I have been passionate about photography since I was a teenager. Born and raised in San Diego, California, I studied photography at Junior College. Having an adventurous and curious nature, I left my hometown at the age of 19. Working at ski resorts in Utah, Colorado and California for a free lift pass; I was the designated photographer. Leading the way down double black diamond runs, out of bounds or hiking up steep faces…all with a heavy pack on my back (Canon AE-1 and Sony Camcorder) to set up for a quick video or photo sequence…often sacrificing the ability to ride unencumbered. This determination to capture special photographs is still with me today.
I met my late husband in Lake Tahoe and we soon moved to Colorado to start a family. Twelve years later we moved to Washington State with our two children. Eleven years have since passed and I am finally turning my passion into a career, thanks to the love and support of my beautiful children who are also my muses.
My goal as a photographer is to create images that allow the viewer to feel something. Joy, awe, freedom, sorrow, melancholy, desire, hunger… These are the images that make a lasting impression. As your photographer, I’d like to get to know you a bit before we take the first photograph. This ensures a comfortable working relationship and photographs that represent the best of you and/or your business. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit my website!
