Personal Project- Surrealism/ Self Portraits

Hello! I hope everyone's April is going well- mine is picking up slowly but surely! A couple of weeks ago I had some time to do a personal project that I had been contemplating for awhile. This shoot was based off an image I saw months ago and I loved, and I went into it with only that one idea in mind. While out shooting I had some more ideas, and it was such a beautiful Spring day that I ended up staying out for 3 hours working on these portraits (and then many hours after post processing and ..

Chelsea's Simi Valley Winter Bridal Session

I'm finally getting around to blogging this session on my own, and honestly I don't know why it took me so long because this was one of my favorite sessions to date. In January part of this session was featured on LDS Bride Blog (A blog specifically showcasing Latter Day Saint/ Mormon weddings). See It Here! Chelsea was married in 2011 in the Los Angeles Temple, and never had time to do a bridal session, so I was happy to do this session for her! We did this session in late December in..

Tessa and Brian's Corriganville Regional Park Maternity Session

I had the privilege to photograph Tessa and Brian and their little one(s) in Corriganville Regional Park in Simi Valley. We had just had some nice rains the couple of weeks before so everything was still beautiful and green. This family was so fun to work with and their little boy had such a great personality! I love being able to photograph families in love!"A plane!"..

Christina and David's Griffith Observatory Engagement Session

These two chose such a fun and unique spot to take their engagement photos! The Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park Los Angeles is such an iconic place, and the architecture and views of Downtown Los Angeles made for some super fun photographic opportunities! These two were so fun to be with and weren't afraid to show off their love in front of some crowds visiting the Observatory. I'm so excited to shoot their wedding in a few months! Enjoy these photos of Christina and David!..

Queen of Hearts Styled Wedding Shoot at Hartley Botanica

This Alice in Wonderland inspired Romantic Tea Party styled shoot took place in Somis, CA at the beautiful Hartley Botanica Gardens and Nursery. This was a coming together of many wedding professionals in Ventura County, CA. The couple is a real couple who met through a shared love of swing dancing. We wanted to incorporate both the "tea party" theme of the bride wearing a tea length dress and quaint tablescapes, as well as the Alice in Wonderland "Queen of Hearts" theme- with her tiara a..

Martin and Julie's Simi Valley Backyard Wedding Reception

This summer backyard wedding reception was a joy to photograph. Martin and Julie were married and sealed in the Los Angeles California Temple, and then came home to Simi Valley to celebrate. There's nothing quite like golden hour in Southern California- it's definitely a wedding photographer's dream. It's especially dreamy when paired with rustic DIY decor in a gorgeous backyard. My favorite detail was the cardboard cut-out of the Groom's brother, who could not attend the wedding due to serving ..

Sara and Andrew's Oak Park Puppy Session

When Sara and Andrew asked me if their German Shepherd Pup could be part of their photo session, my answer was an absolute "YES!" Seriously, how cute is this little family? Plus the dog hair on Andrew's pants really resonated with me as a cat owner who always has hair on her pants...
