  • Hello there…

    Thanks for stopping by! I started my business in 2007 shortly after the birth of my daughter, it felt like time was slipping away like a thief in the night. There were so many moments I wanted to hold on to. For me, photography isn't about a staged moment with manufactured, on cue smiles. It's about freezing time to capture a feeling in a fleeting moment. I've found that behind my camera I could see life unfolding and it seemed magical. And I Ioved it. My camera is a conduit of my quest for beauty and connections that I want to preserve. Years from now I want to remember how I felt, provoking emotions and memories that have long past... and I think you will too. I pour my heart and soul into each session. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and I would be honored to tell yours. This is my art and passion, I can't imagine doing anything else. I'm inspired by films, music, and fashion. Amy Poehler is my alter ego. Life is weird, unpredictable, adventurous, sentimental, and so much fun! It's quite a ride... let's go somewhere.

    I encourage all potential clients to shop around. Compare photographer portfolios. There are a ton of photographers out there- one for every budget. See what you like... and what you don't. Photography isn't a brand, it's about finding someone that connects with you... a shared vision and style. Anyone can take a picture, especially with technology today. Not everyone can tell a story.

    Here I share personal projects, client work, amongst other things that inspire me. I try to blog at least once a week. So come back soon!

    Technical details: I am a film and digital photographer incorporating video in all of my sessions. I want you to truly have the finest experience and the greatest memories. Film creates a look that cannot be digitally replicated, digital is perfect for immediate gratification, and video tells a story of its own. I attend several workshops throughout the year all across the country with the industry's top photographers from around the world because I truly believe there is always more to learn, especially in this ever-changing industry... this keeps me inspired and humbled, while giving you the very best.

^^ Press play ^^ for full experience.

This is a love story about a bride and a groom

They didn’t have much

But their love

And a baby, soon. //

They have been through war,

And are both better for it,

These are the skills that

grow you more. //

Their “big” day wasn’t about fancy things.

No big church

Or a phat diamond ring.

Just a simple dress,

And a crown fit for a princess //

That’s all you need

Forget the rest,

It’s not worth the debt. //

It was small, intimate, and quite celebratory,

Family and friends to share in their

blessed… love… story.

We shot a little Super 8 video:

California // Part I

We spent a glorious week in sunny California. It’s never long enough… but I’ll take what I can get. For now.
I am so stinkin’ in love with my family. For better, for worse.

I also made a little video…

Ordinarily, I would change the cover to an enticing shot to make you want to watch the video… but this capture of Chase is just tooooo good to pass up. Looking super thrilled to hike Torrey Pines!  Check back soon for Part II.
