I am a San Francisco based photographer. I am working hard to continue to grow my photography business, here in the city of fog, victorians, and delicious food. Currently my photography focuses are lifestyle, family, engagements, newborns, and children. I love working with people and photography gives me a great opportunity to do so.
A little more about me...
I am a native Californian and grew up in the greater LA area. After meeting my husband, who lived in San Francisco, I decided to take a leap of faith and move to SF. It was a great leap of faith as we are now married and have a precious 3 year old son and a little babe that joined us in April 2017. My background is a mix of elementary education and photography. Growing up, I spent a lot of time using any camera I could get my hands on from polaroids to film and later to digital. I really fell in love with the camera when I was in high school and took film photography. To me, there was nothing greater than working in the darkroom. After high school, I went onto to college to become an elementary school teacher, which was another great passion of mine. I continued to do photography as a hobby and actually took a break between college and my credential program to work in the photography department at Shape Magazine. This was right around the digital revolution and we transitioned from looking at proofs over a light box to enlarging them on a computer screen. It was an exciting time! But alas, I missed my other calling, so I went back into the classroom, where I stayed for 8 years. During that time, I decided to start my own personal photography business and have been doing that for the past 5 years. After leaving the classroom to stay home with my son, I continue to enjoy my photography and work daily to strike a balance between these two passions, my family and my art.
Now onto our next chapter... my little family of 4 will be relocating to Austin, Tx! It's going to be quite an adventure and I'm excited to grow my business there. I will be coming back to the Bay Area a handful of times per year, so don't stray too far!
