NICE TO MEET YOU
JOYFUL. ORGANIC. VIBRANT.
Photography for Shiny, Happy People.
Creating the Story of You.
I am a mama to one, a wife to an educator/ocean lifeguard, and a visual artist.
I am living my best life as a portrait + lifestyle photographer specializing in capturing the forever moments of families, littles, motherhood, seniors, personal branding + milestone events.
With a little bit of humor and a lot of grace, I strive to capture all the real and simple moments in life, filled with lots of laughter, good vibes and much love. I view my work as a collaboration, working together to capture moments that help create your life's story.
I look forward to chatting with you so that we can create something awesome, with a side of shenanigans and a whole lot of adventure. XO
The Story of Me
Not native to Southern California, I was raised in Long Island, New York.
Photography wasn't my first love for art, it was painting - watercolor specifically.
I opened my first photography studio in 2000, while still in college.
When my son was born, I officially 'retired' from wedding photography.
I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in film photography.
In 2008, I married my best friend, whom I had met on eHarmony in 2005.
I am a sucker for inspirational quotes and motherhood humor.
I believe sarcasm and high-fives are truly a work of art, only perfected after years of practice.
I am a hugger and high-fiver, and have been known to cry during yoga (sometimes).
I truly believe that love and kindness make the world go round.
I am incredibly passionate, humbled and grateful for being able to do what I do.
“I am an artist, my hair is rarely tamed
& sometimes I sleep till noon,
My house is messy and I speak to the moon.
I care less about the materials that I share
with my world and more about the passion inside myself.
I'm an artist, what more can you expect?
i am full of soul, love and all the rest.”
