Photography for Local Business

I help local businesses connect with their community through visual storytelling. My documentary-style approach creates images that feel like an authentic representation of the service, business or product—it feels authentic because it is.

I maintain long-term relationships with my clients, planning several shoots throughout the year to capture the full range of their daily experience.

Drop a line if you’d like to learn more about developing a project. We’ll discuss goals, creative inspiration, timeline, and budget. From there we can develop a plan that feels achievable for everyone.

Creative Producer

Websites. Branding. Brochures. Annual Reports. Product Packaging. Animation. Social Media Campaigns. Event Posters.

What do you need to make? Whatever the project, I can help make it happen. With 15+ years of experience turning vague ideas into award-winning projects, I’ll help you start and finish the project that’s been on your mind.

We’ll work together to clarify goals, establish a scope of work, determine a reasonable budget, as well as choose and hire your creative team. I’ll make sure everyone understands the big picture and their role in it, once we get started I’ll keep the team and your project on track.


Documentary Photography for Families

Let’s hang out and capture how it really feels—those in-between moments when your hands are full, your fingers are sticky, or you’re just being present (or exasperated) with the kids. Forget about your phone for awhile, I’ve got this.

We’ll spend a few hours together or a whole day. We’ll go for a hike, visit a local museum, swing by your favorite park, or just hang out at home. Whatever we do, it’ll be a normal day in the life of your family and, as a result, the images we make together will be a lasting reminder of those precious, fleeting moments of childhood.


Ending the Silence: #metoo

The hashtag went viral with a tweet in October 2017:

“If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘Me too.’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.”

Watching my social media feed flooded with friends and loved ones posting #metoo, I was stunned and heartbroken. I channeled the emotional energy toward creating something that would bring the conversation off our screens and into our community.
