Creating an atmosphere that you are comfortable in happens from the very beginning. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to pose, don’t know what to do with your hands, or “have never had a good picture taken” (which we hear ALL the time). We’re here to help you and will be showing you your photos as we proceed, so we can make adjustments and get feedback as we go. Our ultimate goal is to capture headshots that you will be proud to show off!

If you book makeup and/or hair services, your stylist will communicate directly with you about meeting times and how to arrive.. Typically, clients arrive 90 minutes before the shoot.

Sessions usually book a few weeks in advance. Immediate needs can be accommodated based on availability.

I am a commercial and lifestyle photographer known for making even the most reluctant subjects feel comfortable in front of my lens. When I’m not shooting in my sun-drenched studio on Oregon City’s historic Main Street, I’m on location helping my clients craft contemporary, on-brand images to help grow their own bottom line.

As the former owner of a PR & marketing firm, I helped Inc. 500-businesses communicate, reach and engage with professional and retail consumers. Today, I bring that expertise to my photography clients, where we translate brand messaging into the visual medium.

I laugh a lot. I work too much. And I love the fact that my job allows me to work with such a vast range of people and businesses. And because I sat on the other side of the desk for so many years, hiring photographers to provide what I now offer,  I am committed to making sure your project is completed on time. On budget. And with work that you’ll be proud to share with your audience.
