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!
+ Coffee dates with my bestie, Amanda.
+ Morning walks with my furbaby, Jet, listening to podcasts.
+ Chips & queso on a friday afternoon with a cold margarita.
+ Game nights with my husband, Jonathan, where I almost always win.
+ Spending weekends at my family's lakehouse at Lake Texoma.
+ Photographing amazing couples who are so in love and ready to take on life together!
