I started my humble home studio in April of 2008 in Aptos, CA but now serve clients in the Monterey Bay Area as well as the Central Valley. I'm a member of NAPCP (National Association of Professional Photographers) since 2012. A graduate of Baby as Art newborn portraiture class summer 2011. This April 2017 marked my 9th year serving my wonderful clients of the Monterey Bay Area and Central Valley.
My style whether it be photos on the beach or in a more studio setting can be described as classic candid captures with a touch of vintage appeal. I tend to choose and suggest wardrobe for my clients that allow your family and baby to be the focal point.
My ulitmate goal is to have families look back at each photo and remember what mattered most...your babies face or tiny little hands holding yours and the connection and emotions of being together at a specific moment in time. The absence of loud colors and backgrounds allows these memories to flood to your mind and bring a feeling of heart warming nostalgia.
