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 the unprompted moments, the days that bring both mayhem and calm, the piles of toys on the floor, the hugs and kisses, 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 claims puppies are cuter than babies. I will shoot anywhere in the Bay Area, and am available for sessions on Mondays, Thursdays and weekends.
