When I was 10-years-old my main subjects were my dog Mandy and cat Sarah and I used a purple Kodak 110 camera. I preferred still life and landscapes to portraits. I was shy and introverted. (I’m still a little awkward and make weird jokes when I don’t know what else to say!)
When I turned 22, I packed my two-door red BMW and drove to Walt Disney World where I started working as a Photo Pass photographer. Disney helped me develop a way to capture the magical moments between loved ones and the connection of families. I was able to tell help tell their vacation stories using my camera. That experience brought out my love of photographing people.
After about two years, I had a calling to come home to Washington. I picked up some weddings as a second photographer. Since then, I’ve had several images published in newspapers and magazines and one of my photos is on the cover of a book by Lizzy Goodman.
A little more about me:
❤ I’m married to my best friend Joey, we have two amazing daughters, Scout and Fay, and a dog named Murphy.
❤ I LOVE LOVE LOVE finding new music. Especially local, PNW music. When I was living in Florida I missed the alternative radio stations. I lend my urge to move back to Washington to Death Cab for Cutie.
❤ My go-to coffee drink is a SF vanilla cold brew and oatmilk.
❤ I’ve driven across America three times without kids. I am looking forward to taking my girls out on the highway to show them how big, beautiful and diverse this country really is.
❤ Avocado + tomato + mayo + a little salt and pepper = BEST. SANDWICH. EVER.
❤ I do not accept or endorse any type of racism, sexism, religious discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, or any other form of discrimination. I also consider myself body positive! My business and home are safe places and I will love and accept you as long as your ideals do not discriminate against others.
