Thanks for stopping by. I asked my kids, the people who know me best, to write a little about me. 

"Jonya is 16. Or 18. Or maybe 80. She likes to tell stories and sing songs. She liked collecting rocks when she was small and almost never had candy so she played at the beach and colored. I like the choices she chooses for clothes and she looks like she is from California. Because she has lots of freckles and shiny teeth." 

I am from California, I have a B.A. in art history from San Diego State University and usually some kind of camera with me always. I started taking photos in the mid 90’s of punk rock bands and now I specialize in families and other rad collaborations.

My family session prices start at $750. This includes a lovely gallery of at least 50 images to download and one set of prints for you to hold.
