!
How'd you get into photography?
I've always been in the creative realm. I paint, work with clay, do digital illustration work. I needed more content at a previous employer so I decided to buy myself a camera and just do it myself. I very quickly fell in love with nature and landscape photography and have progressed over time with that.
What's your favorite thing to photograph?
Travel and outdoor related photography will probably always be my first love, and I really enjoy product.
But being able to capture the emotion and moments between individuals and families has become so special to me. I prefer to shoot in a documentary style, less posed, more natural and organic.
How do you edit?
Each session is edited individually based on the client and what they would like! I try to stay true to color and natural, while pulling in a decent amount of depth.
A few random facts?
- I hike and camp solo!
- I have a lisp (and I talk fast).
- I'm a cat mom to Bass and Weasley.
