Photographing the world is my passion, my art, my worship, my joy, and my job. I am so blessed to be able to do what I LOVE for a living. Recently, Today Magazine, a Christian South African magazine, asked if they could feature me as their “artist of the month” and do an interview in their magazine with me. They asked questions about my art, but also what my heart is for raising awareness and impacting others with my photography. I hope you can read the article and, in doing so, get a better glimpse into my world of photography, work, and my heart.
Recently, I was hired to photograph a team of executives from Melvin Mark Companies for a new ad campaign they are creating called “Get Melvinized” which speaks of their expertise and experience in the Portland commercial real estate industry. Here is one of the ads with my studio portrait photography in Portland, Oregon.
Hello all! I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new website! Check it out!
I’ve taken some time (behind-the-scenes), between photoshoots, client meetings, emails, taxes (whaaaat, what’s that?!) blogging, bookkeeping, being a mommy to an adorable 2-year old, moving houses, being a wife, killing it at Crossfit (haha.. that last part is laughable), keeping up on social media (what’s this stories thing I need to do?)… okay, clearly a lot… to find and curate images that speak to my style, breadth of work, expertise, and experience. I’ve narrowed the galleries down extensively, but hope it gives my viewer (you) a quick and beautiful walk through my work. My passion.
If you’re a photographer and you’ve never been to India… go! India is full of vibrant colors, rich culture, and beautiful people! I had an amazing time walking and exploring the streets of towns like Jaipur, Udaipur, Puna, Jodphur, and they all have something unique and beautiful to offer. For instance, Jaipur, is the Pink Town, so much of the old Jaipur is painted in pink! Jodphur, on the other hand, is the Blue City, so most of the town’s buildings are blue! Its incredible. Here are a few clips from my time in India! If you’d like to see more, don’t hesitate to ask! I am always a ham to show my photography!
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel
I was recently given the great opportunity to photograph fashion designer, Seth Aaron (winner of Project Runway) and the beautiful, Katya Timokhina for a fashion spread regarding the Portland fashion scene. Seth’s designs are a living example of Coco Chanel’s quote. His fashions are IDEAS, a way of LIVING, and most definitely, what is HAPPENING now!
