    ABOUT

    MY PHILOSOPHY

    This is where I’m supposed to tell you I’ve had a passion for photography since I was born, that I use my camera to freeze time, that I want to create images you can pass down for generations, and lots of other clichés about memories and legacies and moments and heirlooms.

    The truth? One summer day I decided I wanted to try my hand at photography, and then I fell in love with it. My story is pretty ordinary. And I think you might feel that way about your story, too.

    But just because it's ordinary doesn't mean it's not magic.

    We've become blind to the power of our everyday lives. We look ahead to milestones, compare ourselves to strangers on the internet, and are constantly told that in order to be happy we need to have more, do more, be more.

    So I’m doing my best to put a fresh spin on yet another photography business. Because the more stories I tell with my camera, the more I realize I’m not driven by the desire to “capture memories you’ll cherish forever,” but to offer a new perspective on right now. To show you the beauty in simplicity. To create art that serves not just as a memory, but as a reminder. A reminder to stay inspired by the quiet, subtle, seemingly insignificant present.

    PHOTO MAKER. ADVENTURE TAKER. BOOTY SHAKER.

    Hi, I’m Asia, and if being an adult with a favorite dinosaur is wrong I don’t want to be right.

    (It’s the Brontosaurus, obviously.)

    I live in Olympia, Washington with my cute BFF (boy friend forever) Johnny and our adopted pup Tamale. When there’s not a camera in front of my face I’m usually on the hunt for a new hiking trail, yelling at the tv with an xbox controller in one hand and a beer in the other, or online shopping for trendy hats I’ll never wear. I like hanging out with people who make cool art and have big dreams, reading entire books in one sitting, and sitting around campfires until it’s tomorrow.

     I definitely travel for weddings & elopements. I definitely have a candy pocket in my camera bag. And I definitely love working with people who will stay out in the cold for a few more photos after the sun goes down.

    I believe in bottle openers on keychains, lifting others up, laughing ‘til I snort, creating my own happiness, keeping promises, and that real bravery is eating tacos in a white shirt.

    These are a few of my favorite things

    1. The kind of parties where I can bring my dog and not wear a dress
    2. Watching storms from the beach
    3. The pizza tracker at dominos.com
    4. Mornings that involve hiking boots, a thermos of coffee, and mountain trails
    5. Not being a mom
    6). Prince’s 3121 album
    7. Time travel romance novels
    8. Staying up too late playing video games
    9. Eating cookies that someone else made
    10. Working with people who don’t mind rain on their hair or mud on their boots

    Curious what working with me is like?
