Los Angeles portrait photographer

Hello and welcome to my site!

I am portrait and event photographer based in Los Angeles.

Growing  up, I fell in love with the emotional power of photography while leafing through my parents' copies of National Geographic magazine. Later I discovered Vanity Fair, Glamour, Vogue and the incredible editorial portraits being created by the great names in fashion and advertising. And as I studied photography and started shooting friends and family, I wanted to find ways to bring magazine-style photoshoots and beautiful, creative portraits to every day people.

In my late thirties, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet, and walked away from a high stress, unfulfilling career in sales to launch my own business. I realized that if I was going to feel that stressed out and work that hard, it should be for myself. 

Today, I combine my love of beauty, my life-coaching skills and a deep desire to empower others to express their own excellence, to create moments in time that leave my clients looking and feeling absolutely amazing. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro at being photographed or you’re someone who hates to be in front of the camera, I'll create a safe, nurturing space where you can show off your style and personality in unique and captivating ways. 


I believe you deserve to work with a photographer who will spend the time to get to know you, and understand how you want to showcase your story to the world. I believe you deserve to love how you look in your photos. And I believe the experience of being photographed should be both fun and make you feel like you are the most important person in the room. 


So I invite you to book a session with me, I promise you’ll love the results. It might even change the way you see yourself.
