I am a local Bellingham photographer handling many types of photography. While I love to shoot everything from weddings to events, I really thrive photographing sporting events. I don't know about you, but for me there is not much that can beat the smell of fresh cut grass on a cool crisp fall Friday evening standing on the 50 with a camera!

I have been making photos since I was 17 years old, getting started at North Kitsap High School with a photography class. After graduation, I continued my new found love and turned my creative expression in to a college education. I graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in Visual Communications: Graphic Arts and Photography in the spring of 1993. My final college project was an internship with the Bellingham Herald as a photographer.

I am pleased to continue developing photography and a photographers community with through out Northwestern Washington. If you have any photography or photo order questions, or to find out how to contribute your photographic passion to the WPANetwork please email me at

Thanks again for your time!

My motto is ‘do what you love, love what you do’. Expressing my creativity is one way I tangibly bring this motto to life. My creative outlets include pottery, up-scaling rusty junk into welded art pieces and photography.

Two years ago, I joined the online photography group 52Frames to take my photographic interest to the next level. 52Frames consists of over 500 photographers worldwide who are given a single mission: to participate every week with a new photographic challenge designed to stimulate creativity, expand expertise, and refine their personal voice. Each week brings a new learning opportunity with the critiquing of your photo by others and others critiquing of my photo. Growth through sharing and listening has made me a photographer who is always searching for ways to find the perfect light and composition to tell a story.

In addition to being a wedding, portrait and art photographer, I’m a full-time software programmer for a higher education software and consulting company. I’m the mother of a photogenic and patient student at Cheney Middle School and wife to a very supportive man. My family lives in the Cheney area, close to nature and close to town too.

I’m also a member of Spokane Women on the Fly, a group of women dedicated to sharing the joys of fly fishing with other women in the area. You will often find me out on rivers and lakes throughout the region searching for fish caught on a fly.

Thanks so much!

I’ve had a love affair with photography for most of the past 30-plus years that began with working alongside my grandfather, Buzz Eiselein, in his darkroom.

Along the way, I've had the opportunity to document the world around me at its best, and worst, in my work as a photojournalist and have witnessed great changes in photography as film has faded into history and digital cameras have been put into the hands of nearly everyone.

I now work part-time at the Moscow Pullman Daily News in Moscow, Idaho, along with freelancing for various entities, including the Associated Press.

My images have appeared in publications and online around the world, most notably in the New York Times, the New York Post, Sports Illustrated, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Sydney Morning Tribune and the Seattle Times.

I was born in Kalispell, Montana into one of the state’s pioneering newspaper families and grew up along the U.S. – Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, where I began freelancing for the Nogales International while in high school.

In addition to my work in journalism, I also shoot weddings and portraits, among other things. One of the strangest, and most challenging, projects I’ve done is photograph soil samples known as monoliths for a scientific database.

My wife, Anna, and I have been married for nearly 25 years. We have a daughter and two grandchildren, along with a dog and two cats.
