San Diego family portraits with the Adyantha Family

One of the things I love most about living in San Diego is being surrounded by beaches, so you can image how thrilled I was to get a call from the Adyantha family a few days before Christmas asking if I had any availability after the holiday. The San Francisco couple had planned a trip to Southern California to celebrate their baby girl’s first birthday. They booked a rental right on the beach and spent a few days surrounded by family from all over the United States. Thank you Adyantha Family for including me in your vacation. I hope you enjoyed your time here!



San Diego family portraits with the Newhart Family

Last Saturday, I did a family session that included a six-day old newborn. I’m always amazed at how beautiful, peaceful and perfect these little guys always are.

The family consisted of four kids all under the age of five (the oldest turned six the day after our session), which means this little guy will have plenty of built-in friends and protectors from what can be a harsh world.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your new little guy’s life Newhart Family!



A look back at a year of San Diego portraits, headshots and maternity photos

As the year comes to a close, I’d like to start my first blog post by simply reflecting on a few of my favorite portraits of the year. I am grateful to everyone who has given me the opportunity to play a small role in their lives, and I am looking forward to meeting more people and capturing more moments as 2014 comes to a close and 2015 begins.
