You might be surprised to to learn my favorite thing about being a photographer isn’t photography: it’s telling stories.

 
 

Don’t get me wrong, I love photography. Originally a graphic designer, I found my way into photography when I realized I could use a passion for art and design to showcase real people and their real stories.

I have always been moved by authenticity. In 2017, my husband and I decided our daily life had become about going through the motions, rather than purposefully choosing to be true to the things we wanted. So we sold our stuff, packed ourselves and our husky, Skye, into a converted E250 Ford van, and spent the next ten months exploring the U.S.

But here’s the thing about real stories, you guys. Around ten months, our van broke down for good. And yes, we eventually returned to our daily lives.

This is the unsexy part of storytelling. But that’s what I intend to hold for you when you step in front of my lens: all that beauty mixed with mess.

So when the rain flattens your hair on your wedding day and you don’t even notice through your joy, when there’s mud on your hem, when your husband is ugly crying, or when you’re caught not smiling but rather breathing in the immensity of the moment, just as I’ll be there to show how the sun caught your hair, your grandmother’s beautiful wrinkles, or that breathtaking first kiss.

Because I want to help you tell the whole story.

I currently live in Spokane, WA, with my baker husband and our forthcoming baby boy, Jude. I would love to grab coffee, pastries, or beer (or all three at the same time - I don’t judge) to learn how we can tell your story.
