Thanks for stopping by.
I have always loved photographing people and their interactions with each other and their environment. My love affair with photography started way back in jr high, as I ran through tons and tons of rolls of film, learning by trial and error. Until one day I finally took a black and white film class in college and discovered the magic of a darkroom and learned the rules of photography, enough to know how to break them to create beautiful and unique images of you!
A session with me is full of laughs and sometimes adventure. I have been known to climb a fence, lay in a puddle and have a dog pee on my bag (true story) all in the pursuit of capturing you and your story in all its uncensored awesomeness.
I am based in San Jose, California, on a day to day basis I can be found all over the Bay Area as as far south as Carmel, CA photographing awesome families and their pets too! The farthest I have traveled for a portrait session to date is Maui, Hawaii! If you are far away don’t worry I do travel!
In my spare time I can be found photographing rescue dogs for Rocket Dog Rescue, in hopes of helping them find their forever home, crafting & hanging out with my husband and dog!
