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.

Using photography to change the world - one story at a time.

A Wet October at the University of Washington

Remember that horrible storm that swept through Seattle last week? The one that was supposed to blow all other storms out of the sky? That was the day of the Levine family photoshoot. Anticipating the storm, I diligently searched for indoor shooting locations and we agreed on the “Harry Potter” library at the University of […]

An afternoon with Grandam

The stories that I tell through my photography are not necessarily the grand stories of big events. The little everyday stories that make up our lives are just as important to me. One of my mother’s many skills is sewing. So every time I need a pair of pants patched, a sleeve hemmed or a […]
