  • Welcome!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. This is a place where you will be able to find my latest photography work and client sneak peeks. I absolutely love the art of photography and consider it a blessing to have the opportunity to photograph so many wonderful people.

    Please note: I am currently booking a very limited number of sessions each month and sessions often book out months in advance.

Minis 2014 kick off!

I am looking forward to a great holiday season filled with mini sessions and tons of great families. I love catching up with everyone at this time of the year and was so excited to get started on my first set of minis for the fall.

It was great starting off with this super sweet family that I just had the pleasure of meeting. Ryan, Susie, Marin and Bryce were great to hang out with and Marin – well – how cute is she?? So beautiful!


If you’ve followed this blog for any period of time you have seen this handsome guy before. I am so excited that he is soon to have a baby brother!!!

Mom is looking gorgeous as ever of course! Some people walking by even thought Mariah was getting senior portraits until they saw her belly.:)

I think this was my favorite though – love this fun interaction between Landon and Ryan.

Ian and Anna also came out – look how cool Ian is!! Seriously!

Oh Anna – I just adore you:

And a little twirling to close out a fun night. Thank you all for coming out – galleries coming soon.:)

Sister love


Sister photos are my favorites, they just are! These sisters are always so sweet and as I’ve watched them get older it’s so fun to see their sister bond grow too. I couldn’t get enough of their sweet interactions and silly smiles! They  just moved into a new beautiful home and we shot all these photos around their developing yard. I forgot to tell you Jenny, Gynn said I could move in and sleep on her trundle bed. Gemma said I could sleep in her room too but she doesn’t have a trundle:(The moving van will be there Friday!;)Thanks for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful girls again!!



Beautiful pictures Sandy and I am sure having adorable little girls helped with the shots! :)


When I met Jackson last weekend I asked him if he liked the garden we were at and if he wanted to explore the pretty trails. He asked me if I meant an adventure, because well, he loves adventures. I knew we were fast friends that moment because I told him I love adventures too and boy did we have an adventure. We went bike riding through the trails and searched for dinosaurs; we practiced our dinosaur roars and then played catch. It was a great time hanging with Jackson and his Mom. I loved his sweet personality and his adventurous spirit!!! Thanks for the great morning Kara and Jackson!!!!

Sacramento Parent Cover

This is my third time having a photo on the cover of Sacramento Parent magazine and it’s always such a fun treat. I love seeing Sacramento Parent around town and checking out what’s inside; it’s even more fun to walk by it and see a photo that came out of my camera on the front! There’s even a picture of me on the inside this time. Lisa, the graphic designer for the magazine snapped a photo of me while I was capturing detail shots of the background – glad I wasn’t having a bad hair day;)Thanks Sacramento Parent!! I’ve included a couple other cute pics from our session that day. There are more pictures in the magazine and a story behind the cool props, so pick up your copy today!

What a fabulous shoot! Gorgeous work, as always!
