I am a portrait photographer based in Redmond, just east of Seattle, WA. I began as a nature and wildlife photographer and if you follow my blog, you'll see that I am passionate about wildlife and kindness toward animals.
I enjoy capturing the "moments between the moments." It's rewarding for me to catch a giggle or a candid interaction that evokes emotion and tells a story with a single image, so it was natural for me to want to expand the sibling interactions and relationships I enjoyed photographing so much, which led me to high school seniors. Here's a fun fact: I've photographed more senior boys than girls. I don't know why, it's just worked out that way. Seniors are fun and keep me on my toes. There's always so much to talk about during a session, what their goals and dreams are, what college they hope to attend, their favorite television shows, music or movies and I enjoy every minute of it.
I am supported by my wonderful staff:
Deborah Rasmussen, Makeup Artist
Michelle Turner, Assistant
Sue Razwhall, Accounting
My photographs have been published in Distinctive Homes magazine, Net Author's E2K: A Journal for the New Literary Paradigm, "Breathing Space" on O, The Oprah magazine website and Nature Photographer magazine where I was a Field Contributor for three-years.
