Welcome! And thank you for visiting my blog!  I hope you will find inspiration, stories of love and hope, pretty much all the happy emotions you can name, all mixed in with pretty pictures.  Florist adorns spaces with flowers. And I adorn life with photographs.  So sit back, grab a cup of warm tea, and take a trip where you never even knew you wanted to visit...

I tell ya, this was the year of classy, backyard weddings! And this one was by far one of my favorites! Set in a ranch in beautiful apple-valley Beaumont, everything screamed country -chic! From the cowboy boots to the crystal chandeliers, not one detail went unnoticed! And you know what else didn’t go un-noticed? The […]

You know that feeling when you walk in to shoot a wedding and you immediately feel like you’re the guest of honor?  Well, I hope all wedding photographers experience that at least once.  Shooting this intimate backyard wedding made me redefine what my ideal client is.  Warm, friendly, genuine and humble!  They were the cutest […]

It was a warm summer day with a gentle summer breeze.  The setting was Los Willos, a private wedding estate tucked away in the mountains of Fallbrook, California.  They were two high school sweet hearts with 100 of their closest family and friends.  The rest, well, it’s the stuff that photography fairy tales are made […]

Brittany & Ryan were the sweetest couple to work with.  And they had an amazing team of vendors that effortlessly executed every last detail.  When I asked Brittany if she had worked with a designer or planner she […]

In the mist of planning my own wedding, and being a wedding photographer, it suddenly dawned on me that I may have some insider information that would be very useful (and time saving) for a lot of future brides out there! So here it is, my first, unplanned, project of 2017! In the next series […]

He wore the same outfit he wore 10 years ago when they first got married.  They had the leis.  They were in Santa Barbara enjoying a romantic weekend get-away.  And their photographer (that’s me!) was on her way from Los Angeles on a Sunday afternoon for […]

One of my favorite aspects of photographing family sessions is that I get to see the kids grow and their personalities start to shine thru the portraits. I have photographed this sweet family of 8, including twins and teddy bears, since the youngest turned 1! It’s such a delight (and challenge) to see them play […]

I am so thrilled to share this gem of a wedding with you!  This wedding was a total dream.  Abi and Vance took stepping outside the box to a whole ‘nother level! These two traveled all the way from Pennsylvania to say their nuptials in sunny Southern California. And they brought a whole lotta east […]

2016 holiday portrait season is in full swing, and it’s only October!  Can I tell you how blessed I feel to be able to partake in creating these memories?  I absolutely love seeing my clients year after year, seeing their kids grow, and on some level, feeling like I too, am part of that family.
