All of my clients want the same thing.  Beautiful, timeless images, the ability to preserve and display them along with the ability to SHARE them online.  For this reason, we provide digitals suitable for online sharing with friends and family with every purchased image.

something made to share


It has been a long process to find materials that not only look great, feel great...and stand the test of time and I'm so happy to provide this service for my clients.  I'm not merely doing the design work, I am providing albums and heirloom pieces that are only available to professional photographers.  It's quality you can feel.

Heirloom albums are the perfect way to preserve your images and enjoy them for generations. Choose from a variety of sizes and cover materials to create the perfect keepsake for your family.

Once you bring a child into your home, everything that used to seem like a normal decorative object...can suddenly seem like a safety hazard (I see you, coffee table corners). For this reason, I offer a variety of 'earthquake-friendly' glass-free and lightweight wall art options.

Decorate your home with beautiful fine art prints. Mounted on matte board and professionally framed, these prints are meant to be enjoyed for a lifetime.

The high-res digital bundle includes a set of 4x6 prints and a crystal USB in an heirloom box, premiere video, and a custom mobile app so you can share everywhere you go, in person, and on social media.

Most families want the digital files from their session, but the worst thing that can happen is to make an investment in professional portraits and have them end up collecting dust on a USB in your desk drawer.  I incentivize my clients to purchase high quality art pieces that stand the test of time by discounting the accompanying digital files.

Perfect for newborn sessions, the Keepsake Box comes with a select number of matted prints that can be displayed on an easel, hung on the wall or given as gifts. This gorgeous box can also be used for those special mementos like the hospital bracelets and hats, or the locks from babies first haircut.

This guide is designed to be a starting point.

something beautiful.

I waited 36 years to hear the word


"it was all happening just as fast as everyone had promised."

Of course, I posted that proud moment online as soon as it happened.

It was all happening just as fast as everyone had promised.

A friend from across the country replied: "Just wait until she says,
"I love you."
In that moment, my heart stopped.
I realized that in a few short months, this beautiful moment would be ancient history. 

It was all happening just as fast as everyone had promised.

As a mother and a formally trained professional photographer, I believe that life's milestones deserve to be honored, treasured, and preserved...not only for you, but for your children to share with their children.

The studio is located at The Arsenal, a bohemian artist's enclave in Benicia, California. Rich in history and artistic inspiration, The Arsenal is best described as a photographer's dream. The studio and gallery boast 30-foot ceilings, with huge windows throughout. A selection of well-curated props and furnishings are used within the luminous space but photographic possibilities extend beyond the walls of the primary studio, providing endless variations in photographic styling.  Simply put...there is no single place in the San Francisco Bay Area where you can go for a photo session and get so much variety in one session.
