Hi! I'm Vanessa.
I am passionate about natural light photography and capturing every fleeting moment of raising a family. From pregnancy, to birth and beyond, I strive to capture organic moments as they unfold, documenting memories for families to cherish forever. I always include a few photos of everyone smiling at my lens, but I love to curate galleries full of playful moments and laughter between you and your family. I want to capture the essence of your relationships, the way your little ones lean into you as they snuggle, and the way your hand brushes the hair out of their face. I want you to have tangible memories of all the moments that seem ordinary and everyday - the ones you'll never want to forget.
My photography journey began when I was just a teen, having been gifted a 35mm film camera that my father bought overseas when serving in the army. The magic of shooting and developing film was an amazing way to channel my creativity. After having children, I began to transition into digital photography, eventually adopting my editing style that is reminiscent of classic film stocks. Tones are soft, grain is subtle and the look is timeless.
Outside of photography, I am the wife of the mailman and mama to two amazing children. We live in a little seaside town in South Orange County, and love to have our feet firmly planted in the sand.
