I am a Northern California based destination wedding and portrait photographer, fire wife, boy mom, professional wanderer, wannabe mermaid and coffee addict. I love to connect with people and hear their stories. You will rarely find me posing my clients as I believe in real genuine moments.  If it's sunny outside, you can bet I will be sitting in the sand on the nearest beach reading a book and watching my three (yes, three) boys dig trenches to the ocean. I totally understand Moana, because seriously, have you seen where the line meets the sea? It calls me ya'll!
