That's what we think at least, and we want to honor that. Professional studio portraiture celebrates you and your family. Images of your family in your home will bring to life the love you share and the adventures you have together. And when you walk by them everyday, you will be reminded of the joy and love you have for the ones who make your world go around. Our goal is to make those images more and more valuable to you with every year that passes.
When professional imagery is printed and designed to coordinate with your home and decor, all of sudden YOU are your art. An investment so worth it, you'll wonder how you could have ever lived without it. Especially when your little ones grow and change before your eyes. Remembering those grins, giggles and the looks that are oh-so-them, will make you want to grip time tight and never let it go.
They grow too darn fast!
I know how fast time flies because my own amazing family started here in Orange County 30 years ago! I am married to my best friend and we have 4 wonderful children, 2 girls and 2 boys. They really make me the proudest mama. We love the outdoors and spend our time snow skiing, dirt biking, jet skiing on the lake, and tackling endless home remodeling projects. I'm really a simple girl and a homebody at heart. But, I also have wanderlust... endlessly daydreaming about exploring new places with my camera in tow. Photographing families is my dream job and think I am the luckiest girl in the world to do what I love every day. The magic of freezing time through my lens has captivated me for my whole life. Photography chose me many years ago and has never let me go. I am passionate about art and art history, painting, family traditions and old things made new. I'm obsessed with European architecture (I grew up in Switzerland!) and clean, sophisticated interior design. You can be sure that I always have a sparkling clean kitchen, go barefoot, and could eat thin crust pizza, Swiss chocolate and drink a diet coke (or two!) every day.
I would love to be your family photographer! I have photographed hundreds of Southern California families for almost 20 years. I live for the in-between moments, the crooked toothless grins, the butterfly kisses and the extra tight group hugs. I want your children to see their portrait on your wall and know how much they are loved and how special they are, and I want you to always remember how it felt when they snuggled in your lap, held your hand tight, and wrapped their little arms around your neck.
Thank you for considering me to photograph your family.
I would love to chat with you about how we can create some memory making magic together.
I can't wait to photograph you!
Creativity fuels the soul.
Make life joyful.
Treasure your life's story.
Be passionate and determined.
Never give up on your dreams.
walks on the beach ... old family recipes ... cozy spaces... wildflowers ... crisp white clouds on a bright blue sky ... comfort foods ... a house full of laughter and chatter ... the morning sun in my kitchen ... old photographs that tell stories ... freshly bathed babies in pjs ... the smell of fresh rain ... mornings on the lake ... family dinners around my kitchen table ... family road trips ... and my adorable wheaten terrier
