I didn't dream of becoming a photographer as a child. I wanted to be a travel writer.
I have a degree in Journalism from Bradley University (Peoria, IL).
I worked as a reporter for a year before falling in love with photography and quitting my day job.
I am a self-taught photographer.
I've been in business for six years.
I shoot both film and digital.
I have a natural light studio in my home (Roseburg, Ore.)
I grew up between Glide, Oregon and Southeast Alaska.
I played Division I college softball.
I married my soulmate at age 24. We actually met in high school, but weren't allowed to date. Funny how things work out.
I have two beautiful children - Liam is 4 and Juno is 1.
I have a coffee addiction that is only rivaled by my shopping habit.
My husband restored a 1972 VW bus for my 26th birthday, which has affirmed my deepest desires to become a nomad and wear a lot of fringe.
