ME: I AM VERY OUTGOING AND WILL TALK TO MOST ANYONE. I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD, HOT DOGS, AND PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING WITH CHEESE. IM CONSTANTLY TRYING TO EAT HEALTHY REAL FOODS, BUT WHEN I’M ON THE RUN, SOMETIMES I GET LAZY WITH MY FOOD CHOICES. I AM A MOM TO TWO BOYS, A WIFE TO ONE OF MY BEST BUDDIES FROM HIGH SCHOOL, AND A OWNER OF 2 GOOFY DOGS. WE LIVE IN EAST SACRAMENTO IN A 100 YEAR OLD HOME. WE LOVE DOING HOME PROJECTS, BUT USUALLY ONLY FINISH THEM TO THE 90% MARK. I LOVE THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF LIFE. I FEEL LIKE I NEED A BREAK SOMETIMES, BUT THEN WHEN I GET ONE, AND CHOOSE TO FILL IT WITH TONS OF EVENTS OR OUTRAGOUS IDEAS. I HAVE COME TO TERMS WITH THE FACT THAT I NEED THE BUSY… AND BUSY IS MY FRIEND.

I HAVE KNOWN I WANTED TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER SINCE BEFORE HIGHSCHOOL. I WENT TO SAC HIGH (OUT OF MY DISTRICT) BECAUSE THEY HAD A PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM AND I SOAKED UP ALL I COULD. (ALL FILM BACK THEN) IT WAS SO FUN BEING IN THE DARKROOM, DEVELOPING FILM, THE CHEMICALS…  I WENT ON TO A PHOTOGRAPHY COLLEGE IN SANTA BARBARA AND GRADUATED WITH A BA IN COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY IN 2005. THERE I LEARNED ALL THE TECHINCAL TOOLS I NEEDED AND NOW USE TO BE CREATIVE IN MY PHOTOGRAPHY. I HAVE BEEN RUNNING MY OWN BUSINESS (AT FIRST ON THE SIDE OF NANNYING) FOR 12 YEARS. THE LAST 9 YEARS IT HAS BEEN MY FULL TIME JOB. I AM SO GRATEFUL I GET TO DO WHAT I LOVE AS MY CARRER.

I LOVE GETTING TO KNOW CLIENTS OVER YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHING THEIR FAMILIES AND WATCHING THEIR KIDDOS GROW. ITS BEEN SO AMAZING. I HOPE TO GET TO KNOW YOU AS A CLIENT SOON!
