From looking at the scrapbook my dad put together with my baby pictures to being on the yearbook staff in high school, I have always had a love for photography. After taking a few photography classes and being asked to photograph a wedding in 2007, I decided to turn my passion for photography into a business.
I am a member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and Professional Photographers of San Diego County (PPSDC). I take every opportunity I can to enroll in photography classes and seminars and to improve my technical skills. I also take the time to give back to the local community through donating to non-profit organizations and schools. In addition, I volunteer my skills to photograph for the San Diego Heart Gallery, a traveling photo gallery of children in foster care who are waiting to find their forever families. I am also a volunteer photographer with Red Thread Sessions, a national non-profit which provides adoption photography to families who have recently adopted a child.
I am a freelance photographer with ZCode Magazines where I am the exclusive photographer for 92129 Magazine, 92064 Magazine, and 92130 Magazine. Working on assignments for these publications has been a lot of fun, challenging at times, and has been great for sparking my creativity. I get to meet so many interesting people, lots of great families and many local small business owners.
To me, photography is about creating an unforgettable image that evokes emotion from the viewer. What I love about photographing people is being able to capture their unique personalities and sense of style. I enjoy interacting with my clients and getting them to relax and have fun during the session. The results speak for themselves.
