Both of my parents were avid hobby photographers and I grew up learning about film development from a very young age since they both had developing equipment in their homes. So I learned, from a very young age, about the process of developing film and the anticipation of seeing the image. As a teenager, one of my first major investments was in an Olympus film camera and then eventually another so I could have one filled with color film and one with black and white film all the time. As an adult, my love photography as a hobby continued to grow, practicing a lot on our four children. Eventually, people started asking me to take their own photos and a hobby became a business.

I have been photographing all kinds of events in the Willamette Valley and beyond for over 8 years now.  I consider my specialty weddings but I also enjoy capturing families, seniors and more!  Most of my actual sessions take place during the summer months as I also am the Director of a small private school for girls in Junction City during the school year. I really enjoy meeting each couple and one of favorite things to do is being able to do their engagement pictures as it really helps me to get to know the couple before their special day.  My couples have always been happy with their photos, turn around time and have even been so awesome as to recommend me to their friends and family!  I'm so thankful for each one of my clients!
