Clovis, California & The Central Valley

 My photography style is described as classic, warm, black and white captures with a timeless appeal.  The absence of loud colors in wardrobe and props  in my work allows for your baby and family to be the focal point. My ultimate goal is to have families look back at each photo years from now and remember what mattered most to them. I know all too well how fleeting these moments can be especially for busy mothers and this is why I have a mission and heart for making sure all my mothers get into the photos with their little ones. It is so important for me to have a stress free experience in place for them that plans all the details before, during and after photo day. Moms who feel their best on session day are more confident, relaxed and authentically show up for their children and this is where the magic  truly happens!

I started my humble home studio portrait business in April of 2008 in Aptos, CA. I currently reside in Clovis CA where I serve clients in the the Central Valley as well as the greater Monterey Bay Area. I'm a graduate of Baby as Art newborn portraiture class summer 2011. A member of The Motherhood Anthology since 2018 and a proud Print Ambassador for Bay Photo Lab. 

I serve busy families with timeless, romantic portraiture through a stress free process. Discerning clients that work with me find more time to enjoy their children's milestones. My signature tangible proofing system, heirloom albums and framed collages set me apart from most portrait photographers. It is my honest and sincere hope to serve my clients with the best portrait experience they will receive anywhere.
