I am a portrait photographer and my style consists of landscape portraits using lighting techniques. Based out of Lake Tahoe, I moved my studio down to the Santa Cruz area. Photography is a passion and a special experience of life. To be able to capture your memories through life is truly amazing. Your wedding day, the moment you hold your newborn baby, special moments of your family as they grow. Your life to remember.
These are your sweetest memories.
I have been a resident here for the past 15 years and have owned and operated my own full time professional photography business for the past 10+ years. I have a very authentic and organic approach to photography. My specialty is connecting with people and helping them relax in front of the camera so that my skills and expertise can showcase the beauty, connections and nuances that I see. I capture honest and real moments in a captivating, creative and technically sound way.
I am a natural light portrait and lifestyle photographer and love to photograph high school/college seniors, engaged couples, maternity, and families as well as special events and weddings. I’m blessed to live and work in the beautiful Santa Cruz area of the California central coast which offers many fabulous locations to shoot. From the soaring redwoods and oak-studded, grassy meadows to the sparkling and playful seashore, there is a bounty of beautiful locations to choose from here in this little piece of paradise.
Let me capture the beautiful connections between you and your loved ones in a style that is light, fun and playful with an eye for the surrounding environment and an artful essence. I love to capture the soulfulness of your eyes as you’re looking into the lens, but also, between those posed moments, when you interact and relax, play a little, that’s where the magic really happens!
