I purchased my first camera at the age of 18 to use as an exchange student in Europe.  During that time, I shot 30 rolls of film, sent them back home, and from the moment of seeing the exposed images, was hooked.  I have spent over half my life as a photographer.  

I am the mother of three boys and with them I love to camp on the beach in California, go on adventures and photograph their exxperiences.

My favorite age to photograph is two- three year olds.  No joke.

Photography is one of my true loves.  I adore the opportunity and versatility of being able to tell stories from the most important days of another's life as well as photographing the beauty of the everday.  The variety in the stories that I have been fortunate enough to tell constantly renews my love of the art.  

I love seeing people, in front of my lens, laugh with abandon, cry as they watch the love of their life walk down the aisle, tenderly kiss the head of their child, get lost in a moment during portraits.  

My job is to show you how beautiful your life is and my hope is you treasure these images for a lifetime.

I want to hear more about you so please reach out to discuss what you have in mind.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
