I have always loved photography and have always had a camera in my hand, documenting my own family and friends over the years.

It is my dream job, getting to get to do that for your family. I feel so lucky that I get to do this every day. I know how quickly those years pass. Our own son is grown and on his own. I love looking at the wonderful memories we have of  him growing up. You think you couldn’t possibly forget all those stages of growth they go through. But we do forget, if we don’t have beautiful images of them to help us remember.

I have been photographing newborns and their families for the past 10 years in my home studio located in Santa Ana, Ca. I love getting those maternity images of the parents, capturing that excitement of the growing family, then getting those precious images of the newborn when they finally arrive. Those tiny features will never be that small again! It’s so fun to see the babies come in for their milestone portraits of when they are sitting up and celebrating their first birthday in style with their own cake to smash!

Some fun facts about me are: I was born and raised right here in Orange County. My husband and I lived on Kauai for a year in a haunted hotel! You’ll have to schedule a session to get more information about that! The loves of my life are my husband, Bill, our grown son, David, and our Australian Shepherd, Sunshine.
I love coffee in every form, from hot to iced, or made into ice cream!

Your family is amazing and we want to help you celebrate it, remember it, honor it and record your legacy with beautiful professional portraits. 
Images of your family in your home will bring to life the love you share. 
David Krauss, licensed psychologist and author of “Photo Therapy and Mental Health”, says it is important to have images of your family on the walls of your home. It shows a family, as a family united; it is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit. It lets children see where they fit. It gives a sense of, "this is where I belong and this is where I come from." It helps confirm that they are loved and well cared for.


For over 10 years we have been photographing families and creating beautiful artwork for their homes. We would be honored to do that for yours. 

We not only capture wonderful images of your family; we help you coordinate them with your home and it's decor.
The art in your home will be filled wonderful memories of your family. 
An investment so worth it, you'll wonder how you lived without it.

Our son David. Our only child. We struggled with infertility for three years before we were blessed with David. I love being his mom. I'm so lucky he still likes to hang out with me. In fact we both went to The School of Photography together at Orange Coast College. He's a very good photographer. But he prefers to spend his artist talent being a sculptor. 
He loves making sculptures of people and he's really good at it.
He has a great sense of humor and is always making us laugh!

My husband Bill and I met when I was 16 years old. We didn't start dating until I was 19. Our first date was to our church that we still attend today. The best thing about meeting the love of your life at such a young age, is that he stills see me as that kid!
He's my  biggest supporter and encourager of my business and my photography. Bill is a great photographer himself, who understands all the technical stuff way more than I do! This is  wonderful when I need help with photography problems as they come along! 
Bill is holding our Australian Shepherd, Sunshine. Sunshine is 14 years old this year, and is the best dog ever! I began my photography education 14 years ago when she was a puppy. I made the cutest calendar of her back then! 

My Family

We have another 25 kids: Bill & I have had the privilege of hosting kids from all over the world! We are still in touch with most of them. We communicate through We Chat, What's App and Line. Our extra kids are from China, Japan, Spain, and  Brazil. I've always dreamed of traveling but haven't really had the opportunity, so it's great to have the world come to us in the form of kids!
