Emily and Sacramento Kings ball player, Malachi are expecting a little one! They celebrated baby boy Kody at a private home in Hollywood Hills surrounded by their family and closest friends. Emily's cousin, Kami pulled the entire thing together and it was absolutely beautiful! They had the most epic cake, photo booth, and crowd. Enjoy!

A DANA POINT FAMILY SESSION

I got to photograph one of my favorite families, the Holmes! It takes a lot to get this many people together and all in sync, but they did it and nailed their outfits! The thing they learned is to pick a color scheme, which allows everyone to wear the same color, but also mix and match patterns and shades. Enjoy some of our favorites!

The Greenbergs: Los Angeles Family Session

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!
