MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I am a Lifestyle Family and Newborn Portrait Photographer based out of Castro Valley but willing to travel within the entire Bay Area and possibly a little outside of it.

I hope that I get to have the opportunity to capture those moments with you and your loved ones. So let's make some memories!

 

MEET THE MOM BEHIND THE CAMERA

I'm a mom with a camera, no shame.

But I have loved photography far before my son was born, however, he did make me want to turn what was once a hobby into something more. I've always been so fascinated with lifestyle portrait photography, there's something that is so special in a photo that seems like it was caught in a moment. Give me those photos of children running and laughing or a kiss caught between two people.

I think I've always been attracted to photography even from a young age. I remember always looking at the photos my mother had taken of us and put in scrapbooks and photo albums. I would constantly go into the hutch in our living room and look through the photos that she had collected over the years of my siblings and I. And I remember her giving us disposable cameras and I was always so excited to get them developed to see what the photos had come out like, especially because you kind of forget when it comes to film what you had actually photographed.

My mom purchased my first camera when I was in college and I'm honestly still using that camera to this day. It is one of my favorite cameras to use and it's traveled with me on quite a few trips. I've learned with that camera and I am so excited to continue learning with that camera and any new one that I eventually get. Though, if I'm honest, I should probably upgrade soon! I love my D5000 but it's definitely a little out of date! It's my trusty sidekick, so it's hard to replace something that has been so important to me.
