At the age of 14, I convinced my parents to convert a little-used closet in their basement into a darkroom. There began a lifelong love of photography–a pursuit that would, unbeknownst to anyone, shape my future.
I love my work because I have a passion for people and the beauty in the world around us. I approach each session with the goal of creating an experience that is relaxed & personal and includes a sense of humor. It’s my great privilege to be trusted with capturing your images and memories.
By using natural light and following your cues, I am able to create portraits that are candid and beautiful, yet classic. I will photograph you where you are most comfortable…whether that is in your own home or garden, in my home studio, or at one of the many stunning outdoor locations that surround us. And I embrace the challenge of overcoming a client’s apprehension of being photographed.
The Bay Area has been my home for over 20 years. My career path includes a business & marketing background, photography training, and experience working with children. I’ve been continuously involved making connections with children-–first through developing children’s software, then by founding a children’s art studio, and now by photographing people and places. My husband, Sam, and I live in Marin with our two children, and I donate regularly to community schools and charities.
My work includes family portraits, high school seniors, professional headshots, and commercial/web photography.
