Hi there and welcome! This blog is a place that I post some of my favorite stories & moments captured from recent sessions, as well as a place for news and specials, along with some of my life as a mama & wife from time to time.
Here are snippets of my family life over at instagram:
Thanks for stopping by!

This is my sister. She just celebrated her 17th birthday! SEVENTEEN! Before she was born, I had completed my community college course work at Santa Monica College (where I studied film photography and art history) and was set to transfer to UC Berkeley. But when she was born, I decided I couldn't miss out on this little girl's first year and so I deferred my enrollment. Except you can't defer enrollment at UC Berkeley. Anyway, long story short I ended up staying in Los Angeles for another year (and took on more film photography coursework for fun) and had some of my fondest memories swimming with this golden child (a nickname our neighbors gave her) and teaching her a few cute things.
In 1997, I applied to go to UC Santa Cruz this time around and got accepted, because.. I don't know, probably had something to do with a crush of mine at the time. Who knows, I was 19 at the time and wasn't really thinking...but hey, if I hadn't gone to UC Santa Cruz - I probably wouldn't be where I am at today - which is living in the bay area..oh wait, but UC Berkeley is in the bay area...well whatever, you get what I am talking about right?? right?! Anyway, the people I met at Santa Cruz were by far the most influential people I know - because they influenced me to be under the influence (womp womp.., hey I told you I tell corny jokes!)..Of course I made some mistakes - some major and some minor but all in all...it was a great time and do regret much...
I have been meaning to post some of my recent photography work from our trips in 2013 but have been so busy either shooting a wedding, a family portrait session or a birth story that I quickly was unable to post anything...So for the next few weeks prepare to travel back in time and see some personal photography from my own family life!!

I wanted to thank you all for helping me to live my dream. To be a mother, a wife, an artist, a friend. Thank you to all the families, couples and friends who have supported me and chosen me to document some of their most epic days - whether it was just the everyday magic of your family or the start of a new one..
Much love from my family to yours..
Have a wonderful, awesome and epic Thanksgiving day.
