Hello!

If you've made your way here, you must be after dazzling photos that flawlessly capture something special: a big day, an extraordinary moment, a milestone in your life. I'd love to share my Pacific Northwest-inspired documentary approach to photography with you and create the perfect images you need. 

I'm obsessed with chasing that impeccable light. I'm after those images that so capture the moment that you're swept away with such heart-bursting joy it takes your breath away. (A secret? I love it when my photos make my clients so happy they cry.)  

I don't love being in front of the camera (see the forced cheesy smile here?!), and maybe that's part of what makes me work so hard to stay behind it. I know it can be uncomfortable. I know you want it to come out magic. My clients tell me I put them at ease - I love to laugh through the sometimes awkward first clicks and then settle in with my new friends while we bring out the best in them. 

I'm a curious adventurer, an insatiable world-wanderer, a lover of books, good conversation, and occasionally an excellent mezcal. I live for sweltering tropical sunsets and cool, misty hikes among Douglas firs and trillium flowers. I'm proud to say I'm a 5th generation Oregonian and a Portlander deep down in my heart, but I've been fed and shaped by time living in the human wilds of New York, the semi-arid mountains of Northern Arizona, and some dizzyingly beautiful spots in Latin America. Let's meet, swap stories, and discuss how together we can create the images you've been dreaming of. 

Head over to my Contact page, drop me a line, and I'll be in touch within 24 hours. I can't wait to start making magic together.
