I'm a Missoula-based lifestyle senior portrait photographer in Montana. I've got two little birds named Flash and Mozart. Mozart loves to sing (he digs the classical repertoire) and Flash likes to talk (one of his favorite words is "Peekaboo!"). I love to cook and really love to bake (cakes and pies make my sweet tooth happy), I'm a huge fan of the great outdoors (camping, adventuring, hiking anybody?) and one of my favorite pastimes is walking downtown to enjoy some good eats and great live music in one of the many awesome Missoula establishments.
I was born in Montana, spent a wonderful childhood in the Midwest, completed my undergraduate degree in English at Carleton College but fell in love with photography there (if you're still looking at schools, seniors, I can't say nearly enough about my experience at Carleton - absolutely incredible!), moved back to Montana to receive my master's degree in photojournalism from the University of Montana, worked in Seattle at the amazing Seattle Post-Intelligencer (while it was still a printed paper), and when I landed back here in Missoula, it was clear I'd returned home. I love being able to explore all the beauty Montana has to offer, and often venture out on photo expeditions just to have fun exploring with my camera. I also occasionally teach photojournalism classes at the U of M as an adjunct professor and delight in watching students' excitement grow. People are so interesting to me, and I find it completely rewarding to meet and photograph seniors at such an exciting time in their lives (I was there once too!). Senior portraits are extra special to me because I adore people in all their uniqueness, and I find it fascinating to be able to tell people's stories. Would you like to know more?
