My name is Phoebe and I'm a photography & videography freelancer currently based in St. Louis. I feel most at home when drawing fine art, photographing, or traveling globally with no destination in mind. I'm happy to travel anywhere for projects, but St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, and the Midwest are especially easy for me! My main fortes are portraiture, event photography, and documentary short filmmaking.
How I work
Being photographed or documented is inherently an intimate process. I'm dedicating to getting to know the person or group I am photographing, so clients feel comfortable being themselves on camera and my images reflect their inner essence. My style is continually refining, however, my core values and goals have remained the same: I create work formed of undaunted creativity, authenticity, vulnerability, and connection.
While studying at University of Missouri--Columbia, I was trained in photojournalism and filmmaking techniques as I acquired my Bachelor's in Documentary Journalism. My short "Qualm & Quietus" received the Silver Award from IMDb's Independent Shorts Awards and will officially premiere in 2020 at NYC's First Look Film Fest. I love creating promotional videos as well as short documentaries to viscerally invite viewers into other realities full of story, vision, and heart.
My visual work has appeared in platforms such as the Missouri Botanical Garden's Bulletin & Calendar, the Columbia Missourian Newspaper, and 4th Row Films documentaries and has taken to me from Missouri to New York to Thailand.
I feel honestly thankful to be able to play a part in supporting small businesses, preserving history & heart with families, and collecting personal stories as my life's work.
