I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Intermedia from Western Michigan University located in Kalamazoo, MI (yes, it's a real place)! Throughout my time in college and exploring the world, my eyes were opened to unlimited possibilities and I was encouraged to pursue a career in doing what I love!
For five years and counting, I've found endless joy in capturing the special moments and memories of others. Which leads me to where I am today, in the great state of Alaska, pursing my dream and love of being a portrait photographer! My bookings include wedding, engagement, family and maternity sessions.
My passion and love for photography first started with analog and alternative process photography. Working with my hands, developing my own film, printing in the darkroom, experimenting with hand-coated emulsions and wet-plates... it's the thrill and challenge I seek as an artist. Along with my mission to preserve and document amazing life moments for my clients, I also have a desire to educate others in the traditional ways of photography and keeping alternative processes alive.
Traveling and adventuring is also another passion of mine! I love to explore new places, go off the beaten path, and just spend quiet time in nature. I love hiking, running, biking, and doing yoga - anything to be outside! See more of my adventure photos on Instagram and on my Travel page! Overall, my ultimate goal is to glorify God with the gifts He has blessed me with and to serve others in this life. I would love to work with you, tell your story, capture you love and share our lives.
