about me

DSC_4663-EditMy Work:

Thank you for your interest in my photography. I’m an on-location natural light photographer, specializing in children and families, located in Carlsbad, CA

My style is modern, lifestyle, editorial photography. Please browse through the images on this website and my blog, for examples. I primarily use natural light and outdoor environments for modern, fresh and fun images that tell the personal story of your family. I capture people as they are, in a casual, candid and fun atmosphere. Your portrait session will feel more like a playdate than a traditional studio session! Please see my FAQ for more information, or contact me to schedule your next portrait session.


My Background:

I have a 15 year background in traditional black and white film photography, but my deep passion for photography really began with the birth of my son in 2007. He is my ultimate muse. He is sensitive and soulful and curious. When he was a toddler, I used to take so many pictures of him, he thought I had a camera for a face! I was so enamored by his growth and development that I wanted to capture and protect every moment.  I started to experiment with angles, cropping and post-processing while developing my own artistic, photographic style. I went professional in 2010, and with every shoot, I developed as an artist and photographer through exploration and experimentation, keeping things fresh, unique, and most importantly natural and fun. My love for photography only grew stronger when my daughter was born in 2011 and completed our family. She is sassy and funny and fierce! I took 2 years off from professional photography to stay home with her and in the meantime, we relocated from New Jersey to sunny southern California in 2012.

Simply put, I am real. I am a mother and wife, with an artistic vision for capturing life’s most precious moments with amazing images, and I look forward to providing this service to your family!
