Jute: Where are you originally from?

KM: I am originally from Hillsboro, Oregon.

J:What got you started in the photography field?

KM:I fell in love with photography for the first time when I visited a studio in California; I got to watch the process of a photoshoot and loved everything about it, especially the lighting aspect!

J: Why fashion?
KM: After trying many different styles of photography I naturally gravitated more towards the edgy look and feel of images and fashion just seemed to really fit the style that I loved. I started into it simply by dreaming up some crazy shoots I wanted to try and then by trial and error improved each shoot after that and learned how to incorporate different fashion elements into the images.

J: Do you have any work that you are particularly proud of? 
KM: I am pretty hard on myself when it comes to my work so I must say I only have about a month window where I actually love my work until I have moved onto something else or figured out something I should have done better. That is all a part of the creative process right? I am currently obsessing over my “Precious Metal” editorial which was just recently published in Ellements Magazine’s December issue.

J: What inspires you? 
KM: In general I think the challenge of trying something different every time I shoot is really what keeps me inspired and keeps my mind engaged when I am working. I love the creative process and getting to create things I have never seen done the same way before. Specifically I am really inspired by movement and different ways of casting light to best flatter a garment.

J: If you could shoot anyone, anywhere, wearing anything, what would that look like?
KM: I’m embarrassed to admit this but right now I would love to shoot Miley Cyrus in some super couture flowy gowns in a castle in Europe..(Is that weird?)
