  • Well, hello! Welcome to fresh.simple.true.

    I'm a portrait photographer based in Long Beach and I love The Quirk in beings. I like capturing the funny faces, silly expressions and personal interactions that are like wonderful inside jokes to your family. Babies and dogs are my specialty; I love them individually, but when you put them together...bam! Awesomeness happens.

    My clients like portraits that show who they are, not just what they look like. They want the important stages of their lives documented, but in an honest, genuine way. No soft focus for them; no awkward family poses and definitely no matching turtlenecks.

    This site is a combination of my portfolio and blog. Blog posts are right below this introduction, and links to my portfolio work are directly above. I love to blog, but honestly, I'm on Facebook probably more than I should be, so find me there and say hello.

    I donate my time & art to many nonprofits. Rescue work is close to my heart and I offer session discounts for those with rescued/shelter animals and also senior or terminally ill animals.

    I'm a big fan of community. I make my artwork available to nonprofit fundraisers at no cost; if you have an event coming up and would like to auction some of my work, don't hesitate to drop me a line and let me know what you've got going on.

Ok. Since my very last wedding in June, I’ve had this thing called “time” on my  hands. Time! What a concept. (Seriously, when you’re shooting weddings, you don’t have any time to yourself. You’re either prepping for a wedding, shooting a wedding, or processing a wedding. There’s nothing in between.) Last year, Mr. Susan & […]
