I grew up with photographers in the family. Quickly, I became both a model and an assistant to my family members, carrying their bags and posing when the lighting was spectacular. How could I not develop an interest in photography?
My parents bought me my first camera in middle school. I started photographing anyone who would let me. My camera became a part of me; my high school friends were shocked when it was not glued to my hand. When the time came to decide on my major, the thought occurred to me that maybe I could do this for a living.
In 2009, I began the journey to becoming a professional photographer by attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, majoring in art and design with a concentration in photography. The business came soon after. I have loved turning my passion into my career. After spending years on the Central Coast, I have returned to the Central Valley. Here, I specialize in wedding photography. In addition, I also photograph families, graduating seniors, and proposals.
>> When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me on a road trip, dancing, or binge-watching “Friends” for the 100th time. Hanging with my animals and game nights also rate high on my fun meter.
>> I can’t live without tea: black, green, herbal, with cream or without. It’s how I start and finish my day!
>> I love love getting out and exploring. Day trips to the coast or to the mountains are my jam. So if you want to get adventurous for your engagement shoot or wedding, I’m all for it!
>> I am a blues fusion dancer. A few years ago, I had absolutely no clue this community existed, and now I can’t imagine not being a part of it. Picture ballroom + swing + free style partner dancing all mixed together.
