My areas of expertise lie in family photo shoots, including maternity, newborn, engagements and milestone events. I specialize in helping create special moments to capture the true essence of you and your family.
During your session I will assist you by gently guiding you through posing and expressions using subtle prompts to make you and your family feel comfortable in front of my camera. From a whimsical, candid style shoot to a more reserved traditional style, I am here for you. When you book a session with me, I'll send you a brief questionnaire to help me get to know a little about you so that we can make these photos truly unique to you and your family.
You be you, and I’ll do the rest. I can’t wait to get you in front of my camera and start creating some beautiful memories!
Random Stuff About Me ... in case you were wondering
I grew up in Ventura and though I haven’t lived there in quite a few years I still have ‘roots’ there with family and friends. So it's only natural that a lot of my photography work is in the Ventura - Conejo Valley areas.
My Dad gave me my first camera years ago (um, before the internet and well before digital cameras were even a thing) when I lived in England so that I could send my family photographs and I haven’t stopped snapping since.
I am a total map geek! Yup! I can get lost for hours just reading maps (metaphorically, obvs!) True!
Family and friends, art galleries and museums are my fav things. Perhaps a bit cliché but so true.
I joined Professional Photographers of America to continue my education and keep up with the latest trends and standards of practice in the photography world.
I worked for many years in the medical field before my photography hobby morphed into my full-time business.
I’ve written and photographed recipe books for family members as well as family history and ancestry books.
I am proud to be a third a generation Mexican-American on my Dad’s paternal side of the family.
It’s taken me a long time to write about “me” because I’d much rather talk about you. Really.

Choosing a location
The possibilities are endless. The best place to start is by choosing a location that has a special meaning for you or that shows what is important to you. This is the foundation of creating images that will truly resonate with you and those who know you. Its the starting point to creating images that evoke emotions that are truly pleasing.
Don't have a special place in mind? No worries, I've got you covered! I have many beautiful locations in mind with gorgeous lighting to choose from. Together we'll choose the location that fits your style and vision.
