I am the mother of three young children and a lifelong resident of the Santa Clarita Valley. My passion for photography began in grade school and I have spent over twenty years since practicing and studying the art. In-home studio portraiture became a hobby of mine with the birth of my second child. He was born with a cleft lip and instead of taking him to crowded mall studios, I spent hours photographing him at home. I treasure each and every photograph of him during his first three months, before his lip repair surgery. I currently donate a session and cd to new babies born with cleft lips. Please share my contact information with anyone who might benefit from this.
A former Sunshine counselor and teacher of 11 years, I have always worked with children. My approach to picture taking is relaxed and I strive to capture genuine moments and relationships. My patience and love for children make photo sessions less stressful than traditional studio experiences. My shooting schedule is limited to a few days per month so your images will get the time and attention they deserve. Our time together will not be rushed and your family will be able to let true personalities shine through. I hope to capture this special time in your family's life soon.
