“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.” -John O’Donohue
Before landing in Portland in 2018, roamed around Los Angeles county and the broader west of the United States for six years working on various artistic and educational projects. In the middle there stayed ten months in Carolina to spend precious extended time with family.
I have been honored to work on photography projects ranging from documenting feature film sets in Hollywood, night skylines and city streets, to engagement sessions in the forest and wildscapes, and newborn infants’ welcome into the world.
I draw inspiration from road trips, hikes and trail runs, literature, spontaneous adventures, and the sparkle in everyday discoveries around me. I believe that every point along the path of someone’s journey is filled with its own unique meaning while also throwing open a window to a thousand other connected stories.
Adoring and capturing visual beauty has been a passion of mine since disposable cameras became a thing sometime in middle school. Favorites to view beyond the lens: sweeping landscapes of national parks in misty weather; charming portraits awaiting capture and creation; magical lights and colors on a production set.
