Hello + Welcome!
Boy mama x2.
Lover of books, the mountains, and a good pair of fuzzy socks.
I have dreams of homesteading with my family (or even just having a successful garden with an abundance of homegrown food).
Outside of photography, I am always finding other creative hobbies, and a weekly hike with my boys in tow is a must.
That covers the important stuff, yeah?
I am a professional photographer in Northern CA, and I specialize in portraits + lifestyle - capturing individuals, families, and brands in their most natural state. My goal with each session is not to capture the posed picture with everyone smiling perfectly at the camera - rather, the in-between moments that often are overlooked (although, that's not to say we won't try for that pretty smiling picture too!). The sweet looks between mom and dad, that sleepy newborn yawn, the passion in the eyes of a small business owner. I create art that tells a story and gives the viewer a feeling.
I aim to provide a fun, comfortable environment for you in front of the camera, because let's be real - it can be intimidating and uncomfortable!
I love hearing new ideas and having fun, so tell me your vision and let's bring it to life.
SOMEONE ONCE ASKED ME WHAT MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY WAS - AND MY ANSWER WAS THIS:
The meaningful relationships created, watching families grow, a senior's excitement as they enter adulthood, mothers admiring their newborn baby, having the honor of being a part of important milestones and events, celebrating birthdays, elevating other small business owners and watching them thrive...aside from raising my boys, photography is my passion.
