For more than a decade I've been photographing people in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. I'm often asked "what kind of photography do you do?" I always say; I do photography with people in it. I'm curious by nature, so I love to meet new people and help them create beautiful portraits of all kinds.  I love the connection that I make with clients, I love the excitement of a new project. I believe that my job is to encourage you to feel and look your best and then capture it in an image. I'm like your own personal photo cheerleader. Without the pom-poms.

I've been developing this website with my new name for the past year and one of my big dilemmas was what to put on the front page - High school seniors? Families? Head shots and business branding? Where do I place my fantasy work? They are all part of what I do, and equal parts of what inspire me. I believe that a little bit of what I do in each category helps me with the others. Years of family photography helps me pose groups of business people in relaxed, yet professional ways. I learned to translate the fashion and posing from my senior and lifestyle work into really compelling images that help people move beyond a head and shoulders passport photo into something that shows who they are. My experience with lifestyle and fashion shoots helps me photograph teenagers who want edgy magazine looking senior photos and keeps me tapped into the pulse of popular culture and style.  My fantasy work keeps me inspired, pushes my portraits outside the expected and into my clients world of dreams and magic. When I look at my work as a whole I think the thing I do best is create portraits that are beautiful, inspiring and allow my subjects to feel something when they look at them.

Makeup and hair artist, Kandie Smith

Kandie and I have been working together for the last 8 years. She is a master at creating stunning makeup and hair looks for my boudoir and senior clients. Her favorite thing to do is a dramatic look that transforms our clients looks. Beyond that is her vivacious personality and humor - it's just as important as her makeup skills. She makes everyone laugh and relax and that is a vital part of doing what I do, so her presence is priceless to me.
