Colleen is a film and digital photographer. She was born and raised in Loomis, a small town in Northern California. She now resides in Placerville California with her husband, pictured to your right.
"Finding my career niche was not as easy as one might think, It took me a while to get where I am now. I first graduated from Sacramento State University with a degree in interpersonal communication studies. Three years later I decided to go back to school and study photojournalism at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. There I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Photography and haven't looked back since. I have been photographing professionally for eight years now.
I love my husband and I am humbled by the simple things in life. I enjoy photographing weddings for the sole purpose of how beautiful they are and the stories behind the couples i'm photographing.
My favorite subject to talk about is travel. I have studied Music and Art in London. I have traveled alone to Thailand. My favorite countries to explore have been Ireland, France, and Italy. Northern England, I wish was my home.
Among many things, I love 1950′s architecture, rainy days, graphic design, music, and going to baseball games.
And I love taking pictures."
