Shaun & Mykahlee & a Mirror House

A little over a year ago I had the honor of photographing Shaun & Mykah's big day. Since then we've ended up becoming good friends and I love these two to death! For their 1 year anniversary Mykahlee came to me and told me she wanted to surprise Shaun with a little photo shoot. So we decided to have extra fun with it and go to Doug Aitken's Desert X (AKA that really cool Mirror House in Palm Springs you may or not have seen all over Instagram). We had a blast venturing out to the desert and having this awesome work of art, as well as some gorgeous light, to play with. Enjoy!

The Forbes Family

I had the privilege of photographing Adam & Whitney's maternity photos a couple of years ago, and now I've finally gotten the chance to meet the little guy in person! We did their first family session recently amongst some young Redwoods in Brea, CA. I absolutely adore this family. (And are they stylish or what?!) 

Oh, and just a little fun fact about Whitney. She does RAVISHING work as a calligrapher. If you're ever in need of such services, find her on Instagram... @thehautepress

The Diaz Family

Fun, little story! I've known this guy since I was 10 years old. We met in 5th Grade Camp! We were good friends throughout middle school, then went our separate ways after going to different schools. After years of not seeing each other, we recently ran into each other and caught up. This prompted him to schedule a mini session. It was so fun meeting his little ladies and watching him be a daddy on his shoot!

Welcoming Baby Reagan

At 3:31 pm on June 10, 2016, David & Rachel welcomed their precious baby girl into the world. One of the sweetest moments I've ever had the privilege of witnessing, was David kneeling down and whispering to Rachel, "She's perfect." The tears were indeed flowing! I'm so happy for these two. They're going to make incredible parents. And I'm so thankful that they chose me to be there to document it.

Hugo & Erika

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Hugo and Erika in the depths of Mount Baldy for their engagement session.  They were one of the most giggly couples I have ever photographed! Between their easy going, loving nature, and the gorgeous nature around us, I was very happy with the results of this engagement shoot.  I cannot wait to join them again to document their big day!

Kerianne & Lily

Kerianne turned 5 today!  I can't believe how quickly time has flown watching these two grow up.  Last week I was able to take Kerianne and Lily to a pretty little field at golden hour and get some (now some of my favorite) photos of them.  Love these girls to pieces!

Justin & Lily

On my recent trip to Seattle I was able to meet with this precious couple, whose wedding I'll be shooting this summer!  I loved being able to travel to this amazing city for their engagement shoot.  I'm also pretty crazy about this state.  Can't wait to visit again and can't wait for their big day in a few months!

Matilda

I was able to make up a trip up to Seattle, WA last week, and I am sad to be leaving the PNW in just a matter of days.  So many gorgeous locations in just this one city alone.  While on this trip, I had the privilege of photographing the coolest girl in Seattle.  Tilly might actually appreciate Star Wars as much as I do!  Of course, we had to get some awesome photos of her in her homemade stormtrooper outfit for her portraits.  I mean, why wouldn't we?
