“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” – Paul Caponigro


Being able to capture a moment in time and cherish that moment forever is priceless. Days go by with a blink of an eye in today’s busy world. We often forget to stop and take a moment to cherish what we have.

Photography is the perfect way to help you capture your life. We need to have printed pictures as a memory that we can look at forever. This is something that I truly believe in.

Photography is my true passion and portraits and wedding photography is what I specialize in. Taking pictures of babies, families, children, and such is what I love to do. I want to be able to capture memories through my lens.

I am a lifestyle photographer with an Artsy side. The Knot had a great article about photography styles.

“Lifestyle photography is photojournalism redefined. It’s candid, yet done so with some direction and styling — it has an approachable feel and a relaxed result.  A good photographer will look for moments but also set the scene, says Zepeda”.

“Not all portraits have to be a couple in full frame looking at the camera,” says photographer Angelica Glass. “With Pinterest taking over weddings, it’s easy for things to look similar — when you can deliver unique and artistic moments that are only for that couple, it becomes very special.” Photography is not just about the photographer. A couple’s willingness to have fun and enjoy the moment can take a photo to the next level, Glass says.
