{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

Southern Utah Maternity Session {Ashlee and Mason}

Southern Utah Maternity Session {Ashlee and Mason}

I absolutely love seeing baby bumps, and especially love it when I know I’ll get to spend lots of time holding and loving on the little baby inside of them! My sweet sister is having a baby soon, and because I live five minutes away from her, I get to go snuggle that little cutie whenever I want! All the fun of babies without losing sleep myself!  I’m so excited to see my sister and her husband Mason become parents, I know they’ll be amazing at it and their little boy will be SO loved! Enjoy these sweet photos of the bump that will soon be my nephew! 🙂  2016-10-01_0002 2016-10-01_0004 2016-10-01_0005 2016-10-01_0009 2016-10-01_0011 2016-10-01_0013 2016-10-01_0017 2016-10-01_0019

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!

A Classic Winter {Remembering 2013}

A Classic Winter {Remembering 2013}

This was one of my favorite shoots last year- whether it be the unexpected winter snow in the Southern Utah Desert or the beautiful dresses or amazingly beautiful ladies in this session, I’m not sure what exactly made it so dreamy.  But I remember editing these and just loving them! And now a year later I just had to post them so you can all enjoy the beauty with me! I’d love to see how much these girls have grown since last year and see their little brother who was in his momma’s tummy in these photos.  Maybe next winter we’ll get another snow and follow up with them! Happy Holidays!

Keeping up with the Joneses

Keeping up with the Joneses

I know, I know the title is totally cliche and I’m sure Becky is rolling her eyes at the overused pun on their name! But I couldn’t help myself and it couldn’t be more true of this family.  They are truly a family you want to follow with their happy energy and glowing example of love and friendship! They are an active and involved family from surfing to skateboarding, to giving service both at home and abroad.  Becky is one of the first friends I made here in San Clemente and she has opened a whole world of SoCal adventures to me.  I love her for that and for always making things interesting and fun! Her kids are so sweet and my kids absolutely adore them.  It was fun to do a photo swap this year for family pictures, and I’ll soon share all the lovely images she captured of my crazy brood.  So without further adieu, here is the Jones family, captured at San Onofre beach!

This has been my first busy photography season in San Clemente and on this particular evening I was more than a little bit stressed due to the amount of families and photographers around the pier.  I started worrying I wouldn’t be able to do this little family justice. But my stress was a waste of energy because in the end there was more than enough beach to go around and we got some absolutely beautiful photos of this family of three! Kelly, Phil and Grace were such a joy to photograph and their love for each other was so apparent.  Grace wanted to look everywhere but at the camera, and who can blame her, the beach is a pretty awesome place to people watch! Enjoy a glimpse into this cute family!  2014-12-08_0012
