I believe our world is full of life, joy and color and I want your photographs to express that. I aim for your photos to be an elevated version of real life. Natural and timeless, yet bold and vibrant. I'm truly flattered when people tell me they like their photos, but I'm filled with purpose when they tell me I helped them feel comfortable, confident and beautiful during our session! That will always be what matters to me the most!
and that's why you won't see much
about photography on this page! ;)
Being able to capture the special people, moments and times in the lives of others is an honor. It's something that I not only enjoy doing, but actually get joy from doing. I don't take it for granted that I have the opportunity to do something I truly love for a living! But...
let's be real... this isn't what I look like when i'm taking photos. my dress code is a hair bun and yoga pants.
I love having a career that allows me to express my creativity and meet new people! More importantly, as a family and portrait photographer, I have the opportunity to give you an experience that will leave you lighter than when I found you. Knowing this time in your life and your memories are preserved will give you a sense of peace you didn't know you were missing.
I don't want you to only walk away with photos you love, I want you to have an experience that makes you feel comfortable and taken care of. I make the entire process as simple, joy-filled and stress free as possible. Photo shoots aren't meant to be a source of stress and obligation, they're meant to be enjoyed and to leave you with lasting memories. That's exactly what you'll get with me!

... and exploring new places fuels my passion for life, people and photography! The Pacific Northwest is my favorite place I’ve visited, but there are countless places I still want to see!
It's my faith that gets me through the most difficult of days and my inspiration for celebrating life during my best days!
... bring me so much joy! I was a nanny before I ever thought about doing photography. Children are often forgiving, encouraging and full of hope And I strive to be more like them.
Specifically Starbucks. I actually love Starbucks more than I love coffee. I think I like the idea of coffee more than the actual coffee, but I drink it anyway. ;)
... completely captivates me! Sunsets leave me in awe, I could stare at the clouds all day and I often use an app that shows me what all the stars are named!
... as my main entertainment source because you can do other things while watching TV. My favorite shows? Friends, The Office and Boy Meets World. I could watch them on repeat... and I do.
