When I was eleven, we moved from California to Arizona and half our stuff went into storage until we could find a bigger home. About three months later, our storage was broken into and everything was gone... including my parent's wedding album and all of my childhood photos.
I don't remember anything else we lost but what I do remember is how heartbroken my mom was. I remember her posting flyers offering to pay for their return and not press charges. I remember the feeling their loss over the years when I wanted to show my son baby photos and not being able to. Or when I became a wedding photographer and missing the photos of my mom as a bride.
When my son was around two, my grandmother sent me a Christmas gift. It was a small album of about twenty photos from my childhood that she had found while selling her house. After so many years, we finally had a small glimpse back into that world.
When we first lost our family photos is also when I started photographing everything. I had learned the importance of photos and now I believe that photographs are one of the few things we ever own that achieve a priceless status.
I have absolutely loved photographing all genres of photography. From families to weddings to senior portraits. I'm so grateful my business has settled on branding photography as a specialty. The women (and occasional men) I get to photograph are all wlidly inspirational people who are chasing their dreams and building lives that they love.
Having a dream that pulls at you is intense. And bringing yourself to make that leap is brave. I'm 100% here to talk creativity, style, and branding so that your dreams can make that jump to the next level!
I bought my first camera at a Black Friday sale in 2007. In 2009 I went back to work when my son was three. I spent nine years working full time in an office while trying to grow my business. Finally in November of 2018, I left my full time job to live a life I wanted to live.
I live with my partner, Raffi, my son, Kayden, my mom and our bird, Leo. My mother is a writer, my son beatboxes and plays violin, Raffi is an amazing wood worker, I take photos and we are endlessly happy.

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
