Rob the guitarist

I recently shot promotional photos for Rob Watson, who is an accomplished guitarist and guitar teacher. See below for a few of my favorites from this beautiful day strumming and walking in a park.


Walden Pond

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
– Henry David Thoreau

Last weekend I visited Massachusetts where, on top of spending Mother’s Day with my mom for the first time in several years, I met my newborn niece. I also enjoyed a cool misty day with my dad wandering Walden Pond. I can see why Thoreau wrote as he did while living here.


Mesa Refuge Details

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Mesa Refuge, a peaceful writers retreat in scenic Point Reyes. Check out these photos for some instant R & R.



Stephanie: Goddess

One of the most challenging and creatively satisfying photo shoots I did recently was a portrait session involving three distinct looks. Each look had a different aesthetic, from the clothing, accessories, hair and makeup, to the mood.

The session was with one my favorite clients, Stephanie. This is her first look, which I called Goddess. The curls, neutral tones, and simple but flawless makeup were a perfect combination.


Keilani Pilates

The more photography gigs I take on, the more in tune I become to not only my creative skills, but also my interests. A fast growing niche for me is health and fitness photography. I shot these photos for Keilani Pilates last fall.
