The discussion centered around ethics in technology and digital product studio Substantial was the perfect backdrop for this meaningful conversation. The evening was curated to perfection by Gather’s founder Chloe Csadenyi-Benson and guests enjoyed a […]

Oiselle

Oiselle is a fierce tribe of women comprised of runners and athletes of all stripes. It’s a Seattle-based retail company with global reach and impact, and I was so lucky to get to do a lifestyle shoot with them recently. Our original plan was scrapped entirely by one of Seattle’s classic snow storms, so we […]

Samara is a new restaurant nestled in Sunset Hill, a subsection of Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. It’s helmed by chef and owner Eric Anderson and centers on cooking over the fire.

Burns Sisters

I feel like I have been a part of this family’s journey since the very beginning. I first met mom, Beth at our ad agency job many moons ago. Early on we discovered that her upcoming honeymoon was at the exact time and on the precise island as my upcoming family trip. Soon after, we […]

If I had to use one word to describe little August, it would be the explorer. During our recent family session at Schmitz Preserve Park in West Seattle, he was our trail guide taking us down all the paths at lightning speeds. He was tough to catch, and often had many toddler opinions on which […]

During the holidays, there are so many great spots to get family shots, but one of my favorites is Discovery Park. There’s an area with loads of pines that looks just like a small tree farm. It was just the spot for some sweet pics with Mary and her little reindeer, I mean, daughter. Our […]

Gather Seattle Podcast Recordings

I first met Chloe, founder of Gather Seattle in the summer of 2017. I had reached out about photographing an event at Matthews Winery, and she took me up on it. It was an absolute dream. I got to capture a beautiful farm to table lunch and participate in inspired conversations alongside other Seattle creative […]

Engagements

With a 5am wake-up time for a shoot, you’re either very crazy or very stoked. Ok, maybe a little of both. This was absolutely one of the most amazing early mornings I’ve experienced in my life. My sister Marie is engaged to her sweetheart Trevor, and we adventured all over San Francisco’s stunning Marin Headlands […]

Baden Fox Family – Alamo Square

I go way back with this sweet fam. Team Baden Fox holds a special spot in my heart. When I first moved to the Bay Area, Alli and Dave were such a support system for me. I went to Alli’s baby shower, photographed Zach in his mama’s belly, and again when he first arrived. And […]
