HI there! I am so honored and excited to be here! So a little about me and who I am as a photographer. Originally from Southern California. I am married to the love of my life and high school sweetheart who has blessed our family with the opportunity for me to be a stay at home mommy to the silliest little boys you will ever see. They are 4 and 2 and they are the true driving passion behind my photography. I quickly realized after they were born how quickly the little moments happened and were gone. Photography gave me a way to freeze little snippets of time and cherish them forever.
I am a natural light lover and I am sure like most photographers, I am OBSESSED with golden hour. I love the way the light just kisses the ground ever so softly and just adds a glow to everything in its path. My boys and I love to "chase the sunset", when one of us notices how gorgeous the sky is looking, we drive to our special spot and catch the glorious rays melting over the fields and farms. I just adore this time together.
This is probably one of the reasons why one of my all time favorite shoots was a maternity shoot right at sunset. The combination of glorious light and excited parents just melted me. These two sweet love birds were expecting a baby boy in the early summer and we met up at a local wildlife refuge and had the best time! For an hour and a half we captured the sweetest looks, and the feelings between these two and their excitement was infectious.
This is part of why I am so passionate about photography, it evokes emotion and changes you. I primarily aim to be more a "lifestyle" photographer. I love to catch life as it is happening. Sounds a bit backwards I am sure, when you consider that we are talking about a photography shoot, but my favorite shots are almost always the in between moments-the giggles and whispers, the hugs and the cuddles.
I am not sure if there is a way to pin point my favorite type of shoot as each one holds a unique quality- from maternity to weddings I have to pinch myself when I realize this is real life and I get the honor of freezing moments in time for my clients- who quickly become friends- to FOREVER CHERISH.
