As a few of my upcoming weddings have been postponed due to the current coronavirus pandemic, I've started turning my creative drive to new passions and projects. I take about 500 pictures of my son a day, but I usually just use my phone instead of pulling out my work camera. However, now with being stuck inside due to quarantine in California, I'm trying to rewire myself to carry about my beast instead of just going for the phone. It's so easy to get into the mindset of "My camera is for work/ ..
It's always exciting to me to be able to photograph old friend's that I haven't seen for a bit. Especially when they're HAVING A BABY. It's been ten years since I graduated high school (Santa Susana High School Class of 2010). And in those ten years many of my friends have gotten married, moved away, had babies, are having babies, etc. So to be in a profession where I am able to see these lovely people again and be there to witness these special moments, is something I am so grateful for. L..
Oh gosh, is this my first blog post of the year? Apparently so. Well, at least it's a really really good one! Laura and Rob got married on 2-22-2020 (Uh yeah, best wedding date ever I think) at the Madera Kitchen in Los Angeles. They began their day getting ready at the Line Hotel in Koreatown, which is one of the coolest LA hotels in my opinion. I think you'll see why here from the view from their room. Their day was just chalk full of attention to detail in the best way, all their font matched..
As 2019 wraps up, I continue my tradition of a year in review blog post! In addition to showing off some work, and letting my clients know how much they all mean to me, it's really fun for me to look back and remember the special details of each of these days. I tried to consciously include photos other than bride and groom portraits, because although most any wedding photographer will you tell you that bridal portraits are our favorite to do, they really compose such a short part of the d..
I'm very excited to be sharing this blog post today of a recent October wedding! The California wedding industry is so interesting, because we have weddings basically year round, there's no "off season" here. October, November, and December are just as busy as Spring and Summer! And for good reason, outdoor Summer weddings in Los Angeles can be pretty rough with high 90's weather, so it's nice to cool down a bit in the Fall. Not that this October wedding was really any cooler, it was in the high..
I am so proud of myself to be sitting down blogging right now. Since becoming a Mom everything I set out to do takes about 10x as long, so honestly just having the photos sized and ready, and this tab open to be currently writing is a huge deal for me. AND I AM PROUD. I'm proud of my work, I've still been shooting gorgeous weddings, meeting amazing people, editing, and posting on social media (sometimes), but my poor website has really been set on the back burner. I'm still here! I'm still avail..
Hey all! I'm 39 weeks pregnant, no signs of baby yet. On the one hand: I'm pretty dang uncomfortable and annoyed. On the other hand: I have some free time to blog before he comes! This post has been in the works for awhile, and then my energy and focus took a massive dive the last trimester of my pregnancy and it got put on the back burner. But now I'm here!Heather and Patrick were my wedding clients in 2017. They were the sweetest, had such a beautiful wedding, and have kept in touch since then..
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..
This amazing styled wedding/ bridal shoot took place over a year ago in November 2017 at the gorgeous MacArthur in Los Angeles. After patiently waiting- Bridal Musings picked up this shoot and published it on their blog recently! So now I can openly and proudly share these photos that I've been sitting on and dying to share with the world for so long! An incredible team of vendors came together to make this possible, mostly by the very talented Sabrina of Weddings By Sabrina who was the mastermi..
Lauren and Amber were married in June at Redbird LA in Downtown. They began at the Doubletree by Hilton across the street to get ready and then for the sweetest first look before walking over to Redbird for their intimate wedding ceremony with family and friends. Redbird is a restaurant in Los Angeles that features a private balcony for events (perfect for a small intimate wedding). Eventive Moments designed this reception space and provided the florals. Redbird provided the meal and the cake, w..
I am SUPER excited about this blog post, because it's something I've never done before! I get a lot of questions from clients about "raw/unedited" versus "edited" images. They often ask if I edit my images, what all that involves, and if they can have the raw/unedited images as well as the edited ones. And my answer to that last question is always "no". For the reason that photographers rarely if ever give out the raw/unedited images simply because they aren't a finished product. The truth is, o..
I did it! I blogged again! I am so blessed and happy to say that we are expecting our first child next January, which means I'm about 3 months pregnant currently. My first trimester has been a lot better than some, but it's also left me with some crazy fatigue that has really prevented me of doing much of anything, let alone blogging. So while thinking of that, and thinking about how overwhelming blogging was, I came up with a new solution. Blog more frequently, but with less images. Meaning, ju..
So fun fact: I had never been to Joshua Tree before this session. Joshua Tree is kind of a photographer's "bucket list" item, and so being able to go and do this shoot with my friend Lauren and her sweet son was an awesome experience! Also Lauren is a babe herself so we got to do some shots of her being a desert goddess while her cute little boy ran around and played on so many rocks. If nothing else, Joshua Tree is pretty amazing for rocks and rock formations. I don't like to do a ton of write ..
Excited to have this wedding up on the blog! Although my cat was not making it easy with her insistence on laying on my keyboard. She's a pretty terrible co-worker to be honest. Mackenzie and Jack had their wedding at The Oxnard Tower Club- which is such a cool venue. The Tower Club sits 22 floors up in the Morgan Stanley Building in Oxnard. It's views include the 101 Freeway, and the Pacific Ocean. Talk about gorgeous- especially at sunset! The staff is so sweet and the food is pretty amaz..
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..
