This adorable family has been coming to me annually since Cedar was a wee babe. I love their carefree spirits and their ability to laugh even in the craziest of toddler moments. It really allows their colorful personalities to shine and I am able to capture the fun they have together and their zest for life. Thanks Amber, Joshua, & Cedar for the laughs and allowing me the photograph your beautiful family!

Engagement sessions are the best when you can capture a slice of a couple’s everyday life. Sydney & Heather visit Dark Horse Coffee in North Park on the weekends, so we started their engagement session there, and then took a walk around the neighborhood to visit the colorful murals that Sydney & Heather love. They brought along their pit bull Mikey, which was the perfect touch to make their session even more meaningful. Mikey put up with us pretty well for the better part of an hour and charmed my pants off. Sydney & Heather’s wedding is less than a week away and I cannot wait to photograph this amazing couple again. Their relaxed and warm personalities are going to make for the best day ever.

When Tanner contacted me about photographing his senior portraits to mark his college graduation from CSU San Marcos, I was so excited! Tanner had been my photography student and I also had the pleasure of photographing his high school senior portrait session just a few years before. It was wonderful to see the grownup Tanner who is as handsome and sweet as ever. He wanted photos both at CSUSM and a second location, so we chose the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. The architecture and strong lines of both spots perfectly accentuated Tanner’s tailored and modern look. Tanner was so easy to photograph and we had a great time chatting and trying out some more unconventional ideas, resulting in what I think are some of my most creative senior portraits. Thanks Tanner! I can’t wait to catch up again.

This sweet family session is definitely on of my favorites of all time. Brooke, Toon, Quinn, and Reese had a playful afternoon in downtown San Diego where Brooke & Toon had fond memories of living once upon a time. Equal parts colorful and relaxed, the fun atmosphere of Quartyard–a curated city block filled with food, drinks, games, and even a dog park–and the murals in the surrounding neighborhood were the perfect settings for this adorable family. Cuddles, connection, and babywearing were center stage along for a family who values their bond above all else. The show was slightly stolen by Quinn, who couldn’t have a cuter smile or better dance moves. Love you T family!
