  • Home family session

    Excuse the vv short post but I've just started a new job at the LA Times! Sharing a few pictures of this sweet family at their house. 

  • Steph & James Engagement

    I cruised around Silverlake making pictures of a good, gooooood friend of mine and her awesome fiance James because she's getting married! Steph and I met yearssss ago in China. We taught at the same school together in Shanghai. It was one fabulous year. I honestly thought I'd move to China and read lots of books because I'd mostly be rolling solo. Low and behold, I found some amazing lifelong friends. Steph and I have been close ever since. Very happy when friends find love so I could not be happier for her and James to take this next step together. Loooove is the best. 

  • Lily & Pat married at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club

    Lily and Pat celebrated their wedding at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and it was beautiful. They married in the sand out front and danced the night away inside. I looooove beach weddings. Any reason to be at the beach is a good one. The smell of the Pacific Ocean is delicious and I feel like it just soothes us. Can't say I didn't shed a tear listening to their vows. A very tender moment indeed. 

  • Amazing Grace!

    It made me so happy to photograph six-week-old Grace at home with her mom and brother recently! She's already showing the world how strong she is. Truly! Returned home to my three-month-old after this session to find how huge he looks in comparison. It's incredible how fast we grow in our early weeks on planet Earth. 

  • Maria and James in Malibu

    Just a few images from a lovely afternoon with Maria and James in Malibu. They'll the embodyment of positivity and their love is something to be inspired by. 

  • Holiday family session

    Getting to photograph friends is such a sweet treat. Met Nicole before I can remember because our dads are friends. She has a great little family in Los Angeles and they wanted photos for their holiday cards. It's the perfect time for a photo session! 

  • Butterfly Beach

    Had a sweet time photographing the Mayberry family the day before Thanksgiving on Butterfly Beach. It was a gorgeous day with the perfect sunset. Mix that with one of my favorite beaches on this planet and nothing can go wrong. 

  • Family Photo Album

    Had a GREAT few days in early August hanging with family at the beach in Oxnard, California. Got the whole family together one evening for a family shoot and I put together a hardcover book for them. Sharing a few samples of the pages below! The first spread I posted is all the kids, seperated by family. And the last spread I share is the layout I designed for each of the different families. 

    I'm always happy to make a personalized design for a client! Makes it a special treat to do it for family.

  • The DeRosa Family

    It was so fun getting to know the DeRosa family while photographing them at the butterfly preserve in Santa Barbara. I met them at their house and we all rode to the spot together. All three boys were the sweetest--they even noticed a cool looking backdrop for a photo which ended up being a COOL LOOKING BACKDROP. MAD props for participation! After we were all done with the session they set off for a dinner and a movie. A perfect Friday in the books!

  • Oxford wedding bells

    There's something so special about being a photographer for a wedding because I'm inserted into this amazing celebration in the most intimate way. To top that feeling, the bride and I were able to share stories of "that time when" all day. We have memories of being kids and playing on her parents property when it was in contruction. We have memories of my older brother leading us to the not-so-great-decision of burning our barbies. We have memories of being young entreprenauers, collecting tossed out golf balls and selling them to a couse. We go way back. Way, way back. So it was the greatest honor to fly to the U.K. where Katie moved and met her prince charming to photograph their wedding. And Will is quite the charmer too. Loved this wedding and the Oxford backdrop too. You can't beat Magdalen College and later a dinner venue that was used as the infirmerie for Harry Potter! Yep, fancy!
