We all enjoy life a little better if there’s time to pursue your passions. For me they’re simple: spending time with family and friends, being in the water and taking pictures. Without having specific photographic assignments, it’s been fun to capture landscapes and birds. But that’s a lonely pursuit and I’d rather do editorial work with people.Read More

Hi there! It's been awhile since my last post and my apologies for not following up sooner. Since late June I've had multiple tests to determine if the lymphoma was still in my bone marrow and in my lymph nodes.
I'm happy to report that the biopsy and scans are CLEAR! However, my doctor still wanted me to do a few more rounds of chemo. After that I rung the Survivor Bell!
It's been about five months since my Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma diagnosis, which has changed my life and presented many challenges. As hard as it's been to cede control and hand your body and soul over to the doctor and nurses at City of Hope, it has also been affirming to have your husband and kids literally stop their lives to help you heal and give you support.Read More
Last month I was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's settled in the lymph nodes under my arms, neck as well as my spleen and bone marrow.
Sounds scary, but the doctor at City of Hope doesn't seem intimidated by the diagnosis and has given me an 80% chance of a complete cure. My husband and I feel very fortunate we were able to get admitted immediately..Read More
Happy New Year 2018!
Here's a glimpse of what I did in 2017!Read More

I had the incredible opportunity to spend a day at Children's Bureau shooting pictures for their website, print marketing and promotional materials.
For those of you who have never heard of the organization, you must know that it's been around for over 100 years and has been a key founder of both the United Way and the USC School of Social Work....Read More
Despite the very hot, sticky and smoky weather, Jessica's Bat Mitzvah was so much fun to shoot!
The Havdalah ceremony was held at Temple Ahavat Shalom in Northridge. Because Havdalah is held in the late afternoon and it was over 100˚, we shot pre-ceremony pictures in the sanctuary....Read More
I love shooting family portraits at Pasadena Jewish Temple because of the beautiful archways and Spanish style architecture of the original building purchased over 75 years ago....Read More
I'm offering holiday mini sessions the weekend of November 4th and 5th, in the morning or late afternoon.
For $150.00 you'll get 20-30 minutes of shooting your family (and pets!) at your home (you must be located within 15 miles of Pasadena)....Read More
Although I've shot events with over 300 people, it's such a treat to be at smaller parties in people's homes where I can take my time to get to know my clients and their family and friends....Read More
My dream since I was in high school was to be a photojournalist. I've attempted it many times through my travels and as I've gotten older, I'm more confident with my equipment, I've honed my vision, and I don't hesitate to get the shot. But the gritty war torn places I fantasized about going to as a college student never became a reality....Read More
