When I look back on my childhood in Oakland, CA, there are three things that always bubble to the front of my memories: bustling, laughter-filled family holidays; my mom’s mouthwatering Mexican food; and my dad dancing through the living room to cumbias with a camera in hand. This was my first experience of photography. A joyful heart capturing the moments that mattered most with the ones he loved most.
I suppose that’s why, for me, photography and love are so closely tied together that I just can’t imagine them being tugged apart! So, when I decided that I wanted to pick up a camera and start making art of my own, I knew it had to be rooted, above all, in love. Love of family. Love of partner. Love of self.
Today, I passionately serve the couples and families of my home sweet Texas home in Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Boerne, San Antonio and beyond! With an uplifting, joyful energy and bright, romantic style, I preserve those moments of love on camera. Whether you are wandering by the Guadalupe River hand-in-hand with your honey or snuggling up close with your little ones in a field of wildflowers, I am passionate about making you look and feel your best through constant encouragement, guidance, and a bottled water on a hot day! I believe anyone should be able to decorate their home with photos they cherish, and I’m 100% committed to doing absolutely anything to deliver exactly that.
When I’m not hanging out with clients or working on my latest gallery, you can catch me serving children in the foster care system, choreographing a quinceañera (because I absolutely LOVE to dance), or cuddling up with my husband to watch the latest episode of This Is Us with a glass of Stella Rose in hand! And what would our Sunday afternoon be without an epic Nerf battle with my three adorable kiddos Hailey, Atalie, and Caleb, while our cat Coco hides under the couch!
So, go ahead and browse through some of my favorite sessions featured in my portfolio, Texas Culture or in Hill Country Wedding Magazine, and then drop me a line, so we can start planning your session! I can’t wait to meet you Hermosa, and turn your loveliest memories into art that will be treasured for a lifetime and beyond!
