San Diego Family Photographer ~ Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Family Photo Session

San Diego Family Photographer ~ Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Family Photo Session
This family has been coming back for portraits with me since they were pregnant with their daughter and this was their fourth session with me.  I love seeing how much their little ones have grown, even in just 6 months' time. This session, although one of my most challenging, turned out to be one of my favorites of the year.  Toddlers can be very unpredictable, and[...]

San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer I Top 10 favorite photos from 2015 – Happy New Year!

San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer I Top 10 favorite photos from 2015 - Happy New Year!
My goodness, this was such a tough task narrowing down my top 10 favorite photos from 2015! Once I started trying to choose, I wished I could make it a Top 25 post, but ultimately decided I needed to keep it down to 10 photos as originally planned.  There were so many photos I loved from 2015, so please don't be offended if your photo wasn't chosen for this blog post.[...]

San Diego Family Photographer I Siblings photo session at Mission Trails

San Diego Family Photographer I Siblings photo session at Mission Trails
For one of my final posts of the year, I want to share some recent photos I captured of my two little loves.  This year we didn't have the time to have family photos done for our holiday cards, but I wanted to be sure to document them since they are growing and changing everyday.  To be honest, they can be my most difficult subjects to photograph because they have wha[...]

San Diego Portrait Photographer – Madeline-inspired back to school/Halloween Photo Session

San Diego Portrait Photographer - Madeline-inspired back to school/Halloween Photo Session
  Last month for my little girl's 5th birthday I put together a photo session inspired by Madeline, her favorite book.  It just so happens that she just started TK (transitional kindergarten), so I added in a vintage desk and other accessories.  I thought it would be fun to share these photos right now with Halloween just around the corner as well.  I rather t[...]

San Diego Family Photographer – Gorgeous Family Session at Mission Trails

San Diego Family Photographer - Gorgeous Family Session at Mission Trails
My friend and fellow photographer Ashley and I have photographed each others' families a few times over the past couple of years.  I love how comfortable our families have gotten with each other, which results in fun and relaxed photos. For this session, Ashley's daughter Pepper, who has cerebral palsy, was recovering from a recent surgery and she was still wearing[...]

San Diego Family & Child Photographer: Spring Wildflower Mini-Sessions

San Diego Family & Child Photographer:  Spring Wildflower Mini-Sessions
  I'm so excited to offer my annual Springtime mini-sessions again!  I've been scouting some beautiful locations that I hope to use for these mini's and watching the wildflower growth.  We are lucky to have gotten some rain, which means wildflowers are popping up all over.  Yay!  If you recall last year, we hardly got any rain and we were lucky to see just a few wi[...]

Wizard of Oz Halloween Styled Photo Session – San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer

Wizard of Oz Halloween Styled Photo Session - San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer
Presenting my Littles as Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion.  This was earlier this month when I decided on a whim to photograph them while visiting the pumpkin patch.  I had picked up Eva's costume on clearance last year and I found Asher's lion costume at Target.  It's actually a dog costume (only $6.99) so the bonus is our dog can wear it too.  Asher is now 7 years old [...]

San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer: Family Session in Rancho Santa Fe

San Diego Family Lifestyle Portrait Photographer:  Family Session in Rancho Santa Fe
I was so happy when my college roommate Jen contacted me to photograph her family.  When we lived together in Newport Beach I never imagined that 17 years later I would photograph her, her college boyfriend (now husband), their two beautiful girls, and puppy. Our lives are so much different now that we have families.  I sometimes feel nostalgic for those fun days in t[...]

San Diego Maternity Lifestyle Photographer: Adorable Family at Presidio Park

San Diego Maternity Lifestyle Photographer:  Adorable Family at Presidio Park
I had the opportunity to photograph this adorable family's maternity session at the lovely Presidio Park, one of my favorite places to shoot.  Their little boy Connor kept me on my toes because he just wanted to run and explore.  He was at that adorable age where everything he says is a grunt and not yet a word.  He was such a happy boy, and this family was a joy to p[...]

San Diego Family Lifestyle Photographer: Fun with the “B” Family

San Diego Family Lifestyle Photographer:  Fun with the
I love that this family surprised Grandma and Grandpa with a photo session while they were in town for the holidays last month.  This photo session was centered around their granddaughter Rowan, who is obviously adored by the entire family, and for good reason.  She is such a beautiful and cute little girl!  Rowan's dress is by my favorite children's clothing designer[...]

Project Ten: Comfort

Project Ten: Comfort
Last Summer, we took a 3700+ mile, 22-day-long road trip that took us through CA, NV, UT, CO, NM, and AZ with our 14-year-old dog. We visited with family, attended a relative’s wedding in Salt Lake, and explored a small part of our beautiful country. We experienced temps as low as 41 degrees and as high as 113 degrees and elevations from sea level all the way up to [...]

Project Ten: Soft

Project Ten: Soft
On Mother's Day I spent the late afternoon and early evening at Torrey Pines State Beach with my family.  Where we live just twenty minutes inland it was blazing hot, so we decided to head to the coast.  As we got closer to the coast, we could see the marine layer engulfing the coastline.  It was a welcomed relief from the heat of the day and we were happy with an ove[...]
