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 […]

Family Matters, A Very Special One

I don’t usually post the same location for a blog back to back, you’ll see I just used this “enchanted forest” recently however this one turned out so different that it’s worth sharing as well. Of course the content, styling, location, right time of day, props, they all come together to make a photograph that […]

The Becker’s Beachy Themed Shoot

I know… it’s Thanksgiving, so what am I doing working? Well, sometimes although I “should” be taking a whole day off I’m just too inspired. And let’s face it, the pie is in the oven doing it’s thing so I have 45 minutes to kill. I just couldn’t wait to show Estella, Greg, Adriana, Shelby […]

Michelle + Mike’s sentimental engagement theme

Michelle and I have worked together for years, just in a different capacity. I’ve been doing corporate events and business headshots for the company she works for, Global Cash Card, for years now. Diversifying my work into corporate stuff ironically sends me wedding leads here and there! When her long-time boyfriend Mike “put a ring […]

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 […]

Soon to be Mr and Mrs Trumble…

Before I say a word about Matt and Taryn I need to give a huge thanks to Dana and Jimmy Green who referred them to me.  I photographed Dana & Jimmy’s wedding day back in 2004 so to keep me in mind a decade later is appreciated beyond words! So Matt and Taryn met with […]

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 […]

Hayden Blaes Pekar

Ahhh the joys of my work.  Photographing Jessica and Scott’s wedding, then their pregnancy session and now the birth of their first son, Hayden.  Jess had such an easy-peasy pregnancy that I was sure he was going to pop right out like butta.  Unfortunately he was breech, unable to turn and early.  Having a C […]
