  • Pilon Family - Laguna Beach, CA {Family + Lifestyle}

  • We've been so blessed to have this sweet family in our lives. We met the Pilons last year and they have become an extension of our family and the closest friends we have here in California. Our kids are best friends, the men surf, and us ladies have shopping in common! They chose Victoria Beach as a setting because of [...]
  • Ryan Family - Laguna Niguel, CA {Family + Lifestyle}

  • I'm lucky enough to live on the same street as this sweet family. I met the Ryan Family this past weekend at one of my favorite spots - Serrano Creek Park. We spent the evening exploring, collecting sticks and playing in these amazing tee pees someone left behind. Here is a sneak peak of our time together!   [...]
  • Hendricks Family - Laguna Niguel, CA {Family + Lifestyle}

  • I'm still adjusting to fall in California to be more like summer. I do miss the fall foliage back east, but I think I found a great alternative to fall foliage with these gorgeous Eucalyptus tree filled park at Serrano Creek Park.   This was the perfect setting for my mini session with the Hendricks Family. We got to w[...]
  • Smith Family Mini - Dana Point, CA {Family + Lifestyle}

  • The first time I met the Smith Family was at Salt Creek Beach when they attended my son's birthday party back in October. It was so fitting to meet up with them there again to have their family mini session. We spent our session chasing the sun and took a lot of snuggly pictures on the beach. It was the prefect fall Ca[...]
  • Crea Family Mini - San Clemente {Family + Lifestyle}

  • I have never encountered such harsh sun as the day I met up with the Crea Family. We met up about an hour and a half before sunset yet the light was so blinding. We had to seek refuge from the glare and ended up doing most of our shoot under the San Clemente Pier. I had such a great time with this sweet little family! [...]
  • Fodrini Family Mini - Laguna Beach {Family + Lifestyle}

  • The first family I met when moving to California was The Fodrini Family - so it seemed fitting that they were also one of my very first clients here too. We met up at the beautiful Treasure Island Beach at the Montage Resort. We had a quick little mini session but as always, I had a hard time narrowing it down to a few[...]
  • Davis Family - West Chester, PA {Family + Lifestyle}

  • The last time I photographed the Davis Family was 3 years ago for Hadley's cake smash. I still laugh of the pictures where she looks totally stressed out because of the cake! This time we met up for her little's sister's first birthday. Elspeth apparently doesn't love cake, so we scratched that idea in order to do a fa[...]
  • {Live}

  • Somehow my littlest babe is out of a crib! Today I transformed Cruz's baby room to a big boy room! Just two and a half years ago I gave Sienna's big girl room, and I didn't think his turn would come as fast as it did! Cruz's room is a bit small so there wasn't too much I could do, but I had to update it and since we've[...]
