I have a passion for taking pictures that started when I was about 5 years old and got my first camera (a Kodak 110) and never turns off. When I have a day off, I take pictures for fun. When I'm on vacation, I pack my camera gear. I work every day to get better at my craft and to learn more about the ever-changing world of photography. I believe that we can learn from the quality and technique of old style film shooting and at the same time embrace the convenience and cutting-edge changes that technology has brought to the table. My goal is to get you the amazing images that you will treasure forever and to make the process as easy as possible for you while providing access to high quality digital images as well as prints. 

My original, and still shared passion, is writing. I started off my career as a writer for a newspaper, that I eventually ended up being the editor for. It was at that position that I began considering photography as a viable career and accepted a few offers for freelance gigs. I love to combine my two greatest loves in life by blogging, producing articles, and helping mentor others both online and in person. 

I live in NorthernCalifornia with my fur babies Milly and John Hancock. We all enjoy hiking, swimming, travelling, cooking, entertaining, and basically ANYTHING that is done outdoors. We look forward to meeting you and helping you to forever capture the moments that truly make life worth living!
