My brother-in-law and sister-in-law's annual family photos taken in Carlsbad, California. My sister-in-law, Kathy, is always so on top of getting there photos done early so we shot these for their Christmas card back in October. She definitely has the right idea - taking photos before the holiday rush is definitely the way to go. We were able to take these on a Saturday with no crowds and plenty of sunlight because it was before daylight savings time ended - I mean look at that glow ..read more

And this is why we shoot on weekdays at the beach! We almost had the whole place to ourselves for Stevie and Zach's glowy, sunset beach photos. When we arrived at Laguna Beach for their engagement session, the tide was high but we didn't let that stop us. After some rock climbing we got to this secluded beach spot with crystal clear blue water. Stevie and Zach were also not shy about getting their feet wet, which I love. Photos in the water are my favorite! Congrats Stevie and Zach! Hope you love your photos as much as I do ..read more

How perfect are the outfits Sara chose for her and her fiance Craig's engagement session? Her dress is the exact color of the water and sunset sky. The importance of choosing the right outfit for your photography sessions cannot be understated. It has the BIGGEST impact on the overall vibe of your pictures! Imagine if Sara had worn a red dress instead, it could still be beautiful, of course but we would not have achieved this soft and dreamy outcome. Something else to keep in mind when choosing a color palette for your session wardrobe is that the colors you wear reflect onto your skin,. Back ..read more

After months of gloomy and rainy weather here in San Diego, we were finally graced with a gorgeous sunny day at Sunset Cliffs for Lindsay and Chris' engagement session. These two love birds are high school sweethearts and after 10 years together they are planning to tie the knot next year in Malibu. Their session would not have been complete without a few shots with their fur baby, Pumpkin, who did an excellent job posing for pictures with the help of some tasty treats for encouragement. Lindsay's mom was kind enough to watch Pumpkin for the remainder of the photoshoot so we could capture tons ..read more

It's hard to believe that just a quick one-hour ferry trip can transport you to this beautiful island getaway on Catalina. Not only was this my first shoot on Catalina, it was also my first styled shoot. Collaborating with other photographers and wedding vendors to bring this creative vision to life was so rewarding and fun. I can't wait to go back! Who wants to come with me ..read more

These two newlyweds flew all the way from Germany for their California honeymoon. After picking up their Mustang (had to go with a classic for their American road trip) in San Francisco they drove down the coast and stopped in Laguna Beach to meet with me to capture precious memories of their trip.
