It was dark, gloomy, and humid in the dungeons of the UCSD library back in 2008. Instead of studying for structural biology or organic chemistry final, I came up with a concept for a funny music video, which I shot soon after. The music video went viral and a record label came across it and paid me to purchase it and to recreate it with their own artist and director. Read more>>

After leaving my abusive husband I was forced to provide a safe haven for my son at the time he was 6 years old. I had no money, no home and no career. I loved photography and turned my passion into my business. My greatest accomplishment has been to value myself and my work. I have studied with the best in my Industry and created gallery quality art and I have taken my average sale per client from $500 to $3000 running a home based studio. Read more>>

I became interested in photography in High School (Fallbrook HS) when I learned that being the yearbook editor meant that I could hide in the dark room all period.

I distinctly remember the day that I brought each of my children home from the hospital as newborn babies. These tiny, perfect, amazing little human beings who changed my life forever. I remember their “new baby” smell, and the noises that they made as they slept. Read more>>
