I absolutely love what I do, and my goal is for every client to feel that when they experience a session with me!

Hi there, I'm Carrie

a little bit sweet
A little bit stubborn
100% Keeping it real 

 

Born and raised Southern California girl, creative professional, multiple business owner, Mom, girlfriend, and BFF with a crazy addiction to vanilla cream cold brews. 

I became a photographer over a decade ago, which boggles my mind! Photography was never the plan, but if there's anything I have learned about life, it rarely goes as planned! I graduated from California Baptist University in 2006, with a degree in Kinesiology. After realizing that wasn't for me, I changed paths, and graduated from Cosmetology school in 2007. Photography started as a side hustle around then, and turned into a business in 2010. 11 years later, and here we are. :) 

I live in Riverside, California, have 3 amazing kids and 2 dogs. My days are loud, crazy and often a little chaotic, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I BELIEVE IN:

Keeping it real, hard work, supporting others, love, and the power of a good nights sleep. 

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Early mornings, drama, any and all seafood, 

YOU CAN FIND ME:

In front of the computer editing,  In the car being Mom taxi, working in the salon, and cheering my kids on at sporting events.

daily rituals

Nespresso lattes, cuddles with my kiddos + love of my life, sarcasm, iced tea, Instagram and Amazon. ;)
