Thanks for visiting. I am a photographer and digital storyteller based near Silverton, Oregon.
I travel around the Pacific Northwest to document love and life. I make pictures everyday. When I'm not working to document a client's event or family, I document my own. I live with my husband and our three daughters at Alexeli Vineyard, where we are learning to appreciate everything Mama Nature has to offer. (Check out the Visual Journal link above.)
Prior to our move to the vineyard (we're Wisconsin-ites at heart), I earned a BFA in photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After working as a newspaper photojournalist in Kansas, Nebraska and Washington and as the Manager of Multimedia at Pacific University, I started photographing weddings and families in 2009.
I look for the quiet, subtle, funny and chaotic (as well as the beauty of course) with the intention of finding artfully composed, authentic moments.
