I’m a bi-coastal photographer, from CA to PA, and fan of unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lenses-editorial-style moments … oh, and a t-shirts and jeans.
Summer in Lake Tahoe means sandy toes and warm breezes while the snow slowly melts from the mountaintops. Being a kid in Lake Tahoe is full of exploring and adventuring. It’s an easy place to forget those screentime addictions. I love the way this session really embodies the carefree spirit of childhood!
Everyone, meet my pal Romyn! He’s four, he’s a comedian, a ball of energy and has more hilarious facial expressions than any kid I know! He showed me how he flosses, raced with cousins and we share a love for sour watermelon gummies! I was lucky enough to spend time with him and his family […]
When Lucy proposed the idea of shooting their portraits on their newly acquired piece of Nevada land, no setting sounded better. “There’s not much except fences, but we’d love to celebrate this new chapter by doing portraits here,” she said. My google maps search gave me an idea of the setting, but my jaw dropped as […]
There was so much heart and love in this session, I should just let the joy speak to you directly… but I’ll give some story because who doesn’t love a little story. The Damiano Family was wrapping up their time in Tahoe and jumping at the chance to head abroad for a few months before […]
With hundreds of thousands of visitors to Tahoe every year, there are certain states that I have fell in love simply by the families who come here representing them.

Lauren and her family moved to the area last year. She popped up on instagram and I fell in love with her work, so I reached out to welcome her to the area. Since we’re both moms, photographers and make little time for ourselves, we decided to meet up and get pedicures – the […]
A trend I’m seeing a lot in the past few years is families booking extended family sessions. Many times, the last portrait you have of your entire family is from a wedding. This family shared that same story and they decided to change that while enjoying a beautiful day together in Tahoe. Including extended family […]
The winter “off season” means a slowed pace and more time for exploring. This place, Lake Tahoe, is one of the most photographed locations on the planet for a reason. That’s a made up claim – I’m simply going by the amount of people pulled over taking pictures any time I’m driving. There are a lot! […]
If this session doesn’t make you smile, you need to go do some soul searching. When I arrive to a newborn shoot, there are a few loose plans but really, I like to let things just happen. This was a slam dunk example of how letting big sister do her thing and jump in when […]
Nesting at home during those early days with a newborn is a precious and fleeting period of time. The freshly made nursery, awaiting baby’s arrival. The sweet decor that, let’s be honest, is really for us mom’s to have as a sanctuary of baby love. The Hoffman’s brought baby #2 home and this is […]
