About me...

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still..."

Somedays, I have to pinch myself when I realize that I get to spend my life telling people's stories through my images. My passion is taking life's beautiful, one of a kind, intimate moments and holding them still in images that you can hold onto forever. 

I am not your run-of-the-mill photographer. My goal is always to capture moments, not poses... And so, it'd seem strange taking up this section by telling you all about my photographic endeavors...

About how I stumbled onto photography quite by accident - involving a dear friend, a camera phone and a blog…  But, upon picking up my first camera, it was love at first click...

About how I failed photography class in high school...

About how I've learned to see photography as more than just an art form - but as the art of observation - finding something beautiful in an ordinary place...  

Or about how I've come to find that photography has very little do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them… 

And more importantly, how people are the reason that I do what I do - because usually, each family that I meet, each couple that I photograph, become friends. Friends whose unique personalities I have the honor of capturing- each smile, each tear, the quiet, private moments, the space filled with laughter...

But - I figured that might bore the ever-living daylights out of you…

So, let me tell you about ME…

I love cake. A lot. 

I grew up in Asia - it changed the way I view the world.

Music moves me.  Sometimes to tears. Sometimes to really embarrassing dance moves.

I absolutely hate to have my picture taken. Ironic, eh?

There's a picture of my adorable puppy somewhere on this site. Best of luck finding it. :)

I may be addicted to painting my nails. 

I am most certainly addicted to chapstick - as I type, I have 4 tubes of Burts Bees sitting in front of me. It's kind of a problem.

I have a degree in Counseling. Not in Photography. And I'm constantly amazed and how well those two things work together.

I sniff most cleaning products and all shampoos or body products before I buy them - I'm the girl standing in the deodorant aisle, opening up every one and sniffing…  or unscrewing the cap of every laundry detergent before I make my choice. I'm not ashamed of this. 

I thrive in high stress situations - which is one of the many reasons I adore wedding photography.

I photograph weddings very differently now that I've been a bride myself. 

I miss my long hair. Today. Tomorrow I'll probably vow to never grow out my hair again…

And as for photography - well, I love it. I come alive behind the lens of a camera. I picked up my first "professional camera" 10 years ago and have never looked back. My grandpa always told me, "Love what you do, and you'll never work a day in your life…"  I am blessed beyond words to be able to do what I love - capturing people's memories - altering their lives by holding it still.
