San Diego Maternity Portraits with D & J

I was ecstatic the day my friend told she was pregnant and just knew I wanted to get her and her husband in front of my lens. We met on a chilly Thursday in May just before sunset and the love this couple had towards each other was so evident.

It will be a few more weeks until the little miss makes her grand appearance and I can hardly wait!




La Jolla Headshots with Kyle G.

Kyle and I met for a headshot session at La Jolla Cove one a weekday in May. I was excited to learn that Kyle, a San Diego investment specialist, is also from Michigan.

We made the most of our session by switching backgrounds with each outfit change and I think we got a great collection of both professional and personal images.






San Diego Headshots with Daril

Meet Daril Bonner, Editor in Chief of the Bonner Post and Chief Executive Officer of Bonner PR. I had the pleasure of meeting this San Diego business man in May at Balboa Park for a headshot session. My sessions are typically filled with tons of smiles and even some laughter, but on this particular day, there was also a few yelps as we were chased by a relentless bumblebee in the butterfly garden.

Try as we might, we just couldn’t shake the flying critter. It took both Daril and I getting stung before we gave up our garden location and moved to a bee-free spot.

Daril looked amazing in his suit, and we got some great portraits. I wish him all the best in his many ventures and know that our paths will cross again.





San Diego Portraits with the Johnson Family

Elyse contacted me wanting some portraits for herself and her mother-in-law in honor of Mother’s Day. I met Elyse, her husband and their two-year-old son at Balboa Park and we headed to the rose garden for the first half of the session. The second half took place at the butterfly garden and included Elyse’s mother and father-in-law, their daughter and her husband!

It was so much fun working with this family, and I love that they all came out to help celebrate Mother’s Day. Our morning was so full of smiles and laughter by the end of the session. Thank you for sharing those special family moments with me Johnson family!





San Diego Maternity Portraits with Ashley & Trevor

It was such an honor to meet Ashley and her husband Trevor who have been in San Diego for almost two years. The pair met in North Carolina and are expecting their first child in two months. Ashley, a student, and Trevor, who is in the military, were so easy and fun to work with.

Congratulations to both of you, and I wish you all the best for the rest of the pregnancy!
