I’m the mother of two amazing little boys and the wife of the most supportive husband in the universe. We are lucky enough to live on the Southern coast of Oregon enjoying daily coastal sunsets right from our living room windows.

We enjoy hiking, camping, beach combing and gardening. We love doing things as a family and enjoy sharing the beauty of our natural world with our children.

I have always adored photography, as it is a medium that quickly captures the world around me. I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I do. They are my favorites.
