My passion for photography began my junior year in high school, when I was enrolled in my first photo class at Davis Senior High School in Davis, CA. After I graduated in 1998, I continued my photographic studies at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, CA. In the fall of 2001, I began my studies at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. It was there I realized my most passionate subject, portraiture. After graduating with a BFA in Art and Design, I was eager to begin the next chapter in my life. With the birth of my daughter in 2004, my interest in photographing children grew. I enjoy capturing the pure persona of a child. And in December 2008, we welcomed our baby boy, he was born six weeks premature. I cherish every moment with my children. I treasure the photographs of both of my growing babies.
The experinces that I have learned from school has directed me to focus on an important factor of photography, which is to capture a moment in time. This has also inspired me to continue with another passion in wedding photography. I photographed my first wedding while in junior college and had the opportunity to photograph several weddings while I was attending Cal Poly. I also had the opportunity to work for two very well-established photographers on the Central Coast, where I advanced my photography skills and digital photo album designs. In 2007, I was able to branch off and begin my own business.
I thoroughly enjoy photographing weddings. I love the entire excitement of the day, capturing the most precious and timeless moments of a couple's joyous day. It's the greatest gift to know that these images will always be treasured.
I have photographed weddings and portraits throughout many cities in California: Davis, Sacramento, Napa, Chico, Lake Almanor, Graeagle, San Diego, Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, Los Osos, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Carpinteria, and Los Olivos. I've also photographed a few weddings in Lorena, Texas.
I look forward to serving you and photographing your precious moments providing you with images that you'll always cherish.
