I am a freelance editorial and commercial photographer based in Berkeley, CA. My specialty is kids and teens, but I love photographing people of all ages. I want to tell your stories. My love of photography began when I received my first Kodak Disc for my 9th birthday. I have been capturing moments ever since. With my photos, I aim to pull the viewer in and put them in that moment. In addition to my work, I am also the founder and executive director of KidsRise, a nonprofit dedicating to engaging and empowering the next generation of voters. When I'm not chasing light, I love spending time with my family, playing the guitar and hiking with our dog Hazel.
