Hi, I’m Isabelle.
In college they told us not to combine our design and photography portfolios – stating that they were unrelated. After years of working alongside other creatives, I believe the two practices to be intrinsically linked. I am a good photographer because I have studied design. I am a better designer due to my love of photography.
My time spent working with small businesses has taught me that, more often than not, both practices are needed to be effective in any marketing efforts.
I love all things photography. I got my first camera as a birthday present in 6th grade, and I haven’t gone anywhere without a camera since. I got a Polaroid camera from a yard sale in high school (back when only the Impossible Project made film!) and fell in love with film. Eventually I started amassing a frankly gigantic collection of vintage 35mm SLRs.
I have upgraded somewhat to a Canon DSLR, but I still love my 35mm and love sending film off to be developed. I have created custom presets for other photographers and love creating the perfect vibe to my photos, whether it’s light & airy, or a moody PNW feel.
I studied Graphic Design at WWU, graduating with my BA in 2017. I worked as a graphic designer both freelance, and for several companies – large and small. After a while I pivoted my career towards marketing, where I used my foundations in graphic design to approach marketing from a visual angle. Always aiming to create beautiful, cohesive campaigns with strong visuals.
