If you’ve read my About Me, you know that my love of photography did not start with people. It was completely and totally about capturing the world around me. I was amazed and fascinated that I could make the world stand still. The amount of money my parents’ spent developing rolls of film with pictures of my dolls, our toothbrush holders, landscapes (and I was no Ansel Adams)… okay, I had to help pay too, but still.
But what you see here, when I get around to blogging (oops), is mostly people. In fact, it’s mostly babies and toddlers. I love working with people, with families, I love freezing time with a laugh, a scowl, a funny face, or pure wonder (what the heck is that crazy lady holding?!). Only, I never stopped taking pictures of the every day. I never stopped with the dolls, the toothbrush holders, the landscapes (that’s a lie, I haven’t taken a picture of toothbrush holders since those cute bears that hung on the wall in our bathroom in 1994). The point is, I don’t share a lot of what I capture.
I quietly ventured into selling my work years ago when I was fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and just as quietly let it slip away. Recently, I’ve gotten the urge to branch out again, stretch my creative limits, and offer some of my non-people work for sale.
I’m starting with Etsy, but I have some other ideas in mind.
Please have a look around, stay for awhile, share my shop, buy some Christmas cards, and let me know what you are looking for in prints and products. I would love to hear your ideas and how I can add some beauty and perspective to your space and life.

It was really such a joy to get to meet and photograph this little princess and her family. I’ve known her dad and grandparents since I was a little girl and to be able to capture such a beautiful moment in their lives was truly an honor. This gorgeous little princess and her awesomely handsome big brother are some lucky kids.
I love you all! Congratulations again on your sweet girl!

This weekend, I flew to the Sacramento area to meet and photograph our family friend’s newest addition. I was so excited to see the family – it had been so long! Kylee was seven days new and so beautiful. She hated losing her clothes, but was a little angel all swaddled up. I can’t wait to finish going through the pictures. Here’s a sneak peek – big brother was such a trooper and so proud of his baby sister.
“Isn’t she the cutest?” Yes she is!
