Photographing women and their families is my art, my passion, my business, and how I give back to my community- and has been since 2001.
- •I have photographed 4000 women and families since 1994 including celebrities and major sports athletes.
- •I have a masters in photojournalism and worked in East Africa, Japan, Mongolia and the US. I bring these skills into my maternity and family photography.
- •I started a nonprofit to help foster children get better profile photos.
- •I am one of the few who offer archival heirloom prints called Gelatin Silver Fiber prints which are the same prints Ansel Adams made in his darkroom.
- •I've been called the pioneer in Maternity Photography.

MY FIRST BOOK: PORTRAITS OF PREGNANCY – THE BIRTH OF A MOTHER
The perfect gift for a mother-to-be! My book has maternity photography of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities so all mothers can feel beautiful. It also has compelling and intimate stories of the women's transformative journey to motherhood by Hugo Kugaya, my hero!
MY MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SEEN IN THE MEDIA
As one of the first photographers to specialize in maternity photography, I have had my work discussed in the media since 2001 which has been fun as well as part of my passion to advocate for and raise awareness of pregnant women and pregnancy photography.
