Hello! I'm a commercial and editorial photographer focusing on food, travel, and lifestyle. I'm based in Portland, OR and available for travel worldwide. I work locally in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver/Boulder, and am open to being pitched about other locations! 

My favorite projects are rooted in rich collaboration and dynamic storytelling. I believe that the sum of a project is always greater than its parts. Whether we’re working one-on-one, or we’re building a team in studio or on location, it is the energy and dynamics of collaboration that will make our project thrive. This is where the magic happens. The magic also happens in the interplay between light, color, texture, and composition. My never-ending fascination with these elements is what drives my passion for photography.

My path into photography was by way of a food blog, The Year in Food, a celebration of color, produce, and home cooking. This led to a cookbook that I wrote, developed and photographed, Vibrant Food. Prior to that, I studied furniture design, which gave me a great eye for detail and fine-tuned my problem-solving skills. 

What energizes me: foggy mornings, tall mountains, salt air, getting lost in the woods, scheming road trips, desert pastels, strong cups of coffee, hiking til my feet hurt, jumping into mountain lakes. 

I look forward to working together!
