Sweet Lane Gardens is a hidden gem tucked into Sonoma County and it is amazing. Lupe and Donald had an amazing day with their friends and family enjoying beautiful weather and what the venue has to offer. Not, to mention, their son is the cutest! I was so excited to capture their day!
Veronica and Kevin have served our country and it was an honor to capture their day. They have two beautiful children who were so much fun throughout the day. This couple is so sweet and we had a blast! Congratulations guys!
Antionette and Dwayne are so made for each other! So much love between these two and their children are so amazing! It was a beautiful day and the reception was a great party! Very happy for this family!
I had so much fun with Brittany and Will on their engagement shoot! We went to two different locations and had some fun with sparklers and did a sunset shoot! It was a lot and they did so great with all of it! Such a sweet couple! I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in November!!
Liz and Cameron have an amazing family! They are full of love and fun! It was so great to spend the day with all of them. Liz and Cameron are so in love and it shows! And, to top things off, they had a beautiful cake from 'Your Sweet Expectations'! And always fun is ending the day with light painting!
Sunflowers and Sunshine! Another beautiful day at the Crane Melon Barn. I love working with Janis and her team! They are amazing!
Mayra and Tyler are such a sweet couple and it was so great to capture their day. With a sunflower theme and beautiful tributes to their son, Saulito, the day was emotional, but wonderful at the same time.
Jessica and Chris are the cutest couple! They went to the same high school and worked together during that time. They both had crushes on each other, but didn't get together until a few years later. When you see them, you can see it was meant to be!
Shooting in the same location on more than one occasion is great because you know the best spots, you know how to work with the light, and it gives you a sense of comfort. The challenge is to keep the creative juices flowing and create new moments with each couple. The beauty of what I do is that I get to work with different personalities and styles of people. Getting to know the couple at our consultation and on the engagement shoot allows me to be creative, bringing out the personalities of the couple. I love that part of what I do. I find engagement shoots also help with helping the couple be more comfortable with photography on their wedding day. They are more at ease, know how I work, how I pose them, etc. and it just adds to the enjoyment of the big day!
Hillary, Ross, and I went to a familiar location for me and we had such a great time utilizing the mustard fields that were in bloom. I am so excited for their July wedding! Such a fun, down-to-earth couple - we are going to have a blast!
I love this family! I had the pleasure of photographing Rebekah and Josh's wedding and now they are about to welcome a new little family member! We had so much fun walking along the trail while shooting, discussing baby names and how awesome Ashlynn is going to be as a big sister!
Congratulations guys! I cannot wait to photograph your littlest one! (I am not mentioning the sex of the baby on purpose because I do not know if that has been advertised). ;-)
Be prepared for cuteness overload! I love my lifestyle sessions! The children get to run and play, and be kids; they are able to adjust to their surroundings and then we slowly work in some posed photos. But, most of all, we show their personalities and capture who they are at that moment. This session with brothers Angelo and Emmit was so much fun! From photo bombs to playful sibling moments, we covered it all!
What a fun afternoon with such a cute couple. It was so windy all day and right when we went to do our session, the wind died down, so it was meant to be. We picked a sweet little park setting to show of their down-to-earth personalities.
Blessie has the most amazing smile and her inner beauty shines through matching her outer beauty. Ted is sweet-hearted and knows he has found gold in Blessie and he is holding on, which is smart. ;-) They make such a great couple!
