Hi friend! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Lindsey, an adventure lifestyle photographer born and raised in Washington State. I'm also a sailor, a skier, backpacker, rock climber, and trained mountaineer. My journey to creative purpose began as a kid raised in the world of camping, hiking and horsemanship. Nights spent under a canopy of stars in an open field, long easy rides at sunrise and hikes to the hidden lakes of the Cascade Mountains laid the foundation for an enduring connection to the beauty of nature. After earning a degree in Communications from Santa Clara University, I began a corporate career in storytelling that took me from Seattle to Norway where my appreciation of the natural environment was celebrated as a cultural norm. 

I traveled from the towering peaks of the Norwegian fjords to the bustling markets of Istanbul, discovering an abundance of beautiful images to capture. This passion has grown into my life’s work, telling visual stories and creating enduring images for my clients. I specialize in adventure elopement weddings, couples adventure sessions, outdoor family portraits, branding photography, and special events photography. I've shot for outdoor and travel centric brands like REI, La Sportiva, Eddie Bauer, Clipper Vacations, Darn Tough Vermont, Deuter, LOGE Camps, Hipcamp, Airbnb and many others.

MEET Your photography guide

I'm a little different from most other photographers. For my clients, an outdoor experience is as much about appreciating the beauty of nature as it is about caring for the earth. For me, photography sessions aren't JUST about epic photos. Photography is a way to exercise stewardship for public lands. I'm passionate about protecting the gifts of the natural world. This is why I'm a founding member of "Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography." I'm committed to minimizing human impact on public lands and wild places through Leave No Trace Principles. I'm also one of the official photographer for Washington's National Parks Fund, the non-profit responsible for stewardship and fundraising on behalf of Mount Rainier National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Olympic National Park. 

Conscious Adventure
Photography

What does this mean for you? I have intimate and in depth knowledge and connection to Washington's most cherished wild places. My clients come to me wanting more than drool worthy Instagram photos. They don't come to exploit nature through their session, but rather honor it. I am committed to empowering my clients with knowledge on how to care for the earth while we enjoy nature's playground. If you're looking for a photographer willing to trample delicate alpine meadows or fragile environments to get you the most epic outdoor photo imaginable, I won't be for you. If you want to get creative in capturing your connection to the great outdoors with a photographer who has a unique respect and appreciation for the subtle, delicate beauty of sensitive ecosystems, I'm the perfect fit. I want to capture the synergy between you and the environment, not your dominance over it.
