I’m a San Jose Bay Area family photographer transforming the vibrant, incomparable joy of family life into timeless art for your home.
When I was in college studying toward a history degree, I always felt powerfully drawn to the pictures in our textbooks. Sure, the stories and their impact on humanity were remarkable. But there was something about the photographs that captured my imagination. The simple idea that these breathtaking moments had been frozen in time by an attentive artist with a camera mesmerized me.
But when my daughter smiled at me for the very first time, I realized that some of the most breathtaking moments don’t happen in front of a crowd or end up in history books. They happen right here in our own homes. They decorate our walls. They fill our albums. From the simplicity of annual school photos to the milestones magnificently marked, our family stories are some of the most beautiful pieces of history on this planet! And yours is one I can’t wait to preserve.
Today, as a San Jose family photographer, I fill galleries with images that speak uniquely to who each family is and what they love most. With a sophisticated-yet-sincere style, I can create refined pieces of art that still capture your family’s genuine personality. And best of all, you’ll never have to worry about rowdy kiddos or moments of misbehavior ruining your session. I worked as a middle school teacher for five years, after all, so to say “I can handle anything” might actually be the understatement of the century!
When I’m not laughing with littles during a family session or editing away on my latest gallery, you can probably spot me headed to the beach with my family, hosting a family BBQ, or cranking up the jams for an impromptu kitchen dance party with my kids.
But enough about me! I can’t wait to get to know you and preserve this chapter in your family history through a fun-filled photo session you’ll always treasure. So, let’s begin!
By avoiding trends and opting for timeless sophistication, we can create heirlooms you’ll be thrilled to display forever. Film adds character, depth, and texture while enhancing color and flattering any skin tone. It also invites me to slow down, be more present, and truly engage with moments as they come. This makes it beyond worth the added care and investment the medium demands.
