a wife to one, mom to three, and a photographer of weddings and all the important life stages that precede + follow. I’m based out of Folsom, California and feel grateful every day to have mountains and beaches and vineyards within reach.
I’ve had a camera in hand since I was about 10 years old, photographing my sister, my pets, inanimate objects around the house. I took 4 years of photography courses and then booked my first wedding when I was 19. I knew nothing about posing, I shot in JPEG, and I delivered the images on a CD. Rest assured, I’ve come a long way since then. 10 years of experience and hundreds of galleries later, I now shoot with the goal of emotive, cohesive, and timeless images.
an almondmilk vanilla latte, time spent in the sun, and at least three episodes of Seinfeld before bed.
listening to a true crime podcast, planting flowers in my front yard, making yet another snack for my kids.
San Francisco, deep conversations, any book by Lauren Groff, and my 35mm Pentax.
I intentionally choose not to separate my professional self from these values because I see my work—photography in general—as an opportunity to make the world a more accepting and beautiful place.
If that paragraph has you exiting my website as quickly as possible, that’s okay. If you’re still reading and you like your photography services with a side of unconditional inclusion, you’re in the right place.
I believe that love is love; that black lives matter; that humans are inherently worthy.
The boundary between my personal values and professional work is—and has always been—nonexistent.
I'd be honored to photograph you.
