is a word to describe my work. I put my heart into everything I do so that my customers - human and animal - have what they need to thrive. My journey of a wholesome life started with my animals and, in my adventures, has moved towards helping my own body, and now you and your own animals.
Wholesome starts from within. It is a choice. If you're looking for someone to coach you into health, I'm not your person. I'm also not here to judge your lifestyle and life-choices. Your choices are yours alone, but even a little wholesome is better than none at all.
I was diagnosed with Dysautonomia in 2009 after being symptomatic much of the life I can remember. After my primary care doctor wanted to prescribe several different medications that contradicted each other (stimulants along with relaxants - which the pharmacist even questioned), I decided to take matters into my own hands and try a more holistic approach to my health.
I am down to taking only one pharmaceutical medication and living an active and fulfilling life. With the birth of my daughter in 2022 and her sensitive skin, it lead me to explore medicinal herbal options to treat her eczema.
I struggled with body image for much of my young adulthood, and I know what it's like to look at yourself in a photo and not feel yourself. Wholesome Photography is the last step of healing from the inside out. I strive to always make sure you feel like your best self on the day of your shoot and into your final images so you can see your own wholesomeness in body, mind, and spirit.
