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.

San Diego Maternity Portraits with Eden & Keith

Meet Eden, Keith and their fur baby Ziggy. We met at Balboa Park where I learn that the couple meet in Hawaii while she was working as a flight attendant and he was working with the military. Eden, a San Diego newbie, and Keith have been married for about a year and are expecting their first child in July.

We captured some beautiful moments during their maternity session and I can’t wait to work with them again after the birth of their precious baby girl.





San Diego Maternity Portraits with Seneca

I met with this adorable mama and her equally adorable daughter on a gray Monday morning at Balboa Park. Seneca, who works as a hairdresser, is 7-months pregnant with her second little girl. For her mini maternity session, she wanted bright, bold colors to compliment her vibrant sea foam green and hot pink dress, so I suggested the Spanish Village at Balboa Park.

Little Ms. B did such an awesome job and Seneca just glowed the entire session. Best of luck to this family as they prepare to welcome a new addition!



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!




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!





San Diego Maternity Portraits with Jacque & Norman

It’s always a pleasure when you have repeat clients and even more so when they are celebrating a milestone life moment. I had the opportunity to photograph Jacque and Norman a few months after shooting their group family photo at a church. We walked along the cove before ending the session with the seals at sunset.

I wish you both the best as you begin this new chapter in life and hope that your little one brings you all the joy you deserve!




San Diego Maternity Session with the Zhang Family

I met the Zhang Family on a Friday afternoon in April. Ivy was just two weeks away from her scheduled due date, so we knew we had to get her session on the books as soon as possible. After discussing a few locations, we decided on La Jolla Shores. We took a few shots in Scripps Park, and then we headed down to the beach where Ivy’s husband and son Roy frolicked in the sand while we stole away for a few solo shots of Ivy.

Thank you Zhang Family for allowing me to be a part of this special moment, and I wish you all the best as you enter welcome your newest family member!




San Diego maternity session with Lorraine and Ryan

I met Lorraine and Ryan and their 11-year-old dog two weeks ago for a maternity session near downtown San Diego. This beautiful couple is expecting their first child, a boy, this March. The pair met about six years ago when Lorraine moved into Ryan’s building and have been on adventures ever since.

Congratulations Lorraine and Ryan! I know you’ll have many more adventures once your little guy arrives!
