Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to visit my website and learn more about me! If you haven't already guessed I love people and telling their stories in a non-obtrusive and genuine way using natural light. I feel very grateful that I started doing photography during a time when digital cameras didn't exist and I was able to learn on film and develop my skills in the darkroom. It is that magic that fueled my passion for this work and I still shoot film for fun and mix it into my client work a bit as well. I am a mommy to two humans and one furry creature. And wife to an amazing and supportive man. I reside in Oakland, CA. but my work takes me all over California and I love it! Feel free to drop me a line via my contact form or email me at Studio@ladyoflightphoto.com I would love to meet for coffee or tea and hear your story!
I have the chance to use my innate organizational skills to prepare myself and my clients for the chaos of a wedding day, the preparation for their family session or create a seamless flow for any event or shoot. It is in the preparation beforehand that allows myself, my team and my clients to be able to fully let go and allow the creativity to flow between them and myself. I am a firm believer that organization can create so much freedom if you use it the right way. My style and philosophy is simply to keep it real. Real emotion, real light and real editing. I use minimal photo shop and I aim to create natural looking images that are bright, beautiful and full of love and emotion.
I absolutely love the work that I do. I feel it blends my natural gifts of connection, compassion, creativity and organization. I get to connect with amazing people and tell their stories in a way that feels genuine to them without being overly directive or making them feel like they can’t be themselves. I get to lend my compassionate hand to nervous brides and groom, quiet and shy children or lifestyle and commercial clients. I rely on my ability to ease and comfort people and my calm and compassionate nature to guide me through any photo shoot.
