Seattle Portrait Photographer

“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.”

— Robert Frank

I am a mother of two young children and if you’re a mother like me, you’re hardly in any photographs. You’re always the one pulling out your camera or phone to take hundreds of pictures of your children and maybe some of your husband but not with yourself.

Thank you for taking the first step to be present in your family’s photographs. Make a commitment to be present and to be present regularly. Print your photos and display them, not leave on your computer to forget. Give your children something tangible, a physical reminder, of yourself that they can hold and look at and remember you by. Many years from now they will see these pictures and remember how you held them and kissed their owies, not how much you weighed or how many wrinkles you had.

Photographing you and your family is a privilege. Please allow me that privilege to create something beautiful and tangible that will last for generations and help you be present in your family’s legacy.

Please visit my Mission & Philosophy page to learn about my mission as a photographer and the legacies I help create for individuals and families.

A Personal Journey

I believe that all of us have a TRUE self. It is our HIGHER self. It is the self on our best days and the self we aspire to be. She’s in there. We just have to be able to see and remember her. Read about my personal journey and why I want to photograph women.
