Welcome!

Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

The Tanaka Family: Sacramento Elk Grove Family Portraits

I haven’t been taking a lot of pictures lately for various reasons, but last month I went out to shoot with this super cute family. It was a refreshing one hour spent that reminded me why I got into photography. I LOVE capturing memories in frames, the feeling and outcome is priceless.

Roseville Punjabi family portraits

Loving the colors in the 2015 edition of the Bains family pictures. It was so great to see them again this year and capture three generations of love and legacy.

Folsom Family Portraits: Dhuggas

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet up with the Dhuggas for their family portraits. It was a drive down for them from Yuba city, but we were able to capture some beautiful images for the family. We hung out in the Old Folsom area, near the bridge and also drove by the abandoned train tracks. Check out the images from the session.

Violet’s Birthday Portraits: Old Sacramento Children Photography

I still remember Amanda and Tim’s big day! I remember walking around the garden, capturing their special moments! A few years later, I got the opportunity to photograph their beautiful baby girl Violet. I was anxious about for this session, for one, I love making memories, and the second, I had only seen her pictures and couldn’t wait to meet miss little Violet in person! She was simply adorable with her big smiles, dimples and big wide eyes. And how could I miss those cute curls! She was a doll!

I had a great time catching up with Amanda and Tim while walking around Old Sacramento with them for Violet’s very first birthday portraits. I was reminded again why I do what I do. Like I said before, I love making memories, especially when I get the opportunity to document life as it evolves.

Happy First Birthday, Violet! You are beautiful and charming just like your parents are!

Baker Beach Family Session : The McDermott Family

This year we met Rayna, David and Morgan at the Baker beach for their annual family session. How can we go wrong with the amazingly clear and sunny day in San Francisco! The view of the Golden Gate bridge made the perfect backdrop. Rayna and David’s little Morgan surprised me this year. We were friends right away! She smiled big this time and she was clearly having fun at the beach. I love the tress at the Baker beach. We walked in to the woods, played with pine cones and got some great shots of the family.

I can’t wait to see what Morgan will be like next year. It is one of my greatest pleasures to watch the families grow while I capture the moments of their lives. I’m sure it will be a new experience next year as Morgan grows and explores a new phase in life.
