About Me


There are few things more worthwhile than the gift of being fully seen.

Hey friend,


What’s your story? We all have one, and stories are meant to be shared. No one knows about the script that was never made into a movie.

I’m guessing that, since you’re on my site, you’re probably wondering if your story is worth being told, if it’s “good enough” or “exciting enough.”

Let me tell you a secret: the answer is YES. Your story is just waiting to be told. What are you waiting for?

My story started as a little Amish boy in nowhere Montana, and now has led me to the-part-of-California-no-one-knows-about (Redding, if you’re curious).

I love West Coast Swing dancing, hiking, the ocean, a good book, a good movie, and a great cup of coffee (I’ll take a capp, please!).

I love photography because I get to see people for who they really are, and mirror that reality back to them in a way that allows them to connect with and love themselves in an incredibly freeing way.

So tell me, what's your story? Let's connect.

I'm Japheth, and I'm in love with life! I love telling stories, encouraging others, and making people smile.

This is my crazy family (click to see a bigger photo)! I'm the oldest of 5 - 4 younger brothers, 1 younger sister. The youngest is 17 years younger than me!
