Thanks for visiting. I am a photographer and digital storyteller based near Silverton, Oregon.
I travel around the Pacific Northwest to document love and life. I make pictures everyday. When I'm not working to document a client's event or family, I document my own. I live with my husband and our three daughters on a small vineyard, where we are learning to appreciate everything Mama Nature has to offer. (Check out the Visual Journal link above.)
Prior to our move to the vineyard (we're Wisconsin-ites at heart), I earned a BFA in photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After working as a newspaper photojournalist in Kansas, Nebraska and Washington and as the Manager of Multimedia at Pacific University, I started photographing weddings and families in 2009.
I look for the quiet, subtle, funny and chaotic (as well as the beauty of course) with the intention of finding artfully composed, authentic moments.
