{Southern California Family Session} Cohen Family

Mark and Ellen are doing everything right as far as I can see when it comes to raising some pretty awesome humans! These kids are so respectful, kind and have so much love for one another! This is my second time photographing them and I love that they make me feel like one of the family! These kids are full of personality and we took WAY too many pictures, but how can you resist all the adorable poses and smiles from these four? Thanks Cohen family, it’s always my honor to capture you all together! 🙂  2016-10-06_0225 2016-10-06_0214 2016-10-06_0217 2016-10-06_0220 2016-10-06_0222

1 Year Old Session {John}

1 Year Old Session {John}

One of my favorite people in the world, Emilee, has these two wild and crazy adorable sons. I met her when she had only one son, who was very busy and active! I wondered how she could possibly have the energy for another child, and another busy one at that! Apparently she’s supermom and can handle it, because her second born son, John, is just as quick, agile and active as his big brother Seth! We captured some fun 1 year old photos of him a little while ago and I wanted to share them with you all here! Loved the overalls, love his big blue eyes and the little curls in his fine baby blonde hair! I wish I could see this cutie every day still, he has the most hilarious giggle…you’d all die if you heard it! Enjoy!

Corporate Headshot Session {Lydia}

Corporate Headshot Session {Lydia}

Lydia has the most breathtaking beauty and while she is not a professional model, her photos were some of my favorite I’ve ever taken! I loved working with the light, her flawless hair and her gorgeous beautiful eyes! If you are in need of some modern, eye catching head shots or for a new LinkedIn profile pic, look no further! I’ve got you covered!  2016-10-06_0001 2016-10-06_0004 2016-10-06_0007 2016-10-06_0010 2016-10-06_0011 2016-10-06_0017 2016-10-06_0019 2016-10-06_0022 2016-10-06_0025 2016-10-06_0023 2016-10-06_0030 2016-10-06_0036 2016-10-06_0039 2016-10-06_0041 2016-10-06_0045

San Clemente Session- Davies Family

This family, man oh man do I love them! Sara is one of the most kindred spirits I know, destined to be a friend forever. And her two beautiful daughters- well they are pretty spectacular already as well! I guess some credit can go to their daddy, who is also quite a winner! 🙂 I loved capturing their family photos last year soon after baby Jane was born. You can see her newborn session HERE! I miss my friend Sara so very much but I’m grateful I got to capture these images for her sweet family!  2016-01-29_0071 2016-01-29_0092 2016-01-29_0091 2016-01-29_0090 2016-01-29_0089 2016-01-29_0088 2016-01-29_0087 2016-01-29_0086 2016-01-29_0085 2016-01-29_0084 2016-01-29_0083 2016-01-29_0082 2016-01-29_0081 2016-01-29_0080 2016-01-29_0079 2016-01-29_0078 2016-01-29_0077 2016-01-29_0076 2016-01-29_0075 2016-01-29_0074 2016-01-29_0073 2016-01-29_0072 2016-01-29_0093 Contact me NOW to book your family session!

San Clemente Session- Millionaire Status, The Reason Our Lives Changed!

San Clemente Session- Millionaire Status, The Reason Our Lives Changed!

This session. This is the one that changed my life. Literally. When Tara contacted me in need of some quick photos for their new website I had no idea how that would change the trajectory of my life forever.  I expected corporate headshots and was a little confused about the casual beach location but wasn’t one to question the client :)! Even during the session I didn’t ask what they did or why they wanted to jump for joy or have silly poses. I discovered soon after they were launching a new podcast called 8 Minute Millionaire- and that’s when it all went down. We started listening to their podcast. We got to know their world, and we realized we wanted that world for ourselves. Scroll to the end to read the rest of the story, and enjoy this adorable power couple along the way… 2016-01-30_0067 2016-01-30_0068 2016-01-30_0069 2016-01-30_0070 2016-01-30_0071 2016-01-30_0072 2016-01-30_0073 2016-01-30_0074 2016-01-30_0075 2016-01-30_0076 2016-01-30_0077 2016-01-30_0078 2016-01-30_0079 2016-01-30_0080 2016-01-30_0081 2016-01-30_0082 2016-01-30_0083 2016-01-30_0084 2016-01-30_0085 2016-01-30_0086 2016-01-30_0087 2016-01-30_0089 2016-01-30_0088 2016-01-30_0090 2016-01-30_0091 2016-01-30_0092 2016-01-30_0093 2016-01-30_0094 2016-01-30_0095 2016-01-30_0096 2016-01-30_0097 2016-01-30_0099 2016-01-30_0098 Just like in this last photo, we never looked back. We were catapulted into a new life of full time entrepreneurship where the sky was the limit, not Ben’s job. We could literally do anything we wanted and nobody could tell us no. The only limits on our potential were self imposed. We started online business, trudged through the hard days and learned more than we ever thought possible in a few months time. And now, almost a year after this session, our lives are completely changed and we are conquering the world of online business!  They have inspired so much change in our lives, and while I’m sad those changes took us out of sunny San Clemente, I’m so happy to know I have friends in these two forever!

Orange County Destination Wedding Photographer {Catie and Tim}

Orange County Destination Wedding Photographer {Catie and Tim}

I was more than delighted to capture her wedding to the love of her life, Tim. The two met while working together in corporate for In-N-Out Burger and fell fast in love. They are probably the most gracious couple I’ve photographed and did not want all the pomp and circumstance that comes with a wedding. They just wanted to publicly display their love and commitment to those closest to them in a beautiful church in Old Town Orange. It was simply beautiful! Following their ceremony they enjoyed incredible cuisine at Mastro’s Ocean Club in Newport Beach. It was the perfect celebration of pure and true love and I’m so honored I got to capture the most important moments of their special day! Check out the fun detail at the end that brings everything full circle!  2015-10-26_0001 2015-10-26_0002 2015-10-26_0003 2015-10-26_0004 2015-10-26_0005 2015-10-26_0006 2015-10-26_0007 2015-10-26_0008 2015-10-26_0009 2015-10-26_0010 2015-10-26_0011 2015-10-26_0012 2015-10-26_0013 2015-10-26_0014 2015-10-26_0015 2015-10-26_0016 2015-10-26_0017 2015-10-26_0018 2015-10-26_0019 2015-10-26_0020 2015-10-26_0021 2015-10-26_0022 2015-10-26_0023 2015-10-26_0024 2015-10-26_0025 2015-10-26_0026 2015-10-26_0027 2015-10-26_0028 2015-10-26_0029 2015-10-26_0030 2015-10-26_0031 2015-10-26_0032 2015-10-26_0033 2015-10-26_0034 2015-10-26_0035 2015-10-26_0036 2015-10-26_0037 2015-10-26_0038 2015-10-26_0039 2015-10-26_0040 2015-10-26_0041 2015-10-26_0042 2015-10-26_0043 2015-10-26_0044 2015-10-26_0045 2015-10-26_0046 2015-10-26_0047 2015-10-26_0048 2015-10-26_0049 2015-10-26_0050 2015-10-26_0051 2015-10-26_0052 2015-10-26_0053 2015-10-26_0054 2015-10-26_0055 2015-10-26_0056 2015-10-26_0057 2015-10-26_0058 2015-10-26_0059 2015-10-26_0060 2015-10-26_0061 2015-10-26_0062 2015-10-26_0063 2015-10-26_0064 2015-10-26_0065 2015-10-26_0066 2015-10-26_0067 2015-10-26_0068 2015-10-26_0069 2015-10-26_0070 2015-10-26_0071 2015-10-26_0072 2015-10-26_0073 2015-10-26_0074 2015-10-26_0075 2015-10-26_0076 2015-10-26_0077 2015-10-26_0078 2015-10-26_0079 2015-10-26_0080 2015-10-26_0081 2015-10-26_0082 2015-10-26_0083 2015-10-26_0084 2015-10-26_0085 2015-10-26_0086 2015-10-26_0087
