Hi there! I am so happy we found each other! So now that you've found me, let me tell you a little about myself!  First off, I’m a total family girl!  I have a big Latino family who loves to just be together and laugh and eat!  I’m married to a great man who supports me in all I do and we have two rambunctious, curious, handsome boys who absolutely keep us on our toes! I absolutely love to laugh; it’s my favorite! I believe in being kind and smile at anyone, even strangers. I’m a total carbaholic.  I’m completely drawn to the color blue.  And I love love love to sing! But above it all, at my core, I am and will always be a child of God.

So what got me into photography? Well, I'm glad you asked!  It seems anymore that life goes by too fast and one day melts into the next. And so I wanted a nice camera to take pictures of our son (who was 3 at the time) in all his toddler glory and capture those little details that so easily get left behind as life goes on.  Well, my husband surprised me with a nice pro camera for my birthday and, I'll be honest, it intimidated me!  All those buttons and gadgets... But I practiced on any and all who would let me!  And slowly I started to realize that I REALLY LOVED doing this!  I loved doing it not just for myself, but for everyone!  Because I think it’s so important to capture those fleeting moments of sneaky smiles, mischievous grins, and “thoughtful” eyes while you still can!  To capture that love. And well, that's what photography boils down to, doesn't it? It's about capturing the LOVE. 

I've been told that I capture emotion in my photography so well and to me that is such a high compliment because it tells me I'm doing something right!  And so, that’s where I come in with YOU! I love capturing those special moments and emotions!  Let me capture yours!  I would love to photograph your family in action! Loving, living, growing...
