A little about me...


My Life //


Alaska is home for me and probably always will be. I was born & raised in the rugged Alaska interior, and am currently based in Palmer!


in 2023 my partner Phillip (of 13 years!) and I designed and built a cabin in Palmer, Alaska. After living in our van full time for 7 years, our cabin build is our pride and joy, and remains one of my greatest life accomplishments. 

In my free time, you'll often find me skiing (downhill, bc, xc), hiking, road biking, and just being outside. I also love cozying up at a coffee shop or brewery. My favorite types of food are Thai and Japanese. Phillip and I take pride in stocking our freezer as much as we can each year with meats and salmon we've harvested ourselves. MCM design has my heart, and I'm a huge supporter of other small businesses + creators!

My Art //

I received my Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography & Ceramics. Photography really holds my heart because of the emotional pull of documenting life's most tender moments, as well as the opportunity to create uniquely captivating imagery within them.

I am passionate about empowering people, particularly women, through creating art that makes both the model and viewer feel something. I believe art is supposed to push boundaries and bloom emotion in the viewer. 

My focus & passion are in both portraiture and elopements. I have an undying love for high fashion and editorial aesthetics, and at the same time, when it comes to elopements and weddings, I embrace a more documentary and candid-storytelling approach.

Our Experience //

I can equally be your hype girl at our portrait session, or the calming presence on your wedding day- a fly on the wall, capturing your day as it unfolds naturally and candidly. Our connection will flourish if you have a passion for emotive, storytelling imagery, a discerning eye for aesthetics and art imagery, an appreciation for the outdoors, and a sense of adventure to explore off the beaten path in pursuit of the perfect shot.

Each session or elopement is unique, and I strive to create a beautiful body of imagery that tells your story in a way that feels true to who you are, with a touch of fine art.
