About Me

At the age of 14, I convinced my parents to convert a little-used closet in our family basement in the Midwest into a darkroom. There began a lifelong love of photography–and I’ve been photographing people and places ever since!

I love my work because I have a passion for people and the beauty in the world around us, and it’s my great privilege to be trusted with capturing your images and memories. I realize that many people feel apprehensive about being photographed- don’t worry, I’ve got you! As a professional photographer for nearly 20 years and a parent myself, I approach each session with the goal of creating an experience that feels connected, easy-going, and ultimately, more fun than you expected.

The Bay Area has been my home for over 33 years, and I never tire of our beautiful surroundings. I was awarded Marin Magazine’s Best Photographer of the Year in both 2022 and 2023, and my work has been featured in many publications. Along with my photography education, my background includes corporate marketing, entrepreneurship, and working in schools.

By using natural light and following your cues, I create environmental portraits that are candid and beautiful, yet classic. I photograph my clients at their homes, workplace, or at one of the many stunning outdoor locations that surround us.

My husband, Sam, and I live in Marin and have two children, who are young adults. I never tire of discovering new locations & meeting the fascinating people who live in our area. When I’m not creating photographs, I enjoy hiking with friends, traveling, volunteering, and being with family. I donate regularly to community schools and non-profits.

My photography work includes family portraits, high school seniors, professional headshots, and brand/lifestyle photography.
