Driven by a desire to photograph the joy of the human condition, I have been documenting both the important and ordinary moments of life for 20 years in Southern California. I love to photograph people -- weddings, families, babies, maternity, boudoir – all with an artistic flair and a smile on my face.

I have many years of experience working as a photographer, but always keep it fresh by loving life, taking risks and having new experiences. 

Three years ago, I took an entire year off to backpack through South America with my husband and teenage daughters. Some of my loves include: travel, racing sailboats, reading, hiking and yoga.

 I have a BA in Communications/English with supporting area courses in photography. I worked as a photojournalist in my twenties, photographing professional sports, politics and news events. In my 30s, I was the co-founder of sun-dance photography, which I sold several years ago to work more independently and slowly. I have worked with and trained some of the best photographers in the area.

I'm thrilled that you are taking the time to view my work and would love to meet with you or talk with you on the phone.  

Based in Ventura, CA and always willing to travel.
