My Story

My father handed me a camera when I was 10 years old and told me to shoot everything, everywhere, all the time. I loved taking photographs of people, young and old. I have had a camera in my hands ever since. I studied photography in high school and college and then went to LA to be a filmmaker. After graduating from the LA Film School as a director and producer I had a stint as a stuntwoman, worked on many films and music videos, and styled a Victoria Secrets commercial directed by Michael Bay. I found out I was pregnant after 8 years in Los Angeles and chose family and my children over Hollywood. I wanted my kids to have the childhood experience I had – trees, dirt, animals and nature. So we moved back north to Sonoma County.

Once back in Sonoma County, I had the great fortune of apprenticing with an award winning wedding photographer. After several years, I was hooked! It’s an honor being with people on one of the most important days of their lives. To tell the story of it. To capture the beauty, the excitement, the drama of it all.

I am the mother of three children, Zohar, Rhazi and Joziah. They are the absolute love’s of my life. My daughter has recently left home to attend RISD in Rhode Island, the oldest of my two sons packs my car and fills my water bottles and my youngest son is almost 5, so his job is to kiss me goodbye. We have a loud Bengal cat named Gypsy, and have traveled as a family all over the world; our last trips were to Jamaica and Bali where we sailed on a pirate ship for a week, snorkeling with manta rays and sharks! I’m not going to lie, I was scared, but don’t tell my kids!

Weddings are a unique and expressive avenue in photography, and require a few additional skills. You have to be quick to adjust, be good under stress and be able to work with all kinds of people and personalities in any situation or circumstance handed to you. I bring a no stress, creative spirit to any job I do. My travels and career in the film industry have prepared me for this job perfectly!
