San Francisco Lifestyle Photographer
Whether you are looking for a creative, organic, relaxed lifestyle image for your social media or fashion blog, yoga classes, artistic actor/actress head shots for your agency portfolio or comp card, creator content, casual model for the day or a customized backdrop for your personality, let’s talk! I love capturing beautiful, unique editorial and environmental portraits for clients with a custom approach.
I highlight strengths and capture individuality in people in a flattering, unique environments with a focus on color + environment for the photoshoot. Location scouting in the San Francisco Bay Area (San Francisco, Marin County and Oakland) and creative direction is my specialty. I shoot outdoors, client places of business and public spaces with natural light for the photo session. Whether you are male or female, long hair or short hair, updating your photos or getting your first set of professional images, let’s talk! Samples below.

Should you Photoshop or edit your modeling digitals and portraits?
It will depend on your photographer and agency. There are several photographers out there that overly embellish and filter photos to make subjects too artificial and fake which many top agencies hate. There is nothing worse than attending an audition only to be sent home immediately because your photographer altered your appearance beyond recognition.
You might like these overly soften, airy portraits but often these types of photos are useless by agencies and talent reps as they misrepresent your real life appearance. My approach is to focus on natural, organic photos in flattering light vs. using excessive studio lighting and butchering photos in post-processing.
