I started my business in 2010 and since then I’ve been shooting events, families, head shots as well as editorial work for private schools' print publications and websites. I also contract with commercial real estate brokers to shoot exteriors and interiors of their buildings.

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I've seen many changes and I've embraced them all: the diversity and vibrance of each neighborhood-- with that one constant that never changes: the weather!

I found my perfect place in Pasadena where I love to capture families in the nearby arroyo, at my clients' homes or in my mid century modern home with it's front and back yard gardens. I also have a basement studio with various backgrounds for doing head shots.

At my home office I work with clients to design their albums. I also have matting and framing options, canvas and bamboo wood enlargements, accordion books, usb drives and boxes, and more! It’s incredible how many heirloom quality products we can create to make your pictures last a lifetime.

Whether I'm shooting an event at a local Pasadena landmark, doing a family shoot at the beach, or any other location, I always find the best light, a dynamic background, and connect with my subjects.

My style is classic with a twist of modern. It's tempting to follow the trends or latest fashions in photography but I do think clients want that one timeless picture they'll put on their mantel or hang on their wall for generations to enjoy. My approach is friendly, my attitude is flexible and my design sense is fresh and uncluttered. And that never goes out of style.
