About me

Read More

I am a midwest girl living and loving life in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I spend my days either chasing my 2 crazy boys around parks and the beach or snuggling them at home while building my dream photography business.

I am a bay area transplant and a few of my favorite things are being around kids, light, pretty colors and lots of flowers.

As a former teacher and mother of two crazy boys, I know exactly how to play and interact with your kids to get the best smiles and candid posing.

I am a planner by nature and in my business and life, I tend to make a plan for the plan about the plan. From the minute you book with me, I have everything covered from location ideas, to my client wardrobe available for use.




My little family is my whole world.  I love being a boy mom and a wife to this smart and driven man!

My Family

In case you haven't notice, I am obsessed with beautiful flowers and would love to incorporate them some way into your session!


Currently I am reading anything by Dave Ramsey!  I wish I had learned about his money principals years ago!

a great book

My husband and I have lived in the midwest, the east coast and now the west coast!  I have loved getting to travel around and experience new places!  My favorite place to live so far is California! 


I will work with you every step of the way from choosing the perfection location, to picking out coordinating outfits (when you book a session, you will have full use of my client wardrobe). Come to my gorgeous studio in Alameda, CA or meet me on location in the beautiful Bay Area. I love shooting maternity, newborns, families, weddings as well as hosting a few mini session events every year. Portrait packages start at $450.
