My family moved around quite a bit when I was growing up—from Virginia to Hawaii and Rhode Island—and I took photos wherever we stopped. Since settling in Portland, I’ve worked professionally for publications like Stumptown Footy and Rose City Review, where my shoots from Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns matches have featured prominently, and I’ve spent time as a team photographer for the Portland Winterhawks. I also work with individuals, small groups, and small businesses, including Flipside Hats, Katie Mudd Ceramics and West Building Company. I love meeting new people and helping my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera—it’s a process of bringing out natural smiles and light. One of my favorite things about photography is the opportunity to create significant moments that produce beautiful, memorable photos.
