Newport Beach Engagement Photos {The Wedge}


This has been one of my favorite shoot this year! The colors of the water and sky were just perfect. I always love the beach on cold days!!! Leanna and Nathan toughed out the cold for the sake of the shoot, and it was well worth it (thank you)!  We just so happened to be down near the wedge on high wave day!!! It was fun to see the waves so big and get a few of them in our shoot. Enjoy!!!

Orange County Family Photographer {Documenting a sweet boy, his family and his love for his bunny}

This shoot was AMAZING!!! It brought back memories of my childhood. I was one of those kids that was an animal lover from day one, we had tons of pets growing up (dogs, turtles, a chinchilla, bunnies, frogs, and even a goat!).  I had about a billion stuffed animals at a young age that I loved dearly. Sooooo, this sweet little guy, Donovan, touched my heart when he had to have his bunny in EVERY shot! This is why we call it “lifestyle” photography!  It is not about poses and orchestrated moments (although it is great to have that one photo where everyone is looking at the camera), it is about moments, real life, the way things really are. Whether that is your kid carrying around his stuffed bunny everywhere, eating mud, jumping or constantly running… that is real life and I truly believe that those moments captured on film will be the ones you look back at and feel the most joy from!!  So without further ado please enjoy these sweet REAL family photos and the love a kid can have for a stuffed animal.

Even a little kid can look out into the world and see all the possibilities of life.

…and this these last 2 photos just cracked me up!! They are slightly out of focus cause is is marching but they are still soon good for a chuckle!!



Franciscan Gardens Wedding Chellie + Ryan {San Juan Capistrano Wedding Photographer}

I love this sweet couple!!! Chellie and Ryan were married last fall and I am trying to get caught up on posting more of last year’s weddings, as it was a super busy maxed out wedding season for me!! Chellie and Ryan were married at Franciscan Gardens and it was just beautiful. We did most of the photos in old town and then finished up with just the bride and groom at my favorite spot in San Juan, The MISSION! It is such an amazing place filled with history, architecture, texture, and soft neutral colors that look so stunning for wedding photos.  Along with the gorgeous locations, Chellie’s Mom (super woman as I like to call her) Designed and put together all of the details of the wedding including the flowers and table decor. She is talented!! You might remember Chellie’s sister’s wedding, Lauren and Mike. Her mom did everything for that wedding too! The navy and blush colors of this wedding are just so romantic and fit the venue so well.  I hope you enjoy this snippet of The Young’s Wedding Day!!!

Ryan and Chellie shared a sweet prayer before their first look.
