My friends call me the adventurous one… I plan the road trips. And the hikes. All the high school age nieces want to live with me for the summer. Ha ha! I absolutely love helping people relax and have fun, while using my camera to showcase the beauty in them along the way. “You made me feel like we had been friends forever,” a client recently wrote in a thank you note. Yay!! I love hearing that!
I grew up on a little farm at the Oregon Coast, racing barrels on my horse. My adventures have included everything from farming alongside water buffalo in China, to balancing on a raft in iceberg-laden waters while shooting a wedding in Alaska, to building a log cabin with my own two hands! I got my first fancy camera as we were on our way to West Africa for the adoption of our son in 2007, and I’ve been happily traveling everywhere my camera takes me ever since.
In 2015, I started a new adventure! My family and I said goodbye to our log cabin in the woods of the Pacific Northwest, and landed in the desert. Henderson, Nevada to be exact. I am overjoyed with the incredible variety of backdrops here, from red rocks to soft green willows to urban streets… And of course, the weather almost always cooperates!! I love it!
Following Jesus is my favorite adventure of all. My family has my heart, too, of course! I’m married to Corey, who is the Pastor at New Community Church in Las Vegas. We have two full-of-life kids, Kendra and Micah, and they are our greatest blessing.
I am honored to have had my photography featured in many publications, both nationally and internationally, online and in print, including Entertainment Tonight, Senior Style Guide Magazine, and Style Me Pretty.
So… Let’s start our own adventure together! I can’t wait to get to know you, have so much fun working together, and walk away from the experience with both of us having another story or two to tell.
