{Adam & Vanessa - Engagement Session}

There are some people that have this aura about them that is just so contagious and so warm, you just have to be around them. I have had the great pleasure of working with Vanessa for almost a year now and from the moment I met her, lit felt like I had known her for years. We have become such great friends and shooting her engagement session was such a blast!  Adam totally completes her! They couldn’t stop smiling and laughing at pretty much nothing! They were just so happy and so in love and that is what I love to capture in a couple.

You two are such a deserving couple! I wish there was so much more I could do for you! I cannot wait to see you two become husband and wife <3

{My Chosen Family - Gonzales Army}

    They say your friends are your chosen family and it couldn’t be more true for me and the Gonzales/Blanding family. My great friends Rose and Lee have the 5 most beautiful children together,  and I have witnessed their family tree go from just the three of them to a 7 piece band.  The love they have for each other is one to admire and I have always valued their friendship. We may have 300+ miles between us now but every time we all get together its like not a day went by except for the fact  that the kids grew like 5 inches taller and speak more and have such great intelligent minds! 

I cannot describe how close I am to this family and can only hope to one day have what they have. Lee and Rose, I love you guys to the moon and back and I cannot wait for you to meet your niece Amélie!

{Crystal & Joseph- OC Wedding Photographer}

First off, I want to mention that Crystal and Joseph have become very near and dear to me over the last year after becoming the first people who trusted me with shooting their wedding knowing that I had no prior experience as a primary shooter. I will always have them to thank for taking that leap of faith in me and giving me the HUGE honor of documenting their beautiful wedding. I can only hope that I’ve done this amazing couple justice. You both are such beautiful souls, and your love inspires me. 

These two love birds have known each other since 8th grade! Joseph had always had a crush on her while Crystal was off trying to figure herself out. It wasn’t until years later that they finally reconnected through social media AND BAM all those fireworks were lit up all over again. They have since become parents to two beautiful children who are the sweetest kids I’ve met on earth. 

These are just a few snippets of their gorgeous wedding in Orange County, CA.













Baby girl M looking as beautiful as ever! This pretty gal made me that much more excited about having my daughter in a few short months!

{Coney Island}

There is no greater feeling than marking things off your bucket list. I completed 2 on this one mission to Coney Island.

1. Dip your feet in the Atlantic Ocean. Check.

2. Sing the part “I’m going to Coney Island and have myself a dog” by Good Old War and do just that. Check.

{Central Park}

Kyle and I decided to head to the East coast to quench our traveling thirst before baby K joins us this Fall. I thought NYC was beautiful the first time I visited in the Spring of 2011, but nothing beats early Summer in Central Park! 

{Pasadena Portrait Photographer}

Had brunch with this beauty. Being in her presence is always a breath of fresh air. For obvious reasons, I love taking pictures of her! Here a few we did around Pasadena!
