Before COVID-19 kept us all at home, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take photos at the AWARE CT Event in Westport, CT. Hosted at the Pop’t Art Gallery, this year’s event was featured in Westport Lifestyle Magazine, where some of my photos were featured in the issue. This year, the event partnered […]

This session was done in Fresno, California (my home city!) with my dear friend, Ashley and her new baby boy, Dash. We did her session in her new home and wanted to focus on the babies nursery. This is her first child so it was very special to get to do these sweet portraits of […]

All the sweetness today in this blog post. These are my dear friends, The Middletons.

Elopements are a great option when tying the knot and I’m excited to share this dreamy winter wedding styled shoot that I dreamed up a few January’s ago. Did I mention, I’m behind on blogging?! 🙂  I had been dying to photograph a wedding again at Gallaher Mansion in Norwalk, Connecticut as it’s seriously an […]

It’s hard not to love Ari Laing of The Well Seasoned Studio. She’s witty, cool and one heck of an amazing chef. We became “insta-friends” at the beginning of this year and after lots of DM’s and LOL’s, I knew we just had to work together! Needless to say, I was SO excited when she […]

A perfect September day for a dreamy engagement session in Newport, Rhode Island. Ally and Nick are Massachusetts locals who live by the bustling city of Boston and summer at the Cape and Newport, RI.

I'm a born and raised California girl who loves the sunshine, ocean air and modern vibes. I have a degree in Interior Design (aka: a million Art classes taken in college) and have a true passion for Art in all forms. As a travel obsessed gal who recently moved across the country with her hubby and two pups, I've been having a blast photographing people, places and things that move me and have a unique story to share. My hubby, Cameron, is my second shooter on my team and we would love to meet you and document your big day! I am Connecticut based but love any and every excuse to travel! I can't wait to meet you and hear your story!

We Do Photos Right.
