I live in Sonoma County with my family. I photograph people for a living, here in wine country, throughout the Bay Area, all along the West Coast and beyond.
I met my husband, Devon, in high school. We fell in love after being pen pals and making each other mix tapes, and have grown up to have an awesome daughter, Symphony.
We love living where we do, and getting to raise our girl to be a 7th generation Northern Californian.
I photograph portraits, weddings and companies as well as stock, assignments for publications, architecture and interiors, and more.
I bring a respectful, loving and slightly silly approach to each photo assignment, capturing each subject’s essence, and creating unique, vibrant, and naturally beautiful images.
The best photos happen when everyone feels comfortable, at ease, and respected, so I work to create a joyful, gracious environment at every single shoot. You'll love the experience of being photographed as well as the end result.
(I am my own worst subject)
I believe that capturing a perfect, fleeting micro-expression is as important as choosing the perfect wedding dress – that newborn portraits should include not just the bliss and smiles but the crying and blowouts – that we can find beautiful backdrops and light anywhere and everywhere.
I started learning photography (a million years ago) originally in an attempt to get a photo of myself that I liked. Now I thrive on working with even the most camera-shy people like me!
No matter how awkward you might feel in front of the camera, you'll never be as awkward as me in front of the camera…
