I have been a photographer since 2008, learning the tricks of the trade in a self-taught kind of way (I took one class though!), and have learned so much and basically have grown so much because of photography. For me it comes down to documenting a moment in your life that is precious to you: whether it is a photo of where you and your family is at this point in time, yourself as a young adult set out to enter the world after high school, or on the happiest day of your life at your wedding. I present these moments in a beautiful and creative way that you will have forever to look back on. And I LOVE being able to bless you like that!

I go to Portland I get Chick-Fil-A, unless it's a Sunday (sad face).

There is so much I love about photography, but what I enjoy the most is getting to work with people, both new and returning clients. I absolutely love to make people laugh and create candid moments for photos, it's seriously one of my favorite things (I think I've mentioned that like 20 times throughout this website). I've got an arsenal of ideas and prompts to make the experience fun and easy, and you will see me joking and laughing with my clients throughout my photo shoot sessions. This aspect, combined with the beauty of light and color, is why I do this. And then there are the sweet moments! Ah! There is nothing more beautiful than a shared secret smile or loving glance, and I think it's the coolest thing in the world that get to be the one to capture it!!
