San Diego: Coronado beach wedding

Meet Rob and Christin. They got married during an intimate beach wedding on Father’s Day on the beach behind the Hotel Del Coronado. Rob’s parents flew in from the east coast to help the couple celebrate their day. Despite temps in the 90s, everyone was in great spirits as Rob and Christin professed their love to each other.

Congratulations to you both, and here’s to a long life together!

First Birthday Portraits at Mission Trails

Meet Emma! She had her first birthday in March. Her portrait session was scheduled in April, but with chilly temps and rain in the forecast, Emma’s mom Stephanie and I decided to postpone the shoot. Fast forward about a month… Emma has learned to walk! This little doll wanted to explore every nook at Mission Trails and her parents and I just followed along.

Happy Birthday Emma! Here’s to many more wonderful years!

San Diego Senior Portraits: Balboa Park

Meet Camerynn. She loves art and will be going to college in San Fransisco in the Fall. We met at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park with Camerynn’s mom on Mother’s Day. This San Diego senior has such a sweet personality and I know she’ll do great next school year.

San Diego Senior Portraits: Sunset Cliffs

Meet Brianna, a college senior at Point Loma Nazarene. I met her and her mother (who drove down from Temecula that afternoon) in April for portraits to celebrate Brianna’s senior year. She took a break from studying for finals and we had some fun at Sunset Cliffs.

Best of luck Brianna as you prepare for your next steps in life!

Colt turns 1!

I can’t believe it’s already been a year! If you’ve been following along on my adventures for the last year or so, you may remember meeting Colt’s mom and dad during their maternity session. A few months later, we met Colt during a family session. The Esgate family celebrated his first birthday with a “Where the Wild Things Are” -themed birthday party including a personal cake for the birthday boy and a pinata for all the kids.

I know this year will bring this lovely family many more memories, smiles and tons of love.

Photo Adventures in La Jolla

This year, I have been blessed to be able to photograph several repeat clients. This means so much to me, not only because by booking a session with me again, they are saying they enjoyed their previous experience, but it also allows me a chance to catch up with them and see what’s new in their lives.

I met Ms. Rhonda last year while she was vacationing in La Jolla. We spent nearly three hours together exploring the Cove and some of downtown. She said she would be back this year, and I was thrilled when she let me know her dates. This year, we had rain and we kept pushing back our session. We finally decided to just do it, and Ms. Rhonda came  and I both came armed with umbrellas to incorporate into the session.

I had so much fun, and can’t wait until your next yearly trip to San Diego!

San Diego Portraits: Houser Family at Mission Trails

If these faces look familiar, it may be because I photographed them a year ago at Balboa Park. We met this year at Mission Trails where I was about to witness just how much Brandon and Deagan had grown since our last session. I also go to see Shannon’s beautiful new hair color. It was such a pleasure working with the Houser family again, and I hope we can continue the tradition.

San Diego Maternity Portraits at Del Mar Beach

You met the Davis family last year during a Coronado family session. This year, they were celebrating the upcoming arrival of the newest Davis. We met at Del Mar’s dog beach where we caught up until a gorgeous sunset signaled the end of the day.

Congratulations Davis family and lots of blessings as your family grows!
