I love my job. I love capturing the pure beauty in someone and/or something. Look at this gorgeous mommy! After two princesses, she is waiting for a prince. I cant wait to meet him and take his newborn photos! Not much longer now!!! Thank you for a wonderful night M Family!

Everyone knows I have an extra soft spot for fellow fire families, so I was so excited for this session today. This little 5 day old was such a dream!!! He was SOOOOOO SWEET!

Laughter. That’s what it’s all about. I had SO MUCH FUN with this adorable family. They were cracking me up and they were so relaxed (which made me relaxed!). I have known these big 8th grade twins since they were very small. They are now taller than ME! I have always worried about my own girls becoming preteen/teenagers one day but seeing what wonderful boys these two have become gives me hope that it wont be as bad as I thought. However, their handsomeness (is that even a word?? LOL) is going to make their poor mama crazy! They are cute AND sweet and they always have been.

Of course we had AMAZING light once again. I am in love with evening light. 🙂


Such gentlemen!! Carrying my props through fields for me!!

I set up a shoot last night to practice some OCF (off camera flash) for the first time…the OCF part didnt go so well. Let’s just say I have a lot to learn! HA! However I got some great shots at sunset using natural light so I thought I would share them here. Thank you Brittney for being our model on such short notice!

I just attended my very first workshop at The Ebell Club in Long Beach. It was called “The Wedding!” It was a fake wedding that went from the engagement all the way through the reception. We rotated through stations and had new challenges at each station. It was a lot of fun! Here is the first round of pictures I have. Thank you to all the leaders that helped with this day!

My challenge for this shot was “kissing”!!! These models are just friends but I think this is HOT!

Being funny!

I love this one!

This was the “bridals” challenge. It is a popular thing for brides in the South (and East Coast?) to have bridals done weeks before the wedding. It’s a shoot focused just on her, her dress, her beauty. I wish this was common on the West Coast!



Thank you to all our vendors for making this day happen! Please contact me if you would like any of these images. Also let me know if I missed anyone!

I picked up my girls from grandma’s house after a shoot one night last weekend. I had to pull over so I could get some pictures of my girls in this gorgeous colorful sunset. It was past their bedtime, they were in their jammies, but I just had to stop. LOL Poor kids! There were so many colors! It was really beautiful!
