Lover of long summer evenings, shooting on film, and salted caramel chocolates. 

I'm a storyteller who uses light and a camera instead of a pen and paper to document the real life, love, and human connection that we all have the privilege of experiencing in this world.

My favorite stories to tell are love stories of all kinds. Stories of soul mates who are head-over-heels for each other, of families who love fiercely, and of individuals who are learning to love themselves. I wholeheartedly believe that every love story is worth documenting in a way that brings joy and meaning to the people who are living it. 

On my favorite days you'll find me exploring the outdoors, cooking up a homemade meal for my family, finding time to read a book, or chasing thunder during a summer storm. 

Current loves: limes, Magnolia, peonies, ankle boots, New Girl, and the color slate. 



process + inspiration

Where I recharge, where I reflect, where I feel at home. My true happy place. I feel incredibly grateful that I get to be surrounded by gorgeous Montana mountains.

 old school film, that stuff our grandparents and parents used to take photos with. That stuff that makes a photograph deeper, richer, and 1000x more romantic than digital photography.

Film

Love notes left on paper, the bathroom mirror, or sticky notes, make me melt. Giving someone intentional time with words written from the heart is a true expression of love.

this man has shown me what it's like to truly love and truly be loved. So much of my inspiration comes from how he loves me, and how he loves our children - my other two favorite things.

my soul mate

Give me all the fresh flowers! I can't get enough of soft, delicate textures and lush bunches of fresh blooms. If I wasn't a photographer, I'm pretty positive I'd want to be a florist.
