Foster Family Session Solana Beach Tide Park Beach 2017-3.jpg

One more family session in the books before the end of the year! We laughed, we jumped, we played all on a warm December day in Solana Beach with the Gorgeous Foster family. Have you eve been to Tide Park Beach in Solana Beach? It is beautiful and quiet and the perfect spot to take family pictures in December. Doing family sessions like this one, makes me so thankful for this is my job, and even more thankful that I live in such a beautiful and wonderful place.

This sweet family reached out last minute to do a session, and honestly it was so much fun! I love the aspect of my job where I get to meet new people, and the benefit of that perk is making new friends. So Happy Holidays Fosters! I hope you love this sneak peak and I can't wait to get you the rest of these darling pictures. 




Heather Smith and Chad Patteson San Elijo Lagoon/Solana Beach Engagement Session


I am more than thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous engagement session from yesterday evening. Heather and Chad are an amazing couple who I was introduced to through my very good friend Megan. Yesterday was touch and go, with the costal clouds rolling in and out, and we were worried we wouldn't get any golden light. But luck was on our side and we got nothing but gorgeous sunlight and literally chased the sun away as we left San Elijo Lagoon and headed to the beach.

These two are light hearted and warm with each other, and made this session just a dream. From tender kisses and sharing a champagne flute of beer on the beach, these two were up for anything. And you can see their passion and love for each other in all of these images. Heather & Chad, thank you for choosing me to be your photographer. You're engagement session went so well and I can't wait for your wedding this next year. I Hope you love these sneak peaks (I shared so many!!!) and I can't wait to get you the rest of these stunners.

Rancho Santa Fe Vukic Family Session

It is my favorite time of year! Fall family session time.  Especially when you get to work with such amazing families like the Vukic Family!

I have know Kelsey Vukic since college (she used to be Kelsey Reagan), and while I don't want to date myself, it's been over 10 years since we first met and became sorority sisters. And there is something so amazing and humbling about being able to see someone grow and expand their family over time. Her sweet family is just at the beginning of their journey and I was so thrilled to get to document this stage in their darling Olivia's life. 

The amazing thing about family sessions, whether it's with someone I have know forever,  or someone I am just getting to know, I get to be a part of your family for a few hours in a really intimate way. I get to see how your family all fits together and interacts and loves each other, and document that. And I really consider that to be such an amazing gift that I cherish.  It's a way for me to connect with people in a really deep way that is super hard to describe and a privilege to take part in. 

Anyways, I hope you love these sweet pictures and if you are interested in a Family session I do recommend reaching out sooner than later. I have a few fall dates left but they are filling up quickly.
