She was J. C. Ainsworth’s daughter. She joined the Oregon Camera Club on November 14, 1899. She was an associate member, which meant that she did not use the club darkroom. In 1900, she was on the OCC’s Exhibition Committee. By 1904 she was regularly exhibiting pictorialist photographs. She resigned from the OCC in late 1905. Two of her views were published in the August 1906 issue of Pacific Monthly, one of Lyle Point on the Columbia River and another of Ecola on the Pacific Coast. About 1924 she moved to Santa Barbara, California, where she died in 1962.
