When we moved last year, I prayed often that God would bring my oldest a very special friend. To my surprise, she had the hardest time with the move as she left her beloved school and friends behind. This family has been a blessing to us and especially their oldest and the friendship she has with our daughter. We are blessed to know them and my girls are incredibly blessed by their friendship. We love you Martinelli family. You have a precious family.


So, this is by far one of the coolest photos I have ever taken. Pure joy in these two!

It’s always an honor to photograph a fellow photographer’s family! Jen Dwyer is a talented photographer, a friend, and just an awesome person. Go to her website here and leave some love. Chris and Jen attend our church and we have enjoyed getting to know them and their two, precious daughters. My girls adore them and we do too. I’m swooning over these images, the Christmas colors and love that this family displays for one another. Enjoy!


**If you are need of Christmas photos this year, I still have a few open dates. Contact me at (562) 673-3467



I loved that they found my business card at Java Mama Coffee Shop in Folsom and contacted me for their family photo shoot. I had totally forgotten that I had left some there one afternoon when I was there with my girls. Their little man was so incredibly well-behaved and I loved that they brought their family dog for the shoot. Thank you Watson family for such a wonderful shoot. It was a pleasure and honor to capture these photos for you.

I had the privilege to 2nd shoot with Heracain Productions this past Saturday.  Sarah is so professional and was amazing as she navigated the wedding day. This young couple attends our church and had the most beautiful outdoor wedding at an estate owned by one of our church members. I loved being behind the camera again and enjoyed capturing just a few of the moments that happened throughout the day.

It was pretty instant, a few chats at church, the adoption connection, and our love for ethnic food and we were instant friends. Not to mention, Ashley is a fellow photog and we speak the same language. Check out her beautiful photos here. After moving to a new area, it felt overwhelming to start over building new relationships, but this precious family has made it so easy. We love you guys and I was so honored to take these photos.
