My Life Essentials:

Chocolate (the good stuff).

Moody acoustic music, Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Joshua James.

My family: the hubby, and my three children

Miss lady Contax

Film, film, film

A few unique vintage clothing pieces; love me a good thrifted find! 

A beautiful and inviting space, somewhere cozy where I can curl up and relax.


I first picked up a camera in high school, but it wasn't until a few years later, while living in Paris, that I realized what an essential role photography would have in my life. During those few months abroad, I had the most wonderful love affair with my camera. There's nothing else I'd rather be doing than capturing life on film. I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography, and have spent more than a decade with a camera in-hand. I earned a Bachelors of Fine Art Degree in Photography from BYU Idaho, I have been adjunct faculty at Utah Valley University since 2012.  


Capturing precious, fun, and candid moments in pictures is super important to me. The whole purpose of my work is to provide what I value most to everyone I photograph.
