"A Portrait is Worth a Thousand Memories"

Ever notice how a photo can immediately take you back to a special place in time? It can light up your face with a smile and fill your heart with joy.  Life's moments seem to pass so quickly. From wedding day bliss to the birth of our children. Watching them grown and change every day. And with the arrival of their graduation and eventually their own weddings, life’s journey continues. My passion for capturing these moment for you is so that you can hold on to them for a lifetime!
A portrait truly is worth a thousand memories!

From the time I purchased my first film camera in my early teens, photography has been my life's passion.  After years of creating landscapes and capturing portraits for friends and family, I made the decision to set aside my career in interior design and real estate so that I could dedicate myself fully to the Art of Photography.  I started my professional training while pregnant with my daughter.  I was the only one in my class, on those hot summer days, hauling around camera equipment and a tripod in downtown Portland at eight months pregnant.  I was determined to capture every moment of my child’s life and to capture it in a beautiful way.  I opened my first studio in 2000, when my daughter started preschool, with a focus on pregnancy, newborns and children.  Over these past few years I have been blessed with the gift of doing what it is that I love the most, capturing life's special moments!  My body of work continues to grow as my business expands.  My Angel Series was featured Nationally in Los Angeles and was created for the Grammy's in conjunction with MusiCares.  My fine art line has been in various galleries.  My portraiture has grown to include corporate, weddings, high school seniors and families along with my pregnancy, baby and children specialty.  I take great pride in offering the latest and the very best to my clients. I am continually updating my equipment and editing software and expanding my specialty props line, while offering the latest in high end products and the finest printing in the industry. I strive to always offer the highest quality in a creative, relaxed and enjoyable setting, with an emphasis on amazing images and a memorable experience along the way.  My clients trust me with their special moments, my commitment to them is to give them my absolute all - Years of experience, a deep rooted passion and love for photography, hours of capturing and editing their images and all the icing on the cake!  This is why I continue to say...
