Thank you for visiting my blogsite!

I believe that everyone has a unique story, and I believe that this story always shows through in a portrait. Through my lens, I will forever capture your story, your memories, your dreams. Specializing in children & family portraiture, senior photography and modern glamour & boudoir, I'm a natural light photographer from Orange County, California. I hope you stay awhile and take a look around. Simply click on any of the photos below to see the whole blog post.
