Artistic Photography that Makes You Stop and Stare

Located in Ventura County and serving all of Southern California, I am a photographer specializing in photojournalistic portraits of children.

La Rousse is a French word that means The Redhead. Red is not only my favorite color and the color atop my head, but it also represents courage, strength, love, and passion. To my ears, French is the most beautiful language of all – full of glamour, romance, and sophistication. The day I make it to Paris, my life will be complete.

I believe in photography that: evokes emotion, inspires, tells a story, and is timeless. I strive to document the uniqueness and beauty in each individual and event.

I also believe in: quality not quantity, making subtle enhancements to images instead of applying trendy effects, and printing photographs to hold onto tangible memories.

I’ve been told that I: have a good eye, capture the spirit and personality of my subjects, and am sweet, gentle, calm and relaxed.

I am inspired by: film photography, dramatic light, nature, and the details that sometimes go unnoticed.

My promise is to capture artistic, organic images for people to hold onto long after the moment has passed.
