The kind of images I make are rooted in our connection as human beings. I love seeing the honesty, vulnerability and beauty that exist in those connections. I'm not interested in perfection. Instead, I strive to capture life in an artful, meaningful way.

My approach to documenting wedding days and family life is the same. I notice the in-between moments. I see beauty in unexpected places. I focus on the natural unfolding of the day to make honest, emotive, intimate images.

I live, work and breathe foggy salt air in the Outer Sunset of San Francisco. I’m a single mother to my free-spirited seven year old daughter Ava, who shares my love for art and has a heart as wild as mine. As often as possible, I swim in the ocean and listen to Leonard Cohen records. I believe in the power of human kindness and empathy.

Let's Connect: 

I photograph weddings, elopements and documentary family sessions across Northern California and worldwide. Get in touch with me here. For commercial and personal work, see my portfolio here.
