Welcome to One Good Shot Photography. I'm so happy you're here!
I’m a Valley Girl born and raised in the heart of California. As long as I can remember I've always had a love for children. If there's a baby in the room you can bet I'll be snuggling it. Fast forward to my college years and many nanny jobs later, I acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. I worked as a pediatric nurse for a short time before starting a family of my own. This is when I fell in love with photographing children.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart and he is more supportive than I could ever imagine. We have two beautiful teenagers who make my heart smile. And sometimes make me want to scream. But I love them! They are my entire world.
I require coffee! I love peanut butter, and movie nights with popcorn & milk duds (you should try it!). Puppy breath and kitten purrs and bedtime snuggles. I love fitness (most of the time). The beach is my happy place. And there is something about the smell of rain that warms my soul. These are a few of my favorite things.
Professionally, I am your photographer. Personally I will forever be your friend. I’m the one behind the camera, it’s where I prefer to be. A witness to those perfect and not so perfect moments between you and those you love most. And believe it or not...sometimes it's the imperfect moments that make us whole.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like what you see. My photography style is natural, simple, timeless and it would be an honor to create your lasting memories.
These are my people. They are my everything.
