Hello There.

I grew up here on the amazing Whidbey Island, and am so happy to call it my home.  Something about shooting here, with the water, tall trees, rocky shores is simply magical. 

I started taking classes in high school, learning the mechanics of film and the darkroom. Suddenly photography and design took over my life. I no longer shoot film, but my love of the craft is no less! Throughout college, marriage, and having my children, photography has always been my constant. I am lucky to have such an important and enjoyable aspect of my life also be my chosen career. And to turn that joy into something others can appreciate and treasure, I mean, it’s really the dream!

My shooting style just like me. Laid back, personal, and fun. I specialize in lifestyle portraiture, focusing on the connection in relationships. I thrive on the raw emotion during a session, and work hard to produce photographs that really exhibit you and you and your loved one’s true personality and presence. I can’t tell you how many times I hear after a session how amazed my clients are that they see themselves in their images. 

Besides being a photographer, I am also a birth educator and teach classes aiming to empower women and their partners. I am a mom to 3 kiddos, pet mom, and married to a web developer who is my partner in life and nerdery.
