I had no idea what I was getting into when an (amazing) photographer friend, named Teresa Vick, asked me if I wanted to join her group in a project called the Traveling Dress Collective. And to say that I was floored with the talent in the entire collective, as well as my group, is an understatement!!

This has been one of the most exciting projects that I have been part of, ever. I was the first of my group to shoot our dress. In February, it was February people.

I had to sit on these photos, not sharing them with anyone, since February!

Anyway, just a few days prior we had a foot of snow on the ground. I live in the typically gray-wintered pacific northwest (Seattle), so to say that I lucked out with the weather, is also an understatement.

It was still quite chilly, so I am forever grateful for my model and her husband who were willing to walk around the chilly hillside with me and create my vision for our beautiful skirt/dress!!

I freelensed about 90% of the images and had a fantastic time shooting just for me! If you hadn’t already heard, our dress was hand made by one of our very own group members, Lexy! Amazing isn’t it? So is she!

Graphic Designer since 2005 and natural light photographer producing mostly black and white images, some color, with a fine art style, located in Vancouver, WA, USA.

I love creating. I love finding beauty in the mundane and seemingly trivial. I love being a part of creating beautiful things. 

I tend to be an over-sharer. So here goes. Music, movies, and imagery are God's gifts to me. I'm convinced these are the tools He chooses to communicate with me. I make mistakes everyday, try to clean up the mess alone, make it worse, then finally, as a last resort call on the One I should have in the first place. I'm desperately searching to fill the hole that only He can fill and everyday I become more convinced that it won't be filled here... and I can't wait to meet Him face to face. To finally meet who I was created for. To finally understand.
