About Me

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” – Ansel Adams

Photographer / Designer

Hillary Deskins

Hello! I am originally from Oregon, and currently live in Humboldt County, CA, where my husband Derek and I have been established for the past nine years. We have two wonderful children, Gwenneth and Bryant, who are my joy and inspiration, and we also have a giant cat named Toast. In 2007, I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.A. in Literature, and proceeded to earn a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Humboldt State University. After completing school I worked as an Art Curator here in Humboldt for four years. As an Art Curator, I enjoyed working directly with many local artists and establishments in the community, while caring for and overseeing many different pieces for art shows.

Creative expression has always played an important role in my life, and has influenced me immensely. Photography is perhaps the most rewarding form of art that I’ve ever known! My objective in every photo session is to capture the unique beauty that celebrates you! I am very committed to tailoring each session for the particular client(s) that I am photographing. Weather you are looking for an elegant, edgy, classic, or laid-back feel to your images… we will make it happen.

To me, photography is a way of not only freezing beautiful moments in time, but also a way of capturing the unique essence of an individual and/or a family, and honoring that essence through images. It sparks great joy in my heart to create and record amazing portraits of you and your family, and I am grateful to every client who believes in my art. Lets have some fun!

I hope to see you soon!
