A Whole New World for Grayson

Sarah and Matt’s story is really sweet… These two are actual high school sweethearts, transplants from the midwest and used to migrating for Matt’s work in the military. They’ve now made Hermosa Beach their roots, nesting for a baby. But not how you would automatically assume! Without great detail, I do know that they chose […]

Jaxon’s 1 year Birthday Smashcake Party

A letter to Jax: Dear Cutie-pie, I saw your parents get married, I heard stories of them awaiting your arrival. I photographed your Mom and Dad on the beach with you in her belly. And I’ve seen you newborn, 6 months, 9 months and now one year old. Even though I’m the lady that keeps […]

A Citrus Grove Wonderland

I love locations that make people scratch their heads as to where it could be! For Jen and JS this Irvine citrus grove might as well be far, far away in a place with sprawling land. It’s simply dreamy. This is also the debut of my brand new blue velvet prop chairs too. I collect […]

The Larwins Welcome Kyle John

There are so many variables to newborn shoots.  Because I come to you I’m working within your home, your available light and trying to incorporate your meaningful items like blankets, toys, clothing.  I’m also a slave to the baby’s mood or disposition.  I’ve had shoots that take 4+ hours to yield a collection of solid […]

The Ramos Family

Although I am in the thick of the holiday season with orders, cards and a photography version of Santa’s workshop I simply couldn’t resist sharing a few from Tuesday’s shoot.  This is such a perfect example of how I can document families as they grow.  You see, I photographed Sarah and Ignacio’s engagement session, their […]

The many expressions of Miss Quinn

This time of year there’s so much to share!  I find myself wanting to blog nearly daily with all the fun holiday shoots I’ve been working on. I know I may be biased as I was there the day her Mommy and Daddy got married, but I can’t help but smile every time I look […]

Mr Thomas Robert is here!

I love meeting new clients in all different ways, it’s amazing how people find me actually.  I photographed Amy and Jon’s pregnancy a few months back (search that category and you can see that too!) thanks to Amy being a bridesmaid in a wedding last May.  The power of working hard, truly caring about your […]

Sweet little Makenna- Newborn Shoot

If you follow my blog I seem to always want to share my shoots with Jess and Doug.  Everything from their colorful, modern engagement session… their gorgeous wedding day at Hyatt Huntington… their pregnancy shoot (recently)… so it seems only natural to show off their pride and joy.  Meet Makenna!  She’s so tiny for a […]

SEPTEMBER SESSION SALE 2013– It’s that time!

Mr Grady Powell – Newborn Shoot

If you browse backwards, you’ll find posts of Ashley and Paul’s family for years.  I was blessed to meet Ashley back when she worked for The White House restaurant and was branching out to what is now an extremely successful career as a wedding/event planner.  She was pregnant with her first, Zach, at the time. […]

Happy Birthday Mya!

Proof in the pudding, you can never be too young for a fashionable modeling session.  Mya isn’t even trying to get into Hollywood but she certainly could.  She is a little fashion plate with all kinds of poses for my camera.  One to two years old range and you’re lucky to get in more than […]

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

I immediately clicked with Sonia and Danny back when they first met with me for their beautiful three day indian wedding.  I enjoyed every moment of their colorful and meaningful traditions.  As I got to know them better I knew they were so much more than a “client” to me.  We found ourselves making sure […]

Isn’t she lovely… Isn’t she won-der-ful…

I don’t know why, but the entire time I was editing this shoot Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” kept running through my head!  Makes me sound so silly, doesn’t it?  What can I say, Mia inspires me.  At 2 weeks old this little girl and I spent the afternoon creating together.  My first impression was […]
