About me

“If anything is worth doing, do it with all your heart.” ~ Buddha

This is a guiding principle that I have followed all of my life, both personally and professionally.

As a child, I loved two things most dearly: family and art. Growing up in Thailand, I was inspired by the vibrant colors and stunning details of my home, and it led me to study fashion and art. Love brought me to Houston, TX and provided me with the best inspiration possible to become a newborn, baby and family photographer: my son.

I am passionate about capturing the priceless moments that families experience starting with maternity though the newborn, baby and childhood stages because I know firsthand how fleeting that time is. I sought out being mentored by some of the best family photographers in the US, including Ana Brandt so I could bring the highest level of skill and professionalism possible to my work, while still allowing room for spontaneity and excitement.

I celebrate the diverse, unique aspects of my clients by making each session a special occasion. Not a fussy one — although my clients do call me a “baby whisperer” — but a wonderful celebration of your life and the love you share with your family.

I create custom outfits, settings and compositions and apply advanced finishing techniques to accentuate every last detail in the photograph for a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork your family can enjoy for decades to come.

Seeing the joy on your face when you see your finished portraits is what makes it all worthwhile.  Please reach out and let’s discuss your vision for preserving your family memories and how I can make your photographic dream come true.

XO
