Oh boy! A little man is on his way! And his name is Alden. Devin and Chris fell in love in college, and I’ve had the great pleasure of knowing Devin since we were in jr. high, getting to witness her find love in Chris...
What a delight it was to spend the evening with the Louthan Family on the shores of Del Mar! Rufina had been on the search for a photographer to capture their first family photo while baby Henley was still under 1-years-old.
Closed out the end of September with this fabulous Park Hyatt Aviara Wedding in Carlsbad! If you haven’t been to this resort, it is simply breathtaking, and a must visit even for a drink in the bar and a walk around the gorgeous grounds.
Omg! I’m in LOVE with this industrial boho chic styled shoot at the Luce Loft in Downtown San Diego. There are two places I absolutely love taking photos: the great outdoors and beautiful urban spaces like the Luce Loft.
I love classic love stories like Lizzie and Tony’s. Lizzie and Tony’s story starts one evening at O’Sullivan’s Pub in Escondido. They both had planned to be out with friends that night, but last minute, both friends dropped out.
Today marks the 44th Anniversary of the Birth of Hip Hop which has not only changed the way music is created, performed, and listened to, but also created a revolution that is a part of our every day lives - from the way we speak to the way we be.
I was so fortunate to get to photograph Amber Spence's beautiful family first, the creative lady behind Amber Spence Photography and Design. Amber and I know it's always a real treat to be the central focus of a photo shoot, especially when it involves the loves of your life.
Hey guys, it's me. This is a rather deeper and longer post than I normally put out on the blog, but, in all transparency, I’m a very spiritual and emotional being who has real struggles, and I personally struggle around my birthday, which I celebrated last weekend on July 31st.
I love traveling to my clients and getting to see a new location. I find that with my clients who live outside San Diego, it can be beneficial for me to come to them, especially when they have been ordered by the doctor to stay close to home because they are pregnant with twins.
The Encinitas Library is one of those special public places that you can spend hours in. They have a robust book collection, the building is situated with one of the best ocean views, and the City of Encinitas uses the space to celebrate both local and internationally acclaimed arts all throughout the year.
Being out in nature without cell phone reception is such a blessing and curse. I'm not going to lie to you, my cell phone goes with me everywhere, but during this Big Bear Camping Trip my cell phone might as well have been a twig on the ground.
Summertime is here! How fun would it be to plan your bachelorette party with the theme of tropical boho pool bash? Grab the girls, get some really cute bold bohemian bathing suits and dresses, and head to the most vintage hotel you know of (for us it was San Diego's finest Lafayette Hotel off of El Cajon Blvd).
I loved working with the Echeverria + Ortiz Family on this beautiful lifestyle family portrait. It was a really sweet chance to make Anthony's graduation that much more special. Plus, mom got to capture all the excitement in an updated group family photo, a photo of her with each child, and individual portraits of the kids.
Anthony Graduates! Congratulations to all the graduates of 2017! It was such a cool experience getting to photograph Anthony's 8th Grade Graduation at Aviara Oaks Middle School in Carlsbad, CA. The skies were clear and weather told me summer is here! And just in time for all of us to put on our swimsuits and head to the beach!
As I look back on my own family history, it occurred to me that my family did professional family photos one time growing up and that one time I have zero memory of, I just have the pictures. It cracks me up too because they look like school photos for a family. Yeah know what I'm talking about?
This Friday we celebrated my husband's 30th birthday! In honor of this special time, we took a stroll to Park Place Canyon, a special scenic canyon in Cardiff by the Sea that Dylan walked his entire childhood up until he got keys to his first motorcycle.
