About Audrey

Hi, I'm Audrey!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope my photography portfolio speaks for itself, but if you’d like to get to know me a bit better before your session, here are a few things about me:

I live in Palo Alto, CA, with my husband, 2.5 year old son, and 90lb bernedoodle. Before the Bay Area, I was in NYC for 5 years, and before that, I lived in Chicago for 5 years and before that, was born and raised in Arizona. Just don't ask me to choose which place I love the most–I truly love everywhere I've lived.

Year by Year



As part of my major in college, I was required to take a Photography 101 class my freshman year. From there, I was smitten with the art, and added a second major of Photography.


I fell in love with portrait photography, and started a business taking photos of pretty much anyone who would let me! I'd charge close to nothing for senior photos for high schoolers and college students. My very first logo is giving 2011 Pinterest vibes.

I would use the money from these sessions to pour right back into lenses, new camera bodies, and courses to keep learning about photography.


I got new branding! And I shot my first few weddings!


I graduated college, did the whole corporate grind bit, and continued to grow my photography business on the side, taking photos every weekend that the weather cooperated.

2014 brought me to Chicago, 2019 brought me to New York, and then 2024 brought me to the Bay Area.


I did the thing I've wanted to do for over a decade, and took my business FULL-TIME, baby! To those of you who have been along for the ride since day 1, I'm immensely grateful for you. For those of you just joining, welcome aboard!

Photography is my one true passion in life; the thing that lights me up like nothing else.

Thank you for being a part of my journey and trusting me with your milestones!

When I'm not taking photos, I'm...

Spending time with my boys.


My family and I love being outdoors and exploring the Bay Area!



I love a good DIY project! There's nothing more relaxing for me than making a project with my own two hands.



I love to read, and usually have at least one book and one audiobook going at all times!
