I got to shoot this gorgeous girl last summer, right as I was leaving for Scandinavia for the summer, and of course, got too distracted to post a blog! Ugh! But it’s her birthday, so what better time to post and get to say Happy Birthday, Cami!! You are truly more beautiful inside than out, and I know your parents are so proud of you!!

I love this family so much and I really have their kids years in photos since they were babies! Only thing is, Andrea seems to get younger each year! Continue Reading ->
These are two beautiful brothers I’ve had the pleasure to get to know ever since my first photoshoot with them on the beach years ago! You may recognize them and see how they’ve grown. This family is so dear and they are raising two of the sweetest and kindest brothers. Continue Reading ->
On Wednesday, I went up to Santa Barbara to shoot a residence that has been exquisitely redone from its former heavy gothic Spanish style into an updated lighter modern Mediterranean home with unbelievable interior design. The interior designer has done three homes for the owner and when he bought this one, he gave her his complete trust and a free rein. The name “Hope Ranch” gives me hope that I will one day live somewhere like this. This house is truly amazing! Continue Reading ->
Have you ever admired magazines or even Victoria’s Secret catalog? Have you ever thought you had a chance at looking like that? Well, you do! And you can! And Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to give it a shot! Give your guy a gift like none other. Or better yet, give yourself a gift, an amazing day of playing dress up, getting pampered in hair and makeup and the stunning photos you’ll have afterward. Continue Reading ->
I keep hearing about Punk. As a kid of the 80’s, I love punk. I can’t remember how many times I was “punked out” for Halloween. I guess that really isn’t a character, but for me, it was my one opportunity to go all out, change my normally preppy cute attire into ripped leggings, unmatched shoes, safety-pinned, faux-leather, and my long untouched locks into stripes of various bright hues. I still love it! You’ve probably seen the latest MAC Cosmetics campaign, Punk Couture. And last night, the Met had their annual Met Gala, themed Punk Chaos to Couture. So I have to show you a recent shoot with TJ, which I themed futuristic punk, channeling something between Bladerunner/80’s punk and the new Sci-Fi “Defiance.”

I had the pleasure last weekend of shooting an engagement session for an adorable couple, Sarahrose and Jonathan. We went out to an old western style ranch in Agoura, complete with Saloon and General Store. The sun was beating down, it was hot, but I think the shots are adorable! Congrats Sarahrose and Jonathan on your upcoming wedding!
