Believe it or not, I didn’t always imagine myself as a photographer. My photography journey started out after I turned 18 and moved out of moms house. Growing up, we did all of the road trips and outdoorsy, camping stuff, but we didn’t have a ton of money, or family far enough, to really travel outside of Washington. I always had this idea in my head that I wanted to travel to places farther than just a drive; somewhere a plane ride away.  

So I made a goal: save up enough money and start investing in experiences and adventures. 
Being young and just out of high school, I knew one day my memory of the places I traveled to would fade, but I wanted to be able to look back on my traveling days and be reminded of my adventures. Thus led to the purchase of my first dslr camera, a canon 70d. 

My 70d went with me EVERYWHERE: Hawaii, Vegas, Europe. 
After a while, I discovered that, although I enjoyed capturing these BEAUTIFUL places I was traveling to, what I liked even MORE was taking pictures of the people I was with. I would go through my camera roll at the end of a trip and have this big, dorky smile on my face when I got to see my friends and family posing, being there authentic selves and just having a good time. (Spoiler, I still have this dorky smile whenever I go through your guys’ photos. Just me. Home alone. Smiling at my computer screen. In a dark room. Not in a creepy way…)

Fast-forward to today, I now have a passion for serving others by capturing their precious moments. My goal is to take images that make you feel something. I want to transport you back in time and give you back those feelings and emotion that accompanied your memories. 

I’m always learning and growing so if you are here, thank you. Thank you for checking out my page. If you are someone who enjoys a laid back, goofy presence, then I’m your gal. Send me a message and let’s see if we are a good fit.
