Who I am:
I'm a thirty-something mom of one who recently moved to San Jose. My husband and I were living in San Francisco when I started this business, but starting a family has moved us to the 'burbs! Originally from North Carolina, I travel home regularly so don't hesitate to contact me about a session there. "Like" my page on FaceBook and I'll be sure to keep you posted on my travel plans.
How I got started:
Ever since I took a photography class in high school I knew I loved cataloguing the world around me...but it wasn't until my sweet niece was born that I realized my love of photographing children. There is nothing more wonderful than capturing the innocence, purity, and playfulness of children in their element. Now I have one of my own--pretty sure he's going to think he's a model by the time he can talk :)
There are so many amazing photographers out there with many different styles. I like to think of mine as "everyday natural". I want to capture you and your kids the way that you are: real smiles, real laughter, and real quirkiness! I use natural lighting on most shoots with occasional flash when needed.
The bulk of my experience is photographing children and families...but I have done sessions with expecting mothers, engaged couples, birthdays, baptisms, and even pets! I have a studio at my home, and also shoot on location. Your choice!
