TEDx Mission Viejo


As a life long learner, I discovered Tedx because so many talented people that I admire had shared their ideas through this platform. I am so honored to now be a part of the TEDX team in Mission Viejo this October.

I love telling stories. The best way I have found to capture stories is through photography. I have been photographing professionally since I opened my first retail studio in 2002. Whether it is telling the story of a brand, a cause, a love story, the story of a new life or the story of a family, I love to capture it all. To truly take amazing images, you have to be able to connect with people and make them feel comfortable. This is where I shine.

When I am not behind the camera or obsessively reading and studying to improve my craft, I can be found listening to self development books on Audible while walking my pound puppy along the beach in Laguna, cheering for my highly competitive kids at the poolside, snuggled in my quiet chair reading a great novel, hiking with my husband in the hill surrounding our home, watching a great drama or traveling with my family.
