Stephanie & Brandon- Orange County Maternity Photography

2016-09-06_0009.jpg
Six years ago Stephanie & Brandon sat on my little couch in my client meeting room. We talked for a long time and laughed a TON about awesome costume parties. I just remember thinking how I wanted to go to one of their parties! I had the opportunity to photograph them at their wedding (awesome party!). From bringing a motorcycle to their engagement session, to rocking a short dress on her wedding day, they have always proven to be a sassy couple. And now Stephanie is a sassy mama! Check out her maternnity session.

Two Years Old!

2016-09-06_0001.jpg
I met Neha & Sheel when they were getting married. Now their little one is turning TWO! Such a cutie with the most amazing hair (I’m a little jealous)! I know she brings so much joy to her family.

11 Months with Cooper

2016-08-04_0001.jpg

Unbelievable.

This little man has been with us for 11 months! Well longer than that really. For a time in my belly, but for many years as a dream in our hearts. We love this little boy oh so much. The one year mark is creeping up on us and we are enjoying watching him grow and learn.

Cooper’s preferred mode of movement is a swift army crawl. He loves to get into anything he shouldn’t. Loves to go on walks. Has mastered the art of the doorway bouncer/swing. Loves to wind himself up and spin, spin, spin! He goes crazy in the pool, trying to swim. Laughs at funny dog videos. Eats pretty much anything we put in front of him, including steak and salmon. Gives “kisses”. Has two teeth nubbins. Imitaes daddy’s facial expressions. Has discovered his ability to scream (for fun). Cooper brings so much joy to all of his family.

Molly & Ben- Maravilla Gardens Wedding- Camarillo Wedding Photographer

Maravilla Gardens Wedding, Camarillo, CA,025 Garden Wedding.JPG
I’ve said it beefore and I’ll say it again. Maravilla Gardens is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. It’s just magical. And every couple that I get the chance to photograph there are just the best! Molly & Ben are no different. They met at Dartmouth and live in Massachusetts, so the first time we met was over Skype. I loved them right away.
Fun facts about these two, Ben was a competitive skiier for Dartmouth, while Molly is pursuing her dream to be a marine biologist. I have rad clients. 🙂

Babies.
They disrupt your lives in the best way possible. Now that I’ve had my own, I come into new parents homes with a new understanding. They’ve only been parents for a few days. They’re trying to figure it all out. Hoping they will sleep again, and so taken by this new little person who has stolen their hearts.

Such an honor to be invited into this family’s life. I especially love when I’ve gotten to know the couple through their early marriage, pregnancy and now becoming parents. I can’t wait to see what this little guy grows up to be!

10 Months with Cooper

2016-07-01_0014.jpg
I can’t believe my little guy is 10 months old! He’s getting so big and we’re quickly approaching one year! Unbelievable.
Cooper is 22 lbs. (78th percentile) and 2 ft 6 in tall (99th percentile!). He is most likely going to eat us out of house and home since he pretty much eats as much as I do. He will eat just about anything we put in front of him. Still no teeeth. We’re convinced he doesn’t need them since he eats chicken, asparagus, etc. with no teeth. He has mastered the army crawl and is into everything. He’s quick! We have epic games of peek-a-boo, loves long walks in his stroller, and has a blast splashing in the pool. Cooper says Mama and Dada and gave kisses when we asked him to yesterday. We love our little guy like crazy and are so proud of our friendly little dude.

Baby Celeste- Aliso Viejo Newborn Photography

Orange County, Aliso Viejo Newborn Photos, Photography 001.JPG
Seems like we are on the cusp of another wave of babies being born! At least in my little world. I met this little bundle of joy a little while ago. The sweetest little petite thing. Her little lips and the twinkle in her eye. So precious!

Jed & Sonia- Marina Del Rey Marriott Wedding

Marina del Rey Marriott Indian Wedding 030.JPG
From the moment I saw Sonia at her friend Palak’s wedding, I thought, “I want to photograph that girl!” So you can imagine my joy when, many years later, she asked me to photograph her wedding. But I had no idea just how epic it would be!

Dustin & Sarah- Franciscan Gardens Wedding- San Juan Capistrano Photographer

Franciscan Gardens Wedding San Juan Capistrano001.JPG
The flowers. Her dress. The day was full of so many beautiful details. But the ones that stand out the most to me have nothing to do with anything that can be bought. The look on her dad’s face when he saw his little girl as a bride. The tears she shed as she saw her groom for the first time. The moment the power went out on the whole block and they scrambled to have some sort of music for them to walk down the aisle to. The solution: an iphone, and a car stereo turned up full blast!

OK I have to tell you about this gift Dustin gave Sarah. They love coffee. I mean… LOVE coffee. So their courtship involved a lot of coffee and coffee shops. So Dustin, the romantic that he is, got her mugs from some of the spots where significant moments in their relationship happened. And then he even framed the coffee sleeves from each one and included their own personalized one from their wedding! I love the creativity!

Chan Family- Los Angeles Arboretum Family Portraits

2016-04-13_0031.jpg
Most of the families I photograph have little kids. I guess because they change so much so fast, parents feel the need to capture that time in their lives. They see those kids growing up quicker than they could have imagined and know they will be off to college and out of the house before they know it.

But even though her girls ARE out of the house and off to college, Cecilia still wanted photos of her precious family. I was so honored to be able to photograph her and her husband, as well as her beautiful daughters recently at the LA Arboretum. Everything was in bloom, which made for a gorgeous backdrop.
