Births have quickly become my favorite documentable life moment, ever.

It really is the epitome of lifestyle photography. Below, you will find some of my favorite images I have ever taken. Truly, an unforgettable experience!

When Jade's mom called to ask me my thoughts on Teepee's, I almost died right there!

 Toro Park at Sunset is always amazing!

Arroyo Seco Engagement. Gabe & Savannah

August 07, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I met Gabe & Savannah at Mesa Del Sol Vineyards, a picturesque private estate in the heart of the Arroyo Seco Highlands.

I was seriously in heaven... The property has so many amazing features, including a pond, a garden and a door to nowhere, one of my favorites.

Sunset is always the most stunning time of the day for photos. Unfortunately, earlier on this particular sunny afternoon, I had haphazardly made an appointment with my Optometrist, totally spacing out on the fact that he would dilate my eyes and I would be totally blinded all evening. Oopsie. These two probably thought I was totally crazy, trying to play a vampire at sunset!

 I'm so thrilled & excited for the both of you! Thanks for sweating it out with me on this dog day of Summer. It was so worth it!

Carmel Family Portraits. The Lilley Family.


 I just finished up this adorable little family's session & coincidentally they are dressed in patriotic colors, so I thought this would also make for a perfect Fourth Of July blog post!

 I met the Lilley family at Carmel River State Beach a couple weeks ago on a perfect summer afternoon.
 I also had my assistant & second shooter Jenna with me that day.

Jenna's view:

 My View of the same moment!
 This is Giovanni & he is totally adorable in every single way. Such a happy, happy babe!
 Isabella is pretty precious as well & packs some huge personality into her little frame.

 I just love this...
 And this! Swoon...

 This so reminds me of childhood.
 Toddlers are hard to photograph. Always. I often give families little tasks & activities to do during their session. This tricks toddlers into thinking something fun is happening & I always get an authentic reaction.

 We stopped by the Carmel Mission for a change of scenery. Check out this to-die-for side profile.
 And though she be but little, she is fierce.

 Gio. Just chillin'.

 My photo on the left. Jenna's photo on the right.
I love seeing one cohesive moment from two different perspectives.

 This is technically a blooper, but I loved the lifestyle feel to it. Just a mom with her kids.
This was total chaos. Bella was eating sand while Gio was face planting directly into the pile he had just made! Fun times.

Ashlee actually contacted me several months ago via email. She said she had found me thru a Google Search & had started following me on Facebook & Instagram. She told me that her & her family were moving to the area in a couple of months & she loved my photos & wanted to set up a session. This was like, the best compliment a client has paid me in a long time. I was seriously floating for at least two days. So Ashlee, thank you! I am humbled and honored that you chose me. I recognize and appreciate the love!
Randall & Ashlee,
I had such a fun time meeting you and your totally adorable mini me's. They are both little slices of heaven! Thank you for contacting me. It was such a great day!
