Hey! I’m Olivia. I am a nationally-published, internationally-recognized photographer.

About Me: I am also, a journalist, a producer, an artist, and an adventurer. (AKA a wife, a mom, a Scout, a runner, a gardener, a crafter, and a chocoholic.)

I got my first camera at 6 years old and loved looking at the world through a different lens. After earning a journalism degree in college, I worked as a writer and photographer for many publications. I even was able to spend several years as a photo editor for a national magazine.

Once my son was born, it was time to put family first. So I left the corporate world to embrace the flexibility of freelance photography.

When I’m not behind a camera, you can find me looking for new adventures. These often include getting lost in a trail run with my German Shepherd, pulling weeds in the garden, buying way too many craft supplies, or staying up way too late.

My Mission: I love to connecting with the people through photography. My goal is to document you and your family in the most honest and beautiful way possible, and to create heirloom artwork for you to pass down for generations.
