Living in the Pacific Northwest my entire life I have a deep respect and appreciation for our colorful and diverse culture unique only to only us. My photography is an ongoing pursuit to illuminate the many faces and personalities longing to be seen in unison with our beautiful surroundings. Since achieving my BA in 2007 in the Fine and Performing Arts Department at Western Washington University I have professionally been shooting in the special events photography genre. My portfolio is ever expanding and I am now focusing on incorporating my artistic vision with my models and varied set locations. Over the last decade I have also honed my photo editing skills and have explored unique print materials creating many new and exciting ways to showcase my models and work that others have not attempted.
