I like adventure and exploration, including meeting new people, seeing new things and experiencing new cultures. I took so many road trips with my family in my childhood, and in retrospect, that is what formed part of who I am now.
Photography has become an outlet for this passion - I enjoy capturing emotions, moments and beauty that I encounter.
I believe in the power of photographs to move people. It is always my wish to craft work that can touch someone's heart.

1st Birthday | Kae | Oakland, CA
I photographed Kae’s mother when she was pregnant with her. Then, I was so fortunate to capture Kae at 5 months, and this time for her 1st birthday with her family. She is growing up so fast, and becoming a beautiful girl Happy 1st birthday Kae!!
