What I love most about photography is the opportunity to capture authentic, raw emotion while meeting interesting and adventurous people. There is truly nothing like it. Add a little amazing natural light and you’re on your way to some beautiful photography.

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.

Thank you so much for visiting my website and taking a few minutes to look at some of my photographs. I’ve been photographing weddings, families, milestones, and events for over 20 years. I know secret and beautiful photography shoot locations around Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Napa, the San Francisco Bay area, and the California coastline from Point Reyes down to San Diego and Coronado.

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.
