My passion for photography started when I began following the chickens around on our family farm with my mom’s camera. After many rolls of film and lots of patience and support from my parents, I moved to Seattle to attend school. Photography Center Northwest became my second home, but being a country girl, I moved back to Yakima with my husband when I graduated.

When I’m not taking pictures, I work two part-time jobs, at Inklings Bookshop and driving tractor for my dad on the farm. I love to read and always carry a book with me, but my biggest passion is capturing the excitement and personality of the people I photograph.
