Everyone has a story and I'm here to tell it. From the time I was a young child, I have always loved stories - verbal stories that my parents would tell me before bed, picture stories from books, and animated stories on the screen. I studied storytelling in college getting a degree in theater and turned that love of storytelling into my profession when I picked up my first camera and used it to tell the stories of those around me. Since then, I have told hundreds of stories all over the world, and I'd love to capture yours.

A Magical Childhood Shoot at Greenlake

I don’t know if it was all an act, but these four siblings connected with each other in a way that was really beautiful. I’m sure there is plenty of fighting at home, but for me, they really let their love for each other shine. We met at sunset at Greenlake Park in Seattle on […]

Day In The Life of Tahmina, Robert and the Twins
