Editorial Feature | Compass Magazine - Regional Parks Foundation

One of my most active shoots yet was running ahead of a hundred happy hikers participating in a Multicultural Wellness Walk back in September. As it often happens at these kinds of events, I ended up learning just as much as the participants... and getting just as much exercise.

I'm grateful to live in a place that honors diversity and respects nature. Photographing this event for Compass Magazine was, quite literally, a breath of fresh air.

A few of my favorite shots from the day outdoors... 

Event Photography | Yelp East Bay

So... this is an Event Photography and Personal life-update post, all-in-one! 

I'm thrilled to now be onboard at Yelp as a Marketing Assistant for the Yelp East Bay community! If you know me well, you know that food and community are dear to my heart and this combined with my interest in marketing propelled me towards this unique step in my career.

At my first Yelp Elite Event, I was given the chance to use my specialization in photography to document the evening and share the images with the Yelpers. Here are a few of the images to give you a peek into this new and exciting venture. Hope to share more with you down the road!

Event Photography | Opening Service at CrossWinds Church

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I moved to California to further pursue making an impact through ministry. We were led to an incredible place, CrossWinds Church in Pleasanton, California, where we both work and serve.

CrossWinds recently celebrated moving into a space that they have been preparing for through prayer, fundraising and construction for over 15 years! The new location is like no other - a property previously owned by dairy farmers surrounded by creeks and fields. Reclaimed barn wood covers the walls and old Freisman Dairy bottle caps adorn the words RESTORE displayed at the Children's Ministry classrooms. It's an amazing place with an even more amazing story.

The first Sunday services took place on May 3rd and I had the opportunity to document the day. See the joy-filled images below!

Higher Education Photography | Liberty University

I recently had the opportunity to head back to my old work-turf at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia to photograph their biggest event of the year, Commencement. Many students ended college to start another exciting chapter and I'm happy I could be present to bear witness to that.

Below are a few of my favorite images from the day. I really enjoyed hunting for details and graduate's emotional expressions!
