It is all about you. The focus of my photography is all about you, your loved ones, and the compelling images that you want to preserve and treasure all your life. Whether it is a wedding, an event or a portrait, I am there to record your most important and precious moments.
Over the past five years, I have been asked to photograph special events such as Wet Paint, Plein Air, Vintage House Soiree, and Cottage and Garden tours for the League for Historic Preservation. Besides being on the Boards of the League, KQED public televison and the Foundation for San Francisco Architectural Heritage, photographing for non-profits events has been my way of giving back to the community.
I started photography by documenting the evolution of my own garden at Carolina Cottage in Sonoma. Reflecting my South Carolina roots, I created a Southern garden with forty-one rose bushes, ten azalea bushes and one stately dogwood tree. This garden project led to my love of the camera and to creative expression and joy through photography.
A 25-year Sonoma resident, I trained in the style of a photojournalist with professional photographer Ron Zak, a Fulbright scholar, well known in Sonoma Valley for his humorous posters for the annual Sonoma Valley wine auction. I also studied portrait photography at a session at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.
With a MBA degree, I understand the importance of customer service, showing up on time and delivering the results as promised. I thrive to connect with my clients so it is a win-win outcome for all. My business experience is balanced with a strong eye for creative expression. I photograph in a combination of styles: formal/traditional, photojournalistic.
With artistry and skill, my goal is to record your story as you would like it to be told.
