“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment that is otherwise gone.”
I am a photographer based in the small town of Grants Pass in Southern Oregon. Here our valley is divided by the Rogue River and held together by 3 bridges and some amazing people. Photography and people are what inspires me. On my journey I hope I can touch lives and bring something special to others. I love that photography freezes a beautiful or meaningful moment in time that you will be able to re-live forever.
I enjoy all types of styles of portrait photography. My photography passion is in working with children and adults with disabilities through non-profits. Sparrow Clubs of Southern Oregon are very important to me and Help Portrait. Local event photography for various organizations supporting mental health such as Rogue Winterfest and Out of the Darkness Walks are also among some of those I enjoy giving back to.
Seven years ago I ventured back into photography after not having formally picked up a camera since the days of dark rooms and in college. I found documenting humans during all seasons of their lives moving and meaningful. The journey has since led to both national and international publications, some reaching as far as the Today show and The Chive and recent work for human interest photography for Hearst Magazine and Cosmopolitan. 2017 led to being nominated among the top new wedding vendors for the state of Oregon and one of the best wedding photography studios. This year in 2018 we were voted into the top three wedding photographers in the state of Oregon for Oregon Bride Magazine. All of which I am SO very grateful for and has just been incredible!
I love to get together and explore options to fit your personal style and bring just the feel you are looking for to your photographs. I have several private properties available most of the time with things like barns, ponds, fields etc as well as some more manicured locations. I am a huge fan of adventuring to new places and locations as well! If you'd like your session to have a bit of adventure then I am your girl! Props and florals are always available upon request as well as styled shoots with some wonderful local vendors.
Southern Oregon is such a beautiful place to live but I also love and am available to travel. Let’s get together and capture some incredible moments.
