What The Actual Fuck

Last night as I was getting ready for bed I noticed some body sensations that demanded my attention. I unconsciously went to reach for my phone to distract myself. I immediately reflected back on a blog I read earlier in the day, by my extremely talented and...

My New Clarity-Get Ready This Is Exciting!

I am back! Well, it's not that I really went away, I just took a break from working full time. Over the past two years I have been focussing on healing my stage iv metastatic breast cancer. It has taken me on the most incredible journey. It has physically taken me to...

Shenanigans with Kate

You know what I love? Photographing happy babies and happy parents! This squad was nothing short of a dream to photograph. Not sure what is in that mug but seems like some magic happy potion from Harry Potter. I met Dan and Kelly when I joined their Burning Man camp...

The Intimacy of Burning Man

The intimacy of Burning Man started immediately after I was invited to join an amazing service camp named Cafe Surprise.  Lucky for me, I got a last minute ticket to BM(only 15 mins after I reached out on FB looking for one, thanks Nan!). I immediately started getting...

The Raw Truth at 8:00am….Really!

I was coming home after dropping off my daughter at school and heard Terry Crews being interviewed on the radio. I knew he was on Brooklyn Nine Nine ( I have never watched but my hubby and son love it),  I knew he was a comedian and the Old Spice guy. Other than that...

Angelo Turns 1! {family photographer Oakland}

I had the pleasure of photographing Angelo on his first birthday! I have been photographing him since he was in mom's belly. He has so much personality. He was so friendly with me and interested in everything going on. He didn't want to miss a thing. He was just...
