College Bound | Pleasanton Senior Photoshoot

I vividly remember my senior year in high school. Here are a few fun facts about how ya girl was living back in the 1992 (Dang, that was a long time ago)

  • I was 16 years old (yep, just a youngin’)

  • Everyday after school, I’d stuff my face with tater tots, turkey sausage and Hostess cake products in an attempt to add weight to my 98 pound 5’5” frame, cuz “boys like em’ thick” and I was anything but.

  • I attended Fremont High School in Oakland, a “Magnet School” where in addition to taking snooze fest classes like math and geometry I attended “The Media Academy” where I got to produce and star in videos, write for the school paper and spend my summers doing cool internships at the local TV station!

  • I broke up with my one and only high school bf (and by broken up, I mean finally mustered up enough self esteem to release myself from a toxic relationship). Hallelujah! 🙌🏽

    Back in my day, a senior photoshoot consisted of a visit to the school cafeteria where a cheesy black velvet sash was draped over your chest and a less than enthusiastic “photographer” snapped your pic.

My how times have changed. For the better!

It was a BLAST photographing this divine young lady. I’m honored that I was selected to capture her final moments in high school before she spreads her wings and heads to college (gulp) out of state.

Jolie, we’re rooting for you!

San Ramon Maternity Portrait Session

And baby makes 3... I’ve been blessed to create headshots, engagement photos, and now maternity images for this amazing couple! I’m always honored when expecting parents choose me to document such a pivotal moment in their lives.

Can’t wait to meet their beautiful baby girl 🖤

I only have one regret with regards to motherhood. See, I never treated MYSELF to beautiful maternity photos. So, when I’m commissioned to create legacy images for new parents, I’m all in.

Every client arrives to my studio with some degree of nervous energy. Sometimes it’s just a few butterflies and other times it’s a monsoon of nerves. The first time you shoot with me, you may arrive with your guard up, because you don’t yet understand that I will “hold your hand” through it all and you’re completely BLOWN AWAY at the beautiful images we capture.

The second time you shoot with me, you’ll start off far more comfortable and confident than the first time and you’ll love your images even more than the first time!

The third time you shoot with me. It’s. Pure. Magic.

Whether it’s your first or your fifth time with me, you never have to wonder if you’re “doing it right.” I’ll do everything in my power to make you feel right at home. I’ll also pose you down to your fingertips.

In a nutshell… I’ve got you!
