When I was in high school, my yearbook classroom had photographs by Ansel Adams lining the room, right up near the ceiling. Whenever I was lost in thought, I looked up. They were the most beautiful photographs of what seemed to be these fantastical places, with giant mountains and tall waterfalls, and the play of light versus dark in those black and white images was mesmerizing. Even though I had no idea where those places were (at the time), I wished to go there. I wished to make something as beautiful as those images. My love for black and white photography was born.

Adams' work didn't just influence my photography, but my way of thinking about our natural world. My mother had taught us about recycling, but only in a minimal way. It wasn't until I lived  in Portland, Oregon that I experienced what real eco-consciousness was. Here was the fantastical places I had always hoped were real. A coastal rainforest, the Pacific Ocean, waterfalls, mountains, and sand dunes were all within a two hour drive. They weren't Adams' places, they were mine and appreciated so much that there was no question that I would do everything I could to conserve them.

My mission

When my husband and I moved to Fresno in 2010, I started my photography business. Right away, it was important for two of my strongest personal values to be the foundation. First, to be as eco-conscious as possible. To be so near the beauty of Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, rivers, desert and the California coast makes me happy to do what I can to preserve what I view as another paradise.  After baby steps each year, I am proud of the high quality and sustainable products I offer you, like wood prints (they plant a tree with every order), and recycled eco-frames. We have succeeded in being 99% paperless, as well.

Second, that everyone deserves high quality photography services, no matter your budget. Your wedding and your family is just as important as anyone else's. If you need it, we can work together to create a custom wedding package or discuss a payment plan to match your portrait needs.

What you can expect

Images of love, personality, and beauty. Natural posing, candid shots of laughter and fun. High quality albums, archival eco-friendly framing, wood and glass prints you won't find anywhere else. Friendship, and a family photographer for life.
