I’ve had the honor of photographing the Calhoun family since Jennifer was pregnant with Knox. Now they are expecting their baby girl, Lennox , any day now and I get to be a part of witnessing their beautiful family grow. I always feel so incredibly honored when a family chooses me to capture their family as it grows because it feels like I am a part of the journey with them .

This family though, let me tell you- they are some of the kindest most humble people you’ll ever meet. Jennifer is a gem, always glowing as a mamma to Knox and as a wife. You can feel her love for that sweet boy of theirs and it’s so deep and beautiful, makes me never want to put my camera away. Not to mention, each time we get together for a session, it feels like Jen and I are long time friends catching up, we laugh a ton and just have fun during her session.

This Newport Beach maternity session was a dream, not only because of the sweet overcast day we lucked out with , but because this family is the sweetest to capture . Can’t wait to meet their baby girl soon!

It’s always an honor when another photographer asks you to photograph their family. Jessica was a dream to capture, her beauty radiates and the love between her family is so overwhelming , it overcomes you as your photoshooting. This Newport Beach maternity session was a dream to document; between the birds who flew over us perfect timing, the pastel skies, Jessicas timeless boho Cleobella gown and all that love & joy between sweet Nico & his unborn sister already!

Motherhood travels through many seasons of life, often going undocumented. Capturing the details that make up the story of a mother awaiting the arrival of her baby or the raw beauty that exists while life is stirring inside her; this journey is worthy of recording in a photographic form.

I had the pleasure of documenting this sweet little munchkin, whom happens to also be my niece, only 3 days new! I truly can’t put into words how lucky I feel that parents choose me to document one of the most delicate and precious milestones in their lives! 

When photographing newborns, I aim for simplicity. I  hope to leave you with photos that tell the story of their entry into this world , that reflect the strength and beauty of a mothers love and the strong bond in all of its newness . Since I document these families in the first weeks after birth, I understand parents are sometimes sleep deprived, moms are wearing their emotion on their sleeves - but it always moves me at how tangible their love is. I then have the obligation to portray in it my photos, its just so raw and amazing!

The newborn stage is a fleeting moment; those wrinkles, those rolls, that flaky skin, those teeny tiny delicate features... all gone in the blink of an eye! Capturing it all is an investment you will never regret!

 I love giving the children in our session free roam to play and run around, capturing their real selves, their little but oh so BIG personalities as they interact with mom & dad in front my camera. Play is the key in a successful family session. Lots of tickling, chasing, jumping , splashing - I live to capture that raw beauty that lies within family connection. Sometimes asking a toddler or child to sit still and smile doesn't exactly give us a true memory of them at this age, this is why I feel its important to sing with them , giggle with them, ask them questions. This is how I capture family sessions, like a casual day with mom & dad at the beach.

I am SO behind on blogging guys! Like a gazillion sessions waiting on my desktop to hit the BLOG, eeks!

 I’ve been photographing lots of new little blossoms of humanity lately and I’m loving it! It must be baby booming season you guys! This Orange County family session was really fun because of big sister who was full of spunk & energy! I just adore watching little ones become siblings and that I get to witness the love & joy of it right behind my lens! My goal for these sessions are not to force anything, to roll with the punches and capture the beauty that is already right there in front of us. I do a little posing and directing but mostly just to give big sister something to do with her hands ;) Their is nothing more beautiful than a family bonding and I really like to encourage story time, jumping on the bed and lots of cuddles + kisses to get those real & raw moments captured. 

OKAY- this sweet little boys nursery? Can we just hashtag #nurserygoals already?! I mean who doesn’t love a travel room , this theme was so darn cute! I love how mamma pieced together the wall of little travel books, the word “E-X-P-L-O-R-E”  and the little personalized car with their families last name.

Don’t even get me started on the incredibly beautiful garden swing they had just hanging out in their yard! I literally saw it thru their window as I was peeking thru their curtains (wait, that sound creepy. I mean in a non-creepy way ;) and said to them “ Can we please use that gorgeous swing surrounded by roses & greenery ?!  Hashtag #everyphotographersdream

I am such a mushy heart behind my lens , I seriously have the best.job.ever. I can’t say that enough.
