I was born in a valley in Southern Oregon and became instantly dependent on the infinite surrounding mountains as a source of inspiration. I am a photographer based in the heart of Oregon -- Bend, Oregon.
I photograph weddings and portrait sessions all over the world. Though, I frequently visit and photograph in the Pacific Northwest, San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego & Santa Barbara Counties, Northern Arizona, and Colorado. I have the heart of a vagabond and the wildest, vivid imagination. If you trust me with creating your images, you won't regret it.
We'll make magic. I promise.
Big fan of contradiction.
My day started at 5:30am, nursing assistant clinicals in my favorite Ortho Neuro until 3, ran home for 30 minutes to stuff my face and give my sweet #maggiedoodlealltheday some afternoon lovins, then to the hospital to volunteer in the ICU, then home to do homework until midnight. These Mondays are intense and sometimes feel impossible, but at the end, I'm so grateful for them. I secretly look forward to being pushed, to be challenged to take care of myself -- even when it feels like there's no time for it -- especially when I know I can and WILL fit even more into a day in coming years. 😉 #psych + #premed + #nursing
First official day of clinicals. (Ortho / Neuro is where it's at, please don't make me move!) 5am wake up call and a long day of being nervous and learning, but I'm still buzzing from the Good experienced today.
It's incredible to witness firsthand and confirm what I spent so much time researching last year (doctor/medical staff - patient communication): a comforting touch, a genuine grin, playfulness, and empathetic inquiry have the power to save lives. (And I mean literally.) #medicine #medicalanthropology #careerchange // #premed + #psych + #nursing
