intentional, artful & cinematic

Whale Rock is the perfect location for your intimate wedding.  Let’s face it, these days it’s almost impossible to find a bad Paso Robles wedding venue.  Everywhere you look its gorgeous settings, grand views, miles of vineyards, picture-perfect barns, literally the most perfect coastlines.  We have it all on the Central Coast!  I’m not going […]

The best moments are captured when you least expect.  This session was not planned, but that’s why photographers ALWAYS travel with there camera(s). There have been too many times I’ve let myself down by forgetting my camera.  You begin to remind yourself before you leave the house…phone, keys, wallet, camera.  I’m happy this was not […]

New born lifestyle photography in water.

With 2020 being the crazy year that it is, it seems like all types of ‘normalcy’ have gone out the window. For everyone in the wedding industry, including the newly engaged, protocol is a bit different these days, but as always with life, the show must go on.  We adapt and make things work by […]

A walk through Balboa Park is one of my low key favorites for an engagement shoot. As long as it’s on a weekday, you will have several opportunities for intimate photos, in popular locations, all to your self.  Some of my favorite locations for a Balboa Park engagement would have to be the secret cactus […]

My first experience shooting at Marian Bear Park and I loved it!  The park is the perfect location for your next Father-Daughter Session this fall. It’s a bright playful trail you will absolutely enjoy. This location is so versatile and changes dramatically with the seasons.  I’m always a  little nervous when clients request a location […]

Today’s locations, Balboa Park and Ocean Beach.  Two locations helping create one great moment after the other at this maternity session. First, we find ourselves at Balboa Park. The most diverse location in San Diego; gardens, pools, fountains, museums, Shakespeare, a church, the world-famous zoo, an amphitheater, cherry blossoms, and it goes on.  I find […]

I finally did it! I got my man to go on a hike with me!!  If it’s an activity that doesn’t involve two wheels, I usually get the eye roll. Lol.  Torrey Pines State Beach is one of my favorite places to hike in San Diego. First, it’s coastal, it has several different trails to […]

Lately, I’ve really been feeling the idea of doing more intimate in-home newborn lifestyle photography. They are so rewarding, and spending that time with a new family is so special. This time around, everything meant so much more and was even more incredible to experience.  This time around it was my brother’s turn at being […]

Couples photography sessions for older couples are often overlooked by photographers, and couples themselves.  Portraits with someone you love should be captured and celebrated at all points in your life.  I have been begging my mom for a while now to let me take some photos of her and my dad.  It’s like pulling teeth […]

I love a wedding that ends with tequila and a dance party.  Desert weddings become more popular every year.  It’s a trend that I don’t see going away ever.  It’s easy to see why couples are drawn to desert venues, it’s a warm beautiful place filled with wide-open skies.  In the California desert, you have […]
