About Me

I am a female photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area with years of experience in various styles of photography. I visit Los Angeles, Seattle/Portland, Vegas as often as possible when my schedule allows. I am always determined about creating excellent imagery. I have been a serious shooter since 2003. My photography is of a particular artistic style that I have cultivated and developed over many years. I do not like to rush the process of capturing great imagery. I do like to make people feel at ease and do not push people to be something they are not. In addition to working with models, I shoot many events, weddings, portraits and do landscape & nature photography as well.
~ I love all aspects of photography! ~

~MODELS~
I work very well with models of all different levels of experience. All my models work within their comfort level!
I feel most models have always had a strong sense of confidence and trust in my work style turning out results. Having drive, a little creativity and an easy going attitude is mostly all that is needed to accomplish great results. I do prefer models who have some minor body to lighting awareness but I will always provide direction as well. Basically, I will be one of the most mellow photo shoots you will experience.

Bring flat shoes for walking around in and high heals or healed boots for when we are shooting the photos. Most of the time I ask my models to handle their own makeup unless we plan for something else that is special through our email correspondence.





~ASSIGNMENT PHOTOGRAPHY~
In general I am 80% of the time always an on location photographer.  My style preference is to be in a real environment, whether outdoors or indoors as white or black backdrops become very visually boring for me and lack the adventure and dynamic advantages to on location imagery.  Yes I can shoot with you in a studio with advanced scheduling, I do have access to using a handful of industry associate studios around the Bay Area. On the other hand I am always looking for girls willing to help me with scouting new locations that we could possibly utilize to shoot. Talk with your friends, friends of friends and please let me know if you can offer any indoor or outdoor location recommendations. I love discovering odd/new places to have as a shoot location. Of course I am also capable of coming up with or networking my own shoot locations, but it is always nice when someone offers ideas for this too, because she might think of something or know of places I havn't thought of exploring yet. Collaboration always makes the process of shooting much more fun!

I am generally involved with ALL the styling work on my models, which is represented in my portfolio unless it's latex or designer or otherwise and I always give credit so long as I know to whom it should be given.

I do all my own Retouching and post-processing work
which means many additional hours goes into every photo shoot.



~BOOKINGS~
If you are looking for portfolio content or have a specific shoot concept you want to capture I would love to assist you in accomplishing your goals. Whether you are a model, MUA, hair stylist, or clothing designer that needs to start or update your imagery, marketing or web content, please email me to inquire about scheduling and coordinating details.

Session fees range from $300-700 and up for half to full day, prices vary depending on booking criteria and retouching services. If we are shooting for your benefit please do not ask me for a trade. My rates are very reasonable and can be discussed. A non-refundable 25% deposit fee is required for scheduling any sessions.





~TFP ASSIGNMENTS~
I am becoming very selective about the models that I will take the time to TF.

If I have made initial contact with you then I am offering a TF assignment because I think your look would create something amazing in front of my lens. Most all models I have contacted have been willing to work with me on a TF basis as they view the quality of my work and assignment ideas as something that is worthwhile and would benefit their modeling portfolio. I supply 5-10 retouched FULL resolution digital images as well as maybe 15-20 more RAW originals for you to review and keep depending on # of outfits we shoot, etc.  I believe in the mutual value of TF so I try supply to you just AS much AS I would expect to receive on any collaboration. But what you will get is only what came out the best from our shoot session.

~Models asking me for pay~ Models get paid when I have paying clients and/or on rare occasions when a model is traveling and has a very professional portfolio/look ~  I do not pay models when collaborating on a fun photo session that we both want to create for our benefit ~ I have long standing professional relationships and rarely as an artist can pay model fees. If all you want is your rate, then I will return to my circle of awesome girlfriends who are more than willing to play dress up or dress down with me.

In photography you really have to have a understanding for people. You have to be empathetic and capable of seeing into people to understand them sometimes in a way better than they understand themselves, because most of the time they are coming to you to be shown who they really are. ~ Shiva
