What a beautiful family!  Loved shooting their beach session in San Clemente, just up the road from Carlsbad.  The Pier is a great backdrop for portraits!



More from this session coming soon!  Everly’s beach session was so much fun!  I love shooting in beach areas with vegetation, so that we can get a beautiful variety of pictures.  I provided all of the props and outfits for her session – a value added service that I offer for babies from newborn to one year.  I also have an option to add fresh flower decorations to any session (I do them myself!).  Loved this eight month beach photography session in Carlsbad.



I loved having sweet little Stella at the studio for her Luxe Cake Smash.  She did a great job, and look at her adorable outfits that mom brought!  I do provide some wardrobe for sessions, but parents can bring custom items as well.  We styled her session together, and it came out beautifully!  I adore cake smash sessions… one is such a huge milestone.

Happy Birthday little miss!



I loved this cutie’s session at the beach in Carlsbad, CA.  There is nothing more adorable than a beach baby with sandy toes.  Wardrobe is provided for babies 6 to 12 months, including these adorable vintage and modern little boy’s outfits!  I love being able to handle everything for my clients, so that all you have to do is show up with your precious little one!

Loved working with beautiful mom to be, for her third pregnancy.  She looks fabulous!

I provide a gorgeous selection of wardrobe for my clients to use during maternity sessions.  This takes a lot of work out of your session – you don’t need to bring anything!  I am new to Carlsbad, but I have already started connecting with other local businesses.  Including the amazingly talented Claire of Claire Alyse Makeup, who did hair and makeup for our gorgeous mama.  I highly recommend working with Claire for your maternity session.  You want to look your best, and she does an incredible job!

Loved working with sweet little Rowan for his Where the Wild Things Are themed cake smash.  I photographed his newborn portraits, and I just love seeing those babies come back for their milestone sessions.
