The Wisner's Family Session at Hotel Emma, San Antonio

Wisner Family Session San Antonio Hotel Emma 2017-3.jpg

So I am a bit behind schedule but I can't wait to catch you all up on all the crazy over the last few months of traveling (if you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you've seen some of the fun). But instead of getting you all caught up I figured I'd jump ahead and do a little blog post on some of my favorite people in the world, The Wisner's! When Catherine (who is an amazing photographer in her own right) GAVE me an amazing lens earlier this year I just knew I had to pay her back in some way, and so when we had a great family friend (who is honestly like family) was having a wedding in San Antonio, I knew my chance had arrived. 

I have know this amazing family for about 15 years, since Stephanie and I became friends in High School, and watching their families amazing journey has been a true pleasure. And the apple of everyone's eye is little Scarlet. It was a cloudy drippy morning, but Scarlett brought the sunshine in her smile. She kept us all entertained and she is truly, madly deeply in love with her uncle Joe. Their sweet friend ship kept us all giggling and smiling. She refused to sit with her parents in the group shot, cause uncle Joe is where it's at!

 I hope you all love this sweet sneak peak and I can't wait to get you the rest ASAP. It is such an honor to be your friends and your photographer.

Big Hugs!!!


Wisner/Dean Balboa Park Family Session

I met Stephanie when we were in expat kids, going to High School in Switzerland about 15-16 years ago (god I am getting old). Unfortunately after highschool we lived and worked hundreds of miles away from each other. And occasionally when a friend gets married or we have a meet up with highschool friends, I get to see her.  SO I was thrilled when Stephanie emailed me and let me know she was going to be in town, with Mark and their sweet little girl Scarlett and she wanted to do pictures with me! 

I am so lucky to have so many friends around the world and I feel super honored that I not only got to meet up with Steph and Mark but that I also got the privilege of capturing their darling little family. I loved being able to show them part of San Diego that I love, and to just be together and catch up and have fun! Stephanie is still as sweet and kind as ever and I wish we lived closer so we could spend way more time together.

So Stephanie and Mark, I hope you love these teasers and I can't wait to send you more! Have a great time while you're here in So Cal and hopefully, sooner than later, we get to hang out and spend time together again!

Much Love,


The Medford Families 2016 Holiday and Maternity Session

So I'm trying something new. And it's mostly because I am just sooo in love with these pictures I couldn't share my normal teaser of just a few. So this time I'm going to do a whole blog post with my "teaser" images. And if you (and I) like this, I'm going to try and keep it up!

The Medfords are an amazing little family unit that I am lucky to call friends. This was my 3rd annual shoot with them, and I think it was probably the best! The recent years have been so fun too but this year was different. Because this year, Marlena was pregnant!  And when I found out we were doing the shoot at Felicita Park I was so excited.

This is now officially one of my favorite locations in North Count San Diego.  Plus there was the Renaissance Fair going on at the same time and who doesn't love seeing knights and wood nymphs out in their natural habitat. :)

Marlena, JD and LuLu, thank you from the bottom-of-my heart for trusting me for a third year-in-a-row, and for allowing me to document this glorious and fun afternoon that I had with you!  I can't wait for your sweet little guy to arrive  (and hopefully get some sweet pictures with him too).

Much Love,
