Well the Vioght's win the award of being my real last session of the year! And what an amazing session it was. Diane contacted me about doing a mix of a 50th Anniversary session and a family session together and I couldn't be more delighted with how it all turned out. Everyone came from far and wide to celebrate this sweet couple, and you can see the genuine joy on everyones faces.

Thank you all for sharing such a beautiful afternoon with me, and your sweet families stories. The kids were especially patient and fun, and a big thanks for being willing to laugh at yourselves.The strength and love you all have for each other is really a treasure that I know you all cherish. I hope you enjoy these new family heirlooms and I can't wait for you all to see the rest. 

Hugs,

The Medfords's Fall Family Session in San Marcos CA

Medford Family Session San Marcos 2017-1.jpg

This past weekend I got to work with some amazing families, including the ever luminous Medford Family. And this year we got to even more of their family in their session (yay grandparents!!). Lucia has grown sooo much in this past year, and she is quite the caring and gentle big sister to the cuddly Felix. It's crazy to think that same time last year, Marlena was pregnant and now Felix is here and blessing their lives with his sweet smiles everyday! It blows my mind that the sweet little outfit hanging in Felix's nursery (and from his newborn session) that looked enormous, now fits him! 

I know I say it all the time but I really am so lucky to walk with these amazing people through their lives. This is the 4th year of family sessions with them, and it's been amazing watching their growth (and mine!).  Marlena and JD, thank you from the bottom-of-my heart for trusting me for another year, and for allowing me to document this glorious and fun afternoon that I had with you and your little ones!  ]

Much Love,

South Ponto Beach Family/Birthday Session 2017

I had the most fun at yesterday, combining work with fun. My old college roomie Laura and I reconnected a few months ago and when she asked me to do a photo-session for her mom, Karen's birthday I was so honored and excited! Laura and I met in college and back then, I was so lucky to meet and connect with her sweet mom and brothers and sisters back then. (like 12+ years ago)

So for me, not only was it a super great family session but it was an amazing opportunity to reconnect with the whole family. All the kids were so amazing and I know it took everyone a minute to wake up, but once they did, wow! Such an amazing session, and I hope we don't have to wait another 10 years to catch up.  Enjoy this sneak peak guys, and I can't wait to show you the rest. :)

xoxo,
