Capturing relationships, personality, & smiles
Creating graphics, better websites, and better businesses
I specialize in location portrait photography for families and children. I capture relationships, personality, and spontaneous expressions to create images you will appreciate for years to come!
I aim to not only provide quality photos of beautiful moments, but to also create memorable experiences, so that when you look at your photos later you remember a special day shared with your loved ones. I often focus on getting candid shots of real engagement, expressive interaction, and natural smiles. These are the images that tell your personal story and remind you of your cherished connections.
For example, I know it can be hard for children and toddlers to sit still a portrait! I have young kids myself—getting that perfect family portrait can be so tricky! Especially if someone’s missing naptime, someone’s hungry, someone’s pulling someone else’s hair… I get it. I engage children with playfulness, patience, and understanding.
I often suggest that families play together instead of posing together. Engaging with each other naturally can let children’s curiosity and imagination to shine through. I believe we capture the best moments when you are in the moment, rather than posing for it. I focus on capturing children’s natural spirit, smiles, and personality.
I am happy to provide full-service photography. That means in addition to taking fantastic photos and editing them for you, I can help you determine great locations for our sessions, as well as activities and outfits that bring out your best. I can help you choose your favorite images and even assist you in ordering prints or designing wall displays and custom cards.
Depending on what you’re looking for, I may invite you to meet with me for a short 15-20min planning session or phone call to get to know you and recommend ideas, outfits, and locations, and more. I work primarily in the Spokane Valley, Post Falls, and Couer d’Alene areas.
I provide graphic design, interaction design, marketing, and SEO services for small businesses. I have extensive experience with interaction design and evaluating user experience across a range of technology—including websites, apps, and games. My past work includes creating marketing materials, websites, and advertisements for software companies and building educational tablet apps for children.
Family is everything. I'll take photos of your whole family together, plus pictures of children and individual portraits. These will be photos you'll love looking at for years to come!
I love capturing children's imagination, curiosity, and personality—especially when they're playing! I provide images that reflect each child's individual spirit and make you smile.
Graduating high school deserves recognition. Senior portraits reflect your personality and character. I am also happy to take portraits for students graduating college or for other important events!
Celebrating love? I'm in. I can take candid shots of the special moment, or we can plan a photoshoot with you and your new husband or wife-to-be to commemorate your promises to each other.
Nine months can go by so fast (except the last month, which feels like forever). Remember this special time with a maternity photoshoot: multiple outfits, outdoors, by yourself as well as with your spouse and other children.
Your furred, feathered, or scaled friends are part of the family, too! I'll take portraits of you with your cats, dogs, lizards, goats, or other pets, as well as individual photos of each animal. Or, if you're the plant type, I'm happy to photograph your cactus.
I take mouth-watering shots of delectable dishes for your restaurant menu or your website. I do the lighting, layouts, and styling. I'll come to you!
Need special invitations, holiday cards, or a company brochure? I can design custom products and graphics just for you, using photos from our session, as well as other photos and content.
