What the heck is a mini-session? And why do I keep hearing about them? These were my exact thoughts when I first started photographing families. As it turns out, a mini-session is exactly what it sounds like, a short 15 to 20-minute photo session. Now before you start thinking that 15 to 20 minutes is […]

Yet another archive find. The day Jonathan and I played Scrabble with Grandma Joyce. This was actually not too long ago. Just this past Thanksgiving 2020. We had the very rare opportunity to spend it with one of my favorite humans. My grandma is one of those special ladies you cherish forever and ever. Her […]

What is ‘lifestyle’ family photography? What is your process? Two great questions that I feel a lot of you must be asking yourselves as you start looking for a photographer. During your search, you might have noticed other terms like candid, natural, or documentary photography. All these different styles have pieces that contribute to the […]

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 […]
