ABOUT ME

WHAT TO EXPECT
I enjoy catching the moment. Whether it be running around the event venue, beach, park, or home I plan to capture your special moments.

Most people are nervous when they have to get their photo taken…heck I even feel that way in front of the camera. I’m waiting for someone to direct me and make me feel comfortable.

I know my job is to make you look good, feel good, and walk away with pretty awesome images. I want your photo session to be a positive experience from the very beginning to the end delivery.

MY STYLE
I really love the "in-between" un-posed photos. At the same time I must say I also love dramatic moments that can tell a story with a simple image. I try and stay away from over filtered images, and instead like to go for rich colors and fresh images.

WHERE I TAKE YOUR PHOTOS
I am an on location photographer. I currently do not have a studio so I travel to you! Let me know when is best for you and I'll be there.

LIGHTING
I use natural light but I'm also am not afraid to break out my flash or off camera lighting to make sure a moment really pops. No one wants their images to all be grainy.


WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I really love working with families. Whether it be from engagement, to family and children, I get a kick out of making special memories for people to have for a lifetime.

I have a full time corporate job as a graphic designer and this is my personal side business - my passion. I do this because it's what makes me happy. That's why I do what I do, I really enjoy photography it is a part of what makes me happy.

ME ON A PERSONAL LEVEL
I live in San Diego with my family of six. Our family consists of... me + my husband + our 2 daughters + our 2 German Shepherds. That = just the right amount of chaos.

My love for art began when I won a coloring contest when I was six years old. From there I was hooked! I went on and attended college at the Art Institute of California, San Diego where I earned a degree in Graphic Design.

While I took photo classes in college I have continued my education through conferences and workshops in photography. I can't get enough of learning the whole photo process.


THE WRAP UP
All these things combined make me really pumped about getting out there with you and snapping away! I want to leave your family with lasting memories that you can reminisce about years from now and smile.

I would love the opportunity to talk with you about creating some legendary moments with any of your photo, video or design needs.
