I'm a transplant to Central Oregon (originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota; more recently from the SF Bay Area) and absolutely love it here! Currently, I live in a small townhome in Eagle Crest with my rescue dog, Walter. You'll probably see a lot of portraits of him ;) Walt's my guinea pig on lighting and backdrops, much to his dismay.
My mission is to provide photographic art of you, your family, your pets, your friends -- your loved ones! that you treasure. I will work with you to design a portrait session, from clothing choices to location choices, to realize your dream result. After the session, I will help you choose your absolute favorite images, and we will create ART for you to enjoy every day. On your walls, in an album, in a beautiful display case, in a montage created just for you. I promise, you will have a lovely experience working with me because I am all about YOU. Listening to your needs, your expectations, your wants and then together you and i go about creating the perfect display for your home.
I work mostly out of my home in Eagle Crest, but I am happy to come to your home, garden, park or office, as well. I serve the entire Bend/Redmond/Sisters area, and love to get out and explore new sights. I offer the digital files, but feel it is a disservice if I don't help you create something long lasting -- a wall collection or album for example.
My specialties are:
- business branding sessions and business portraits
- family reunion sessions, family sessions
- senior/grad portraits- engagement sessions
- fine art maternity, newborn & baby taken in studio or on location
- some weddings & events
Whatever type of session you need, I will help you feel relaxed and comfortable so we can get beautiful, natural, & timeless images.I'll do my best to make it fun :) When you're ready, call me & let's talk. 925.785.7772. I will respond to your voice mail within 24 hours.
I have worked hard to build my artistry, which includes many hours of photographic instruction and conferences. I am a Certified Professional Photographer with PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and have been in business since 2007. I am also a very active volunteer to local charities & non profits, donating my time & talent to organizations I believe in. (the organizations dedicated to Christ get extra attention!) Please let me know if there's a cause you would like to see me support. I love to share my gift with others.
