San Diego Fall

The Dougher's Fall Family Session In San Marcos, CA

Dougher Family Session San Marcos 2017-1.jpg

I love this time of year, because not only do I get to see family, but I get to reconnect with some of my favorite friends and their sweet families. This past weekend I got to work with this sweet family, the Dougher's. This is our 4th session, and no matter how many times I say it, it really is a blessing in my life to get to document a family as wonderful as they are over time.

I love getting to see the kids grow and change. I love getting to play with your kids and making you smile.  Thank you Sheena and especially Joe, for being so patient and kind and continuing to work with me every year. I am so lucky to have been able to be apart of your families journey and I am so excited to continue that through the years. 

I am one blessed lady!



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,


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,
