I'm a creative portrait and lifestyle photographer from SW Colorado now living in Portland, OR! I found art when I needed it most. Starting with film, I was locked away in a dark room in my adolescent years. I attended college for my bachelors in Mass Communications and a minors in Digital Photography. After receiving my degrees in 2013, I started my own photography business which has shaped me with experience and personal growth. I haven't been able to put my camera down since!
Photographs are ethereal– meaning, they are just images that hit our eyes, and our brains process meaning. Photographs are just images– just like paintings, sculpture, or anything that exists in the world. Images affect us emotionally. Images force us to see the world in a different way and thats what I love.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Owning my own portrait photography business I have done all kinds of different shoots for a wide variety of individuals! My favorite shoots to date have been mountain elopements! Capturing the lose that exists between people will always be special.
