As the year closes I'm reflecting on everything that's happened in 2018, especially in regards to my business. And two thoughts keep coming to mind:1. I never in a million years expected to be on this path as of a few years ago.2. This path is hardI took my first photography class at 17. I loved it and never once considered it to be a career. I'm turning 27 next year (yikes) and I cannot believe how far I've come. From a Canon Rebel T3i to here, building a business and brand totally from scratch..
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..
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 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..
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!"..
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 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. ..
Natalie and Davey were such a joy to work with for this cuddly golden hour couple's session. What a joy to be able to photograph people in love. <3..
