I’m a little quirky, a little silly, and love what I do. I love people, and documenting their moments in life! I will use my overflowing passion for the art of photography to personalize your photo session, unique to you. I’m based in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Ojai, Malibu but travel almost anywhere to capture my passion.
I live for emotion, the laughs, grins and the silent romance. Give me those long flowing dresses, the loose hair blowing in the wind and tons of feeling. I love shooting in vast beautiful spaces but also enjoy the intimate locations…even in-home sessions are inspiring! Raw emotion, vibrant colors and gorgeous vintage black and white is my thing!
I love hot sauce, all kinds, coffee, chocolate and the occasional red wine. Most of all I love my two little girls and my gorgeous husband. You will usually find me playing barbies, jumping on the tramp with them or driving them around to find new and amazing shooting locations. They make me who I am and yes, I love my job. I am an animal advocate, especially of the ocean, so please don’t ask me to photograph you at Seaworld! I love to travel and have been blessed to see many countries, but I still have tons of wanderlust in my future. So if you want me to travel to Iceland or Europe, just ask!
I graduated from California Polytechnic State University in Landscape Architecture with certain honors and came out a photographer, who knew!
I will tell it to you straight; I didn’t get much of a poker face, so you can pretty much read my mind by my expression. I am fun-loving, I’ll be a little silly and may ask you to do some uncomfortable things for a great reaction moment. Uh…hum, you can thank me later 😉
If you want just a traditional posed photographer, you may want to search elsewhere, I’m not for everyone. Of course I will grab the Family/Bridal Party photos with ya’ll looking at me, beautifully, but I might make you get a little extra close…keep those breath mints on you! I’m going for emotion, unforced fun memories and lots of laughs.
Above all, I am here to uncover your story. To connect with you and document where you are in this big world at this moment in time, and to celebrate being alive. I follow my heart and want to understand yours in order to help bring out that feeling. If you have a little edge, adventurous, willing to give a little vulnerability and don’t mind me having some creative freedom, then I’m all for you!
Thank you for visiting and I’m looking forward to meeting or chatting with you!
