This is a little snippet from one of my favorite families. I’ve worked with them over the years and always look forward to seeing their sweet girls. Don’t let their sweet smiles fool you, they kill it on the soccer field too. 🙂
That’s the beauty of years of experience in the same field. You get to know families and there’s no warm up or get to know you. There’s only hugs and high fives! I’m lucky enough to have many many families that I get to see year after year. I love watching their kids grow up and see them flourish!

My holiday mini-sessions are kicking off this weekend. But, if you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late! I still have some dates and times open, so look at the options below and click on the link above to check them all out. This session is from one of my favorites in Laguna Beach. The rock formation adds the perfect bit of texture to the already gorgeous sand and water scenery.
I love spirited children and these boys were amazing to photograph. When personalities come through a photo, it just makes it come alive. So, when I see you this fall, make sure to bring all the spirit!
Whenever a client has a Dutch-style door, this type of photo is a MUST. I just love little ones hanging out the perfect little perch of a seat. And I love it when families are photographed in their home.
Hey friends! I’ve got all my October dates and locations picked, so wanted to share them with you here!
The sessions are 20 minutes long (unless otherwise noted) and they are $100 for the session fee. There’s an additional flat rate of $400 for all your digital images for your own printing and sharing. You’ll be set up for success with helpful tips for printing and resources.
October 13: (This is Columbus Day, so you may have it off work.) The photo sessions will be at Irvine Regional Park from 3:30-5:00pm.
October 18: The photo sessions will be on Balboa Island. I’d like to do the sessions with families enjoying treats on Main Street. To see an example of what it would look like, click to this blog post. I may be able to add a few more sessions at the docks in Balboa too, so let me know if you’re more interested in that type of session. The sessions will take place 9:00-10:30am.
October 25: If you like a more urban look, these photo sessions will take place near the Artist District of Santa Ana. There are some really unique walls and architecture, all within walking distance. These photo sessions will be 9:30-11:00am
October 25: Sunset at Seal Beach photo sessions will be from 4:30-6:00pm at the south end of the beach.
October 26: This sweet little private beach in Laguna Beach will host the photo sessions from 4:00-5:30pm. The perfect sunset lighting!
Before you were married, did you ever think about how many kids you wanted? I came from a family of four, so I’ve always felt right at home with big families. All the chaos, laughter and fun! My own 3 kids are really close together. The first two are 19 months apart and the second two are 21 months apart. I remember having Jake and thinking, this is SO easy. All he does is look at us and smile. Let’s have another! So, we did. And our middle guy Cooper was slightly more active, but also pretty mellow. Before we knew it, we had three kids. Three years and younger. When Brent had to go back to work after Jillian was born, I kinda wanted to beg him to stay. This three to one ratio was kinda scary! But, I somehow survived and now the boys share a lot of the same best friends and Jillian is keeping up doing exactly everything the boys are doing. I love my big family. And I love being around other people’s families. I’m comfortable around the dynamics and can steer around sibling situations as they come up. Who knew all those days being overwhelmed at home with babies and toddlers would be on-the-job training!?
(PS-mine are now 13, 12 and 10)

Crawling babies have all the moves. It’s as if everything they do was meant as a pose for the camera. There’s never enough rolls on chubby arms and legs, either! Sophia had her newborn session with me, her 4 month session and now her 7 month session. It’s been so much fun to see her grow and I can’t wait for her next session, when she’ll be walking around! Here’s a look back…
