About Me

Hello! I am a natural light portrait photographer based in Thousand Oaks, California. My love of photography started at a young age. When I had my own children, I began to appreciate even more the lasting value of photos and the beautiful memories they help preserve.

I honed my trade taking head shot photos of my children for the entertainment industry. The goal there is to use natural light and have the true beauty of the individual shine through with little distractions in clothing and backgrounds. I have translated this to my portrait photography. My style is very organic. I love to focus on my subjects and their interaction with one another, so I use few props and hold sessions in natural settings or the comfort of new baby’s home.

My patience with young children and professionalism are assets my clients value. Please check out my Yelp page for client reviews and like my facebook page or instagram for current events and samples of my latest work.

No two families are alike, and every photo session is a different experience. We come in with ideas, and we leave with a beautiful creation that is uniquely yours. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you and help you celebrate your milestones or your everyday! Please call me for appointment availability and pricing details.
