I’m a wife of one, momma of two and crazy lover of sunsets. Seriously, I don’t even schedule sessions anytime but sunset—well, or sunrise, but for some reason people hardly every take me up on that 6am meeting time. ;-)
Random fact: I actually started this photography journey without ever intending to. I had a mom blog. Not the latest trends and food kind, but words of encouragement to other mommas in the trenches of life with littles. After a couple of my writings went “viral” on social media I decided I wanted better photos of my kids to go with the words, and so I learned the in and outs of my little camera and shot them day and night like a mad woman. *Sorry kids!
Shortly after we moved to Southern California and on some crazy whim I decided I would start photographing families. I slept little and studied everything I could get my hands on. But although I have spent the hours teaching myself the technicals, I never chose photography for fancy crops or angles. I chose it because of that Mom blog. That driving passion to show families how beautiful their life really is. Because every family deserves to have their story seen.
I am a hard believer in capturing what the moment “looked” like with they eye—hello iphones, but rather how it felt with your heart. Color and light are the main ways I do this, creating not simply a snapshot but rather a true feeling of your love and joy together. I want these photos to be more than a document that you lived, but rather that you loved and celebrated in all of the most beautiful ways.
