 Seattleite | Light Chaser | Life Documenter

My love for making images started early in life. Somewhere in the late 90's I was rummaging around my parents closet and came across a dusty canon AE-1, picked it up, and starting documenting every moment of life that I could. To this day that little 35mm film camera and I have yet to be separated, and though I don't take him out as often as I would like, he still sits on my desk every day as a reminder of where I came from. I am passionate about little transitioning moments in between the posed photos. Maybe your mom is brushing the hair out of her face just-so while your father takes a moment to steal a glance. Perhaps someone you love is nervously twiddling their thumbs or grasping your hands tightly in theirs. These are the little things we all take for granted - the smal memories that happen and then fade away. But it's important that they stay, because they help paint the bigger picture that makes up our lives. Collaborating and making images with clients is so important to me that It is my firm belief that we establish a level of friendship and trust.  I am going to do everything in my power to support you through out our time together. I will make sure you are heard and feel respected, and will go to bat for you if needed. Even if it is just simply clearing the room so you can just. breathe.
