I have been a Professional Photographer for many years and have had a camera in my hand since I was a kid!

My clients and friends say that my sessions are relaxed and fun and that is truly my style. You will most often find me in jeans and t-shirt with my hair up as I tend to get messy at my sessions laying on the grass or in the dirt to get the best  shots!

I travel frequently for sessions, most often to Hawaii where I  raised my daughter  Jordyn. Home base is now Southern California but with the new Vanlife Experience, you find me  on the road more often than not.

I love to collaborate with clients  and spend time before each shoot making sure I know what your  vision is.


During the session I like to keep everyone feeling calm and having fun. I have years of experience to  help you be in the moment and lose any self consciousness  you might have in front of a camera.

For commercial shoots, I love to help other business create images that make them and their products or services look their best. From small business’ to large productions I am very comfortable working with all kinds of people.

I can work solo or can bring an entire team of highly-skilled professionals  including assistants, stylists, make-up artists, graphic designers and wordsmiths that  can incorporate whatever is needed to offer you a full production, turn key shoot if that is what you need.

I look forward to working with you!
