Erin and Michael’s Nature-filled Engagement in Big Bear

How can I possibly top Michael’s proposal to Erin on a peak in Machu Picchu? I had my work cut out for me… Erin and I immediately connected when we first sat down together because her relationship is so parallel to mine. We both met our other half many years ago, separated seemingly to move […]

Artsy, Creative, Abbot Kinney Senior Portrait Session

This was no ordinary senior shoot. You see, I’ve known this young lady since she was born. I’ve been friends with her Mom for 23 years now, watching both her kids turn into amazing adults. To make a long story short, having kids just wasn’t in my cards… her kids have been like mine to […]

A country girl finds her cowboy

It’s so much fun when I have a definite theme to work within.  Kelly and Cody are such a cute couple, and their whole wedding scheme will be a country vibe.  Everything from their venue, The Red Horse Barn, to her license plate (a derivative of cowgirl) speaks volumes of their lifestyle.  I knew this […]
