camera Nikon D850, Nikon Z7, Nikon D700

For the last 20 years, I've had incredible opportunities to explore our beautiful world and capture captivating moments with my camera. From a range of high-profile clients like the NBA, Tequila Patron, Michelin, and more – their confidence in me has instilled an understanding of professionalism that is only further strengthened by working locally on family portraits, corporate headshots or shooting my personal favorite, youth sports events! Wherever your heart takes you; whatever images it dreams up - chasing those visions have been part of this exciting journey for me… And let's just say I am loving every minute! From dreams of professional baseball, and pursuing my degree in college to becoming a Paul Mitchell Hairdresser and Educator all led to my creative passion for photography, I have taken an unconventional journey that has led me directly to where I need and want to be. Being able to provide joy by making people look spectacular is something special - it's not just an experience, but a lifetime memory!

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography by watching and helping my mom in her own photo developing studio at home. I then went to school for graphic design and learned the technical aspects of the trade in various photography classes. Later on, I developed it, even more, when I started my own lifestyle blog where I get to work with brands creating content accompanied by professional photos.

What do you love about your job?

I love creating! The process from beginning to end requires creative play, I get to make art pieces (my photos!) by combining a special prop, a background or place with certain angles or many other elements. It’s fun!

What are some of your favorite places in San Diego to take photographs?

The beach is always a great place, there are many of them around San Diego, so it makes it for a big open canvas. About 2 hours before the sunset is my most favorite time too. When it’s not the beach, I love finding new areas, new spaces or interiors that are modern and have a great sense of style to them.
