I don’t say it lightly when I say I feel blessed to live in beautiful San Diego. Blessed to be able to access our lovely beaches, and to meet with families for on location beach photo sessions!

The Muther family have been friends of my family for many years – first meeting through church, in the Ministry of Mothers and the church nursery. Our kiddos are now at the same school, so we even get to see each other more often!

To say there are a ton of photographers in San Diego, is like saying there’s a lot of sand at the beach! So I’m always so grateful when families choose me to help capture photos of a little slice in time with their loved ones! Truly makes me feel blessed❤

San Diego Senior Portraits Photographer {Welch Sneak Peek}

Senior year of high school is such an exciting time! Surprisingly, I remember it oh so well, even though it feels like it was a million years ago for me! Having Senior Portraits taken is definitely a rite of passage, signifying such an important milestone on the horizon: graduating from high school and the start of a new chapter in life! I’m always thrilled to work with high school seniors and  was ecstatic to meet the Welch family and photograph their eldest son!

Not only are these photos important for announcements, invitations and yearbook, but they really are a magnificent way to capture a time in life filled with so much promise and possibility, transitioning from child to adult, taking steps that will help form the adult they will become!

I had such a fabulous time getting to know this handsome young man and his beautiful mom! I know he has an amazing senior year and future ahead of him!

We have such beautiful beaches in San Diego, it’s hard not to take advantage of the scenery with outdoor photo sessions! I love working with families to enjoy our gorgeous city and the unique landscapes at the different beaches.

Part of the territory that comes along with scheduling photo sessions at the beach, is not knowing what conditions will be like on the day of the session. We had really high tide and a thick marine layer, with lots of clouds making the sun play peek-a-boo with us! We may or may not have dodged a few waves, but we had a great time capturing some lovely images of this gorgeous family!


The Welch family was wonderful to work with and I hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I loved photographing them!

San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby Dean Sneak Peek}

Some of the most exciting calls I get for a photo session are from previous photo clients! I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was to receive a message from Baby Dean’s mom about her new bundle of joy. We met a few years ago when I photographed her maternity session while she was pregnant with her first son and I’ve wondered how their adorable family was doing in the world!

I was ecstatic to hear they were doing well and she wanted to schedule a session for her new son! Baby Dean was almost 7 weeks old for our session, and I loved that he was so expressive in so many shots! Not only did I photograph the baby, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph the whole family and they were wonderful to work with! They’re all gorgeous and amazingly nice. Not only did they make my job easy, but I loved spending time with them and seeing how much love they all have for each other!

Baby Dean’s Daddy is a drummer, so they had the awesome idea of incorporating part of Dad’s beautiful drum kit into the session! How cool is that?!

Baby Dean is one lucky little man to have such a wonderful family! Beautiful mom with an amazing heart, cool musical dad and awesome big brother; he really is a lucky little guy! I really loved spending time with the whole family and hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby Nick Sneak Peek}

Meeting new families, capturing a little slice of time, especially with a new little one, that’s what makes it amazing to be a photographer! I was so happy to get to work with Baby Nick, his big sister, parents and grandfather, too!

When I’m contacted about photographing a newborn session, many times the first question I hear is “they’re past the 10 days, is it too late?” I always respond that they’ll never be as little as they are right then and there! Of course, the sweet spot for photographing newborns is when they’re 5-7 days old – they’re still tiny and curled up, sleeping lots, and they’re belly button has usually healed by that point – but it’s never too late for a newborn session! What do you think?

I really loved meeting the whole family and hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!
