I look for the positives in every situation, and the beauty in every person. The belief that everyone deserves gorgeous images of themselves and their family at a reasonable price is my philosophy.
I bought my first camera when I started teaching 15 years ago. I was fascinated with taking pictures of my endearing 3rd graders. After my first daughter was born, we went to a creative photography studio and paid a premium amount just to be rushed out before the next client. Soon after, I received my first DSLR as a gift (from my awesome in-laws), and I fell in love creating images of my own. I soon learned that a fancy camera does not make a good photographer.
I started attending courses, devouring books, researching online, and constantly taking pictures of my babies and students. I have also been blessed with endless advice and guidance from Rosie Hernandez and Susan Shamoun, two outstanding photographers that have my respect and admiration.
My passion and talent for photography has continued to grow. I love shooting on location, using as much available light as possible to capture real moments. I am obsessed with this never-ending, ever changing challenge to understand this intricate art. I am a helpless romantic, born optimist, nurturing mother and teacher, who loves taking stunning images. I would love to take some of you and your family.
