I believe that seeing an incredible image of yourself is a transformational experience that every one should have. Often we are self-critical to the point of not seeing the sparkle our loved ones see in us every day. Having photographs that can reflect back your inner beauty is like holding treasure. You deserve to see yourself in this way, and to preserve it for all time. These are the portraits I show you– your WOW images. 

Celebrate your life with photography

I take gorgeous, magazine-inspired photographs of everyday people, from children to 112. No matter your size or age, you do not have to worry. I specialize in posing and lighting you in a way that flatters your body and features. I will coach and direct you into each pose. You do not have to know how to model or be photogenic. I promise, you will never hear me say, “just work it.” You will feel confident in front of my camera, and you’ll even take away a few tips to help you look your best in future photographs. Watch a behind the scenes video here.

Celebrate your unique story or milestone with a day of pampering and special attention. Hold on to your memories through photographs that will become heirlooms to your loved ones.  I can help you select your wardrobe, style your shoot, connect to professional hair and makeup artists. I’ll take care of everything. Request a personal consultation here.

Conveniently located in Bakersfield

I am a portrait photographer based in Bakersfield, California (where I was born and raised). Most of my portrait work is done in the comfort of my private home studio. If you prefer something outdoors with lots of back-light, sun flare, and maybe even a bit bohemian in style, an on location shoot is available.
