Here we are. My sisters and I. Triplets. Looking back on these photos brings me so much happiness. These treasured photographs have stood the test of almost 33 years. We don’t have thousands of photos like I do of my kids but the photos I do have of my sisters and I are priceless. Having these tangible prints within a simple white, 3 ring binder will forever be one of the most valuable things I own.Read More
The fall air was starting to turn cool and crisp as the season transitioned into winter. I met the Nguyen family at Thomas Riley Wilderness. It was a busy day as the rush for holiday photos continued. When I saw Lan in her blush pink lace dress, I jumped for joy! Her dress went perfectly with her Husband Tommy's outfit and baby Ryker's as well!Read More
The warm sun, setting in the mid December sky. The weather perfect for a family beach photo session at Little Corona state beach. I'm greeted with the warmest welcome from the beautiful Wells family, all dressed to perfection! (I fell in love with Makinzee's long tulle skirt and blush lace top!) Baby Pierce was about to turn one, and stunning momma Makenziee had just announced she and Jason were expecting baby number two! (How amazing does she look?!) Baby Pierce was all smiles, ready to explore the beautiful beach covered in little pebbles and soft sand.Read More
The autumn air had not yet gotten crisp and cool. The Southern California heat still lingered from summer. The Buckel's family arrived to the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano, dressed to perfection for little Zoey's one year session. The Mission, so stunning with all it's foliage and historic architecture was the perfect location for a one year session.Read More
The tide, low. The sun, warm. The ocean, sparkling like a bed of jewels. The absolute epitome of a beautiful sunny Southern California day at Little Corona Del Mar Beach. As we approached the Mauch family, we were greeted like friends. Because, the Mauch family are our friends. It was truly a special family session, one that was in the works for a couple of months.Read More
Have I ever told you how obsessed I am with maternity sessions?!! Well, they're my all time favorite type of session to photograph!
Heather and I had been in contact several months ago. I ran my first ever, photo session giveaway on Instagram, and Heather was the lucky winner!

Did I already say they are my all time fave?!Read More
How picture perfect is this sweet new family of three?! Welcome to the world baby Marin IV! I was blessed to be able to document Cynthia and Marin's maternity a few months ago. The excited soon-to-be parents were over the moon about their upcoming arrival of their baby boy. Fast forward a few months, I was honored with the opportunity to capture some newborn photos of baby Marin, and his beaming parents Cynthia and Marin ( the family name 'Marin' goes back four generations!!!).
I feel so honored to have been able to capture some special moments for the beautiful Stotesbury family!
Krista contacted me regarding a family session, stating that she, being a photographer herself, was never in any of the photos with her kids (ahem, sounds very familiar!). She had seen my work from a photography group we are both apart of. When Krista first booked, she thought it would just be her and her two little ones, Zach (Zackie) and Gemma. But session day came, and her husband Dean wanted to join in on the fun! I'm so glad he did because it made the family dynamic complete.Read More
