With an art degree from Southern Oregon University in photography and computer arts, I began shooting professionally in 2002. My first assistant job was for a photographer that shot families and weddings, this introduced me to the wonderful world of portrait photography. I began working for Dekker Photography in 2003, giving me the chance to work under an internationally recognized and award winning wedding and portrait photographer. He taught me to hone my skills and aesthetics into the photographer I am today.
When my mentor retired in 2005, I had the amazing opportunity to take over Dekker Photography and help it grow over the years into a studio that produces modern, cutting edge and vibrant photography. I approach each job with the goal to capture the unique feel and personality of each client. I have been privileged to travel around the world photographing different families and events, creating images in an original, artistic, and natural way.
