about Sandra

The Heart Behind the Lens

I am a storyteller. I am an artist. I am a curator of light & love through artistic visual storytelling. I am a San Diego based Lifestyle & Portrait Photographer available for travel worlwide. I am a sister, friend, daughter, auntie and doggie mommy to silly Jax.  I am a wanderlust at heart with a love of all things nature from sea to summit.  I am a yogi in training and a chaser of whimisical maladies and natural magical light. I am a lightworker and intuitive photographer working to bring forth your vision of your highest self.

Photography is not something I do, being a photographer is who I am. I live to capture stories as they unfold naturally and as they are surrounded by the natural light that dances, twirls and falls just so to help me paint true natural beauty, inside and out.

A diamond in the rough is how I see the world. I look through my lens and words come to mind, from each wave that washes ashore to embrace the grains of sand that provides me my sanctuary, to the gurgles and giggles of little angels, to the quiet stolen unseen moment between a bride and her groom as they begin their journey to forever.

My studio is the world around us. I will do whatever it takes to capture the very essence of an emotion, whether it is a stolen glance of undying devotion, a ripple of contagious laughter, a blazing sunset, a majestic mountain terrain, or a new day's promising sunrise.

I believe in each one of us lies dormant untapped possibilities; I believe in every choice we make we can choose to tap into our unlimited possibilities and to see the world as an unlimited source of brilliance. I believe in capturing the heart & soul of your story. I believe in the art of soulful and authentic story telling. I believe in capturing the light in your soul and the love in your heart. 

I have learned that the ultimate happiness in life is to do what makes you smile, because life is a gift.  Capturing stories is what makes my heart smile. To capture a moment in a photograph that will last a lifetime and beyond is something very rare and special to each individual. At the end of the day our lives are a compilation of moments past, moments present, and of moments yet to happen. And to encompass them in a photograph enables us to treasure that moment with us forever. It allows us to pass on our life legacy and to pass on insights for generations..
