"Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography." - George Eastman
Give me my camera, a one-way ticket to anywhere, good food, good people, moving water, wide open spaces and a well-curated playlist and I’ll never stop smiling!
Hey there! Thanks for visiting my website and checking out my photography.
A little about me… I love working with people and capturing images that highlight the love, humor and passion my clients have for one another. Whether that’s connecting with a high school senior for their yearbook photo or spending an afternoon on location photographing families and kids, being behind the camera has always been my happy place.
I began my professional career in 2001 as a photojournalist with the Durango Telegraph after graduating from the University of Colorado and The Rocky Mountain School of Photography. I like to think I have an artistic eye and my ability to creatively capture the present moment is a strength and focus of my work.
I’m also a passionate traveler and outdoor enthusiast, I have kayaked the Grand Canyon, trekked through the Himalayas, mountain biked through the Desert Southwest and rock climbed in Australia. Throughout my travels I have photographed the unique people, cultures and awe-inspiring landscapes of these fascinating destinations.
If I wasn’t a photographer I’d probably be a musician, except for one small problem, I have absolutely no musical talent. Luckily, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph a multitude of venues and festivals capturing musicians such as The Decemberists, Leftover Salmon, Mason Jennings, Ozomatli, Trampled By Turtles and many more. From jazz, to alt-country, to hip hop, I never miss an opportunity to capture a live show and pretend I could actually be a musician.
My photographs have appeared in Adventure Sports Magazine, Paddler Magazine, Durango Magazine, The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, The Rocky Mountain Chronicle and The Durango Telegraph.
I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my two wild and crazy daughters, Ella and Riley.
