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.

Tom and Jillian
It was so wonderful to get to photograph Tom and Jillian's senior photos celebrating their graduation from Oak Ridge High School. Tom is handsome with those gorgeous blue eyes and so sweet and kind. He loves all things computer games! Jillian-poised, with those deep brown eyes, beautiful hair and bright smile is also such a sweetie. She sang for me during the session having just returned with her choral group from performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City! Amazing.
Baby Benito is 10 weeks old!
Benito: meaning "Blessed" and I'm certain his parents feel this way too. Look at those bright eyes and that smile! Benito stole my heart instantly.
It’s ALL about the bubbles….
It’s not always “hitting the ground running” with a session, especially with toddlers and a timeframe. While this one started off a bit shaky, we were able to find a rhythm with Miss Madelynn and capture some lovely images. While I’m certain Mandy and Tom, whom I photographed their gorgeous spring wedding in the exact
