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 my 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 grew to believe that photographs are one of the few things we ever own that achieve a priceless status.
In late 2022, we found a handful of old film reels and found a business that would develop them. Shortly after the New Year, we got the scans back and discovered a treasure trove of memories; from 8th grade dances, to shots of Los Angeles and San Francisco in the sixties, to my mother looking stunning in an orange party dress, to my late Grandfather waving back at us from 60 years ago.
Over the decades, these little pieces of time that have fallen through the years to us have held indescribable meaning, and have continues to fuel my passion for documenting stories through photography.
I bought my first camera at a Black Friday sale in 2007. In 2009, I went to work in an office when my son was only three. I spent nine years trying to grow my business until finally, in November of 2018, I left my office job to pursue photography full time.
Alongside photography, my partner and I run a second business, Click Bloom, which has taken off since the pandemic. I'm grateful for this life of creativity we've been so lucky to build and hope our story can inspire others to be creative, and document their story as it unfolds.

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.
