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!
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 – Personal Work: Joshua Tree Cabin Getaway

San Diego Family Photographer - Personal Work:  Joshua Tree Cabin Getaway
  I wanted to share these photos from our Spring getaway at a cabin in Joshua Tree.  At the time, we were all recovering from bad colds.  My littlest actually had walking pneumonia and was on antibiotics.  So, this was a much-needed relaxing getaway for us.  We stocked up on food at the store and we never left the cabin for three days.  With gorgeous views of [...]

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[...]

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[...]
