MORE OF MY STORY

When I was a kid, I thought I had died and gone to heaven waaaaaay back in 1982 when my parents gave me a Polaroid camera. The technology blew my mind! Years later, I studied photography and learned many things, my favorite being developing film, the process was fascinating. Spending countless hours in a small dark room never got old. In this digital age, I'm awed at the magic of today's technology, and the incredible tools available that make creative possibilities endless.  

Its kinda funny, but sometimes I feel like my eyes are mini cameras. Everywhere I look, I evaluate lighting, and like to imagine the stories that could be told, and how lives could be shared. I am in love with the beauty of time and everyday moments, there is something so fulfilling about preserving them for others, and knowing it will last forever. If you haven't guessed by now...photography is my passion.  


When we work together, you're not just hiring a photographer; you're making a new friend, who is sincerely interested in you and creating meaningful art and memories. 

Let's meet and get creative together!


In love with preserving the beauty of time

I am a natural light photographer, located in Marin County, California. I specialize in capturing beautiful stories that celebrate strong connections. My goal is to photograph essence. I am in love with preserving the beauty of time and am inspired by shooting "outside the box" - no idea is too crazy! I am an adventurer at heart, devoted wife, and mother of two amazing kids. Oh! And I have special affection for my 110 pound lap dog, Bernie the bernedoodle :-)

I crave authenticity and welcome vulnerability. If you’re not genuine, I want to know why. I’ll take your authenticity even if it isn’t pretty.

When I’m not shooting (and even sometimes when I'm shooting - Ha!) I’m living my best life in sweatpants for optimal comfort and the least amount of effort. It’s so good and life is too short to be uncomfortable.

Give me a blanket, a warm breeze, a cloudless night and I’m happy gazing at the endless universe all night long. The stars speak truth we will work years to decode.

Animals are my thing

Giving back

They provide a safe and loving home for large breed senior dogs who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason, until they are adopted or to remain at the sanctuary until they pass on.

A progressive, award-winning animal shelter, offering refuge and rehabilitation to nearly 10,000 animals each year through myriad of community services including: adoptions, foster care, behavior and training, humane education, classes, lost and found pet services, and low-cost veterinary clinics.

The legal voice for all animals. They file high-impact lawsuits to protect animals from harm, provide free legal assistance and training to prosecutors in their fight against animal cruelty, support animal protection legislation, and provides resources and opportunities to law students and professionals to advance the field of animal law.

These local charities are making a big difference to our four legged friends (and three legged!). I LOVE animals and I'm so proud to be able to support them. Click on the links below to learn more
