Engagements, Proposals, Elopements
Bumps & Babies, Kids, Families, Coming of Age, Graduates, Adults & Anniversaries
I’ve been capturing weddings, family lifestyle photography and casual portraits for more than a couple decades now working primarily in the Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Napa, and San Francisco Bay areas, as well as all along the coastlines around San Diego and Coronado and everywhere in between. I’m inspired by outdoor adventures, travel, playful people, live music and amazing light and take advantage of any opportunity to capture raw emotion and natural beauty away from home. Covering all of life’s special events, from birth to graduation, engagement to wedding, 1st anniversary to 50th, I love connecting with my clients and sharing something memorable that will last a lifetime.
Bumps & Babies
My clients get a responsive photographer, someone who cares about them. Every event is unique.
Every photograph is personal.
“Your love of life, creativity and passion are shining already and Miss Lily is not… 5 hours old! Amazing. Thank you.”
—Melissa K., Sacramento, CA
“Thank you for capturing my child through a mother’s eye.”
—Tiffany, San Francisco, CA
We go through a lot with each other—weddings, births, children. Many have become fast friends.
Coming of Age
“Lisa really got herself into the middle of all that was happening while at the same time was unobtrusive and respectful of the guests and the event. Such an amazing combination of skills”
—Shelly, Hollywood, CA
I always try to add a little fun and adventure to every session, finding ways to reveal the hidden beauty that’s always there.
“You have an amazing ability to capture real emotions on film. After looking at SO many photographers, we know the ability to capture such beautiful moments is a true gift. That’s why we chose you.”
—Giang and David, San Francisco, CA
“Your amazing talent to capture the raw emotion and detail of such a monumental day is truly captivating… we are still on cloud nine from our wedding.”
—Kate, Sacramento, CA
Adults & Anniversaries
Time flies by quickly and it’s so important to capture these moments.

Little Miss Ava
Well, it used to be that my most favorite part of photographing newborn sessions was getting a little newborn snuggle-time while also giving a tired mom and dad a little break here and there. In these times of covid, this is unfortunately not possible. I choose not to have any physical contact with these little babies. I can't wait till this is not the case.
Look how much these two kids have grown, HA -and their adult parents too....though I must admit, they look the same as when I captured them on their wedding day at Fausel Ranch back in 2011.
Brianna graduates from Ponderosa in May 2021
This was my third time photographing Brianna and thinking back, the first time, she was just a young girl of ten. Fast forward eight years and she still carries so much beauty, kindness and a gorgeous smile that lights up her face.
