LIFE. It’s in the wonder-filled eyes of a newborn, the playful spirit of a toddler, and the warm embrace of a family. It’s in the milestones we celebrate together – high school graduations, wedding anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and all those special days in between.

Sometimes we don’t realize life is passing by… until it does! Capturing these life milestones with photography that you’ll cherish forever is my LOVE and passion. Whether by the blue waters of Lake Tahoe or on the colorful streets of Sacramento, my clients share an appreciation for nature, the outdoors, and good times!

HAPPINESS is finding a lifestyle and adventure photographer who can tease out your funny, silly, sensitive, and beautiful side (while boulder-hopping, river paddling, mountain climbing, and carving a fresh course on the Sierra Nevada slopes). It’s being touched, over and over again, both by that amazing, late afternoon California light and by your family’s authentic and natural love preserved forever in a photo.

The connections I capture in camera and the bonds I build with my clients are at the center of my art, my business, and my HEART. Life is a highway with milestones that remind us that it’s not the destination, but the JOURNEY that makes living so much fun! Next road trip, why not take an experienced Sacramento family photographer along for the ride?
