San Juan Capistrano Baby Session [Charlie] / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

It was so hard to pick just some of my favorites of Baby Charlie! He is seriously TOO cute! The last time I photographed Charlie he was brand new to this world. Now he’s sitting up, on the verge of standing, growing all kinds of teeth and lighting up the camera with those sweet little dimples!

And boy, does he love his mama. I’m so glad I (lightly) pressured her to step in front of the lens! ūüėČ ¬†I just adore mommy & me images and am so glad Charlie’s mommy will have these years from now to remember this precious stage.

Parker Ranch Country Wedding [Sarah & Christian] / Trabuco Canyon Wedding Photographer

I first met Sarah & Christian years ago in high school. I was so thrilled when Sarah asked me to photograph their wedding and we had the chance to reconnect. A few months ago we met up at Parker Ranch and spent a couple of hours taking their engagement photos. It was then that I knew I had hit the jackpot! Not only are these two naturals in front of the camera but their love was magnetic. They are a true team, best friends and madly in love and nothing makes a photo sparkle quite like that combination!

When I arrived at Sarah’s hotel the day of the wedding, I found a Bride beaming with excitement and love for the man she was about to marry. Through tears and laughter, Sarah & Christian said “I Do”. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house (including me)!

Sarah & Christian’s wedding at Parker Ranch was every rustic Bride’s dream. Their wedding had been in the making for two years, and it showed in all the creative details. From the hanging glass bottles, the DIY photo booth and the handmade swing it was clear that Sarah, Christian and their families poured their hearts into creating a fun and beautiful wedding with loads of personality.

Thank you Sarah & Christian for allowing me to capture the most important day of your lives. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! XO
