Professional photography isn?t about gimmicks or tricks ? like anything wonderful, it is a mix of talent, hard work, and experience. I seek constantly to be open to people and moments, to see the details that others might miss, and to reveal the essence of my subjects in a way that is open, honest, and fun.
24 amazing years behind the lens has taught me a lot, making me more professional and better equipped to photograph the complexities of big events and little moments. I am a clear and straightforward communicator with the ability to know when to be where during an event. I have captured the look and feel of over 600 weddings and events, creating great art that showcases real people in their most precious times.
Shooting wedding and commitment ceremonies, bar and bat mitzvah?s, as well as world travel, has given me a sensitivity to differing cultures, rituals and events that carry over to my portraits, pet photography, and even corporate work. Mixing a documentary journalistic style with fashion while including more traditional coverage ensures my images are both timeless and contemporary.
As a business-woman living in the most diverse zip code in the USA, 98118, I am also active in The Greater Seattle Business Association, The Seattle Professional Photographers Association and The Rainier Chamber of Commerce.
