Photography

I specialize in life and travel photography, focusing on the details: the little street art that catches your eye, the little smile of a loved one on an ordinary day. Life is details, and sometimes we lose sight of them. I'll help you get lost in them, at least for a little while.

My favourite photos are full of love and light, focusing on things others often overlook. This is what I strive for in my photography: life, in all its forms, as it is, with all its rich detail.

About Me

I've lived all over the U.S. and East Asia but currently call Seattle home. Growing up a bit of a nomad, I needed to document the fleeting worlds around me in words and pictures. My camera has been my constant companion, capturing the places and people who've helped fill in the details of my life: from loud nights with my large family to quiet mornings in coffee shops with friends; through my time as an anthropologist, working in tourism to one of the most isolated countries on Earth, a Japanese preschool teacher, and now parenthood.

More information about me, about recent shoots, and anything else I feel like blathering on about can be found here on my blog.

Packages

Life Session

The most precious moments are the little ones, small and ephemeral, that warm your heart. Life sessions focus on you as you are, where you want to be -- whether that's your home, your favourite eatery, the beach; wherever you feel most like yourself.

Voyager Session

Voyager Sessions are the same as Life Sessions, only we all hop on some form of transit and get away to a new locale for a quick little trip.

Pricing

Sessions are priced by the hour, starting at $150/hr. This includes an in-person consultation, an online gallery (viewable for 14 days) from which to purchase prints, at least 10 images for digital download (gotta be eco-friendly), and a personalized thank you packet. Payment is due within 5 days from date of consultation. If I come to you, please note that a $1/mi fee will be added for any location 20 miles outside of 98106. Prices are subject to change. Cancellation or postponement fees may apply.

Booking

How to Book: Click the link below and choose a slot on my Google Calendar (you will need a Google account for this). You will receive a follow-up email after your booking to schedule an in-person consultation prior to the session.

Once your session is scheduled, I will block out two hours before and two hours after your session to prevent bunching. Sessions are essentially first come, first served. Please note that I will only schedule two to three sessions per day.

I am currently only booking weekend sessions. If you'd like to do a weekday or weekday evening session, please contact me and I'll see what I can do.
