I'm a California native who now calls Arizona home.  I traded the sand and ocean views for even more sand, lots of sun and lots of cacti! Part of my heart will always live in California, but fortunately many people I love live there as well. Visits to my home state are always on the calendar so if you find yourself needing some beach photos, you know who to call!

I'm Italian.  I often speak too fast and with lots of hand gestures.  Exclamation points will always outnumber periods in emails, because how else will you know how excited I am to talk to you? (I mean using periods just seem so boring!)

I drink too much coffee (Starbucks Iced coffee anyone?),  I can turn any car ride into a karaoke jam session and if snuggle sessions with my daughters (or puppies) were an Olympic sport, I'd be a gold medalist!

I married my high school love, Gabe... or as I call him 'Gabe the Babe' (you can call him that too!) and together we have two daughters, Lacey Blu & Kylie Rae. I'm pretty much obsessed with my little family.  In fact, our marriage and the family we have built will always be the driving force behind my photography.  Now I can't wait to hear all about you! 

IT's so NICE TO MEET YOU!

I believe God made me to be creative, and it's my honor to give HIM the glory through what I create.  I believe marriage is one of the most beautifully transformative experiences you will ever share with another soul. I believe raising a family takes a village (and I'm thankful for mine).  I believe we all speak a love language, and while I believe 'Affirmation' is probably my current love language, I also believe in acts of service because loving people well is one of my greatest joys.

finding joy

I believe exercise is the key to outrunning any bad mood, and if that doesn’t work then a homemade cannoli will probably do the trick! I believe summer evenings are best spent outside with a drink in your hand while country radio is playing in the background.  I also believe that sea turtles and the earth are all super important BUT I hate paper straws and won't have it!! I believe that the prettiest color in the world is a Starbucks green straw being passed through drive thru window towards me.

I love to wander through Nordstroms and I believe that window shopping is just as inspiring as buying something new.  I love all things home decor, but more than making a space beautiful, I believe in creating a place that feels warm and welcoming to others.  But most of all,  I believe that people matter and our community is the heart and soul to a beautiful life and it should be fed often with friends, and laughter (and a glass of wine).

the moment

I enjoy shooting families and weddings, but what I love most is love & marriage.  I believe your wedding day is step one to building a lasting foundation for a life together.   To witness moments so special, so powerful and to seal these memories to your family's history with a simple click of my shutter will always be my greatest honor.  Photography for me started as a way to tie my daughter's quickly vanishing childhood to the countless memories flooding my heart.

my WHy

While watching my family grow, I began to print photos I had taken. Images that were kissed by window light, illuminating slivers of time and details that I never wanted to forget.  I would hold onto these mementos of fleeting time, and know that every mother needed images such as these for her own. I want every child to see themself on the walls of their home...for it is in seeing how you are connected, that forms a sense of belonging.
