A few years ago, I made a powerful decision that would forever alter the course of my life and how I lived it. In actual fact, the decision made itself the very first time I ever held the fragile infant bundle of my newborn daughter, Riley. In that moment, something in me clicked: I knew then that I would never return to my career as an accountant - a career that had left me feeling bored and unfulfilled. I wanted my daughter to grow up unafraid to dream big dreams and to pursue them with abandon, and I knew that in order for her to enjoy such freedom I would need to first discover it for myself, and lead the way. I began to explore the different avenues of my personal passions. I became inseparable from my camera. I allowed myself to embrace the simple joy of taking one day at a time. There’s an unexpected gravitational force that comes to bear when we’re immersed in what we love. I was (and still am!) filled with creative energy. I took one picture. Then another. Then I took hundreds more. I rekindled a fascination with logo design and graphic art. I drank lots of coffee and, sure - my life got a little messy. But I was happy, and I was inspired! I even built myself a website.

Almost before I knew it, I was taking on clients for everything from wedding photography to branding packages and even custom website designs. And that brings us right up to the present where I am a city-girl-turned-country after moving to the magnificent sweeping landscape of Southwest Washington State where I live in a small town known as the “Oyster Capital of the World.” Truth be told, the adventure continues daily - whether it’s adjusting to my new life as a “ranch wife” on my Husband’s family cattle farm or traversing the uncharted territory of motherhood. I wouldn’t have it any other way. And that brings us full circle back to you, my delightful site visitor. Let’s talk a little bit about that. Going right to the heart of it: I want to support you in your story, in whatever way possible - even if my role is very small. Whether it’s helping you to capture some of the most precious memories of your life or coming alongside you to assist in making your own personal passions a professional reality, I am here for you and know that we were meant to find one another.

Tell us a story of a wedding that you'll never forget

I will never forget my first courthouse wedding in Seattle, Washington. I was still pretty new to weddings at the time but had a curiosity with the whole "elopement" concept. I went in with zero expectations except to do my absolute best to capture some awesome photographs for this couple I'd never met before! Carly (my bride) walked down the street in the most gorgeous white jumpsuit I'd ever seen. She was accompanied by her groom, Austin and their parents. It was just the six of them and it was magical. We had an instant connection and for the first time I looked at weddings a little bit differently. All I'd ever known or experienced were big weddings (even my own). It was a breath of fresh air to see two people commit to forever in front of just their parents. They had other priorities like traveling the world together. While it was a courthouse wedding, it was still incredibly special! The judges, courthouse clerks, and everyone involved made the process feel so unique and custom to the couple. They even got to pick where they said their vows in the building! Carly and Austin chose the rooftop and it was a perfect Seattle evening overlooking downtown. This was a day I will never forget!
