family photos remind us of the love in our life

All families want to have beautiful artwork of their loved ones to treasure.  I am just like you and want to have  photographs of my family to stop time. You blink and the children in your lives have grown. We can't get the time back but with photographs we can stop time and preserve precious memories for a lifetime of enjoyment. 

Let's plan today how we can capture your loved ones and savor the memories.

Let's never stop making memories together


  What types of sessions do you photograph?

I want my clients to have all of the information they need when considering me as their portrait photographer. Here is a list of my most commonly asked questions.

While I focus mainly on families and seniors my journalism background prepared me to shoot a little of anything. I photograph business branding and portraits, real estate listings and select events in and around the Vancouver/Portland area.

I studied photojournalism in college and have a degree in journalism from the University of Montana, GO GRIZ! I worked for newspapers for the first 10 years of my career and have been in business for myself since 2008.

Don't worry! Once you have booked your session, we will talk about all the details to your specific photo shoot vision as I get to know you! Once we decide the best locations to fit your goals, I’ll offer my input on outfit color/choices that best compliment those locations.

Sessions are scheduled during a very precise time of day based on the type of shoot you need for your session.  Light can vary greatly depending if we choose to shoot. Most of my sessions are scheduled in the late-afternoon/evening hours of the day. Different times of the year affect what time that will be. Indoor shoots are often scheduled for mid-morning light.

I’m so excited to work together to create keepsakes and artwork that will live in your home and make you smile every time that you see them. Having personal photos in my own home has made it feel warmer and more welcoming every time I step through the door, and I want the same for you. 

I am excited to chat with you! E-mail is the best way, or use the contact form below.

Sessions offer a customized photo shoot experience from beginning to end. Session fees range: $150-350, depending on time/locations/outfit changes. Portrait collections and a la carte items (i.e.: digital images/prints/products) are sold separately;

Please e-mail me the details with your name, business name, and website. I would be happy to partner together if we are a good match. 

I am always happy to answer clients questions! Feel free to email me at or
call  1-360-216-5152 during traditional business hours.
