Alameda Pride 2023

October 16, 2023


I had the honor last weekend of taking photos for Alameda’s second annual Pride in the Park. Their theme was “Love One Another,” which was a beautiful yet poignant reminder that we are all humans worthy of love. I’m so thankful for having this wonderful community to remind us that among the heaviness, there is still good in this world.


Gather strength from the beauty of your chaos.

I’ve always been fascinated by people; my B.S. is in anthropology. I appointed myself the family documentarian, taking photos of our travels and milestones. I soon realized how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first serious camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and ever-changing. Around that time, a photographer friend’s encouragement led me to pursue photography professionally. Now many years and some very proud accomplishments into this career, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
