I absolutely adore solo shoots! Nothing better than helping someone feel like a confident model! Love seeing people let loose and have fun with it! You don’t need to be in a relationship to get photos done! Do it for yourself or gift them to your loved ones as a nice picture they can hang up! 💝
Sup? I love a good ring shot! I also love shooting at the beach! It is so fun capturing each personality and getting to showcase them! These moments in life are going to pass you buy fast! So hold on tight!
Hi. This season of photography has been pretty slow, which I’m not mad about since I’ve had a lot going on in my life but if you want to help a girl out and need some photos - don’t hesitate to book me or buy my prints! It truly would mean the world 🤍 I hope you enjoy some pictures of me in Maine, my favorite place to be. Happy Monday y’all and I hope you have a blessed week!
Vows. They got the whole area to themselves and got an intimate moment alone with themselves and God. The waves crashed as the sun began to set, it was a beautiful thing to watch and be a part of. I think everyone should do this whether one month after their wedding or five years after their wedding! You get to put on your wedding garb and basically elope- no stress of the wedding, no one else but you (and me of course lol) and just a taking it all in/enjoyment! You get a ton of pictures and a fun little adventure! Something totally unique ☀️
Strike a pose! Even in the cold you can still get some great photos! I honestly think winter brings for the best outfits because you have all the wonderful accessories! Coats, scarfs, hats, mittens, boots, and so on! I actually like the cold! I’m just not used to it in SoCal lol I think I would really thrive in a four season climate but alas! Do you like the cold?
I absolutely LOVE dogs!! Can’t get enough of these funny and adorable pictures! You furry friends are just as much part of your family! Don’t forget to include them in your photos! I know they can be a little much, even more of a loose canon than kids but they also add so much to your memories! You can bring a leash to tie them up while you just want photos without the chaos or put them in the car. Either way to answer your question now: yes you can bring your dog! The bigger the dog the better lol Also I miss having a dog.
A lot of people aren’t comfortable having their pictures taken and aren’t comfortable getting it taken. One thing that helps us doing it more often! If you never take photos then you’ll always feel awkward! I love seeing people open up and start to feel at ease! It’s always wonderful knowing I’m giving them something to feel proud of! Also grabbing a friend to be in pictures with you always helps to make it more fun! Happy Monday everyone!
As you can tell the mother & son combo is one of my favorites. Been such a joy to capture that bond with so many different clients. I love when parents want to take pictures with their kids and have a moment to look back on of not just their child. But them and their child. I know it can be hard to want to get all dressed up for a picture and you mostly want to remember them as they are at that age. But did you ever think what it might mean to them to have a picture with their mom to look back on, especially when they might not remember that moment. Just some food for thought. I really wish I got more pictures with my parents growing up and not just a ton with me only.
Kids!! This was the second kid I ever photographed before that 14 was the youngest! I absolutely love this family! They are so precious and made me be like- I think I can do this! Before that I didn’t know how kid photography would go for me. And let me tell you it is not without its challenges. Especially if the kid didn’t get a nap, doesn’t like the outfit or is just not feeling it! It’s so hard for them to grasp just suck it up and smile for 30 minutes LOL That’s where the creative problem solving comes in and I get to try to get them to open up and capture their personality! So if you got kids, stop putting off getting nice pictures of them cause as you already know, they grow up so so fast!! PS you don’t need holidays to be an excuse- do a birthday shoot every year or just pick a random day. Anything is better than nothing. Make it a whole family affair and do an hour with all the combinations- as parents you should be part of the memories too!! 💫
The way a man looks at his bride. The way Christ loves the church. A first dance is so special and intimate. Seeing the couple interact in such a vulnerable way, it’s very telling. It honestly might be one of my favorite parts of the whole celebration. Vows are obviously up there - I love both words and dance. Hard to choose between the two. What is your favorite part of a wedding and why?
Facts about me! 1. 22 years old. 2. Only child. 3. Born & raised in SoCal. 4. Been to 22 states. 5. Danced for 10 years. 6. Grew up with a dog. 7. Wear contacts. 8. Drink tea. 9. Love antiques. 10. Hiked a 14ner. It’s actually hard coming up with facts lol Hope you got to know me a little better now! Most important is I’m a child of God. It’s good to know who you are hiring and working with as well as who my clients are! What are some facts about you? 🤗
Let’s celebrate!! 🥳 The grand exit is always my favorite. This was the first time I got to break out my new lens I got the day before! I love capturing the moment for people- I can’t help it. Feel lucky to get to do what I do! I’ve seen lots of grand exits done but I think you can never go wrong with sparklers!! Also do the grand exit before the end if you want your guests & photographer to be there! Hope you all had a great Tuesday and thank you for supporting my work 🤍
Walking in a winter wonderland ❄️ A snow princess! If you want to book an adventure shoot and take pictures in the mountains then let me know!! I would not mind going back to this beautiful place! Also you should make snow ice cream! Just find untouched spot, grab it and put it in a big bowl. Then pour the desired amount of half n half, sugar, and vanilla! Stir it all together, put it in a mug and enjoy!! Honestly so amazing! Don’t forget to get a blow up unicorn for sledding! Grab some friends and make it an adventure!! Maybe hire a photographer to capture all the fun? 🤪
Family time is the best time! As the holidays are over and you start going back to your normal routine make sure you appreciate those precious moments because they aren’t guaranteed the next year! I also know a lot of people didn’t get the cherished family time they normally do. My heart is with you as the holidays have been different for me for five years now. Each year changing even more. For me as well as some we are glad they are over- especially if you work retail. But if you want an excuse to get the whole family together then shameless plug to get some photos done. My grandparents have a family photo of all of us from their 65th wedding anniversary on their wall from 4 years ago and I love looking at it every time I go over! That photo is literally priceless.
Happy New Year!! 🎊 That sunset & engaged glow! I love making people feel confident taking pictures! I always try and sneak in some solo shots- especially of the women! I’m excited to see where my business goes this next year! It’s all in Gods hands! Thank you to everyone who has supported me- it means the absolute world 💫
Sibling love!! ❣️ My first 20 minute time slot mini shoot back in October! I’ve done two since!! If you are wanting some nice photos but don’t need an hour specialized shoot then look out for my next mini shoot which I plan to have end of January! It will be the new year soon! A great time to create some memories with a photo session! Or you can gift one to someone ☺️
Those I just got married vibes ~ It’s your wedding day! Let’s get excited about it!! Let yourself celebrate in whatever way you need! It only happens once! Of course unless you plan a vow renewal elopement on the beach! Soak up the moment with your love for the second time and get all those photos you wish you got on your wedding day when you can actually breathe and enjoy the moment! Plus I think we all as women want a reason to put on the wedding dress again and take some cute pictures! I know I would! Think of this as a great anniversary gift! Whether it’s been 1 year or 50 years! Plus if you want a new dress or your original one it doesn’t fit then grab yourself something different! Throw in some flowers and write updates intimate vows! On top of rocks over looking the ocean or on top of a mountain over looking a valley! Let’s go somewhere fun in nature you both love!! 💛
I absolutely love people. I love meeting new people! One of the best things about being a photographer!! What is one thing you love about your job? 🤗 Also just because the holidays are coming to a close doesn’t mean it’s too late to gift yourself or someone else with priceless photos 💛
Hey!! Since it is Jesus Birthday I thought I would give Him a shoutout! Short testimony time! I would not be where I am without God. Grew up going to church off and on. Started trusting Jesus at 13. Changed courses at 15. Baptized at 17. Going through grief at 19. Back to re-learning to trust God with my future at 21. Can’t wait to see what the Lord does at age 23. Which will mark 10 years. As for now He is continuing to sanctify me and prune me into His likeness. It’s never too early or too late to surrender your life to Christ. Believe. Repent. 🙏🏻💛
Merry Christmas! Thank you to everyone who gave me the honor of getting to take your photos these past two months!! I hope you all enjoy celebrating the birth of Jesus! Happy Birthday to our Lord & Savior 🙏🏻💙 #coronadelmar #tidepools #orangecountyphotographer #socalphotographer #coronadelmarphotographer #coronadelmarbeach #portraitphotographer #familyphotographer #californiaphotographer #merrychristmas2020 #happybirthdayjesus

Have some fun with it! #michigan #travelphotographer #muchiganphotographer #portraitphotographer #detroitphotographer #fallfestive #socalphotographer #adventurephotographer #detroitmichigan #photography
I love getting my couples to loosen up by dancing with one another! It gives them movement, contact, and laughing! This park is super cool and in one of my favorite cities- Long Beach! #eldoradopark #longbeachphotographer #longbeach #portrait #orangecountyphotographer #couplessession #socal #couplephotography #socalphotographer
One thing I love about photographing kids is the challenge of gaining their trust so they open up and get outside their comfort zone! Plus kids have a wonderful imagination and innocence that is very beautiful to capture! #kidphotography #kidphotographer #childphotographer #childportrait #kidportrait #funphotos #costamesa #orangecountyphotographer #socalphotographer

Just a bunch of flowers blowing in the wind. #orangecounty #flowers #wind #september #lagunabeach #topoftheworld #socalphotography #canon #southerncalifornia #nature #beautifulday #yellowflowers
I actually saw a rattlesnake on this hike! He was in a different bush of flowers. I was mesmerized by the flowers and almost didn’t see him lol glad nothing happened! #flowerphotography #lagunabeach #topoftheworld #photography #orangecounty #yellowflowers #naturephotography #hikingphotography #southerncalifornia
The last row before my new feed! Some wild flowers on a trail in Laguna Beach- Top of the World. The colors are so vibrant and it almost looks like a bush. #socalphotographer #socal #lagunabeach #canon80d #orangecountyphotographer #flowerphotography #flowers #wildflowers #hiking #nature #naturephotography #trails #topoftheworld #september
May I have this dance? It’s so interesting to think of all these wedding traditions. Some of them make sense and others you are like where did this come from? #longbeach #longbeachphotography #california #smallwedding #churchwedding #firstdance #socal #weddingphotography #sigma35mmart #candidphotography #socalphotographer
At the end of the day, the cake, flowers, center pieces, and even dress don’t matter. What matters is you are getting married! Even if I have to get married by a dumpster- I’d be stoked. #longbeachphotographer #orangecountyphotographer #orangecounty #longbeach #socal #photography #christianphotographer #socalphotographer #canonphotography #sigma35mmart #smallwedding #churchwedding #lifestylephotographer
