There’s a special moment in photography when artifice disappears. It dissolves like a wisp of smoke, leaving two people—often strangers—face to face. It’s an intense moment, almost uncomfortable. Subject and photographer lock; throat and chest leap; fingers tremble. Fly angers know the feeling of anticipation well. A hatch is on and something unexpected is about to rise, dappling the surface of water. No matter how fleeting they might be, I’m addicted to moments of reality and beauty.

Two days ago—3:00-4:00 PM
Back roads through Woodside, Portola Valley, and Los Altos Hills
Ordinary things look uncanny in lurid light:
Tricycles, trees, kiosks, headlights, chains, fences, signs
Even a church is ghoulish in wicked light
My favorite is the No Parking sign
That, or the fence with chain

What is your life’s great passion?
My greatest passion is my family, especially my children. I never knew what pure love was until I had children. They are the light in my life, and I am constantly amazed watching them grow into kind, smart, and funny (this is very important in our household) human beings. I couldn’t be more proud to be their mother.
What personal achievement are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of my work as a journalist. It was my dream as a child to be a broadcast reporter, and I made it happen. It took a lot of hard work and many rejections to get there (I still have the stack of rejection letters as a reminder to myself to always keep going). My biggest personal achievement was when I was able to report in the Bay Area, and my parents were able to watch me live on television. That felt pretty good.
What’s one of most beautiful places you’ve ever visited?
I would have to say San Sebastian in Spain. It’s absolutely one of the most stunning places I’ve ever seen. There’s this breathtaking beach, Playa de la Concha. It’s a crescent-shaped beach with white sand and blue waters surrounded by lush green hills. It literally takes your breath away when you first see it.
