I have always loved storytelling. And writing. And reading. When I first started using my mom's camera as a little kid, I was hooked. In high school, I took my first photography class. When my husband bought a camera for a trip to Alaska in 2001, I borrowed it and started seriously studying all aspects of photography - from Actor's Headshots, to Glamour with Dennis Kirkland who did images of Marilyn Monroe in the sheets. An LA Times photographer, I studied with taught a street portraiture class and encouraged me to open a Studio shooting kids and families. So in 2006 I opened the studio in the French Quarter. For fun, I love to travel and my hobby is street shooting where ever a plane or cruise ship will take me. As an animal lover, my dogs are usually pressed into model service. I love good food and cooking and music. And kissing babies. But then, who doesn't?
Photographs of people should tell a story about them and show some of their soul and being. That is what I want to create. That story about you and those you love. I want to evoke feelings of love in my photographs. And history. Your history in the making to be preserved for the future. A pet, a new baby, your sexy boudoir images, Your family at a milestone time, kids growing up. Or just because you have a vision
Come and visit me in my beautiful boutique studio in Woodland Hills and let me show you why I want to be your first choice person to photograph you, your family and pets, your event or whatever you might need for your business. Let me show you what good photography is and how to tell the difference with lighting, and paper, and finishing.
My studio is unique and designed to make my clients feel pampered; I go on location too. Every session I do is designed just for you, my client. I never want to make people feel they are going to an image factory. There is a reason the kids I shoot want to come back. I make it fun for everyone.
The products I use for your images are archival - they are made to last from albums to frames to canvas; I use fine art papers for announcements and cards. My images for albums are coated to protect them so you can wipe off a finger print or a tear.
I invite you to call me, make an appointment to see for yourself. Let's plan out your session - beach, park, your home or my studio or something on my list of places. Let me help you preserve your personal history in a beautiful way you can treasure it forever.
