years in alaska
For me, family comes first. It's my main inspiration in this journey I'm on and I absolutely love connecting with others who share the same outlook on life.
I have always had a passion for photography since I was a child. I would be caught dressing up my little sister and styling her Shirley Temple curls just to get a few images. As I got older, I followed down the path of business management. I fell in love with helping small businesses grow and caught a slight addiction to sticky notes. As time went on, this path of business kept pulling me further and further away from my passion for photography, that is until now. As a photographer, I get to encompass both passions into one by bringing my work to life for the benefit of others. In my spare time, I get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors with my husband and our 2 kids. I love a glass of wine around the bonfire after a long day of fishing or relaxing on a beautiful beach!
I'm a small town Alaskan creative, designer and photographer with big dreams and an unusual sense of humor!

Man does time fly! It's shocking to know that we have been together for 22 years, 19 of which married! Many years ago, James and I met while attending a local high school in Anchorage. Before we knew it, we were married and he was in the Marine Corps. After a few years, we returned to Alaska and have remained here since.
We have been blessed with 2 amazing kids: 1 boy and 1 girl. I guess you can say we are the all American family. We even have a house full of pets from dogs, cats, sneaks and even a gecko! May it be offroading, fishing, or relaxing on the beaches, our favorite memories are made when we are out exploring.
I wish I had known sooner that the girl with her real estate and insurance licences would become a creative. It took many years, but letting it all go was the best thing for me! Not only do I love owning my own business (entrepreneur at heart), but I LOVE making others happy by bringing their vision to life.
