Natalie leverages her curiosity and sense of adventure to elevate a brand’s story and to bring people to life in front of her camera. Combining her OCD-ish attention to detail with a some chill and humor, she brings a positive can-do attitude to set.
Her team adapts to fit the job, from lean travel crews to full scale productions and can capture both stills and motion.
Natalie splits her time between the quiet of California's Mojave Desert and the bustle of LA. If she isn't shooting, she'll be working remotely from her hilltop cabin with her little dog and the neighborhood coyotes.

"I worked with Natalie on a fairly large photo shoot out of Nashville, TN and she was our director/photographer. There was a lot to juggle between multiple locations, talent, crew and lighting. Natalie was the most buttoned-up director that I have ever worked with, and it felt like I had another producer on the job. She's organized and highly attentive to details. The clients loved her because of her leadership and personality. The talent loved her because she has a way to make everyone feel heard and appreciated in a kind, considerate way. She has a natural ability to instantly make you feel comfortable, which is so important to lifestyle print. The content that we created together exceeded the clients expectations. I'd be honored to work with Natalie anytime in the future."
-- Michelle Abnet, Producer, Nashville, TN
