“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.” -William Shakespeare
Aren’t moms just the best?? I think so. I loved that Brooke (Brooke Bakken Photography) did a session with she and her kids with their grandma. There’s no one who loves us better or knows us more than our mama’s, am I right? These two had me cracking up the whole time. I adore
I have loved photographing this family year after year. They have become more than clients, they are dear friends and nothing brings me more joy than to capture these people’s faces! How cute can they seriously be? And what a treasure to have their grandparents to join in on the fun. Such

If you don’t already follow Corrine, you should definitely start NOW! She has all the latest and greatest fashions at discounted prices! She basically does all the dirty work for you and you get to reap the rewards! I’d say that’s a pretty good gig! We had such a great time
I cannot believe that my baby girl is 6 years old! This little peanut is SO FULL of LIFE! We are constantly amazed by her precious spirit and all she has to offer this world. We had so much fun going to the “castle beach” together and playing dress up. If it weren’t for Eliza, our

Mark and Ramune had a beautiful, intimate wedding in the heart of downtown Fullerton! Ramune is from Lithuania and I love that she wanted to incorporate her countries colors by adding the balloons to their photos. Ramune in Lithuanian means “daisy” and that is exactly what she is. A
This wedding was such a dream! I have known Caitlin since she was just a little tiny girl and to see her all grown up and in her wedding gown made my heart swell to no extent! So enjoyed capturing she and Jordan on their wedding day at the St. Regis in Monarch Beach! Flowers by the incredible Posey
Well my little chicklets have finally left their nest. My daughter Eliza started kindergarten this year and my son Cash started Preschool. I must say it feels a little lonely with just my baby 18 month old (Duke) to be home with me, but I’m cherishing every second with him. It’s crazy
We had the awesome opportunity a few months back to visit the Dominican Republic with my husband’s company and mix a little business with pleasure. One of the highlights of the trip was indefinitely spending time with some local kids while doing a service project. We were able to build and

I am so excited to shoot this couple’s wedding day in just a few short weeks! Jeff and Jordan have been together since high school and have since adopted their furry baby and are now ready to start their lives together. Absolutely loved this session in downtown San Juan with these two.
I absolutely loved this wedding!! It was a wonderful experience for me for so many reasons, one of them being that Kelsey is a dear family friend of mine and she was married at my in-laws backyard in Nellie Gail Ranch. There seriously has never been a more easy going and kind hearted bride. Kelsey
This wedding was an out and out PARTY if I’ve ever seen one. Aside from the fact that Jamie and John were the easiest and most pleasant bride and groom, they were also one of the funnest. They surprised their guests (who the majority happened to be USC graduates) with a USC Trojan marching
Loved going to Trabuco Canyon for this shoot. Kirby and Chris have deemed it one of their favorite places to be together so it was the perfect environment for them! So excited for their wedding out in San Juan Capistrano in August!
Welcome to the world little darling. What would a household full of three darling girls be like? I will never know, but fortunately for me, Erica is one of my best friends and welcoming baby Fallon to the world was like bringing in a member of the family to me. I love these people. Everyone adores
“You know I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do And it’s breakin’ my heart in two Because I never wanna see you a sad, girl, don’t be a bad girl But if you wanna leave, take good care Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there But just remember there’s a
I couldn’t be more thrilled at the prospect of these two getting hitched! Derek actually works with my husband and it wasn’t so long ago that he brought Sam to our house for the first time and my husband and I said “You two need to SEAL THE DEAL!” They have just been a
Jenessa and Brandon chose to have a quiet, intimate wedding with close family and friends in downtown LA. The food was delicious, the company was great, and the couple was absolutely radiant! What more could you ask for?
I absolutely loved shooting this session along side the talented Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance. Evan and Klaudia were the most enchanting couple and were so terribly easy to photograph. We had such a blast! I was so grateful for the opportunity to learn from Stephanie in our all day
Meet Katy and Adam. They have been dating since high school and now they’re finally tying the knot! When Katy approached me with all of her darling ideas I was elated! She had such a darling vision of what she wanted for this Christmas inspired shoot and we had so much fun playing with ideas.
Jamison and Steve’s wedding took place in beautiful Pebble Beach. One of the first times they ever met was while visiting here so they decided to do a destination wedding! Steve is from London so to have his family and friends fly out for the event was really special. It was an incredibly
Krystelle and I met at Table Rock beach just before her wedding day. Nothing could make my heart swell quite like a girl who can walk barefoot in the sand in her wedding dress BEFORE her wedding day. She truly is a one of a kind lady.
I am in love with this vintage, beach themed wedding. Max and Julie over at Partyologie had all the details perfectly aligned for this day and the outcome was incredible. Not to mention the fact that Krystelle and Stephen themselves are just incredible. So laid back and easy to please. I
Absolutely adored Jen and Chandler’s wedding at Broadway in artsy downtown Laguna Beach. A big thanks to Tricia Dahlgren Events, Illume Gowns, and Style Me Pretty for featuring this wedding on their website.

Nina has been one of my dearest friends since college. Nothing could bring me more joy than to help her announce a new baby on the way! So grateful we could catch the sunset together!
In loving memory of Ali’s beautiful mother, who passed away shortly after their wedding day. “Death leaves heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
Jen and Chandler met up with me the day after their wedding to photograph these bridals on Mission Viejo Lake. Aside from the fact that I literally have NO idea how to steer a boat and was driving around in circles while trying to photograph these to, I think these pictures turned out beautiful.
It’s perfectly plain to see how fun and adoring this couple is from their photos. And if it’s that easy to tell how lovable they are in pictures, you can only imagine what it’s like in real life!! I don’t think there is a soul on earth who could hate these people. Ryan and
This is my beautiful cousin Jeanette and her husband to be..Jeanette and I were betrothed besties from the womb so you can imagine my excitement to hear of her engagement and even MORE to take her engagement and wedding photos!! June 1 can’t come soon enough! Absolutely love and adore these
