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 for as long as I can remember.
It’s my great privilege to be trusted with capturing your images and memories. I love my work because I have a passion for people and the beauty in the world around us. I realize that many people feel apprehensive about being photographed- don’t worry, I’ve got you! I’m a parent myself, and I approach each session with the goal of creating an experience that is relaxed, personal and includes a sense of humor.
I feel strongly that quality family photography is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your children. By using natural light and following your cues, I am able to create portraits that are candid and beautiful, yet classic. I photograph my clients at their homes & gardens, or at one of the many stunning outdoor locations that surround us.
The Bay Area has been my home for over 33 years, and I’ve been a professional photographer for nearly twenty. Recently, I was awarded Marin Magazine’s Best Photographer of the Year, and my work has been featured in many publications. My background includes corporate marketing, photography training, working in schools, and entrepreneurship.
My husband, Sam, and I live in Marin and have two children, who are recent college graduates. I never tire of discovering new locations & meeting the fascinating people who live in our area. In my free time I enjoy hiking, traveling, volunteering, and being with family. I donate regularly to community schools and charities.
My photography work includes family portraits, high school seniors, professional headshots, and brand/lifestyle photography.
