Hi! I'm Dakota.
I'm a photographer, dance instructor, and makeup artist based
in Seattle, WA and here's my story:
After realizing I didn't actually want to go to med school (sorry, mom and dad!), I halted my grad school apps and accepted a serendipitous scholarship to a professional makeup artistry program in Vancouver, BC. After learning all I could about beauty and prosthetic makeup, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my craft.
I worked in film, fashion, and live events and had an AMAZING time but it was in LA that I discovered that I liked taking photos even better than doing makeup! Much like dance, makeup was only remembered if someone was there to capture it. I wanted to create things that would live forever.
This realization inspired me to move back home to build a business that uses all the things I love most to craft meaningful pieces of art that
will last for generations.
The first step towards an amazing session is making sure that
you love your photographer.
Let's make sure we're a good fit!

Do you want a cookie cutter experience?
I didn't think so!
