Hi! I’m Olivia.

I am a photographer, a journalist, a producer, an artist and a storyteller.

(I’m also a wife, a boy mom, a dog mom, a Scout, a night owl, a nature lover, a runner, a gardener, a crafter, a scrapbooker, a wine aficionado, a cookie monster and a chocoholic.)

I started out life curious, camera in hand at age 6. My mom told us to be detectives; to figure it out.

Looking at life through a lens stuck. After earning a journalism degree, I worked as a writer and photographer for newspapers and various other publications. Then I served as a photography editor for a national publication before striking out on my own.

Now I chase light and stories. I am driven to create. I love to learn. I love to build, to design and to collaborate.

When I’m not pulling together all the moving pieces for my next project, you can find me dragging my family into new adventures. Those might include hiking a mountain pass, finding a steam engine train to ride or training my German Shepherd to become a sniffer dog.

Now you know a little more about my story. What story can I help you tell?
