About Jody


"Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies. "- Diane Arbus



Jody is an award-winning photographer who captures special {and ordinary} moments with an editorial and artistic eye. Her boutique photography studio is only a few blocks from the coast in Northern California. She shoots on location (enjoying travel to locations far and wide) and will work with you to find the perfect place for your portraits. "I think you will see that my work is delivered with skill and love, and that I will take wonderful care of you!"


She absolutely loves shooting weddings (of ALL kinds) and children's portraits- and it shows in her work!  She is familiar with great spots to shoot whether you are local or visiting, in search of a vacation portrait experience.


Her use of natural light and her laid-back style make everyone comfortable in front of her lens. Her approach is fun, friendly and unobtrusive. In order to spend as much time as possible on each client, she limits her wedding clients to one per month.
