say hello!

I am a maternity, motherhood, newborn and family photographer in the Greater Sacramento area.  I am a Mamma to two amazing teens ( how did they grow up soooo fast?!?!) and a dedicated partner to my fabulous boyfriend.   I grew up in the Sierra Nevada's of California and call Nevada City, CA  my home. I am a mountain and lake lover, hard lemonade drinker, boat bow parker, and crazy  Boxer dog Mom!  I love to scope out new epic locations for your maternity or family portrait sessions.  I have an addiction to buying gowns for my client closet and tiny wraps for newborn sessions.

I can't imagine loving my job any more than I do. I took photography in college when I was in my 20s but never started taking it seriously till Covid left me unemployed and looking for a reason to get out and take photos again. I dove head first into making this hobby my career. I went back to college and changed my degree to jive with this job path. 

Last year I realized my absolute Niche is maternity and motherhood. I can't get enough! I feel giddy and excited with each new client and can't wait to see what magic we will create!

In the 4 years I have been consistently working as a photographer I have won multiple  awards and have been published a handful of times for my family and maternity portriats.  I completed my degree in Digital Design with an emphasis on imagery this spring 20204! Whoohoo!  

Mys sessions are relaxed and fun! I will help you find the right outfits whether you do a studio session and have access to my client closet or do an outdoor shoot. I will help you with posing!  I get funny in front of the camera too so I get it! We have lots of fun and get some incredible images for you to cherish forever!

We used Kendra for our fall family photos/maternity shoot. She is very friendly, down to earth and super easy to work with. Our photos came out beautiful! She had everything edited and sent over to us within the week. We look forward to using her again when our new baby arrives!
