Hernandez Family {Maternity} | Venice Beach, CA Photographer

I had SO much fun photographing this adorable family.  There’s something amazing that happens when you photograph people who truly love each other with all that they are… it completely shows through in their photos, and that’s exactly what happened in our session with Isaac, Jacqui and Elijah (and baby girl in the belly)! 

We had the greatest time walking around the Venice Beach Canals.  We would stop and take pictures, every now and then and if it was just Jacqui and Isaac, I would get them posed, tell them to look at me, then at the belly, then at each other and then kiss, and every now and then Jacqui would say “Do we get to kiss again?” or “Can we kiss again?”  SQUEEEE!!!  I love love love couples so in love with each other!

Thank you Isaac and Jacqui for allowing me to capture such an amazing time in your lives … and thank you little Elijah for letting me run up and down the alley ways playing pirates with you! ARRR MATEY!

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!


BeBop Clothing Shoot, Los Angeles, CA Photographer

I had the pleasure of taking pictures for BeBop Clothing’s holiday card this year!  Lina, the designer of BeBop & Fishbowl clothing, walked us through the design room and the showroom and it was so amazing to get a behind the scenes look at everything!  Amazing clothes EVERYWHERE!  The Showroom was like every girls dream closet uh-MAZING.   Have I used the word amazing yet?? 🙂
You can find their clothes in Macys, Nordstrom, Sears, JC Penny, Windsor… etc… you get the idea 😉 
Check out their website! http://bebopclothing.com/

the next photo is the one they ended up using for their Holiday card!

Paul & Jessica: Disneyland Engagement Pictures, Orange County, CA Photographer

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who fell madly in love with a prince…

I cannot tell you how much fun I had with this amazing couple at Disneyland.  Besides it being a couple days before Christmas making Disneyland super crowded, it was such a perfect picture day! 

We hung out and walked around the parks for a couple hours just talking, taking pictures and laughing ALOT! 

There’s something about shooting an engagement session… it’s special.  Being able to witness firsthand, and so closely, the love between two people is a pretty amazing feeling.  Especially the love between a couple like Paul and Jessica. 

They’re more than just engaged, they are both in love with their best friend, and you can tell that just by hanging around them for a little bit.  The happiness that they share is so contagious, I felt more in love with my own husband after leaving them that night. 

Thanks Paul and Jessica for such an AMAZING day!  Can’t wait to capture your wedding!!
