What I'm all about

Meet the girl behind the camera!

 
Personally  I'm a natural-light, no-pose photographer currently based in Spokane, WA. I'm all about capturing the authentic connections and unposed moments between people! When I'm not shooting, I can be found working as a full-time graphic designer + design director, working out at my local CrossFit gym or simply exploring the city in search for the newest eats and drinks! I have a wonderful boyfriend and a german shepherd named River (after Joss Whedon's tv show 'Firefly') and often join me on my photo adventures whenever they can!

Professionally

Hey all you beautiful babes, lovers, sweethearts and unique, wonderful human beings!

You're probably looking for a photographer and let's be real, it's always tough making the right decision for you. There's so many different photographers... styles... prices.... trust me, I get it! And to be perfectly honest - I want you to be picky!

WAIT WHAT??!

No, seriously! I want you to be picky about your photographer in the same way that I am picky with who I work with. And as much as I love people and the relationships I have with my clients, I know that I am not always going to be the perfect fit for everyone. If you're interested in a photographer that just comes and takes your photos and leaves or who has the best deal or the lowest rock bottom prices, then I might not the photographer for you.

I want the authentic.

Authentic emotions. Authentic people. Authentic images. 

I'm not looking to just provide a quick service. I'm looking for long and lasting friendships with my clients! I want to chat, to hang out, to learn what you love, what you hate, what your dog's name is... (for real though) I want to get to know you! I want the couples who crave adventure. Who want to hike a little, hang out in a waterfall or jump into a lake. Who care more about their love for each other than achieving "perfection". I want the seniors who embrace their uniqueness, their personality and breach all things traditional. I want the families who understand that life happens, that children cry and pets don't sit still, and who embrace it whole-heartedly because they know there's beauty in authenticity.

My goal during any session is to capture the little moments - the pure, raw, unadulterated emotion. And while - yes, we'll still totally get those photos of you smiling and looking at the camera, I'll be primarily focused on us having fun and getting those candid, unanticipated moments. I live for these moments because they are 100% authentically yours. Ones that no one will ever be able to recreate. You're unique and you deserve to have that captured! And don't worry! You don't have to be a model or have any experience in front of a camera or even be comfortable in front of one for us to make magic happen! (And let's be honest - no one is every really ever THAT comfortable in front of a camera.) I'll be there to direct you throughout the whole session so you never feel awkward, but I'll also always make sure that you're having fun and interacting - not just robotically placed into stiff, traditional poses.

I want you to be yourself! Get rid of any notion you have inside your head of how you should look or how you should pose or act. Let's have fun! In my experience - it's the candid, undirected photos taken in the in-between moments that are always the best anyways. 

I want you to invest in yourself and in your photos in the way that I want to invest in you. So if you're ready to:

Be adventurous
Play games
Dance a little

Laugh a lot
Explore
Tell stories

Be vulnerable

then we might be a perfect match! So let’s get together, get this friendship started and capture all of those authentic, little moments that matter the most!
