    My Story

    The first spark of interest in photography started, oddly enough, with flamingos. When I was seventeen I watched a PBS special which showed a photographer filming hundreds of these exotic birds from a helicopter as they flew away. It was captivating, and I remember thinking that being a photographer was the best job on the planet.

    My first photography class was as a Junior at San Francisco State University where my journey began. A few weeks into the class the professor pulled me aside and said I was a natural. That was all the validation I needed to continue. When I became a newspaper photojournalist, I received a second validation from the photo editor who commented that I had a gift for photographing children. When my first child was born, I decided to leave the newspaper to open my own photo studio and have never looked back! 

    The first decade I was primarily a black and white film photographer. This experience provided an excellent foundation for what I call "shooting with intention," which means to create an image before pressing the shutter. After switching to digital many years ago, I became passionate about colors and the unharnessed creativity that comes with shooting without the constraints of film.

    With hard work and dedication I have built my business from the ground up. It has provided me with the unique opportunity to explore new areas of my craft, to grow as a person, as well as a platform to work with hundreds of wonderful clients who appreciate my fun, modern, and timeless style of photography. 

    I love my job and clients can feel it!
