“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
— Andy Warhol

Hello, I'm so glad you're here. I'm a sunny 
San Diego native that loves capturing memories and telling stories. From the beaches to the desert, we are surrounded by so much beauty. I'm a momma to three sweet little ladies and married to my high school sweetheart. I've been taking photos my entire life, finding my true passion for it in high school. I graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Communication and Anthropology. 

After 7 years as a television producer, I decided to stay home with my babies and start my own photography business. “Memories made real;" that is what I create. I capture beautiful, authentic  images of you, your family, and those whom you love the most. The moment may be gone, but a photograph is forever. 

I love them all!! But I absolutely adore Fresh 48 sessions. So many people overlook capturing those first days after birth, but I think they are insanely beautiful and raw. And the first moments siblings meet their new baby and see momma are pure magic.

What's your favorite type of session?

PRINT PRINT PRINT your photos!! I get it, we live in a digital world, but please print your photos! Make albums, fill frames, cover your walls. Print your photos and let them live for everyone to enjoy...don't let them die on a hard drive or old pages of social media.
