I am so glad you’re here! Preserving the art of genuine and real connection, is what I’m after, so that your story can live on for generations. We all have a story worth telling and memories worth sharing. I believe photographs are invaluable and moments we collect to tell our life’s story. I am a Modesto Photographer and Beyond and my endless love for the outdoors has driven my passion for photography in some epic places like Yosemite National Park, Eastern Sierras, Northern California Coast and Hawaii. I can’t wait to capture the most precious art of your life authentically.

"I believe photographs are similar to footprints leading you to a special place where you can see and feel each one of them again."

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
- John Muir


Quality portraiture is an investment and your life’s story is worth it. Those life moments we hold dearly; you know the ones we tuck away in our minds and hearts, can be relived through photographs. I believe photographs are similar to footprints leading you to a special place. I am here with a full heart and honored to be a part in telling your story as you are.

"I don't have enough words to say what a dream it was to work with Lupe. Even before the session she helped me choose outfits for the whole family as well as a stunning location for the perfect family photos. I was a little worried about the chilly weather the day of our session, but Lupe made it so fun for all of us we couldn't have wished for a better session. Then she sent the most beautiful gallery of pictures I have ever had taken. I can't stop looking at them and can't wait to hang them on the wall! It's not always easy to be in front of the camera, but Lupe made us all so comfortable and at ease, you can tell in the pictures. Thank you Lupe for capturing my family as beautifully as I imagine us."
