I am a woman, daughter, sister, teacher and mother. My story is my story. Yours is yours. Each story speaks of a much bigger narrative. They are all beautiful. Photography is an outlet to capture these beauties near or far, today or tomorrow. Whether the story is a promise of love for a lifetime, a wedding unfolding, a family moment, a grand event, a birth or a baby, an everyday moment, etcetera, I just love being a part of it all.
I have been an active photographer for almost thirty years. I picked up my first camera before the age of ten and was studying the subject in elementary school. After years of traveling and experiencing people and life, I became captivated by how photography captures the human spirit. After pursuing communication, fine art, graphic design and photography at Azusa Pacific University and The Pacific Northwest College of Art and becoming a mother of three, I embarked on a professional journey. I am continually amazed by the stories we tell and long to continue to be a part of telling other’s stories for today’s and future generations.
