What other career allows a person to participate in the best parts of life? Headshots for a new job, the birth of a new baby, family events, and other expressions of love such as engagements, and weddings. Not only do I adore the creativity of photography, I'm honored to be part of such beautiful moments!!
I believe in the power of a strong image. In families, photographs are legacies of moments that will never come again – I stop time so you can cherish it for a lifetime and pass that on to the next generation. For business, photographs support your bottom line.
I started out doing photography favors for friends (weddings, headshots, etc.) and, by word of mouth, people started asking to hire me, so this has became an enjoyable business that I am passionate about. I focus on portraits, weddings, and lifestyle shoots for personal and small business needs. I love creating images, so I hope you'll get in touch.
In 2002, I studied film photography in my second year at the Academy of Art in San Francisco on a scholarship with some of the best commercial photographers in the industry, but then life took me down another path and I built a career in the digital marketing industry. For over a decade I lead marketing initiatives and held various roles in business development and agency account management, but I returned to my true passion of photography in 2013. I enjoy participating in continuing education through online courses and as a member of WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photography International) where I continue to develop my talent and skill as a photographer.
My life and career experiences help me to understand your needs – we’ll start with a conversation to understand your goals for the photographs, and then work through a plan to bring our collaborative vision to life.
I’ve had so many people tell me “I look horrible in photographs,” but I've shown them otherwise. I love a challenge, and I enjoy showing people what I see – the best version of you! I'd be thrilled to create a portrait for you or join you on your wedding adventure.
When I’m not creating photos, you’ll find me working on our start-up flower farm, Sixteen Acres, where I try to keep up with documenting our learning to share with others. I enjoy design, art, vintage, keeping up with technology trends, Champagne with my friends, and enjoying my life with my sweet dog Molly and my charming husband, and sometimes assistant, Martin. I hope you'll join our network of friends and get in contact today!
