• Welcome to my little corner of the photography world! I am a Natural Light, Lifestyle photographer in beautiful Okinawa Japan. I specialize in black & white photography while having a love affair with bold color. It is my hope that my style of story telling will preserve your memories in an artistic way that you will cherish for a lifetime. Life is Sweet- Capture it

What Started It All

This Spring I offered to capture my good friend and her little girls close to Mother’s Day. Now having my own daughter I see how Boys & Girls are different in a whole new way. One thing I have learned (from observation & experience) is Girls really respond well to intentional time. What a treat it was for these girls to dress up and look so stunning along side their amazing Mama. It was a pleasure to capture these sweet candid moments for ALL of them. I always hope that my images are cherished by generations to follow… and these almost seem a little bit more powerful. These are future Mothers and Wives to the next generation. Thank You for allowing me to be the one to capture these moments for you!

 

 

 

Summer is Almost Over

Summer is almost over… and it’s a shame I am JUST now blogging this session. I would say that May/June is probably my favorite time to shoot in the summer. Here in Sacramento it is pretty warm, things aren’t too dead and the sunsets nice and late for us to get some really great sessions completed during the week days.

This session was a blast. I love the challenge of walking into a session with a brand new family! It is nice to meet and exceed their expectations and give them images they just can’t live without.  We had a great time together and I really enjoyed their kiddos. I am looking forward to capturing them again in the future!

 

Lifestyle Cake Smash

This little guy has two other siblings and we’ve used this space on the wall for each of their cake smashes… but this time I had another idea as well. The first spot wasn’t going as smoothly as planned and he sure got a second wind when the sugar hit his system :). He was hammin’ it up on the table. Before all of this we actually went outside and got a few images for “Mothers Day”… just my friend and her kids. Such sweet moments, on their lovely property. I couldn’t help myself to get some memories around the house too. I just love how it all come together and how organic this whole shoot was, this is why I like Lifestyle Photography so much!

 

K & L Engagement | Sacramento Photographer

Oh this couple was a dream to work with. I am SO looking forward to their wedding. I bet they will be even more in love and giddy then! We went to a little jewel of a spot in Davis and it was fun to shoot something new. I haven’t been to this spot in years, it fit their needs and wants perfectly… and look at the gorgeous sun we got at the end!?!? Love It.
