Family Photographer
1 Member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association - WPJA

While I was in college, I was selected to work in the White House Photo Office during the Clinton administration. This experience taught me the delicate balance between capturing images and responding to ever-changing situations.

After graduating college, I worked as a staff photographer at The Contra Costa Times (California), Fort Worth Star Telegram (Texas) and The Palm Beach Post (Florida). Being a newspaper photographer in different parts of the country taught me the importance of preparation, flexibility and having a sense of humor. No matter where I lived, I learned to be open-minded.

My family photography work naturally followed my wedding photography business as clients started having babies. Through my wedding photography, I have grown close with many clients and they feel like family. I have continued capturing these growing families over the years, and for some, have become their “family documentarian.”
