Dreamer.  Artist.  Creative.

“Dear old world’, she murmured, ‘you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” -L.M. Montgomery

I grew up on the waters.  On a farm with acres of wild forests to explore and cool fish ponds to escape the summer heat.  And when not at home, we would spend long sandy hours at the beach or in the endless rivers that seem to run through our Northwest veins.  I have loved and learned from nature, I appreciate its beauty, and an extension of every photograph I make reflects my love for my  child hood home- the streams and forests of rural Oregon.

Speaking of beauty, a huge portion of my heart longs to reveal it.  Working with women comes naturally to me- I have found my purpose in affirming beauty in a natural and poetic way.

When I’m not a photographer, I’m a mama, a wife, an avid reader, a sweet tooth.  I believe that chocolate should be served with every meal, that books are better than television, that family is forever.  I am a lover of words and poetry and history.  I am a redhead living out a grace filled life, leaning into my Savior with each new moment I am gifted.

I love getting to know my clients and consider it a joy to document and celebrate their day.  I believe a wonderful photograph is simply an extension of a comfortable and beautiful client-photographer relationship, and this is my first priority with anyone I am honored to work with.
