I specialize in working one-on-one with couples, families, and small businesses to get to know who they are and what their legacies represent in life, love, and work.

I've always been drawn to the arts. With professional experience working in the architecture world as an interior designer and a photographer of people and places, I'm following the path that best allows me to connect to the world in an upbeat, creative, and encouraging way: through my camera lens.

Since 2010, I have joyfully photographed an eclectic collection of 100+ weddings and have worked as on-screen workshop host at a Seattle-based startup called CreativeLIVE, geeking out over camera gear and interviewing some of the photography world's leading educators.

I continue to be amazed at the places photography has taken me. In 2014 I traveled to India, which inspired me and some friends to co-found a US-based volunteer group called c'mon team!, a collective of 200+ creative professionals from around the world who are dedicated to serving nonprofits that need help telling their stories. Organizing these volunteer events is one of my labors of love.

I enjoy documenting important life moments such as weddings and fun family photos, and also love working directly with small businesses, entrepreneurs, and creative types on headshots, Squarespace websites, and new brand photography.

Giving back is a huge part of my life. When you hire me, a portion of my profit and time goes toward supporting nonprofits, which, I believe, are the antidote to many problems affecting humanity today.
