hey there! I’m Saleina.

Photographer // Wanderer // Guide to stress free photos

I'm here to help.

The number one thing I hear from clients is “We’re awkward in front of the camera!” I get it, you’ve never done this before. Lucky for you, I’ve been putting couples and families at ease and making sure they look great for over a decade. I’ll have you feeling so good by the end of the session you’ll be questioning if you missed your calling as a model. Scouts honor.


Whether it’s planning an epic elopement, wedding day or family session, I’ve got your back. I’ll guide you through the process of location selection, what to wear, timelines and so much more. I’m here to make your photo experience fun and enjoyable. Just say no to photo shoot stress.


What’s my photography style you ask?! You. Your connection with your partner. Your love for your family. That’s my style. I seamlessly move from portrait photography to a photo journalistic approach throughout your session or day. But my number one goal is to tell your story as authentically as possible.

Get to know Me

Born and raised in the PNW, I am a die hard fan of foggy mornings and listening to rain.


I married the love of my life in 2003, we have two kids, one fluffy cat and an oversized lap dog. We're all about them Seattle sports, just don't ask us about the Sonics or Russell Wilson ... grr.


This business was born out of my love of capturing life's little moments and big emotions.

Keeping it real

01 - Coffee, coffee, coffee.

02 - Mountains always – hike, run, climb, repeat.

03 - In another life, I’d be a naturopath or an interior designer.

04 - The longer the trail the better. Tents over hotels, except the Four Seasons.

05 - Frosting is my kryptonite. Can I get a side of frosting with that cupcake?

06 - I challenge anyone to a fitted sheet folding contest. Prepare to lose.
