All the Pretty Faces

Where did January go?  Once the holidays wore off, I went from slow moving and relaxing, into overdrive.  I love being busy.  It really is the only way I get anything done otherwise I just procrastinate. 

So far, the year has been packed with lots of amazing meetings as I set up some big plans for this year.  I have also been really busy shooting some fun stuff that I will be sharing soon.  For now, I will leave you with an impromptu photo collaboration I did this past Monday with my friend and fellow artist Francesca Berrini.  Stop by her website and give her work a look. 

When your client reschedules and you have the studio booked for the evening, what better way to spend you time then calling upon your friends and getting a little weird.  Big thanks to Cassie for assisting and Nichole for modeling!  Expect more of these in the future!

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
