Although this is not the usual work you see me share on here, it can be exciting to switch it up from families/maternity/newborn from time to time but especially when it means capturing a talent like Roxanne.

This Canadian beauty , Roxanne West, visited Cali earlier this month and reached out to get some lifestyle portraits done - especially since the incredible Justin Anderson was going to be beautifying her hair this visit! What a dream to capture her and all her beauty, both inside and out. We strolled the gorgeous Lido Marina Village taking in the aesthetic of all the shops & restaurants and even stopping at the local farmers market, they put on every Wednesday, for a few testers. Although Roxanne probably would not mention it, she is a master at interior design and so it was only fitting we chose a spot that vibed with so much inspiration around us. One of our favorite stops was the Honers Coffee shop. They have hands down one of the best Vanilla Iced Lattes in town and their design is mind blowing good.

It’s so neat to think Roxanne and I started off as social media friends and yet even from states away and not a lot of face to face , still are able to re-kindle our friendship in person. Love this talented hardworking lady ! It was an honor hanging with her and her sweet gal friend Danielle for the day as they experienced SoCal and took a break from the everyday stressors of motherhood/careers etc. All mammas need a few days like this to getaway and spend at the spa, hair salon and being in front of the camera!

The Epler family were a delight in front of the lens, not only is this mammma stunning, but sharing the spotlight with her adorable boy and sweet husband was extra special. Maternity sessions are always special to me, their is something so beautiful about photographing expectant mothers, their glow, and their sweet growing bump and expanding family.... This Sunset Beach spot was perfect for this family session as I was able to capture them with the perfect beach weather that also highlights that open seaside brush on the pathway walking down. With all the wonderful Orange County photography locations its hard not to make this one a favorite, with its diverse scenery.

I feel so honored when families continue to choose me year after year to document their special moments! I am so grateful that you all trust me with your precious littles and feel so incredibly lucky to call this my “job”.

I’ve known this particular family, The Dunbar Family, since their first daughter was just a baby! Her sweet hubby inquired with me about gifting his wife , Julie, a photo session when their first daughter was just 6 months old. Isn’t that the sweetest gift? Since then, I have had the pleasure of watching & documenting this little family grow! From baby bumps to newborn sessions to family sessions - and all the in-between . I am so grateful to be able to call these clients my friends!

For this sweet little motherhood session we walked around the golden fields and played and sang songs (maybe even used a little ice cream bribery for a few smiles ;) 

Thank you Julie for always entrusting me with your prescious milestones! -Xoxo

 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.

“May you always know little one, you were wished for, longed for, prayed for, and wanted."

I love connecting with families I meet and getting to know their story. This sweet little guy, Jordan, is just shy of 2 years old, waiting for his adoption to be complete. This family came all the way from Arkansas to visit Jordan as just in a few weeks they get to take him home forever . I couldn't feel more honored to capture this special time for them.

 This is a beautiful family from the outside in guys! I love getting to photograph families! Not to forget I am in LOVE with little Sienna’s sweet smile guys! This spunky little girl is SO loved and  full of energy and joy! She is going to be a BIG sister soon and I feel so honored I get to capture it! This blue eyed family made my job super easy as we wandered the beach and played together. I really can’t say enough how much I love documenting the connection between families and moments that can be so fleeting. It is so rewarding to call this my “job” and to give tangible memories to families like this. <3

So I’m incredibly behind on blogging guys! I have quite a few fresh new sessions hitting the blog soon though! 

This Shaw’s Cove Laguna Beach Session had that soft dreamy sunset light that I just love! The Dowden’s Family came all the way from Indiana to visit our California beaches and I swear they look like Californians, don’t they? Little miss Emily (age 2yr) is about to be a BIG sister! She was full of many expressions and excitement which made it such a joy to capture her! Not to forget to mention her adorable little boho dress her mamma managed to find for our session, I mean how cute are those sleeves?! This sweet girl is so incredibly deeply loved and it shows! Grandma Karen reached out to me to capture the generations of her family and I am so honored to have been able to document their growing family for them while on vacation. I mean, what better way then on vacay right? 

If you have been putting off family photos or trying to get a large session done, now is the time to do it! you wont regret having these tangible memories for years to come with those you love!

This gorgeous mamma, Jessica,  is a dear friend of mine and I just can’t get enough of photographing her new little girl Avery. For this session we incorporated floral crowns and flowy neutral toned  dresses to really get that dreamy feel to our session. I loved just sitting in the fields with these two watching them interact and capturing their love + bond. I think motherhood is so incredibly beautiful and we really can’t photograph it enough. I love the raw emotion and real connection between a mamma and her offspring , I love to get those natural organic shots that allow us to once remember a time that seems to go by so fast. Scroll down for more from this session.
