    ME . . . Photography is my chosen career and lifelong fascination. I see beauty in everyone and am inspired by people, light, and nature. I have owned and operated my photo studio since 2000 specializing in photographing newborns, babies, children, families and events such as bar and bat mitzvahs. I hold a degree in Photojournalism and used to work as a professional Photojournalist as well as a wedding photographer. I adore children of all ages and enjoy capturing their whimsical nature and many expressions. My award-winning photography has been featured nationally and internationally.

What a pleasure it was to photograph this handsome seven-day old little one! He slept soundly through most of his photo session and woke up only to have a snack before peacefully dozing back to sleep. Colin’s adoring parents bought a Grow With Me package for him but used the first session for their Christmas card when his mommy was in her first trimester. Lucky me, I get to photograph him one more time when he’s in his milestone of sitting up, his chubby cherub rolls, and when a few teeth might be coming in. I can’t wait! If you follow my blog you may recognize this family from their daughter’s Grow With Me sessions HERE. Check out how much she’s grown since then!

To all the wonderful Daddy’s — this post is for you!

You are loved, cherished, and celebrated for all that you do for your family who adore you. Here’s to the Fathers who encourage their children to go for it, to climb the next branch of the tree and is ready to catch them if they happen to fall (they rarely do). Here’s to the Poppy’s who have a great sense of humor that makes their kids crack up laughing, who toss their toddlers a little higher in the air and push the swing a little harder. You teach by example.

Here’s to the dads who help their little ones learn to ride a bike for the first time and who work tirelessly to support their family. You give shoulder rides for your tired little traveler on that long hike back to the car, and you drive the minivan all the way to Disneyland and back with countless potty stops. You coach your kid’s soccer or little league team, or are the loudest cheerer on the sidelines. This is for the fathers who make the best Sunday morning pancakes, the perfect BBQ, and get up at the crack of dawn to grocery shop for all the Mother’s Day breakfast fixings while we sleep in. And let’s not forget that all these awesome dads fix stuff! We appreciate and honor you this Father’s Day!

Moms, if you would like to give him a gift that he will treasure forever (and you will enjoy immensely as well), there is still time to give him a gift certificate for family photography! Contact me at –  Father’s Day is JUNE 18!

Creating custom keepsake albums is one of my favorite parts of being a family photographer. I feel such a sense of satisfaction knowing that their favorite images are preserved in a gorgeous keepsake album that will be enjoyed for generations.

Albums is a solution to wanting to enjoy all the favorite images without having to put every image on one’s walls. It also is a great way to show a series as is shown in this album. There was a cute 3-image series that took place after the nice pose of the family in which her kids thought it would be funny to dog pile her, and there was an adorable 8-image series of the kids laughing. Those may not all be not wall-worthy but they are definitely album-worthy and will bring back fond memories of this fun age!

A little angel dropped in to my studio! Allow me to introduce to you Charlotte who holds the record for the most grins ever in a photo session! Once she got started she just kept grinning much to the delight of her parents. It was an absolute joy to photograph this little blessing of theirs with her delicate features, sweet cheeks, and adorable grin. She slept soundly throughout the entire session allowing me to put here in a variety of poses, both in props and in her parent’s arms. Her 3.5 year old brother joined in for some of the photo fun — he was especially entertained by his sister’s hiccups when he was snuggling with her!

This session was a gift certificate given to them as a baby shower gift from my very loyal clients. Photography, especially for a new baby arrival, is one of the most special and thoughtful gifts one can give a family. I know they will treasure these images forever.

    Thank you so much! These are wonderful pictures! Beautiful work and perfect people!????????

If you’ve been following my blog for years you probably recognize these cutie pies. I’ve been photographing Teague an Torunn since they were both two-week old newborns! They each had their own Grow With Me package which captured their first year of life, and they also came to all of my mini sessions.  Also, their parents throw the biggest Easter and Halloween bashes which I photograph yearly. This family holds a special place in my heart! We had a great time entertaining them to the point of giggles, and they really loved running around exploring the park together.

It has been an honor to be this family’s photographer for the past six years. To see how much they’ve grown check out some of their past sessions: Teague as a newborn is HERE and as a toddler HERE. And Torunn HERE and HERE.
