With an art degree from Southern Oregon University in photography and computer arts, I began shooting professionally in 2002.
My first job was for a photographer that shot families and weddings. This introduced me to the wonderful world of portrait photography.
I began working for Dekker Photography in 2003, giving me the chance to work under an internationally recognized and award-winning wedding and portrait photographer. He helped me hone my skills and aesthetics into the photographer I am today.
When my mentor retired in 2005, I took over Dekker Photography and helped it grow into a studio that produces modern, cutting-edge and vibrant photography.
I approach each job with the goal to capture your unique feel and personality.
I have traveled around the world photographing different families and events, creating images in an original, artistic, and natural way.
