I am all about family. Having grown up in a large family being the last of seven, I now get to be auntie to 10 wonderful nieces & nephews. They were my first subjects when I got my first camera back in high school and I’ve been dong my best to document as much as I could of them over the years, which my sisters are grateful for. Being from a large family, meant we didn’t always get every memory of ours growing up captured because, let’s be honest… that was the least of my parents’ worries. However, having lost our only brother in an accident when he was only 22, certainly made us think differently about pictures and what they really meant to us after that. Years later, my Dad passed suddenly & my niece as well…. so I take my job very seriously knowing the real value behind what I provide my clients now as you could imagine.
That said! On a lighter note! I love my job! I love working with babies! And I can’t believe I’ve had the pleasure of handling over 500 newborns over the years now.
One day, when the time is right… I will hopefully have some babies of my own! But until then, I’m working on some other goals of mine at the moment which includes building a container home on 10 acres I just purchased in Browns Valley, CA (2 hours from Napa near Grass Valley). Originally I wanted to become an architect, so this is a huge passion of mine that I’m determined to see through! So wish me luck!
