After moving from the Bay Area to Long Beach for college, my photography journey began when I got lucky with a really good Groupon deal, and I got my first camera to take photos for a university club I was part of (shoutout to all my PAC people if you're reading this). I really would have never predicted that I would ever call myself a photographer, but I owe a bunch of thanks to that college club for helping me find out that it's one of my biggest passions in life.
It's hard to express how rewarding this job is - from meeting your little ones after capturing your maternity photos, or cheering you on when you pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate your graduation, to helping with your proposal then watching you walk down the aisle. I mean it when I say I treat it as the greatest honor to get to document your most important moments, and I take every photo with the intention that you'll be showing them to your future grandkids someday.
When I'm not taking photos, you'll most likely find me outside - some of my fave activities are hiking, scuba diving, and long boarding. Another one of my professional aspirations is to work in ocean conservation! If you're a fellow outdoor adventure-lover, you've come to the right place.
