Visual Identity | Von Stieff Medical Group

I recently had the privilege to work with local doctor's office, Von Stieff Medical Group, to create images for their website. I was thrilled to see the many ways Roadside Multimedia incorporated the photos into the bright, clean design!

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... 

Star Wars 501st Legion Photography | Northern California

It's not everyday you get asked to photograph a Star Wars Scout Trooper in the redwoods... 

As described on the 501st mission page, "Some [Star Wars] fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to be action figures." My good friend, Shaun Pugmire, is one of those more dedicated fans and now he has these Endor-esque portraits to show off his imperial costume and bring it to life!

So much fun! Thanks to Shaun and my husband, Philip, for this behind the scenes snippet! 

Portrait Photography | Pleasanton, California

It's officially Summer! No better way to kick-off this sweet season than with a sun-filled shoot.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Miss Kym Hoheisel, a student I've been happily mentoring for nearly two years.

We had a great time chasing the early evening light together and creating portraits that are as radiant as the lady pictured. View and enjoy!
