Being behind the camera is my happy place.
As you can see in this family photo, my own kids and husband don’t love being in front of the camera. And, that is why this is my all time favorite.
My family does let me photograph them candidly during daily life or events. They inspire me to keep my documentary style strong, like a muscle I want to use more often.
:::Now for the traditional background details:::
Born and raised in West Seattle, I grew up appreciating the great outdoors and local art galleries. Both influence my photography.
I left West Seattle for college where I learned photography in a photojournalism course using film. A documentary style has been with me ever since. After working as a Wedding Photographer’s Assistant, I began photographing weddings myself in Port Angeles, Washington and then in Seattle.
My focus shifted once we started a family, and while I took a break from Wedding and Event Photography, my camera was never idle. Digital photography entered my life. I started finding beauty in every day life, and began capturing Fine Art Photography.
