THOMAS WEDDING: SNEAK PEEK

I cannot express how honored and grateful and lovely it is to photograph all of my clients, but to photograph this wedding in particular, it means so much to me. I met Nicole in high school and it feels we instantly became best friends, having sleep overs and making pancakes at her house, writing notes back and forth, laughing deep laughs. So to see that Nicole has found someone like Mike, a fun loving, adoring (and adored) man, I have joy. So much joy.

And speaking of joy, I am almost certain I was laughing and smiling the whole day. The groomsmen bow ties was a great start to that laughter. They had actual bow ties that needed to be tied, rather than a clip-on, and none of them knew how to tie it. YouTube was of no use, other than for comedic relief and images to aspire to. Luckily, after over an hour of researching and attempting to do it, they were able to find someone who knew how to tie a bow tie. Lesson learned – bow ties are MUCH harder to put together than a tie.

While taking photos with Nicole & Mike outside in the 35 deg. night, a kind stranger was walking into his apartment building and asked us if we’d like to check it out, as there was a staircase he thought was good for photos, he told us how he used them in photos of his girlfriend on Halloween. Low and behold, it’s a beautiful old building and that dude was so sweet to ask. Because yes. They were perfect.

The whole day was perfect. I’m so happy for you Nicole and Mike and I hope you love these sneak peeks! xoxo

LINDA & MICHAEL WEDDING SNEAK PEEK

The smoked filled sky that covered Palmdale on Labor Day weekend did not stop these two from having a gorgeous, loved-filled wedding day! Being from the Antelope Valley myself and being Linda’s daughter-in-law blog photographer, it felt really familial and I am extrememly honored to have been able to capture it.  These are just a few sneak peaks from their special day, I just couldn’t wait to share. xoxo

ULLOA FAMILY I In-Home Session

In-Home sessions are some of my most favorite sessions; the comfort and intimacy of it all is beautiful. I even think, everyone should be photographed in/at their home at least one time in their life because it offers a memory unlike any other! A glimpse into your now.

I photographed this family back in May of this year and was in awe of their home. And the dance party at the end was something I still feel priveledged to have witnessed and been able to capture.

MCGREGOR FAMILY

Mmmkay, where is the fairy blogger? Because I am a bit behind. I’ll get there though! First up, the beautiful McGregor family.

This family of three is turning into a family of four and wanted some family photos in their space. I always feel so honored when I am invited into someone’s house to capture a glimpse of their everyday life. It makes for a special memory. At the last minute, we decided to also head over to the park down the street, so Ethan, their little one, could get some energy out. Both the park and their home was a dream. And by scrolling down, you’ll see the big big big hug Ethan gives his parents….and my heart melts.

We Heart Mommy Mini Sessions

In celebration of Mother’s Day this year, I worked on a collaboration with Fit4Mom Los Angeles to show some love for their mamas with a “hot air balloon” full of hearts and love! These “We Heart Mommy” minis were so incredibly adorable and unique to each babies personality! I loved how each of them took to the balloon in their own way and how that came across in the session. Scroll to see some of the highlights below.

LIFESTYLE SESSION: SHELLEY

I first “met” Shelley over Instagram and started “comment flirting” immediately.   This mama has a brilliant spirit and can make your mouth water with her images of the food she makes! She is so warm and easy to connect with, it’s seems fitting for her to be a blogger. I loved our photo adventure together around Carlsbad, it felt like hanging out with a good friend. xoxox, Shelley! You are stunning.

ZARRINKHAK FAMILY SESSION

This family. It is so special to me when someone reaches out for photos, especially a friend from my childhood (is high school years considered childhood?) Regardless, I was so thrilled to be asked to take these family photos and even more special, they took time out of their vacation time to do so! I am honored, truly. The Antelope Valley is a windy place, but we used it to our advantage and it added as comic relief when that wind picked up. 🙂 Also, aren’t they all so darling and dashing in their attire?! They were so full of love for each other and even made me feel loved (I was apart of the family selfie after the session!).
