Family Session | Disneyland | Anaheim, CA

Changing the lyrics a little for this session — “We are Fa - Ma - Leeee! I’ve got Mickey Mouse with me! Get up everybody and SANG!!”

When Viktoriya reached out to set up her Disney session for her son Axel’s 5th birthday she mentioned he had NEVER been to California Adventure - or better yet his absolute favorite, Cars Land! The amount of variety we were able to utilize for the session is a testament to the imagineers of these timeless parks.

How cute are their outfits

Axel had to grab a photo with his all time favorite Mater!

Concluding the day at the Mickey Wheel looks like it could be an ad. I enjoyed having the amazing details of the park to utilize for picture perfect moments for this adorable family.


Baby Shower | Brentwood Country Club, CA

Two baby girls are on their way this spring! It was meant to be that sisters, Lauren and Kathryn are both expecting, AND are due just a few weeks apart. 

So much love went into this celebration and the whole event felt like it was straight out of a fairy tale. The story book cookies and customized tea cup treats were so clever and tied all the details together.

I cannot wait to meet these lucky little girls!


Family Session | El Matador Beach | Malibu, CA

El Matador Beach was even more beautiful than I imagined.  It's stunning to see the cliffs of the coast when you first arrive, only to discover a breathtaking drop-off that revealed the beach. Janelle and Jin are wonderfully down to earth and upon meeting them, I instantly felt like we'd been friends for years. They're little guy Elliot is such a sweet pea! Those kissable cheeks were perfectly rosy from the ocean breeze, loved all his little expressions.

Enjoy some highlights from their first family session! 

Family Session | Del Mar, CA

I sure do love a good sandy, summer session - this one was particularly special down in Del Mar because grandma and grandpa were visiting from the east coast! This little guy is just two years old and was loving all the wonders of tide pools & sea foam. I melted getting him to smile and show those adorable dimples! Enjoy this nautical family session, I hope it brings a little joy to your day! 

Rita + Wes | Family Portraits | Malibu, CA

It's no secret, December is full of hustle and bustle. I am so thankful for tonight's shoot in the peace of Solstice Canyon with two of the sweetest newlyweds EVER, Rita &Wes. It was so special to meet their senior rescue doggies, June and Tina!

It's so special to photograph another photographer who I have so much respect for. Rita does amazing work with her own business {link here} --> Rita Earl Photography.  Her work is stunning. She works closely with Angel City Pit Bulls, an organization that tries to find forever homes for four legged friends. Wonderful people with huge hearts! 


Ms. Tina not only matched my car, she hopped right in as if to say, "Move over sister, I'm driving."  

Zinn Girls | Family Portraits | Irvine, CA

How sweet are these sisters?! This was a surprise shoot organized by the Zinn sisters and their Dad to surprise their Mom for her upcoming birthday!

The last time all four girls were in a family shoot was as little ones! Their idea was such a wonderful reminder to make time to celebrate today as we all change and grow. Just when I couldn't think this shoot could not get any more adorable, Ms. Claudia their fun sized pooch shared her doggie smile and stole my heart. LOVE!

 I cannot wait to hear how surprised their Mom is!!

Bell Family | Irvine, CA

This was a special shoot for me. I haven't seen Heather since high school. And now that she's a wife and mommy, I finally had the chance to meet her wonderful husband and vibrantly ADORABLE kids! 

We had our own little fall wonderland to play in at the Irvine Park complete with pumpkins, a mini train track, and plenty of leaves to play in! I loved having the honor of documenting the nuances of Grayson's facial expressions and Savannah's playful personality with their loving mommy and daddy!

Enjoy these special moments of the beautiful Bell Family!


Ross Family | Malibu, CA

Prepare for cuteness overload!

Lauren and Brad were such a delight! They were the absolute sweetest, and their little guy, Brandon stole my heart with his giggles, happy squeals, and those sparkling, baby blues!

And what's a proper family portrait without the PUPS!

Malibu State Creek Park was the perfect location for sun beams,, hidden streams, and low hanging branches Brad and Lauren bravely ventured to climb for beautiful romantic moments.

Special thank you so much to Miguel for helping during the whole shoot, mucho amor!
