I have known this little one since she was just a few weeks old. I feel SO blessed looking at these photos, because this family has come back to me every year for their family portraits. I love my clients so much, and I’m so thankful that they have faith in me to capture artwork for them that will be in their families forever. LOVE this darling girl and her parents! <3

So happy that mom picked up this gorgeous dress from Dollcake Oh-So-Girly in Australia for her session. The bunny has been with her since she was a baby, and its looking a little tattered 6 years later. I love that she wanted to incorporate it into the session!!! These are some of my favorite images ever of this age. Just so sweet. :)

Thank you G Family! You guys are really special to me.


I love seeing this family year after year as their little guy grows!  Its amazing working with families from the very start.  I love my job!


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 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 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.

I have to say that the 6-7 month range is one of my favorites for photographing babies (other than newborns of course!).  They are usually sitting by this timeframe, and they are so cute and smiley.  And they cannot escape the camera quite yet.  More images from Oliver’s session coming soon.

Did you also know that I have wardrobe in the studio available for my clients to use for babies up to one year old? I have items for the 6-9 month and the 12 month range for both boys and girls. Most items that I select match with sets/backdrops that I have in the studio. I’ve been slowly working on my collection. Items are either handmade, or brands such as Gap, Ralph Lauren, Janie & Jack, etc. Oliver is wearing a 6-9 month Ralph Lauren outfit (I have the cute hat too)!

Our beautiful portrait studio is located in Carlsbad, CA.

Its that time of year… when parents start doing the shopping for pencils and folders and cute clothes.  Summer vacations are winding down.  My kids go back in just two short weeks!  I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by.  Mine are going into 4th and 5th Grade, and I cannot believe how fast its all gone.

I have not offered a “Back to School” mini theme before, but I was very inspired this year and decided to go for it.  I have styled the set myself, which includes an adorable vintage school desk, a globe, map pinwheels and other cute school related items.  I just need your adorable kids to join me!  I’ll be shooting during the evening golden hour on two dates (see below).  I will be offering some great packages if you decide to order beyond what is included with the mini session.

Darling little Olivia came back to me for a Milestone session for her first birthday!  Its so fun to see my newborns grow from itty bitty to one year old with a sweet personality!  Such a joy!

I loved seeing little Stella again, for her one year portrait session and cake smash.  I love seeing them go from newborn to lively and adorable one year olds!  We did her set in gold, pink and teal – so girly!
