Peter and Ilona

I am so happy for this beautiful couple. They will be married in March, so we headed out to do some engagement portraits. It was a beautiful day and I had a lot of fun. Thanks again, you two!


All Babies Are Beautiful

Does anyone even check this bog anymore?? I have got to be better about posting.

Anyway, as I said, all babies are beautiful, this one just happens to be exceptionally so. Looking at her mother it's easy to see why.


Fun Family Session

We had this session back in JULY but I am just now getting it up. It's not a preview anymore (we had our ordering session last night) but I thought I would post some here anyway as I had so much fun shooting them!


Christmas Mini-Sessions

I am having a day of Christmas mini-sessions on October 11th. If you are interested check out all the info and sign up here.


7 Month Old Cutie

Today I got to photograph baby E whom I first met as a tiny newborn. He has gotten so big, but is still just as sweet as he was then!


Newborn Baby B

This little cutie was the most alert newborn I have ever worked with! She was so sweet. Barely made a peep though she was awake almost all of the session.


Family In Laguna Beach

I had so much fun photographing this family! I could tell they really enjoyed being together. They were referred to me by his sister, whose daughters I photographed earlier in the year. Some of my favorites so far:

Thanks for having me out guys! Hope you aren't roasting too badly back in AZ! :)


Baby *B*

This little guy was born over four weeks early and still weighed in at almost 6 and a half pounds!! After a long week in the NICU he is home and doing well. Such a sweet little guy. Slept almost the whole time. ;)

See his slideshow here.


More Cards

Another set of holiday card samples. I have lots more. Contact me if you are interested in scheduling a portrait session!


Christmas in July

I know it seems like it might be a bit early to be thinking about Christmas cards, but if your family won't change too much between now and then then it is a great time to schedule a session. I've just purchased some new Christmas card templates and I love them! Here's a small preview, stay tuned for more!



Love this new slideshow software I got! --> Hunter.


Beautiful Newborn

Baby *H* really is one of the cutest babies I have seen. And his parents aren't bad either! ;) You might remember Mommy from this post.

Congrats again!!


Casting Call Results

A few sneak peeks from my model search! This is a new look for me, I have never done high key like this before.

Thank you everyone!

I'm off to a camping trip with the youth group from our church. I'll be out of commission till Monday. See you then!


Models Needed!

I need your help! I am putting together a proposal for a local boutique and I need studio models.


Session is free of charge, portraits may be purchased for 20% off of my normal pricing which can be found here.

Session will be studio lighting only.

A model release will be required as these shots will be used for advertising.

A clothing consult will be provided.

Limit two children per session.

Please e-mail me if you are interested. Thank you!


What Should I Wear??

I hear this question a lot. So I decided I would do something about it! In the next coming weeks look for suggestions on how to dress your family for your portrait session. First up...

"Think Pink"
These are all from Gap this season.


My Girl

I can't believe how big she is getting. Look at that pose. She pulled that one all on her own.

and a couple in black and white:


New Birth Announcements

I added some new birth announcements to my collection today. I am so excited about these. They are very clean and simple. A bit vintage. Totally cute.
A couple of them:

Good News!

Thanks to all of you who participated in the mini-sessions to benefit the American Caner Society's Relay For Life I was able to donate $500.50 to Team Trevor, exceeding my fundraising goal by $.50! Yay! At 70% of its total fundraising goal, the team overall is still a bit short. The Relay For Life is this weekend. If any of you feel so inclined, please follow the link above to donate. Thank you again!


Baby Girl

It was so nice to meet this family. They have been through a lot lately but have a good attitude and I feel so blessed to have met them. Meet baby *A*.

This blanket was her dad's when he was a baby!



On the day of the mini-sessions one of the sessions brought a friend who was over for the day. She was all dressed up and SO pretty. How could I not take a few pictures of her?

Her mom really liked the portraits and so we set up a session for *A*'s sister, who also just happened to be super gorgeous.

Believe it or not, *E* was my first official senior! Thanks ladies!
