leaving it to chance | hermosa beach maternity photographer

We are really lucky here in Southern California, we are not too affected by the weather (although I don’t know about you but that cold spell a few weeks ago made me feel like we would forever be stuck in freezing tempratures!! 37 is just wrong at the beach!! ok….I’m almost as dramatic as those reporters…but it was FREEZING!)

This shoot had already been postponed because of weather from the weekend before so even though it was POURING rain, and I mean POURING, during our early AM phone call we decided to just go with it, leave it to chance, just cross our fingers and hope the skies would clear….and that is just want they did. Perfect conditions, perfect lighting…it was all around amazing. I will definitely rethink the instant reschedule next time it is raining!! Here are just a few from our time together.

Thanks for going with the flow!!
Good Luck!!

family | san ramon family photography

I have so much blogging to catch up on!
This year I travelled up to Northern California to see some friends, take their holiday pictures and meet some new families to take their family pictures! I had a blast and hope to make it a yearly trip!!
The environment is so much different up there and while yes I am spoiled with the beach here I could of seriously pulled over on EVERY corner of San Ramon and had a photo shoot. The light was amazing and it was SO SO GREEN!

That first shot is just perfection. Love it!

and they lived happily ever after | san diego wedding photographer

In the middle of busy season I took a weekend break from babies and families and travelled down with my family to San Diego for my husband’s cousins wedding……I was honored they asked me to document their day. I really enjoyed being more of a fly on the wall and i had so much fun!! AND, lucky for me I had the fabulous Ashley Kelemen by my side all day. (Thank you Ash!!!!)

I loved all of Lindsey and Judah’s personal details and the location was fabulous! On the harbor in San Diego a little before sunset, hello! backlight!……just my thing……and when the party moved inside…..it was just that…..a great big party!! Here is a little glimpse of their day…it’s hard to pair down 500+ images when you already have a problem pairing down images!! So excuse the over share!

Congrats Lindsey & Judah!! You were both glowing and I know everyone could feel the love!! Thank you so much for having me document your day!!
I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!
Enjoy!

 

Thank you so much again to my second shooter, Ashley Kelemen!!
And Congrats, Lindsey and Judah!!!

s family | palos verdes family photographer

Holiday season is just winding down, photography wise, and now the cards are all starting to arrive!
I recieved this lovely little family’s card the other day and so I thought I’d share their pictures with y’all.

Mini sessions were such a hit this year I am going to add them in a few times a year…next set will be right before Mother’s Day! So if you are looking for a gift, please keep me in mind!! Details will be announced in the coming year, but if you are interested feel free to drop me a note so I can make sure to get the information to you!!:)

 

we were just playing around after their session…and I caught this one….slightly obsessed with it.
