I am a mom of two beautiful children (and a couple cats) that my husband and I are raising in Livermore, CA. I work a full time job as a director in fin tech and photography is my creative outlet that I enjoy taking on whenever I can. I enjoy gardening, taking long walks and listening to podcasts, nerding out with spreadsheets, doing art with my kids and drinking coffee (good coffee - definitely a coffee snob over here). I've been a resident of Livermore, CA now for over 4 years and I am loving the community surrounding me and the people that live in and around here. Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 16 years old and I absolutely love having the opportunity to meet new people and capture some beautiful images of them for their home, holiday cards, professional lives or whatever suits them! I'd love to get to know you, so please reach out!
Documentary-style photography is a balance between formal photography (most photos posed) and photojournalism (nothing is posed) - documentary style involves "setting the scene" for good images without over-directing. This ensures that you are in good locations with good lighting and that you look your best, while still feeling completely natural. My main source of light is the sun and my choice of backdrop is nature. As an award winning photographer, I take much pride and care in each and every snap of my camera. All sessions are not treated equally. Whether you would like individual portraits, family pictures, or maternity and newborn photos, I will personally capture your story with the uniqueness it deserves. Your moments are precious and should be treasured for a lifetime
