NEW WEBSITE! <—— Check it out!!
Oh my goodness I CAN’T BELIEVE it’s finally here! I have been saying I’m going to make one for the past year and a half and I finally did it. A lot of the reason it took me so long is because I just didn’t feel like I had all the new work that I wanted to be on there yet. I’m so happy I waited because I think it is so much better of a display of my style than I could’ve put up then. 2014 has been an incredible year for me so far. I’ve started to really believe in myself and what I have to offer to the world in regards to my work. If you know me, you know I’m a huge supporter of my friends and their work. I always want people to really know how great of a job they are doing because that is important for them to hear it. The thing is, I wasn’t also telling myself this. I got really down on what I was producing because this friend just shot the best wedding I’ve ever seen, or the most creative portrait yet, or look at the places they are going to and the things they are doing! It’s so easy to get caught up in that visual representation of someone else’s live instead of going out and living your own. This year I’m dedicating to living my own life instead of longing for someone else’s. Life is too short. I think what really hit me hard is when my sister asked me what I was doing on New Year’s Eve. I said “oh, probably just staying home.” She immediately replied something like “You need to GO OUT! You are only 25 on New Year’s Eve once, so make it count!” After that I felt empowered and did just that. I’m not too old to go out and have a great time and laugh and explore and be present in today. Life flies by so quickly and I don’t ever want to look back and wish I would’ve done this thing or gone to this place or launched a new website when I was terrified about what all the other creative and amazing artists and friends I know would think.
This website is totally me. Inside and out. So much laughter and great memories in these photos and I will cherish them all forever. Please do me a HUGE favor and check it out- AND let me know what you think!

Thank you to each and every one of you that has supported and believed in me the past 5 1/2 years I’ve been pursuing photography. From my teachers, (Tim Meyer in particular), who pushed me and helped me stay grounded at Brooks, to my friends who aren’t photographers that listened to me vent about photography and all that goes into it, to my family who has truly had my back since I crazily said that one day that I was going to photography school, and to each and every one of you who has trusted me with your family, your wedding, or taking your portraits- without all of you I would not be where I am today. Thanks for believing in me. Now I can fully say that I also believe in myself.
In honor of my new website launch- I’m giving away one portrait session! Leave a comment on why you want this and tell me who the one person that has impacted you the most in life is and why. I’ll pick one lucky winner! (Must be redeemed in Seattle, WA)
