Me……hmmmmmmm a little about me……….okay here goes………I live in Lincoln, California and have a studio in Roseville, California, which is about 45 minutes from the state capitol, Sacramento. I started off my career in the dental field. I plugged along “liking” my job and found my niche at a dental office where I worked with the same staff for close to 15 years. I fell in love with photography shortly after I had my first baby. I will never forget sitting on the couch watching the newborn photographer in both awe and envy. We left and I thought to myself, “what a fantastic job she has……..” I found myself constantly wanting to capture all of my baby’s moments with our cheap point and shoot digital camera. We were going through AA batteries like crazy so I told my hubs I’d like to get something nicer. One thing led to another and shortly after getting my Nikon D90 I signed up for photography classes.
After taking my first few classes I had this crazy creative fire within me. It was like this incredible addiction to learn as much as I could, as quickly as I could. That addiction has led me here and continues to burn inside of me all the time. I am hopelessly in love with all things photography. My poor husband has to endure my distracted mind and I love him for it. I ended my career in the dental field this last May. I know I can go back to it if need be, but for now my heart and soul is anything and everything to do with my business. I no longer go to an 8-5 job “liking” it. I make my own hours, spend more time at home with my children doing what I “love.”
My latest venture is teaching. I offer 1:1 mentoring as well as teaching alongside Stormy Solis and Jodi Lynn Buckles for The Dream Makers Workshop. I'm dipping my toe into travel photography as well and could not be more excited to start this next chapter.
