San Diego Wedding: Jodi & James

Meet Jodi and James. This gorgeous couple got married on a beautiful September Saturday in San Diego at Liberty Station. I met Jodi a few years ago when we worked together. She was intelligent, beautiful and kind and I was honored to call her a friend. When she asked if I would photograph her wedding, I was touched.

Jodi and James’ intimate ceremony was officiated by Jodi’s father while a dozen or so family members gathered to witness the union.

Congratulations J&J! Praying a lifetime of blessings and love on you both. 

San Diego family portraits: Lake Chollas

Meet the Campbell family. Kimberly was one of the winners of a silent auction at College Avenue Baptist Preschool where her daughters and my son attend. Among the prizes she and her mother won, was a session with me. We met on an overcast Saturday morning in August where I met her darling daughters, Claire and Hanna, and her husband Rob. This beautiful family was so easy and fun to work with and their connection with each other was effortless.y photographed

Thank you Campbell family for spending a Saturday morning with me!

San Diego Portraits: The Contreras Family

Meet the Contreras Family. Andrea, Carlos and little Emma Rose and I got together on a Saturday in July for some family and first birthday portraits. Emma Rose was a champ as we dealt with the warm weather and bugs at Mission Trails and mom and dad were adorable with their coordinated outfits. At the end of the session, I found out that one of the reasons Andrea chose me was because my About Me section mentioned that I am a Christian. It felt great to connect over our beliefs in a casual way.

Here’s to a very happy birthday Emma Rose, and I know I’ll have the opportunity to work with the Contreras family again!

San Clemente Portraits | The George Family

Meet the George family. I first had the pleasure of photographing Alex, Shannon and their beautiful daughter, Harper in April for Harper’s 1st birthday portraits. Then in July, I drove to San Clemente to photograph the Georges during their annual family vacation. This lovely family (Alex, Shannon, Harper, Alex’s brother Ben, his wife, Sara, and their son, Cal) were so much fun to work with, and Alex and Ben’s parents even jumped in for a few portraits!

Thank you George family for letting me play a role in your annual vacation, and I can’t wait to work with you all again soon!
