quick facts about me
I am a San Diego native who is not only a passionate photographer, wife, and Mom. I am also a foodie, beach goer, plant lover, coffee drinker who loves to cook and go to the gym! I'm married to the love of my life ( we met at the gym ) and my kids have been my inspiration since day one! Not a day goes by that their picture isn’t taken!
My style is free and natural, and I'll do pretty much anything to get a smile! I feel one of my strengths is my ability to make each session fun and enjoyable so I am able to capture the best photos possible. My goal is to get to know my clients so they’re comfortable and I can turn carefree moments into artistic photographs that last forever.
While studying journalism at SDSU I began working for The Daily Aztec as a staff photographer and that's when my passion really took off. I enjoyed the journalistic side of photography and knew photography was my calling. I began working for magazines and newspapers on features and articles but after graduating and having my son my photography made a turn in a new direction. I began taking on more family sessions and weddings and finally realized this was where I belong. I love the fact that I am able to watch my clients go from wedding day to baby bump to yearly family holiday portraits. I love capturing memories for families to keep for a lifetime and knowing that I was able to recreate photos they've always envisioned hanging on their wall.
On your wedding day I will be your number one cheerleader- your bonus bridesmaid! I've seen countless couples say I DO and I love every second of making your wedding day dreams come true. In reality you spend A LOT of time with your photographer on your wedding day- getting ready, hours of portraits and of course during the reception! I strive to make my couples as comfortable as possible so they can not only enjoy their wedding day but look back on images that really reflect how genuinely happy and in love they truly are!
