HELLO THERE!

My name is pronounced “truly” as in yours truly. I’m based in  Temecula, serving most of Southern California, and specialize in photographing families, maternity, children, and newborns. My passion for photography has enabled me to transition into full time just recently after 4 years part time and over 20 more years of photographing families and friends as a hobby. I love photographing sessions outdoor during the golden hour and that’s what I specialize in. I believe that a good image should show right away on camera, but I also love the magics of the digital world. I love to create light airy softness and a deep dramatic tone, depending on the mood of the image and the client’s preference. I’m always in pursuit of perfecting my skills, along with other art-related things. I'm a ClickPro member from the clickinmoms community. It's an application-based membership where submission of a portfolio was evaulated and scored for approval. I absolutely LOVE themes, anything whimsical and magical, and story telling. Over the years, connecting with my clients has become my number one goal in addition to creating the best set of images that represents them. Check out my gallery and send me a note if you're interested in a session with me. I'd love to be your family photographer! 

OUTSIDE OF PHOTOGRAPHY

I write exactly how I speak, so bear with me while I continue to ramble.  I’m a mom to 2 little ones . Oh, and being a mother is probably the most rewarding thing next to photography. I struggle with organization, but I LOVE to organize.  I love hand lettering and watercoloring art.   I’ve always been a doodler and I prefer a planner over a phone to keep track of anything and everything. I’m a lover of light, pastel colors, calligraphy, books, movies and coffee.  I’m the worst when it comes to grammars and spell checks. I’m very introverted, but I love meeting people which makes me an outgoing introvert!  I’m happily married to my college sweetheart since 2005. I know it sounds corny, but he truly is the yang to my yin. And without his support, I wouldn't be able to hang out with my children everyday while doing what I love. 

I’m also a new blogger over at yourstrucly.com so head right over and let's talk motherhood!
