Wild Child Photographer

There is no doubt about it, I am a full on boy mama and maintaining things organized around my house is like completing a Rubik's cube. Our days are filled with beautiful messy chaos... at least that's what I keep telling myself!  I never imagined I'd get here...

Photographing life...

Home is where the heart is and this is our home! We are lucky enough to have this little piece of magic in our backyard! Photographing life in Santa Cruz, California offers up lots of beautiful places. Let me tell you that we have been to the boardwalk a dozen times, but this time was very very special. We celebrated our big guy's fifth birthday... and I can't believe it so! He is such a special little human and time has flown by. It feels like just yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time...

What could be better than the magical place on earth? The magical place topped with a food and wine festival that is! Yes, we got to savor some delicious wines all while having the thrills of our lives. Kasen was the bravest here when he chose to ride the cars ride...

The Magic of

Before I continue writing my life out, I want you to why I invest time into sharing. As a Lifestyle photographer in Santa Cruz, I want to be transparent with all my clients about who I am and who they are booking to capture their most treasured memories. I am a mother and a storyteller at heart and my personal photography gives me life all while allowing me to practice my craft. I get to shoot what I want and explore new techniques and tools. I get to be wild and free!

Our next documenting journey took us off to Legoland. Afer making a pit stop to visit Grandpa, we put on our walking shoes and explored this awesome creative park. My oldest son Kasen has recently fallen in love with all things Legos and of course Ninjago so it was pure magic in his eyes. He is a quiet and calm boy, so his way to show emotion is to take it all in and quitelty observe...

I am finally getting some time to share the memories we made last month on our family road trip. Time flies when you are having fun... lol! Have I told you guys that my goal this year is to fully document the story of my kids? It dawned on me as I tried to gather images of my son, that last year I have 56,789 images of clients, and only like 5 of my kids...

New Baby

36 years ago a little baby was born at 9:15 am. That baby was me! I was born in the 80's and my mother probably had no connection to photographers and didn't have the opportunity to capture my life as an infant. What I would give to see the bond and connection she had with me as a little wee one! Fast forward to today...

Easy, Breezy...

So I took a night away from the kiddos and enjoyed an easy day of relaxation to slow down my Mama-brain. It was fabulous to only worry about feeding myself and being able to use two hands while enjoying a meal. Ha, imagine me using both my hands without having to tend to another human. Don't get me wrong, I love my babies, but everyone deserves a little break.  So a girlfriend and I...

RAW MOMENTS

This is reality and one day I hope to wake up knowing I had a full life. I am not comfortable photographing the elderly, but these moments are special and a true part of life. There is nothing glamorous about these images, but they are real and truly represent our time with Grandpa. At least I hope they fully depict the emotional energy of the day...
