Thank you!! :) I’ve been loving your pictures too!



I'm an editorial photographer based out of San Jose, CA. I photograph mostly people, mostly on film, & a lot of live music and fashion. Every day I post a picture here -- either from my day-to-day life or my archive.

I'm also a mother of two and I'm currently on maternity leave. Most of my photographs right now are of my daughters, husband, and friends.

I really like film, mixed-media, old cameras, palm trees, yoga, living in California, road trips, fashion, and sleeping in.
