Hello world!

I mentioned I grew up in San Diego which is such a blessing!  What an amazing city we live in!  It’s so wonderful that I didn’t want to leave after high school and went to UC San Diego.  I started majoring in psychology but quickly realized that this was just not going to be for me.  I literally looked at my transcript and decided that since I was getting A’s in all of my History classes that I should reconsider my major.  But what to do with that?  Either law school or getting a teaching credential.  Since, my mom, dad, stepmom, 3 cousins, aunt, brother and great grandmother are/were teachers…it was the logical choice!

On my way to becoming a teacher I took a side trip and to go on a mission team to LA.  I transferred up to UCLA and ended up graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in History.  Then I headed up to Santa Barbara on another mission team and attended UCSB to attain my teaching credential.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but this is where I met my husband!  However, he had long hair, lots of tattoos and earings, so he didn’t seem like the guy I was going to marry at the time.  We became best friends and 4 years later we got married!

I moved back to San Diego in 2003 to be closer to family.  With 2 young girls I needed my mom!  I also got a wonderful joy teaching 8th grade U.S. History at a middle school.  So, we raised our family here in Chula Vista, near my family and back home in a beautiful city.

I started my photography business because I love taking pictures and friends actually started PAYING me to take their family images.  Then more friends started asking me to take their pictures and here we are!  I take family images, newborns, maternity, engagement, seniors and weddings.  I just can’t decide what to specialize in!  They are ALL fun!
