La Jolla Maternity Session with Linda

This was a fun Monday afternoon maternity session during the week of 4th of July. Linda and her 3-year-old son were visiting from the east coast and were spending the week with a friend. Linda, who is due with her second son towards the end of summer, said she never did maternity photos with her first and wanted to make sure she captured this moment with her second.

I hope you both enjoyed your visit and all the best as you prepare for the newest member of your family!

Frozen-themed San Diego Children’s Portraits

I was thrilled when Kaysie told me she wanted a Frozen-themed portrait session for her two girls. I’m a big fan of musicals, and love movies that include a catchy soundtrack. We met bright and early on a July Saturday, me with my tiny princess crown, and the girls with their beautiful hand-made dresses. I put the Frozen soundtrack on and the session took off.

The 11-month-old was full of smiles, that is, until she was in front of the camera, but towards the end of the session, with some help from dad, we manged to get an adorable shot of little “Elsa.”

I hope you girls had a great Frozen-themed birthday party, and thanks for letting me have a few moments to play make believe!

Del Mar Elopement with Daniela & Erick

I love simplicity and when Daniela and Erick said they wanted a simple elopement session at Del Mar Beach with their Great Dane, Magnus, I knew it would be beautiful. Daniela wore a white lace dress and Erick was casual in slacks and a sports coat. After a short ceremony, we made our way down to the beach as the sun started to set.

Thank  you both for allowing me to capture this special moment in your lives, and here’s to a long life together filled with joy!

Wedding: La Jolla Couples Session with Gus & Inna

Gus and Inna made the trip from Denver, Colorado to San Diego to spend a few days together celebrating their love. The pair, who met online, will be getting married overseas in the fall, but couldn’t resist the opportunity to get away for a preview wedding session. Their love for each other showed with every look, touch and word that flowed from their mouths and I am so honored that I was asked to document their special moments.

Here’s to you Gus and Inna as you prepare to spend the rest of your lives together!
