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.) TMI!

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 build, to design, and to collaborate. I love to learn and connect with the people I am photographing.

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 crazy rescue German Shepherd.

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