South Carolina…I love you!


I recently spent a week in Coastal South Carolina, and let me tell you a little love story.  From the majestic Southern Oaks draped in glorious Spanish Moss, the heavenly soft sanded, sea-oat lined beaches of Hilton Head, to the centuries old stone streets of Old Charleston, Bluffton, Beaufort...and everything in between, I fell in… Continue reading South Carolina…I love you!

Photo Session with Baby Selah & Aiden


I got to spend the morning photographing precious baby Selah and her adorable, big brother Aiden.  What sweethearts these two are, and amazing little models. Not a single complaint to be had the entire time, as I took hundreds of photos of them.  Kudos to Jenna (Mom) and Kim (Grandma) for finding such a cool,… Continue reading Photo Session with Baby Selah & Aiden

I had the pleasure of working with a lovely & sweet couple, Jessica & Joshua! We originally scheduled to shoot in Coto de Caza, but ended up in Palos Verdes Estates, and I'm happy we did, as the lighting was incredible! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, golden light!  Jessica looked stunning in… Continue reading Jessica & Joshua

Not a whole lot was going on, but I did take some time photographing the resident Geese.  They can be pretty mean, but today they were in a good mood, one… Continue reading Saturday at the Park

A Gorgeous Day at Mission San Juan Capistrano


It's been a couple years since I've walked the grounds of the Jewel of the California Mission's, Mission San Juan Capistrano. They don't call it the "Jewel" for nothing, it is a very beautiful Mission indeed (my favorite).  The flowers were not in full bloom, but they are definitely blooming and so beautiful. I plan… Continue reading A Gorgeous Day at Mission San Juan Capistrano

I had a wonderful time shooting family photos for this beautiful family. I can't wait for our next session at the end of the month. Here are some of my personal favorites. All shot indoors at the beach with gorgeous natural lighting (and a few with fill flash).  Enjoy

This and That…and a Frisky Cat (or 3)!


Just a few photos I wanted to share. First, our Water Hyacinths bloomed  yesterday (well one of them).  I'm glad I got the camera  out, because the blooms fade within 24 hours!  They sure are pretty. The second photo is of one of the photo disc sleeves I offer when ordering a photo disc. They… Continue reading This and That…and a Frisky Cat (or 3)!
