Seattle Lifestyle Photographer » Fun, candid photography.


I’m currently in Cap-Haiten, Haiti, documenting the women / operations of Haiti Babi, a non-profit that employs women at twice the local wage to knit and crochet the most beautiful baby hats & blankets. The employment and consistent income allows them to provide food, education and housing for their families. I can’t wait to see first hand the big impact this little company has made in the last three years!

Yes, I know all about Zika and no, I am not pregnant. My arms and stomach have been poked and prodded by vaccines and pills in anticipation, I have enough deet to spray down an elephant and all of my clothes have been soaked in permethrin. I am a walking mosquito net.

Later this month I’ll be teaching again at one of the most fun creative conferences for photographers, Field Trip. From 2/21-2/28 I’ll either be shooting a wedding (2/20) or deep in a canyon, competing with other campers for what little wifi we’re able to eek out of that gorgeous landscape (21st – 28th).

If there is an urgent need to reach me during those stretches, please text me at 1.206.484.2912. All event & session inquiries will be responded to upon my return. Please note that 2016 wedding dates are booked through September. Thanks!



First, a heads up that I’ll be out of the office until March 5th, super excited to be teaching at the Photo Field Trip conference in Santa Barbara this weekend.

In the meantime, here’s a little scene I witnessed while visiting the Piazza Duomo in Lecce, a beautiful city in the Puglia region of southern Italy.  I immediately thought of the 1956 movie, Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon), one of my favorites as a child. This story ends a little differently. So sad to see the balloon fly off without the little guy.

    Tout n’est pas perdu! Le ballon existe toujours en tes photos!
    et aussi dans le coeur du garcon. La raison d’etre d’une bonne femme photographe
