outdoor movement session // santa barbara, california


Timeless, clean, & seamless... with a touch of editorial.

As an (ex) dancer, I naturally gravitate towards photography with movement. With my keen eye to aesthetic lines + years of experience teaching young students (just taught a dance class this past year as well!), I am thrilled for this opportunity to work & collaborate with so many young dancers in capturing their beautiful movements.

kind words -

Sunny made us feel very comfortable, will accommodate any looks that we want to capture, and is very professional and a great communicator. As a bonus, she is great with kids. Definitely recommend Sunny to capture your special days!

From the moment my family and I reached out to Sunny until the very end of the process, Sunny was so accommodating. Us not knowing much about shoots, we felt a little intimidated but Sunny helped in every way possible and had wonderful communication. When we took pictures with Sunny everyone felt so comfortable and she created a creative atmosphere where everyone was freely throwing in ideas, creating photos with our own family's touch while Sunny helped us try different poses. Thank you Sunny for the beautiful photos and it was a pleasure getting our photos done with you!
