San Juan Capistrano Serra Plaza: Yianni & Vanessa

I attended my first SoCal Photog Shootout last month and had the best time!  I was able to learn from great photographers, work with lovely models and photograph some amazing details. This event was by far one of the funnest things I’ve done to grow as a photographer and meet other photographers. Attending events like this one deepen my passion to do what I love and always teach me something new.

All the vendors, leaders, stylists and hair & makeup designers did a beautiful job at creating an awesome shootout. Thanks to each of you!

This post is just Part 1 of several. I’ll be posting more photographs over the next couple weeks. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the photographs!

Senior Pictues at the Getty Center: Sarah


I had a great time with Sarah shooting her senior pictures at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, CA.  One of my favorite parts of doing senior sessions is hearing about their plans for the future. Seniors are right in the middle of one of the most exciting times in their life and they are full of dreams, excitement and smiles!  Sarah will be going pretty far from home for language school soon as she follows her passion and the Lord.  Congrats on being a senior Sarah!


A Valentine’s Day Inspiration Shoot!

Last year I started a new tradition, a fun and creative Valentine’s Day inspiration shoot. It’s my one shoot a year where I get to be as creative as I want with the location and little details. I picked out all the decor and picked up the cupcakes from Nadia Cakes in Palmdale, CA. Below are several photographs from my Valentine’s Day inspiration shoot at the Ventura Beach Pier in Ventura, CA. I love the lace detail on the bride’s gown! (Thanks Luke and Sharon! You two were perfect for it!) This shoot was also featured in Sparkle & Hay wedding blog and you can see that post here.
