This is my passion

You can expect a session specific to your vision that starts with a complimentary consultation, packages that include digital images, and the ability to obtain professional prints and products along with everything in between.

I love to be a part of the family lifecycle: from engagement, pregnancy, and baby arrival, to children and family portraits, all the way through high school graduations! It’s so fun to watch families grow and evolve and I feel privileged to document these life events. This is my passion, your kids, your story, your milestones!

In the spring you can find me elbow deep in the garden or cuddled up editing your sessions in my fuzzy socks during snowfall. I love everything outdoors, yoga, coffee, sports, animals and comfort food. I adore living in the Pacific Northwest, so a lot of my work will cater to outdoor and minimalist settings.

Non-Posed Approach

 I focus on a “non-posed approach which caters to the true you. I believe that everyone should have access to photography and my goal is to provide you with an affordable and customized full-service experience from inquiry to delivery.

Freezing some of your favorite moments in time and then finding a way for you to display them in your home is what the process is all about and I aim to make that as seamless as possible!
