Q: Are you vaccinated against COVID-19?
A: Yes, I am fully vaccinated! I also plan to get boosters as they become available.
Q: Do you have other COVID-19 safety precautions in place?
A: Absolutely! In the studio I continue to have two HEPA-13 air filtration devices running, a UV-C wand I use to sterilize items that cannot be washed normally, Lysol wipes, and hand sanitizer. For newborn sessions I still wear a mask and have available tight fitting N-95 masks.
For now, when at the studio.
Q: What about outside?
A: Always I want to take my clients' needs into consideration. Generally though: when outdoors I will not wear a mask unless requested. During an activity like hiking, I will maintain distance and remove the mask as needed.
Q: Are you Insured?
A: Yes I am! I have liability and indemnity.
Q: Are you a licensed business owner?
A: Yes, I am licensed with the WSDOR.
Q: Do you take different forms of payment?
A: I take almost all forms of payment. Keep in mind, though, to book a date requires payment to clear before it is officially booked. So typically booking is done via credit card.
Q: Do you take precautions when working with babies and young children?
A: Absolutely! There must always be a spotter and someone to help with young children if they could accidentally injure the newborn. I have gloves and masks available as well as hand sanitizer. For newborns, the room will be kept warm. Always, babies will be handled with great care.
I’m a maternity, baby, and family photographer based in West Seattle. Born and raised in Washington state, I enjoy exploring this beautiful corner of the Pacific Northwest throughout all seasons and I love incorporating that into my work with clients. On the other hand, the studio is invaluable. There is so much we can create in studio where we have control over light and weather. I love being able to offer both!
I started out in weddings, portraits, and a little fashion! Eventually I discovered the awesome challenge of newborn photography as an amazing way to design and create bold and beautiful highlighting baby and their features.
Over time it also became clear that serving families to the best of my ability was a driving force behind my business. Seeing clients thrilled with the session experience and their printed images and artworks is the best ever!
For event and wedding photography and family as well, my favorite images to capture are the natural ones, the in-between moments with a hint of motion that really brings a level of intrigue to the viewer.
Look through my portfolio and you will find thoughtful portraits full of color and contrast.
I'd love to learn more about YOU and find out if our styles are a good fit!
Our family dog Eclissi is the smartest sweetest good ol' girl you ever did see!
I love taking pics of dogs too!
Banana Nicecream is kinda amazing... and one of my favorite treats! Just freeze some bananas... and blend in a highpower blender!
While sleep is sort of a higher priority lately, I love my telescopes and finding those faint fuzzies in the night sky!
One family tradition is camping! For many years that meant September blue tarp camping here in Washington. We still go nearly every year!
I love drumming and making music with my friends and family. Music will always be close to my heart!
I love plants and flowers, and all those birds and hummingbirds out there amongst them. Peonies are my favorite!
Elegance, "epicness", simplicity. These are the soul of my photography work! And they go hand in hand.
I strive for simplicity, with less being more. While at the same time, trying to strike the balance, incorporating just the right amount of unique, human, and beautifying elements. Bringing that wow factor and keeping focus on your newborn baby, sitter, senior, whoever is the subject!
Along the same lines of elegance and "epicness", I gravitate toward something more graceful and genuine! I live for creating fine art - high quality images.
And I may get a little too excited about glow...
Nothing better than catching those real honest moments and just having a good time!
