My love for photography began when I was just 16 years old. With no training, teacher, and not even a decent camera, I began to focus on the way light touched things and people's expression. When I finally got my hands on a better camera, I was hooked. I would photograph anyone and everything I could. I indulged in film photography and fell even further in love with the process. Since then I have studied at schools both in New York and San Francisco and have had the honor of photographing so many families, weddings and events. I genuinely love what I do.

I have found that people are by far my favorite subject. I love photographing authentic moments and emotions. I love capturing the moments in-between, the ones that may have otherwise been missed. From years of wedding photography I have developed a signature lifestyle way of shooting, capturing true love and emotion in a candid and casual way. I use only natural light and let it guide the way when I am shooting. I and am inspired by film photography and even in my digital work I recreate the same tones and mood found with film. 

 

 After having my son and creating a family of my own, I have found a strong passion for family and newborn photography. Nothing is better than spending the day getting to know families and capturing the candid fun moments that show so much heart and personality. Rather than sticking to posed shots I encourage you to be yourselves, snuggle, play and I'll take care of the rest. Kids grow so fast and are constantly changing, I love capturing these fleeting moments, the tiny milestones you don't ever want to forget. I love being invited into a family's home or taken to their favorite place and capturing them just be themselves. 

Photography is who I am, how I communicate and I love sharing it with people. 

When I'm not taking pictures you can find me being a mama to my kiddos, Max and Luna. Most likely at the beach with our pup on a foggy day. I'm married to my best friend and high school sweetheart. I am just a little obsessed with coffee and Star Wars. I love animals and have also worked as a veterinary technician. I would eat donuts everyday if I could. I love where my life is right now and wouldn't change a thing.

Lets create something beautiful! 

hello, there
