I did a repeat of last Sunday (this Sunday), except this time I met the sweetest little family. Here from Chicago on spring break, we had lovely weather that evening (I wish I could say that for their entire week here). I love this little bit of rural in Orange County. I just can't help but admit trees, pretty light, open space and meeting great people just make my heart happy. xx
I am so grateful to document this sweet family year after year. Watching the kids grow into the most amazing little people--the best! x
I always love to photograph a photographer. It is such a compliment. I know how much I hate to be on the other side, but how very important it is no matter how hard. Jody--your family is so special, so full of love and so so sweet.
It was a lovely time. xo
I had the pleasure of spending the day with Kati and then photographing her beautiful family. They are here from Germany, exploring California and I am honored they trusted me with their very first family photographs. xo
A few images from a session family session last week. Happy spring!
i so lucky to know this family. karly is first grade with kate and joe. her parents adopted her when she was 18 months old and saved her from such a hard life. the life they have given her is so full of love and so much goodness. they are her miracle, as she is theirs. and now, after years of trying, they have been blessed again with a baby of their own.
this house is so full of love. and now a family fully complete.
i have been so blessed to have had the opportunity to photography this family every year. it is so fun to watch the kids grow in pictures. this year we spent the afternoon in their beautiful home with their sweetest new addition...and that puppy it just as precious as he looks. xo

we just got back from maui, hawaii this month and had the sweetest pleasure of getting together with an old friend and super duper photog, kellie hatcher and her family. it was such a treat to just sit around and visit, letting the kids just play...which left us about five minutes each to photograph our families on the beach. but we made do and, well, their family is so cute and fun--it made for easy work.
so grateful to have spent some time with them. love you kellie and family!!
