The mission of Soulumination is very close to my heart, our daughter was born with a severe heart defect and had multiple surgeries within five days. My brother in law came to the hospital to take some pictures.  I said no, I wanted her to be home and not have hospital pictures.  He was sweetly persistent and took several shots that day, she fought for her survival for 11 days and I am forever grateful that we have these pictures.  I am honored to work in these precious moments, fully aware of the lasting impact these photos will bring to each family.
I live in Tacoma with my husband and two beautiful kids and spend time running, playing tennis, gardening and volunteering.
