In this dang age, it’s more important than ever that we find ways to show up for humanity. For me, that would be making true connections with people and it’s one of the most rewarding things about what I do with my families. 

Of course, I couldn’t have been more happy about capturing this family as they spend their final days in SF as a family of three, in their favorite park, and, nevertheless, in Grandma’s hand knit sweater. These are moments that I’m grateful to document and I’m looking forward to welcoming them to the East Bay and meeting their new addition. 

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.
