The most important thing you should know about me is that I'm fanatical about the details. Years spent working in advertising, the music business, fashion magazines and at Target have taught me to be prepared so I can move fast. That allows me to focus on the most important thing... telling your story.
I’m curious and engaged in the world around me and that’s reflected in my work. My images have been described as fresh and powerful with a touch of classical sensibility. I describe them as “honest.”
I was raised in the Pacific Northwest and now Nashville is my home. I love music, supporting my community, smart design, painting, cameras and of course my beautiful family & wonderful friends.
Always singing our hearts out
Tell us about your wedding day.
My husband Gregg and I just celebrated ten years in September. We love in Nashville with our two beautiful children Parker and Thatcher.
Gregg and I got married at High Note Farm in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sept. 29, 2007. Surrounded by 180 of our closest friends and family.
We kicked off the weekend, Friday night, at a restaurant in the Gulch and continued the rehearsal celebration at Robert Western World where our guests were entertained by Brazilbilly. The Best Honky Tonk music and venue in Music City.
Most of our guests were staying downtown so on the big day, Saturday, we shuttled everyone out to the ceremony and reception location down Hillsboro Road to a private llama farm.
We had song titles instead of table numbers. Lavender Insect repellent, A bluegrass band. We did not have a maid of honor or a best man. Instead we did Best Ladies and Best Gents. A Buick getaway car. Late night grill cheese and burgers. After we said “I do” we walked down the aisle to “Foggy Mountain Breakdown.” It was a magical night.
Tell us about your background and where you're from.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and attended Washington State University, where I received degrees in communications and advertising. After going to graduate school in Atlanta for advertising and art direction, I landed a job with Target in San Francisco. Eight months later, I was fed up with her corporate commuter lifestyle. At that point I packed up and drove to Nashville, where I have have lived for 16 years. We call the South our home.
How did you get into photography?
I starting shooting fashion when I lived in Atlanta in 1998. I had just graduated from Portfolio Center and decided to take a few months off from Art Direction and rented a loft in Little 5 Points in ATL. The rest is history. I fell in love with photography. I love telling stories visually.
