A SoCal girl at heart, my early days were spent entertaining my competitive spirit as a surfer and equestrian rider. I fell in love with photography after discovering the darkroom in high school, but put that dream on hold to pursue my passion for sports. At 23, I became one of the first female professional snowboarders. I had pro-models and spent the next 10 years traveling the world competing in various events (including the X Games) and making a name for myself as an athlete. Throughout my career as a snowboarder, I always knew that I would come back to photography. I invested in photography school, bought professional gear and took time off to shoot. After spending three years earning my chops as an assistant for photographer David Stoecklein, I made a home for myself in Idaho and began shooting anything I could: kids, weddings and, my personal favorite, portraits. I now live in Sun Valley with my best friend and boyfriend of 13 years, Mark, and our rockstar daughter Presly. I have a close relationship with wine, tacos and hot sauce, and get along best with people who don’t take themselves too seriously. I love what I do and take pride in a knack for noticing and capturing what makes my clients special. I am also grateful to have been voted “Best Photographer in Sun Valley” for the last 10 years!
