Enchanted Forest, Family Photos

I have had the true pleasure of working with Allie and Josh since their wedding almost a decade ago. They are the real deal, people… They live a casual lifestyle that encompasses love, fun, travel and their little girl named Piper. I’ve seen Piper from just a baby to now and I swear she only […]

September Session Sale going on NOW!

This is the biggest one yet! After much time and consideration, weighing the evolution of photography and client’s wants/needs I knew it was time to restructure. With digital photography being so accessible it’s hard to understand why a photographer would want to hold the files and make prints for you… I get that. So now […]

Update on Life!

Ok, how in the world is it already February? I realized I have not posted a blog in an embarrassing amount of time. Yes, this isn’t the time of year where I am doing a lot of shoots… and all this rain hasn’t helped with that either. But other than sharing & showing fun shoots […]

Fabiano Family Fun

I adore this family… Honestly, I think I know them better than I really do just from seeing them throughout the years. I photographed 2 of the 3 siblings weddings (in all fairness I didn’t know Vicki when she got married) so I’ve seen some really special moments of their lives through my lens. Now […]

Family Fun Day in the Park

I’m so lucky to meet a couple as they embark on a life together, planning a wedding and a future. It opens the door to connect and build a relationship that can last throughout their life’s milestones. I cannot recall how Stephanie and Bill first found me over a decade ago, but that seems so […]

September Special- BIGGEST SAVINGS OF THE YEAR!

The Birthday Girl!

I’ve got quite the soft spot for Miss Kennedy. I was there the day she was born and met her within 2 hours of her entrance to the world! Long story short, I was there, all pre-planned and on call, to photograph the actual birth, but thanks to an emergency C section I got pushed […]

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 […]

Modern Family, Rustic Setting

I’ve known Courtney for over a decade now.  We met when my career was more focused (pun intended) on modeling work than weddings, hence we did a bunch of artsy, creative portfolio work together when she was pursuing her model career.  I’m talking BMW at night with headlights back lighting her & fog machine type […]

Easy, no fuss shoot day

Let me begin by saying, I LOVE these little guys.  I’ve been photographing Riley and Zach for years.  And now with the new addition of Grady it just keeps getting better!  I wanted to show off some samples from our afternoon as proof that you don’t have to sweat out the location, the clothing, etc […]

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 Henry Family Tree

I had such a great morning with this group! Kim & Paul had been wanting to do a big family portrait of their grown children and their families for a long time now.  It’s one of those things that even with best intentions gets put off.  When she set her mind to it, I was […]

Rustic Western Theme Family Portrait

As most blogs prelude, I’ll start by saying that I photographed Katie and Sylvano’s wedding… over 7 years ago in fact.  And with the best intentions and so much perseverance Katie has finally accomplished her dream shoot.  I was there for Brayden’s first birthday shoot but with their work schedules and two kids time just […]

SEPTEMBER SESSION SALE 2013– It’s that time!

Extended Family Shoot

The reason that we were all gathered together this past Sunday was because Michael Ann and Jim were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.  Yes, FIFTY years people!  In the current world of “delete, refresh” and most tangible items over 6 months old are considered obsolete  this Mr and Mrs are the ultimate example of what […]

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. […]

Welcome to the World Quinn!

If you peruse backwards, you’ll find Kristen and Jay’s engagement session, wedding day highlights and pregnancy shoot all blogged.  I simply cannot resist showing off everything I do for them!  I know I am biased because they are such nice, sincere, good people.  But then again, maybe that’s why they always get the best from […]

Children’s session – Zoey is FOUR!

I am so in love with the many expressions of this little girl.  In a 2 minute window she can go from laughing to looking off to serious to saying “I’m bored” and walking away! Zoey is bubbling over with personality and it is my job to capture the essence of her many expressions.  She […]

Tis the season for The Nix Family

I can somehow never resist posting a blog of one of my favorite families, the Nix’s.  If you follow me regularly you’ll know that I photographed Stefanie and Mark’s wedding back in 2006 and have had the honor of documenting the highlights of their family as they grow.  You can then also piece together that […]
