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.

About Me

Real life is more than pretty pictures.
The beauty is in the journey, and it's absolutely
worth documenting all of it. 

I’m captivated by people and always have been; my B.S. is in anthropology. Early on, I appointed myself the family documentarian, carefully recording milestones and travels and learning along the way how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first professional camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and full of changes. A photographer friend’s encouragement soon led me to make photography my career. Today, after many years and proud accomplishments, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
