About

My family is my world and will always come first above all else. I’m married to a super awesome artist/musician/all-around spectacularly world rocking dude. We met when we were 14 and have been inseparable ever since (that’s right, high school sweethearts). That incredible fella gave me the two brightest lights in my world -- our sons Maximilian and Oliver.

I was given my first camera sometime in the early 90’s (whoa, so like 20+ years ago?!), and shortly after that I learned the fundamentals on my dad’s old 1970’s Nikkormat (which I still love to shoot with today!). I love shooting a variety of subject matter, but my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in interpersonal and family communication, so human interaction and relationships have always been an area of interest for me.

My family is my world and will always come first above all else. I’m married to a super awesome artist/musician/all-around spectacularly world rocking dude.

That incredible fella gave me the two brightest lights in my world -- our sons Maximilian and Oliver.

I love shooting a variety of subject matter, but my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in interpersonal and family communication, so human interaction and relationships have always been an area of interest for me. Photographing real life and the world around me soothes my soul.

Other things that make my world go round are vinyasa yoga, traveling (some favorite places being Yosemite, Whitefish, Seattle, pretty much the entire California Pacific Coast, and Hawaii), playing Mario Kart & Golden Eye, craft beer, farmers markets, handmade things, antiquing, learning how to garden, and supporting small and local businesses.

I lovvve music. My favorite types are ska and punk rock, but I definitely have a wide variety in my music library. The hubs and I love live music and have seen more bands together than I can count. Some of my favorite musicians include Saves the Day, Millencolin, Anthony Raneri, The Ataris, No Doubt, P!nk, Face to Face, Motion City Soundtrack, Buck-0-Nine, The Cure, Less Than Jake, Weezer, The Offspring, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, John Mayer, Queen, and Jimmy Eat World.

I shoot, edit, and create with a Nikon and a Mac. I do mostly digital shooting, but film will always hold a special place in my heart and will occasionally make an appearance in my work. Traditional media also completely fascinates and inspires me, and I love drawing with my boys on the giant chalkboard wall in our house.

Life is, well, crazy and unpredictable. So we soak in every second of beauty that life affords us because there’s no telling what’s around the next corner. Thanks for stopping by to see what I’m all about.
