The Artist

Just a girl with a camera, who loves chasing light, capturing little moments, and
making you feel comfortable in front of my lens… ♥


I am a fine art destination wedding and portrait photographer in Cameron Park, California – part of the Motherlode between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. So many people told me that I *had* to choose, or at least narrow down, my niche. I just can’t! I absolutely love my couples, families, and high school seniors – I simply cannot narrow it down. I love finding the finding the quiet, easy moments amidst the chaos at any session or wedding. Those moments are always my favorite. Always.

A little about me...

I love paper planners, written lists, modern calligraphy, making paper flowers, watercolor, vintage cameras, the smell of old photographs, and chewy candy – especially anything Sour Patch. My to go drinks are Diet Cokes and Gin + Tonics. My favorite vacations always include a beach, and especially one with palm trees. I cherish friends and family, and I am thankful for every moment with them.


A few of my favorite things...

Palm Trees


My Style

My style is classic/photojournalistic. I enjoy capturing the images that are traditional for our

parents and grandparents. Once those are taken care of, we play and have a little fun. I never want your portraits to feel forced or posed. While I will ‘pose’ you, I promise the pose will look natural and relaxed.


My goal with every couple, family, or high school senior is to arrive at their wedding/session feeling more like a friend than as a photographer. I believe that when we get to know each other, the nerves are
gone, and I am able to capture authentic, relaxed, love-filled moments.



The Experience

The light and your connection with each other
guides me during your session. It isn’t uncommon for me to squeak and squeal a bit during a session when I see the light filtering through a tree, or peaking around the corner while you are snuggling or laughing. I LOVE creating images with a bunch of light and while having a ton of fun!


I am pretty darn good at making you feel relaxed in
front of my camera. I might be a little goofy, or silly at times, but I promise it is all to make sure you are relaxed. When you are relaxed, it will show in every frame. Every. Frame.

It is magic I tell ya, magic.
