The G Family’s Holiday Mini-Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

Juliett first contacted me for her family session back in October- one day before my wedding. It was such a crazy, busy time and giving her a call to talk details about the thing I love most in the world (besides my hubby ;-)), was a welcomed distraction! We set-up a date for November during my Holiday Mini-Sessions and I’ve been anxious to share these images ever since! When I first talked to Juliett, I just knew we would have a great shoot. Not only was she incredibly sweet and trusting, she also asked about wardrobe so I had a feeling they would come dressed to impress! And that they did- I love the fun colors they choose and how well they work against the great outdoors. I also adored the bond that these beautiful twin girls shared; it really just melted my heart.

Enjoy! XO

Family & Baby Session / San Clemente Family Photographer

Wait ’til you see this little one! Baby Addison is SUCH a cutie! One look at her and you can’t help but be in a good mood. I met Addison, her parents and her Aunt at the beach for their holiday photo session and through the wind, sand-eating, smiles and a few tears…we were able to capture just how much this family loves each other! I had a blast photographing them and witnessing all the joy their new baby girl was bringing to their lives. One of my favorite things was watching how Addison’s Daddy looked at her with so much excitement and pride in his eyes. She definitely has him wrapped around her little finger 😉

Enjoy! XOXO

How beautiful is Addison’s Mommy?!
Auntie Love!

Laguna Beach Engagement Session [Veronica & Kepp] / Laguna Beach Engagement Photographer

Let me introduce you to The. Cutest. Couple. Ever. : Veronica & Kepp!

I met these two a few years back when I shot Kepp’s surprise 30th birthday party thrown by his then girlfriend, Veronica. The party was SO much fun and Kepp was blown away! It was held at the beautiful French 75 in Laguna Beach and was a 1920’s themed dress-up party. Kepp’s closest family and friends were all there decked with zoot suits, cigars and strings of pearls. I remember thinking “Wow, Veronica is the coolest girlfriend ever. This guy better put a ring on it!” 😉 And put a ring on it he did! Veronica and Kepp are getting married next year in San Francisco where Kepp proposed and I could not be happier for them! They are truly the sweetest couple, CRAZY in love and a ton of fun to be around.

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of documenting your very special love. It was such a joy- shoots like this are what make me realize how very lucky I am.

Maternity and Family Session [Forsse Family] / Coto de Caza Family Photographer

This family is near and dear to my heart. Kevin is the brother of one of my oldest friends and his wife, Carly has become one of my greatest friends as well. I have been photographing Kevin & Carly since their first “bump” and feel so honored to be their family’s photographer. I just love watching them grow! It’s hard to believe that their 2-year-old daughter Kora was once inside Mommy’s belly and now they’re waiting on bump number 2 to arrive!

With Carly’s laughter, ease and zest for life and Kevin’s quiet temperament and great sense of humor, they are the perfect team. Together they have become amazing parents and are building the most beautiful family.

Congratulations Kevin, Carly & Kora! I can’t wait to meet your baby boy in January!

Elegant Smog Shoppe Wedding [Nicole & Hayden] / Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

I absolutely loved Nicole and Hayden’s Smog Shoppe wedding!

Ever wish you could just scrap all wedding plans, elope & come home to a big party? That’s just what Nicole & Hayden did…and what a party it was! We started our day at the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills & ended it at the Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles where Considerate Done Event Design had the place decked out! From the emerald green Christian Louboutins to the crocheted white gloves, vintage car, framed family photos and tons of Spanish flare…this event screamed elegance, style and family tradition. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the Bride is a graphic designer and owner of Design the Details!

Feast your eyes on this one and enjoy! Thank you Nicole & Hayden for the honor of documenting your big day!!

*I was SO excited and honored to have this wedding featured on Style Me Pretty as well!
