This session was so much fun! For little F's first birthday, we decided to do an outdoor watermelon smash in Eatonville, WA instead of cake because watermelon is one of her favorite foods. I love that we were able to make this session something that she would enjoy. I...

Where did summer go? I wish I knew, I hope you had an amazing summer. I know we still have Back to School, Halloween and Thanksgiving around the corner, but it is also time to start thinking about those Christmas card pictures. 

This year, we are making Christmas card...

One of the things I love most about photography is getting to see the children of my client's grow when we do sessions every year. This family is no exception. We did a family portrait session at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA and it is so much fun to see the kids (...

This lovely home in Dash Point (Near Federal Way, WA)  spent just 12 days on the market before they accepted an offer!  Professional photographs and staging really do make the difference when you are selling a home, and choosing an agent that offers these services sets...

There are many downsides to close family moving across the US, but there is an upside. The upside is the new adventures we get to have when we visit places we otherwise probably wouldn't have visited. Houston was hot, and humid, and flat, but it was so pretty in a way...

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season! It was a busy one for us, but definitely wonderful. We loved hosting family and friends, but the hustle and bustle means I am behind in blogging.

About a year ago I got a text/phone call I had been waiting on that my friend was headed to the birth center to have her second son. I was so excited for her! Over the past year, I had the opportunity to capture this little guy come into the world, his newborn pictures...

I know, not a very unique title, but applicable. I had a great time photographing these five horses in Enumclaw, WA. I love the natural beauty of the setting along with the beauty of the horses.

About Me

I  bought my first camera at the age of thirteen and haven't put it down since.


I enjoyed photography courses during high school and I am always working to refine my skills with ongoing education courses. I have always enjoyed photographing the amazing beauty of Washington State, as well as family events.

My composition style is varied and artistic, I notice small details, I am also comfortable posing large groups. 

The opportunity to turn a hobby I loved into a career has been a dream come true. I believe there is nothing more beautiful than capturing family milestones, whether it be the love a newly married couple shares or the love a family shares as they welcome a new baby into their lives.

When not capturing memories and important events for other people, my attention is turned to capturing my favorite subject, my young daughter.
