The Long Story

inquire now

My love of photography began in my early years learning from my grandfather and developed into a passion pursuit when I began rock climbing and started shooting weddings and outdoor adventures. I am particularly interested in storytelling and capturing “the moments in between” - the candid moments of pure emotion and experience that happen when we forget we're being observed.

I graduated from Humboldt State University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in cultural anthropology, specializing in visual anthropology and social technology. My research explored the impacts of social media use on culture shift in the rock climbing community and outdoor recreation industry.

I enjoy many forms of art and creative expression and have worked professionally as a classical singer on the east coast, crab fisherwoman off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, seamstress and costume designer around the country, a natural resources professional at Sue'meg State Park, and a social dance instructor in my local communities.

My clients include couples, individuals, families, climbers and athletes, outdoor and environmentally-minded brands, bands and musicians, and companies.

I enjoy experimenting with storytelling methods and am fascinated by the intricate details of life lived by the individual and the collective. I love to ask questions, observe dynamics, and listen to people's stories.

I aspire to capture emotional and internal moments with unique and mostly natural lighting in a fine art style. My goal is to integrate myself into your world and capture your unique experience.
