Iā€™m an Orange County based lifestyle photographer, born and raised in southern CA with a love for capturing the intimate moments of family life in beautiful images that can be cherished for years. I discovered my love of photography in high school after much influence from my dad, who gave me my first camera at age 12. From then on, I was hooked. I began with wedding photographing and have transitions to my true passion of family and newborn portraiture over the last three years.

My love for newborn photography started while I worked for a surrogacy agency in southern CA, owned and operated by my amazing mother (yup, we keep it in the family;). Along with it being rewarding to help families grow, I was fortunate to photograph several of the happy babies born through the gift of surrogacy. It was then I found my niche: newborn lifestyle photography. My intention is to capture those sweet and tender, real life moments between you and your newborn in an artistic, timeless style. I hope my work inspires you or simply makes you smile. If you have more questions, please connect with me. I look forward to hearing from you!
