I am a coffee loving, barefoot hippie, momma of two, and wife to my high school sweetheart. If I am not cuddled under a blanket watching a good movie with my family at home, we are out exploring the woods and hills surrounding us. I’ve lived in the Bay Area my entire life, and actually been in the same 10 mile radius as my childhood home. But that is where my lack of adventure stops. Our wanderlust has taking us far and wide across the globe, our favorite spots being anywhere where nature is the main feature. Another reason why outdoor photography will always have my heart.
After losing my mother at age 20, it made me realize how important the images I had of her and more importantly us together meant to me. The ones that I cherish the most aren’t where we are both smiling and looking at the camera, but the quiet and small moments of our everyday life that exemplified our true relationship. This realization is what drove me to explore photography in a more raw and emotive way. Capturing those small moments for families to look back on and cherish. I hope to get the honor of telling your families story through my lens.
