A couple of years ago, Anne Simone and I sat in the Hyatt's bar in downtown Atlanta, and we came up with a wild scheme: go to the Oregon coast and create, rest, breathe, work, and build a community of creatives. Photographers, writers, entrepreneurs. Women working on their lives, selves, careers, families, and dreams.Read More
While on my 10-day roadtrip through New Zealand in December, I met many places that now play through my mind like an old movie--blurry around the edges, but crystal clear in the power of the visceral feeling pounding through my chest. I am haunted, driven to re-live each moment as it swirls through both my conscious and sub-conscious...Read More
I found a new part of Forest Park one sunny Monday morning. It beckoned. Come, it said. Let's play.
Rachel, Sarah and Chandrika met me there over two separate days, and this is what happened. I love them all--such different women, such beautiful and unique faces, and such individuality.

Nathan and I took a trip out to the beach for an unseasonably sunny, warm day at Cape Kiwanda. We roamed around in t-shirts, soaking in the sun and wind. It was glorious.
I took this on our way back to the car. Happy children were making use of every last minute of light to play and laugh and roll down the sand.
I was wandering aimlessly the day I took this picture, slowly following my nose around the beaches, taking a break from the city. I ended up at Hug Point, following the rocks around to the waterfall in the cove often hidden by high tides.Read More
If you love unique landscapes (preferably involving water), you may have heard of The Subway in Zion National Park. When I first saw photos back in 2008, I became obsessed. It’s a beautiful natural tunnel with water flowing through clear water pools, all tucked away 4.5 miles away from a winding country road in Zion’s wilderness. The “trail" to it is littered with boulders, a rambling creek...Read More
Not often does Portland get a pileup of beautiful fluffy white snow. When it happens, there are equal parts joy and panic. Really though, it's a glorious event and I love going out late at night with Nathan to explore in the winter wonderland...Read More
