Although I do spend a lot of my days behind the camera (and computer-let's be honest), I also love never ending beach picnics at sunset and spending every second with my little fam. I believe that life is way too short to settle for boring- so I say YES to that extra mimosa, what am I kidding-hold the OJ please, dinner parties with good friends and good music blasting always.

The Experience

Growing up in Southern California I always knew I wanted to do something creative with my career. I often dreamed of driving away to attend some fancy fashion school, cue the Hills theme song, but that wasn't the plan and good thing it wasn't. I was able to meet my now husband Mike at school in San Diego. He has the biggest heart out of anyone I know and I never thought I would say this, but the way he crunches numbers is one of the things I love about him the most. We have created a special life together with our pup Olive and our new little bundle of joy, Margot Rose. Having wed in 2017, gotten pregnant in 2020 and many memories in between, I can appreciate how quickly those life moments seem to be here and gone in an instant. I knew I had to help others remember those fleeting moments in their life. Our time working together is more than just taking a few photos, it's love and passion poured into capturing organic, meaningful moments in time that will be there for you so that you can relive the BEST days of your life.
