Amanda and Andrew: Married

After many months of waiting and reschedules and COVID lockdowns and reopenings, Amanda and Andrew got married! It was an absolutely stunning day at Mt. Woodson Castle, located in the East San Diego city of Ramona.  This was my first time shooting at the castle and it did NOT disappoint.  […]


Jenny and Dillon: Senior Portraits

Are these two not the CUTEST?! Jenny contacted me saying she was graduating from University of Redlands (yessss Go Bulldogs!) and her boyfriend, Dillon, from Loma Linda University.  I absolutely love senior sessions with more than one person: friends taking pictures together, boyfriend and girlfriend, mom and daughter, sisters, etc. […]


Family Session: Valtier Family

Let me introduce you to one of my favorite families! I’ve been photographing the Valtier family for a couple of years and every time is a delight!  The kids are SO fun and funny and we had the added bonus this year of everyone knowing the lyrics (and I mean […]

San Diego Senior Photographer: Mia | Senior Session

There is just something special about high school seniors these days.  They have grown up with access to a phone camera and spend a lot of time taking pictures with friends. So they know posing and angles and how to show off their personalities!  It was an absolute blast to […]

Laguna Beach Engagement Session: Jules and Jon

I have a confession to make: beach sessions make me a teensy bit nervous. Getting to the beach, traffic, parking when we get there, making sure we meet at the right spot… it can all be stressful! Then hoping you picked a spot without crowds and breathing a sigh of […]

Redlands Family Session: Horan Family

I finally got the Horan family in front of my camera! I met Kevin at The Energy Lab (our gym in Redlands), and it wasn’t until we were in weight training class together when we got to talking. They had family pictures scheduled for last year but had to reschedule […]

Married! Erin and Mike: Oak Glen wedding

Most photographers know how to watch something with one eye and something entirely different with the other eye. Like during the speeches, you’re listening and watching the speaker but also looking around the crowd for the reactions.  You’re also trying to listen to the speech and catch the reactions from […]
