I'm a San Francisco-based family photographer.
My kids are my inspiration for a lot of things. I've been taking photographs for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until they came along that things clicked for me with the camera. Photography has become my way to capture every fleeting moment with them—their beautiful, bright eyes; gummy smiles; bubbles of laughter; the littleness of their feet. My photography became a way to tell a story—less a narrative, more about sense and emotion.
As it turns out, I don't just love photographing kids, but families too, and all the things in between—from expectant parents to couples on their way to be wed. My sessions are casual, so that I can capture a family's dynamic through photos the way that I do with my own.
What else can I say about myself? I'm a traveler at heart. I've lived abroad in Spain twice, and have traveled to India, China, New Zealand, Mexico, Morocco, and throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. I love visual art, design and architecture, and once upon a time, I worked for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, the MFA/Boston, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Now that I'm a mom, I still try to find time to keep an eye on the local art scene, even though sometimes that means the kind that's scribbled on my wall with crayon.
