I’m a NYC-based environmental portrait photographer passionate about artisans, designers, food and travel. 

My images are stylish, classic yet modern and tell a story.  

With years in luxury fashion photography combined with a marketing background, I bring quick thinking, problem solving and a discerning eye to fast-paced, team environments.

Originally from Nashville, I studied psychology and art at Northwestern University, danced to a lot of Chicago house and ate too much deep-dish pizza. 

Chicago was a bit too cold for a Southern girl so I moved to New York City and began working with photographers such as Craig McDean, Brigitte Lacombe, Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi, then four years with David Sims.

Then I moved to India for two years and shot everyone from tribal groups to socialites and Bollywood stars, discovered a love for South Indian food and traveled extensively throughout the country.

 I'm also a Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting grantee; check out my reportage photography at baunfoto.com.

When not shooting, you can find me co-producing Open Show NYC, chilling with my husband and two dogs or baking the most Uh-Mazing chocolate chip cookies.
