About Me

I opened my studio in 2007. I have been taking photos since the age of 10. By the time I started high school I always had my camera with me. When I wasn't taking photos, I was with my animals, teaching tricks to my dogs and horses. Rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing back to the wild or finding for ever homes for those in need. Through my journey I have hiked the hills of California, the deserts of Arizona, to the mountains of Colorado, before I finally found home here in Oregon.

I enjoy and create several forms of art. I am about using all of my talents to bring a vision to life. With professional equipment and lighting in my studio and on location I incorporate the best of traditional disciplines, and my own personal vision and style, to produce images that show elegance, beauty, personality that are unique to you.

I am a classically trained dancer, a runway and fashion model, and bring those experiences to each photo shoot. I have worked extensively with people, animals, and nature.

I have photographed High Fashion, Concerts, Runway Fashion, Hollywood style Glamour, Boudoir, Landscapes, Nature, Animals, Portraits, Authors, Musicians, Models, Children, Families, Business, High School Seniors, Pinup, Noir, Charity Functions, Festivals, Promotionals, Alternative, Horror, Fantasy, Calenders (promotional, advertising, non-profit) and I am experienced in advance Photoshop techniques.

Let me assist you with bringing your vision to life.

My studio is available by appointment only.
