The Art of Authenticity

I’m a Eugene, Oregon based fine art photographer, artist, and creative. I am here to support you, and memorialize this chapter. I photograph families, maternity, empowerment, small-business makers, crafters, artists, and healers – to name a few. My photography is lifestyle & storytelling in nature. I capture the joy and raw emotion of life – your story is your own and it is an honor to bear witness.

I'm here to tell your real moments

The Artist

Eugene Oregon Award Winning Photographer

“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.”

~Auguste Rodin

Behind every smile is a story. There may be joy, heartache, love, and duality. All of you is worthy of remembering. 

"What is life without loss, love without loneliness, ecstacy without pain? You can't have one without the other, or you could never appreciate either"
-Courtney M. Privett

As a storytelling photographer, I don’t just capture moments; I weave a narrative that captures the essence of this chapter of life. Your story is unique to you, and while time is fleeting, this small window into your life will be memorialized and treasured for years to come.
