I found my start in photography during my high school years. Often, I could be found working or assisting in the darkroom. I appreciated the outlet that photography offered me. I would often turn to that outlet well into adulthood. After moving to Washington, I decided to take action to turn my photography dream into a viable career.
My goal is to make my clients look and, more importantly, feel amazing. I love being able to inspire that feeling.My favorite types of shoots are glamor, boudoir, family, maternity, couples, and children. Basically, anything fueled by love; love for others or for one's self.Product shoots allow for me to truly take my time and devote myself to each detail. It is an almost zen like activity for me.
I am in love with Marymoor Park. I have a few other locations spread about King County but Marymoor tends to have a wide variety of location options. I also have a home studio.See Portfolio & Book
When I was very young I became fascinated with my grandfather's slideshows of his many fishing trips in Alaska. I loved how meticulous he was with his prized cameras. Besides my grandfather teaching me about light, color, exposure and composition, he also taught me the value of photography. That it was far more than a means to capture memories. It was a way to create a connection and evoke emotion among people.
I don’t think there is a particular “type” of shoot that I do or do not enjoy working on. I love any shoot where I can play with and explore the shadows, light and color that is in front of my camera. And of course doing so in a manner that creates the image I or my clients are looking for. I also really enjoy those shoots where I have the freedom to capture the essence of the story the image is trying to tell.
I like seeking out those spots in and around Seattle and throughout the Pacific Northwest that have not been over-photographed, which is no easy task! Especially if it is a location that speaks to the history of the area like an old factory, a vintage sign, or hand set brick road.See Portfolio & Book
