Photographer

How did you get started with photography

I started photography in highschool when I babysat my little cousins. I would borrow my aunts camera, and go wild with photos of the kids. Soon, my Father passed down an old film camera, and said 'If you can learn to use this, and like it, I will buy you a good camera.' Little did I know, I would fall head over heels for film, and still shoot it nearly 10 years later.

What do you love about your job?

I love capturing the special moments in between what everyone thinks ~should~ be captured. The cute, intimate, private seconds leading up to the shot, and after. When the subjects are relaxed, in their own element, and enjoying that moment to the fullest, purely, that is what I love most.

What are some of your favorite places in Portland to take photographs?

My favorite place to shoot is in nature, anywhere green and overgrown, surrounded by big trees, or right in the Gorge. I love to use nature to mirror the beauty that is real life. The Pacific Northwest provides so many opportunities for beautiful landscapes, it is hard to pick favorites!
