Principal Photographer

What is photography’s appeal? It is a fraction of a second that you try to capture, with better or worse technique, with deeper or shallower depth of field, with WOW or so what results. That’s what draws photographers to create, and it is this magic that makes photography an art. The essence of photography, goes beyond what can be captured with the camera and be shown to others. It is the experience of the moment, and how one learns through the years to be aware of the present.

I have an artists eye that sees things differently. Photography is the medium in which I share that vision and I can hardly wait to share it with you. So that you see yourself as I see you: amazing, daring, creative, whimsical, bold and incredibly Beautiful!

With over 13 years as a professional photographer I created a studio so that I could focus my talents on the goal of empowering every women in my community.

Empowerment is felt through out the experience. I will guide you through the art of creating your images.

We start by meeting up to plan, encourage and get to know each other so that we an capture your uniqueness.

Your feelings of nervousness or unease are addressed and then work with you to feel confident in your decision to have a Boudoir shoot. Along with my passion for empowerment I have 100's of ecstatic past clients and have completed a certification program so you can rest assured that I am committed to giving you the best photo experience of your life and that I know exactly what I am doing.

Together we explore different looks and types of images so you know that your pictures will portray your distinctive personality. At Mt Hood Photography we help each client with wardrobe selection, accessories 

and look or feel of the shoot so that you are eager to see your images after your session.
