A BACKYARD FAMILY SESSION

Absolutely LOVED this backyard family session with The Greenbergs. We met in the middle of the day for a quick session and the light was GORGEOUS! Grandad was there, too to join in and of course we had include their fur baby. I love sessions like this because they're already in their comfort zone and can just hang out. I let the boys play a little and have fun, but also snapped some posed photos.

The Hui family was so so sweet and total troopers for waking up to meet at 6AM! So dang early, but man that morning light is GOLD!! It was so dreamy! We wandered around a bit and were able to get some beautiful images with the morning light right behind them.

Best of 2017!

2017 was quite a year!! It consisted of bags always being packed because lots of traveling, ALL the weddings (11 of my own, 44 second shooting), adventurous and fun couples, new gear and too many memories to count! I photographed couples in Chicago, San Francisco, Napa, Oakland, New York and many more places. I visited Detroit for the first time and photographed a wedding for Swanky Fine Art Weddings. I traveled to Seattle with my family for the first time and photographed a sweet couple in Georgetown. I went to Ireland, England and France with my friends Adrian and Sheri and we were able to photograph some gorgeous couples in each country. I shot an elopement in Laguna Beach and we got drenched, including my gear, but we all survived. I'm excited for all the adventures to come in 2018 and can only hope they live up to this year's adventures!

The Paynes: Huntington Beach Family Photographer

A HUNTINGTON BEACH FAMILY VACATION

The Payne family is such a sweet bunch! I photographed Luisa's cousin's proposal and engagement in 2016, so when her family decided to do their annual trip to California, she contacted me for family photos. We met up in Huntington Beach near where they were staying. With kids, you know their attention span is only so long, so we made it a quick shoot while still getting great shots. Enjoy!

The Chapins: Laguna Niguel Family Portraits

A SWEET FAMILY SESSION IN THE PARK

Every family session is fun, but this family session takes the cake for the most fun! The Chapin family is so so sweet and such a hilarious bunch! Stephanie and I met at an event I was photographing for her church. She mentioned wanting to do a family session, so we made sure to exchange contact info and I was so excited when I heard from her a couple days later. She was worried her family would complain about photos since their last family photo was years ago, but they were so easy going and helpful! Whenever I was photographing the kids, the moms were all behind me making sure the kids were looking at me, smiling/laughing - I really wish we had a photo of that! One unexpected thing was Stephanie's son in law, Steve is my neighbor's son! I had no idea, so it was really great to make another connection!
