My photography journey began over 20 years ago with the simple desire to create a business where I could do what do what I loved as an artist and raise a family. That passion and desire soon became a successful business venture serving over 80-100 weddings and events per year. My photography training and experience began under the tutelage of my late husband who was a brilliant photographer. As we grew and expanded, I continued my training through Professional Photographers of America, West Coast School in San Diego and eventually served as President for Professional Photographers of Orange County. I was very fortunate to learn from some of the best masters in the industry. As a born creative, I discovered that my artistry could be expressed through various mediums including photography, makeup artistry, writing, public speaking and entrepreneurship. I eventually wrote a book and became a published author and speaker after surviving a life crisis in 2007. I love capturing life’s precious moments and helping others celebrate their love of life. It is an honor and privilege to have served so many couples and families in my career and I am especially excited for those who have been blessed with a second chance at love as I have after losing my beloved husband. Life is a continual journey and at the end, the only thing that really matters is love.
