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.

The Menard Family- Our evacuation refuge
Hello, nice to meet you. We arrived as strangers at the home of Michelle and Robert at about 7pm, on the day the Caldor Fire evacuated Pollock Pines, though they certainly didn’t make us feel that way. We had spent most of the evacuation day slowly prepping which in 95726, means you’re lucky.
Jessica – Union Mine’s Class of 2022
Fast forward to 2021- and there I was photographing the graduating Jessica at Sly Park Lake just an hour or so before homecoming began at Union Mine. Right? Why not schedule a session when you're all dolled up ready to roll?
Ally graduates from Pondo in ’22
I was supposed to meet up with Ally sometime during the height of the Caldor Fire in our area but with my two-week mandatory evacuation and Ally's moms work with the El Dorado Foundation raising and distributing money through the Caldor Fire Fund to people in need, we thought a postponement was in order.
