About me

First, thank you for stopping by. I pour my heart and soul into my photography and when people view it, I feel like you are getting to know me on a very personal level! I also share photos of my daughters on here as well and I am happy to share everything that makes my heart beat.

I was born and raised in Southern California and recently moved to the Portland Metro Area to have a better life for our children. It was a tough move to make but, it was wonderful to move to a place that is better for our family. Plus, the beauty of the Pacific Northwest is inspiring me daily and filling my cup.

Photography for me combines two of my life’s passions: people and art. I am the kind of person who always has had artistic hobbies; in the past painting and jewelry-making have been my favorites. And my friends and family can attest to the fact that I love being with people, enjoying them and making them happy.

This is why I love photographing what is most important in people’s lives: pregnancies, births, babies, family. I am able to be a part of people’s special moments and produce for them a work of art in honor of these moments.

As a photographer, I strive to be true to people and events: to capture the essence of relationships, to bring people’s personalities and sense of humor into the pictures. You will see in my gallery I love to capture details: an adorable baby foot, a doting dad-to-be feeling his baby kick, a couple sharing a laugh together. I also try to find a unique point of view, using angles, perspective, poses, focus and light creatively – this is what elevates the photograph from a picture to art.

Photography is my passion. I am lucky to be able to do what I love, and to share this passion with all the amazing people I have worked with thus far. I hope that I can share this passion with you soon!
