I love to laugh. Smiling is my favorite. I adore my family! I enjoy sitting back and watching people more than being the center of attention. I have always loved kids, from the time I had my first babysitting job at the age of 10. I love the smell of warm summer evenings in the midwest, where I grew up. I love California just as much, and have considered it home for over 20 years. I am the oldest of three kids and am extremely proud of my two younger brothers and their families. My boys (those handsome guys up there, who are now 13 and 20) give me more joy than I ever thought possible. My husband is my rock, and he's pretty cute too. We've been married for 21 years. I love french fries and chocolate shakes. I love my simple life here in the San Francisco Bay area, and enjoy photographing clients all over this part of the world. It is so beautiful! I look forward to working with you and providing you with portraits that are not only lovely to look at, but delight and warm your heart as well.
