As a mother of two, I find my children are my constant inspiration. My husband has consistently supported my love and passion for photography since he bought me my first camera in 2010, as a parting gift from serving in the U.S. Air Force. Since then, I have self-taught, attended workshops, and received extensive learning for my craft and skills in photography. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography from California State University, Northridge.
Embracing dreamy, airy, and whimsical sensibility is my style. I use digital capture in locations using natural light. I am most drawn to capturing children with their candid and raw emotions. I am more of an "in the moment" kind of photographer. It means more to me to get those moments that make a family who they are and let their individual personality shine through. Whatever that moment is for you, I would love to document it and tell your story the way I see it. Let's talk! Book your session with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
