Katie and Andrew's Golden Hour Engagement Session

Happy Friday! We're finally getting some rain here in Southern California. Rain always makes me want to leave the house and go on crazy far away adventures. But since my car only has one working light, and my windshield wipers desperately need to be changed, and my tire pressure light just came on yesterday,  here I am at the Starbucks down the street. And I realized- I've NEVER done work at Starbucks before. I usually stay at home to work, and I never really understood why so many peop..

27 Favorite Photographs in 2017

This was one of my first sessions in 2017! Natalie and Davey were so cozy and snuggly and it gave me all the warm feelings. Not like I needed warm feelings when our winters in California are about 80 degrees. But still! I really tried to get away from stiff posing last year, and lean more towards gentle guiding and then letting the couple just do their thing!I mean, how could I not choose this? Shawna and Derek are my best and closest friends, and I was so lucky to be able to use them as models ..

Cameron and Daniel's Simi Valley Engagement Session

Cameron and Daniel are planning a December wedding at the gorgeous Camarillo Ranch House, and wanted an equally rustic and romantic location for their engagement session. I knew just the place! Corriganville Park on the very edge of Simi Valley is an amazing location that is always different at different times of the year! I did a bridal shoot here back in January (See Here!)  so I had an idea of how it would look, but I was SO excited to find these gorgeous red flowers all around when..

Elena and Orion's Spring Oak Park Engagement Session

Elena and Orion chose the Oak Park Community Center and Garden for their Spring engagement session, and I'm so glad that they did! The flowers and gorgeous Spring light really made this location more beautiful than I've ever seen it before. And as far as couples go, Elena and Orion were just as sunny and colorful as the garden we were in. They spent their session laughing, kissing, and teasing each other, and were just  a genuinely fun and happy couple to be around. And Orion defi..

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!"..

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..

Chloe and Eric's Westlake Village Inn Couple's Session

Chloe and Eric attended a black tie wedding as guests, and decided to do a session beforehand to show off their fancy duds. (Duds is a word I use apparently). The gorgeous Westlake Village Inn was the perfect backdrop for their portraits, with it's beautiful colors and architecture. ..
