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.

Majoring in Photojournalism was a no-brainer. My first photography class was as a Junior at San Francisco State University where my journey into professional photography 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. I became a newspaper photojournalist where the second validation came, this time 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! 

From the beginning of my career I specialized in photographing children and families as well as photographing over 200 weddings. Retiring from weddings left a gap needing to be filled so I dove head-on into capturing newborns and immediatey fell in love with those dreamy little angels and their adoring parents. Around this time I discovered that I also enjoyed the precision required to photograph professional headshots for children and adults. 

The first decade I was primarily a black and white film photographer which provided an excellent foundation for what I like to call "shooting with intention." 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.

Integrity has always been important to me so I try to be kind, honest, and ethical in everything I do. Through passion 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!
