Being a photographer and a proud mother, I have an insatiable urge to capture treasured moments and bottle up that joy forever, keeping it all close to my heart, always there to give my soul a lift and bring a smile to my face.
I love getting to know people and helping them create photographs they will cherish for years to come. My greatest ambition is to take hold of those precious moments—the personality, the spirit—and preserve them so that they may always be looked back upon with a smile. Those moments are gifts to me as much as they are to you. Nothing brings me more joy!
There simply are no words to describe how I feel while watching a family’s tears of joy and laughter as they enjoy a slideshow of their special day. It’s more than a privilege to be able to capture their memories and, in the end, form a lasting friendship. Life is full of magical surprises!
And creating art out of that magic is what makes my adventure the most rewarding experience I could ever imagine. I am grateful for the best job in the world, and I am grateful every single day for the opportunity.  I offer on-locaiton newborn, baby, children, family and senior portraits session in Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon, Concord, Martinez, Clayton, Brentwood, Berkley, Lafayette, Orinda, Oakland, Redwood City, Menlo Park, San Jose, Los Gatos, Los Altos, Hilsborough, etc here in beautiful bay area, San Francisco!
