I believe there is beauty and magic in the unconventional. I believe the way we each live our lives is enough. I believe people look their best in photos when they're not trying to look their best. I believe in authentic smiles. I am a parent who may not have all the answers, but I am certain that the days with our children are fleeting, and that the unprompted hugs and kisses, the mayhem of every day family life, the piles of toys on the floor, the belly laughs, and even the teary faces are the memories we end up cherishing the most. I believe in patience, and I believe in mindful and natural photography.

I live in Oakland, CA with my husband and our goofball 7-year old daughter, who can identify over one hundred different dog breeds. I will shoot anywhere in the Bay Area, and am available for sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and weekends.
