Hello! Thank you for visiting my site!

My passion for landscape photography began when I took my first trip to Yosemite in high school. I carried my dad’s old SLR around, and exposed 4 rolls of 35mm black-and-white film. I was hooked the moment I saw my first print come to life in the dark room, and have enjoyed growing with and learning about them medium ever since that trip.

Nowadays, I find myself spending most weekends and vacation days hiking, exploring, and photographing the natural beauty of this planet with my husband, Brian, and our pup, Luna. We document our adventures on Bound to Explore; a travel blog dedicated to sharing stories, tips, and other information about the places we visit.

If you have any questions about collaborating, print sales, or image licensing, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email.
