Ah, this adorable family, the morning sun and their epic fall colors!
Although it doesn't feel much like fall,
seeing this photo reminds me of the crisp coolness and snugly boots weather, that sure will come in no time!
I just felt so honored capturing this family as mom and dad met down this way while in college,
lived here for some time and then moved up to Orange County!
They were down here on a family vacation and created some space for family portraits,
just before going to Legoland, of course!
We had the best time playing around Hosp Grove Park in Carlsbad,
pretending litte nemo was in my camera and swimming around a stuffed hammerhead!
Thank you so much, for creating the space for your family portraits while down this way.
It truly was such an honor meeting all of you and sharing these moments.
I always giggle at the interactions that life brings.
Several months ago, I was contacted by a woman working for a bridal magazine in San Diego.
Usually, I don't meet with those trying to sale advertising space, but, something was different, really different.
When speaking with Sandy, it was like we were old friends.
We met for coffee one morning in Encinitas and my goodness, we've been on a roll ever since!
We both share so much love and passion for our businesses, the wedding industry and working with other creatives. We immediately started planning a styled shoot, stay tuned for this one my friends,
and I jumped on a project she already had in the works!
This here is a styled shoot planned and executed by Sandy, the proud owner of Timeless Weddings and Events.
It's a lovely dinner table for two nestled on the coast of Sunset Cliffs in San Diego.
I am so very honored to take part in and capture her hard work and dedication to bringing this vision to life!

These two, this engagement session, my goodness.
I had the honor of having an in-person first meeting with these two.
We had the best time chatting away, hit it off and I so humbly got to capture their engagement portraits
and before we know it, in June of next year, their wedding portraits.
We explored Torrey Pines Nature Park and Beach in La Jolla, California and it couldn't have been more magical.
You see, these two, have that kind of love.
That heart-thumping, soul-quenching, I love you so much I don't wanna ever let you go kinda love!
Each and every time capsule reflects that in a different light.
Thank you so much Shellsea and Daniel! My goodness, I cannot wait to capture the moments around your wedding.

I just love when mini sessions come about as they're unique and only come around a couple times a year.
They're the perfect time to explore new locations and even more excitingly,
meet uniquely amazing families,
or in this case, reconnect with those I've already been so blessed to document.
Well, this past weekend I got to explore the luscious,
dynamic nature of Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens in Fallbrook, California.
This lovely family and I shared a photographic connection over a year ago when mom was newly pregnant!
Now, there are is not one, but two precious little ladies.
The youngest is six months and the oldest is talking and laughing and sharing stories.
I just love watching families grow over the years and getting to document these life experiences!
Thank you so much, to all of you, for this very moment. For these very opportunities.

Well, this past weekend I got to explore the luscious, dynamic nature of Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens
in Fallbrook, California with several families.
This here, meet the Van Beeks.
Years ago, while traveling, this lovely family contacted me for a family session, at the time,
I think I was in Costa Rica or South Africa, maybe even Tanzania, who knows.
But, at that time this party of four, was only a party of three!
As the universe always has a way of doing so,
our world were finally joined for one of these beautiful morning mini sessions.
I just love the bonds between siblings and more so the happiness that this whole family radiated!
It was an honor getting to spend the morning with all of you and getting to know you so much better.
Thank you so much for the honor of capturing these moments!
A far too epic location for an absolutely beautifully thoughtful and well executed going away party!
I had the honor of shooting at one of my favorite locations,
The Historic Doheny House in Capistrano Beach, California for my dear mentors daughters going away party.
She's flying her wings from that of SoCal and heading across the States to take on the hustle and bustle of New York!
This house, is a newly discovered historical gem overlooking the beautiful coastline of Dana Point!
