Consider me your photographic documentarian.
I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in Woodinville, WA and servicing the Greater Seattle area.
I graduated from The Art Institute of Seattle with honors in fine art photography.
I’ve worked in commercial photography participating in advertising campaigns for major companies as well as photographing charity events for Auction of Washington Wines benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital, Alaska Airlines Dinner with Russell Wilson, and In Concert for Cancer with Grammy Award Winner Judith Hill to name a few.
However, my main passion is creating beautiful stylized portraiture that's all about you.
I am an active member of American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), American Photographic Artists (APA National) and in my hometown of Woodinville, I am an active volunteer member for the Woodinville Arts Alliance (WAA) in helping promoting the arts , artists and installation of art.
My Artist Statement
I am drawn back to film photography in this fast paced digital era we live in, simply for its beautiful complexities.
Film is where it began without knowing the results until it is developed and fixed. I am in love with
the textures, the artifacts and the uniqueness from immersing in the alternative processes.
Showcasing people and faces today with the light shining on their soul and telling their story in a beautiful single portrait or
series of portraits bringing back the nostalgia of the 19th century photographer to which I have great respect and appreciation.
My Mission Statement
Artfully documenting you with influences in photojournalism, fine art and a touch of fashion.
As a narrative story-teller, I create an environment and set the mood to help you feel comfortable in the moment and bringing out your authentic self, which also includes a lot of laughter and that joie de vivre all the while capturing your great essence. I strive to make your session a most comfortable and a safe place where it's okay to be you.
My goal in collaborating with you is to create treasured heirloom memories to cherish forever.
