Hi there! I'm Mimi and I would love to make beautiful photos with you.
My photography obsession started as a little girl, secretly swiping my mom's camera and "wasting" precious film on my own inspiration. I'd spend my allowance on disposable Kodaks, until I learned the basics of digital photography from my dad. I joined the photography club in high school and spent hours coordinating silly shoots with friends. As an adult, I've found tremendous value in taking professional classes, attending workshops and conferences, and shaping my skills daily with my amazing clients and children.
What really pulls me into photography is the ability to freeze time. The right images can vividly remind us of moments, places, and emotions, and traveling through time while looking at them is pure magic. I love to give people that experience. Natural light, vivid color, texture, and understated details are some of my favorite things. I love meeting new people, figuring out what makes kids laugh, and capturing genuine joy.
After five years living in Seattle, I'm now lucky enough to be based in Phoenix, Arizona. I thoroughly enjoy the opposite extremes that each of these gorgeous places has to offer. I travel regularly to connect with clients all around the Western U.S. and beyond, so wherever you are reading from, don't be a stranger! I may be in your neck of the woods soon!
Photography aside, I am a mom of three, a yogi, a pianist, a California native, an athlete, a food-lover, a traveler, and a forever student. I can't wait to meet you!
