Hi.

I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer who enjoys traveling places and being cozy at home on rainy days with my husbabe! Welcome to my photo diary! I would love for us to get to know each other! Let's hop on over to my Info page for the deets! 

Leo Carrillo Beach, California | Family Session

Leo Carrillo Beach, California | Family Session

I am finally sharing photos from this sunny beach session, and I am extra emotional looking at these again because these beautiful people happen to be my brother and sister-in-laws and my nephews! My husband's family lives in SoCal so we go pretty often to visit, and every time we do it feels like we're on vacation in one of my favorite spots in the U.S. we're family! How did I get so blessed to have his family as mine?!?

But also in other news, My Facebook photography page has reached over 220 followers! WOW! I can't thank you enough for your support! To celebrate, I am giving away a free engagement session to a lucky couple! Did you get that...? ENGAGEMENT SESSION GIVEAWAY!

I wanted to start with mom & dad but Jase couldn't wait to get in on the shoot. :)

These two are tennis stars, super athletic, and just so fun to be around!

I went into this session so nervous about how bright the sun was, but if you can't tell I really enjoyed shooting in this light because of how clean and crisp the images are. I guess you could say I am no longer afraid of shooting in harsh light.
