Who I am...
I am a lifestyle portrait photographer in the south Puget Sound area around Olympia, Washington.
My first experience with photography was as a teenager with a simple point and shoot camera. Since then my skills and love of photography have grown. My favorite part is the way it captures the emotions of a memory. I take joy in giving people a tangible reminder of a moment in their life.
I started shooting professionally in 2008 then ended up taking some time off to raise my two children. I’m not sure if it was fortunate or unfortunate for them that they were the sole outlet for my photographic creativity for so many years! With thousands of photos of them saved for all eternity, there came a point for me to expand my creativity back out past the walls of our home and start capturing memories for other families again.
When I’m not behind the lens of my camera you can find me riding my off the track thoroughbred or in my kitchen trying a new recipe.
