Max & Jackson {Cousins} | Orange County, CA Family Photographer

Being a photographer, I spend so much time planning and designing sessions for so many families, children and couples, that I very rarely am able to plan sessions of my own son.  I was finally able to, when we decided for my mom’s 60th birthday we wanted to do a big session of Mr J and my nephew and give her some enlarged prints!





Eneim Family | Orange County, CA Family Photographer

I had sooo much fun with the Eneim family!  The boys totally gave me my workout for the day, but man it was fun!  We had such a great time running around and “exploring the forest” 😉  I loved watching little boys play together, especially brothers… such an amazing bond <3

Miss K’s Storybook Adventure! Orange County, CA Photographer

Once upon a time there was a sweet little girl named Miss K . . .

She was a happy little girl! 

One of her favorite things to do was sit out in her local park, under her tee-pee and get lost in the classic storybooks she would bring to read.  She would get so lost in them, she could almost imagine herself there…
She read, Little Miss Muffet…
(who sat on her tuffet)

. . . eating her curds and whey.

When along came a spider that sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away!!

She also read Goldilocks and the 3 Bears!

and last but not least, Little Red Riding Hood

What a fun day!!

Arline + Family, Irvine, CA Photographer

I had the honor of capturing this awesome family a few days ago!  They were so fun and had me laughing the entire time!  We did our session at Irvine Regional Park and I have been wanting to do a shoot there ever since we took Mr J on the Christmas Train there last month.  It’s gorgeous and there are so many spots perfect for shooting!  They also have a small zoo there, which I haven’t been to yet and soooo many peacocks are just roaming free in the entire park!

When I first got there the sky was super cray and overcast and I was bummed thinking I wasn’t going to get any pretty lighting for this family, but just 5 minutes before we met up, it was like the clouds parted and angels sang down on us . . .  okay maybe not like that, but it was GLORIOUS!


Perrizo Family Session, Irvine, CA Photographer

I love my family.  We are so close.  I love when my family marries into awesome families making my family that much bigger and better!  My cousin Dave married into the Perrizo family a few years back and we are so happy he did.  This family is one of the nicest most genuine group of people.  I had so much fun photographing them!

White Family Christmas Session!

This little family was so much fun to hang out with!!  I loved how Baby K would wave at me anytime I pointed my camera at her, she was just too cute!!

Cintron Family Christmas Session

I went to highschool with this beautiful momma, and I hadn’t seen her in years, so I was so excited she booked her family’s Christmass session with me.  Her husband was so sweet and their 2 boys are to die for.  Those eyes! *swoon*  I had such a fun day with this amazing family! 

A California Christmas!

I love photographing the beautiful Otero family!  We did thier Christmas session this year down in San Clemente at the beach and it was just so perfect!  Christmas on the beach… completely describes southern CA this time of year!

More to come later!

Happy Thanksgiving

I’ve got so much to be thankful for this year.  An amazing husband.  An awesome clientele.  The ability to do what I love, photography.  Most of all I’m thankful for our little miracle baby.  Mr J.

Happy thanksgiving to you all!  I hope you get to spend it with those you are thankful for!

Bri & Abby, Mother Daughter Session, Fullerton, CA Photographer

I went to highschool with this beautiful mama, and her gorgeous daughter is one of my God-daughters.  I am so thankful to have them back in my life (we lost touch for a few years) and am so so happy I was able to capture the love between the two of them.  There is no love like the love of a mother and her baby… no matter how old that baby is…
