Portland is my daughter and once in a while I chase her around with my photography camera. She enjoys it and knows how to work the camera. She loves it when I print out the photos and hang them around the house. She smiles with joy and excitement.
Its always an honor to be asked to photograph a family, and its amazing when asked to capture each time the family grows. I get to be part of their life in a special way, I get to see them before kids and after kids. I first did a photoshoot with Garold and Roseanna probably ten years ago, and now with their new second son. We had fun snapping photos in Redlands.
Briana and Mario have been life time friends, so it was great to arrange doing family photos with them. We wanted to take advantage of the great winter sun and take some family photos.
James and Brittney have been good friends of mine for over ten years and I’ve been part of their lives through all the phases of love, heart break, excitement and now bringing a life into the world. I was excited to be their photographer to capture this special moment; as Brittney transforms into a mother and James into a father.
Through the brief years of working with Steven I saw his relationship unfold with he girlfriend Deborah. They were both very quit but I knew one day they would get married. I was honored when he asked me to capture the special day.
I came across a magazine called Bella Grace and was inspired to submit some of my photography. I wanted to create something new that would encourage others to spend time alone, and take in the world. I asked a friend of mine, Hannah to be my model, and have some fun being creative.
I knew the moment Jeanva mom asked me to take senior photos that we would have so much fun taking photos. We drove up to the mountains and spent a few hours together just snapping photos.
My friend Bri contacted me asking if I would be able to shoot her sister’s wedding. She told me it would be small with just a few close people. I had no idea how adorable and inspired I would be as a person who has been to many weddings. I loved every moment of Sam and Dylan’s wedding. It was low key and relaxed. When it was time for my own wedding, I remembered Sam and Dylan and knew I wanted a easy going wedding just like theirs.
My sister told me about a field she saw on her way home and knew it would be the perfect place to do family photos. After a small hike, we found a beautiful spot to gather the family and snap some photos that we would cherish.
I can honestly say that Briana is like a sister to me, we grew up together and shared lots of laughs and life events together. I pitched her the idea of getting dressed up and going downtown to announce her engagement. It was fun to capture this exciting time of her and Mario’s life.
Miranda is like family to me, I watched her grow up and become a young lady. I was excited when her mom asked me to take photos for Miranda for her graduation at the beach. I knew we would have so much fun capturing the excitement of finishing high school.
