I grew up in Massachusetts where shoveling my mailbox out of the snow was a normal way to spend a Winter morning and driving an hour in one direction meant I could end up in another State.
Once I moved to California for school (I went to UC Berkeley), I couldn’t leave. I fell in love with the year-round sunshine and having access to beaches and mountains every day.
I value the top-level education I received at Berkeley, but the most important thing I learned there was to be the best ME I can be.
I have been painting with all kinds of mediums since I was a young child. It’s the Fine Arts that have shaped the way I compose my photographic images and how I see colors, patterns and light.
I love children, animals, coffee, flip flops and laughing. You can find me dancing in the kitchen with my kids or holding a silly contest. Or making up a funny game that I force my husband to play.
My life isn’t perfect, but it’s perfectly my life. And that’s what I capture during my lifestyle photoshoots. I don’t look for “perfect” moments; I capture the real ones… The ones that describe a relationship, show an emotion and tell a story.
