My Story

  "Take good photographs and the art will take care of itself."
         ---  Edward Steichen

Photography is an essential part of my life. It’s my way of documenting and sharing with others how I see the world and the people in it. Whether it’s a portrait made in my professional studio in Bellingham or a personal project photo shot on the fly, it’s my vision and my eye that sets the resulting image apart from one by anyone else.

At my Bellingham portrait studio and gardens, I photograph families, children, high school seniors, business professionals--people from all walks of life. Using skills as a professional journalist and writer, I get to know my subjects before they step in front of my camera. That, combined with my life-long experience and training as a photographer, allows me to create portraits to truly reflect your personality.
