While in college at Santa Barbara's Brooks Institute of Photography, a friend asked if I could take pictures of her family and I was hooked! Fourteen years later, I can still say that I have the best job in the world.
I love hanging out with families and witnessing them grow every year. As a mother of two munchkins and together with the love of my life for ten years and growing, I truly appreciate and pay attention to those little moments. I read somewhere the family photos are one of the few things people grab as their house is burning down. One of the things people are so thankful for finding and painstakingly restore after an awful flood. One of those things people look through over and over and over again their entire lives, their children's lives, and their grandchildren's lives.
I understand how important those precious photos are for every family. I take great pride in capturing those memories forever and I am honored to capture yours.
