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!

When Mrs. Rodriguez contacted me to inquire about a photo session, she explained that her oldest daughter would be home from college for a short period of time over the holidays and she really wanted a family photo while the whole family was together. I love that she thought about it and we made it happen! They’re a very loving and sweet family and I’m so happy I had the chance to meet them!

I loved working with the Rodriguez family and hope they enjoyed the experience!

This sweet duo of a family is so much fun! They have such great energy and so much love! I was lucky to photograph them last year at one of our local parks, and this year we headed to the beach for a little fun in the sun and silhouettes!

It turned out to be a very breezy blustery afternoon at the beach – it was a real taste of fall weather! But we had a great time and captured some lovely images of this sweet, loving, silly and fun mother-son duo! And we were able to spend a little time enjoying the sunset and capturing some fabulous silhouettes! So much fun!

I have a lot to be thankful for in life. My family, my health, my faith, my community, my friends and my village! Back in 2007, our neighbors and friends invited us to their baby boy’s baptism. My husband and I were pretty new at the parenting gig as we had our first baby girl, who was about 6 months old at the time. We were not actively attending church or involved in our faith, but we eagerly went to the baptism. I knew immediately that I belonged in that church. My heart was touched and my faith was reawakened. Since then, we’ve been active members of our catholic church and sometimes it even feels like a second home!

One of the ways I like to give back to the church is through donating photo packages to the annual gala as part of the fund-raising for our church. And when parishioners bid on those packages, everyone wins! The church raises money, the parishioner gets a photo session and a tax benefit, and I get to work with a family from church! That’s exactly what happened with the Amsberry family, and we had a blast at the beach capturing these shots!

I’m always in awe of parents who have more than two kids. And when they’re all teens? I’m forever impressed when they’re courteous, respectful, fun, smart, outgoing and genuinely love their family. Let me just say, this family was all of that and more! They’re a super sweet and beautiful family and I hope they loved the experience!

Can’t help feeling super blessed again… I had such a fun, energetic and fantastic beach session with this beautiful mama and her adorable girls!! The energy, love and silliness between these beauties is totally contagious! I think if it was up to the little ones, we could’ve stayed all night, digging our feet in the wet sand and running to the crashing waves!
