It is so nice to meet you.
So you want to know a bit about me huh?
I'm just a wife and a mom and a dog mom and a plant mom trying to keep a little portion of my day to myself so I can do something I love before I go back home to cook , clean and do laundry.
I hope you get to come play with me.
Before I was a photographer I was a preschool teacher in West LA. I loved being with the kids, building forts and playing dress up. I starting photographing my students and kind of fell in love with the ability to capture a moment in time for their parents. Kids grow so much in a year and being able to give their parents a few snaps throughout their days was truly a gift.
When my kids got older I decided to leave the teaching world and start photography full time. In 2020 I signed lease for a small little space in downtown Thousand Oaks and built a newborn studio. It has turned into the perfect little space. I still love shooting on location, my favorite local spots to photograph families are the Chumash Museum, El Matador, Leo Carrillo and Malibu Creek State Park but inside my studio I get to create magic.
Whether you are looking for portraits, newborns, family or fine art I hope we get to create magic together and Collect Beautiful Moments.
