Portrait Photography is my superpower!

Professional Photography is an art. It’s about finding or creating beautiful light in ordinary places in order to create extra-ordinary portraits for my clients.

This is my superpower.

The important stuff first: My goal is to make you look your best in portraits, using the best lighting to highlight your best features and guide you thru poses that make you look great and feel great about your self. Yes it is all about you! We can offer hair and Makeup if needed. I pride myself in offering you a fun experience and comes with great images.

If you want to know a little about me here it is: My favorite color is turquoise, I am addicted to chocolate chip cookies and I am currently in recovery. I am an animal lover and love the great outdoors. Some day I would love to hike the Pacific Crest Trail and ride my bicycle across New Zealand. (for the second time)

If interested in my education and the basic facts: I am not like most Santa Cruz photographers, I am a Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman and Certified Professional Photographer. All my degrees and certifications have been earned from the Professional Photographers of America. I have been a professional photographer in Santa Cruz for 19 wonderful years. Yes, photography is one of my passions in life. I am great at posing and getting you to relax in order to get the real true you.

My superpower is photographing ordinary people and making them look and feel extraordinary!
As a Photography Craftsman, I am now offering mentorships to up and coming photographers that want to learn more portrait photography or about the business side of running your own photography business. Give me a call if you are interested! 831-466-0663
