  • 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.


I love the colors in these images from Jeanine’s family photo session. They picked perfect outfits and despite the heat, we were able to get some great shots of this beautiful family:



all in the family

It was such a treat four years ago when I met Bridget and her Mom Regina, to take Bridget’s senior portraits. Bridget’s photos are still some of my very favorites! You can imagine how happy I was when Regina reached out because her son Paul is graduating from high school and Bridget has just graduated from college! So exciting. I loved recommending with this incredibly sweet family and getting to capture these important moments in their lives. Thank you Regina!!!! Hope you enjoy your sneak peek of Paul’s senior portraits and a few of the gorgeous Miss Bridget thrown in there!

Regina – how is this for a new Bridget classic B&W? Still so gorgeous!!

And here’s that look we love!!:)

Lot’s more pictures to see – I will have your gallery up by next week!:)

Shine bright like a diamond

Tayler’s senior photos are here just in time for her graduation from high school. What an accomplishment! The girl has so much going for her it just makes me think of the word shine! She shines!! It was a joy heading up to a cool location, watching the sun set over Folsom Lake and capturing these photos of Tayler at this important time in her life!

Tayler brought along her best friend to join in on a few pics:

This next image is one of my favorites from the night. ┬áIt isn’t the typical senior portrait; I actually just snapped it as Mom was helping Tayler with an outfit change, but I love the sentiment behind it. Such a sweet picture of mama’s hands taking care of her baby girl:

Did you know Tayler’s a dancer too? Yeah she shines!

Sooooooooooooo amazing! Thank you. You are a gem!!! Marvalos

waiting for baby


Many of my clients and friends lately have ben taking the surprise route to finding out the baby’s gender. We found out at 20 weeks with both of our children but I have often wondered about the experience of waiting and wondering how that feels when the doctor holds the baby up and announces, “It’s a ____.” Michelle and Jared have two beautiful girls and they are waiting to know if baby #3 will join the ranks of the other beautiful girls in their home or round out the boys team. Either way, surely they will be blessed to add this little one into their family. It was such a pleasure to catch up with this sweet mama and her family.

Michelle – thanks so much for the opportunity to photograph this special time in your life. Your girls are precious and I wish you the best with your newest little addition!!!!


These are beautiful, Sandy! Thank you so much! You did an amazing job capturing this special time for us.
