I’ve known Justin and Graciela since High School! It’s so wonderful to see their family growing as I continue to photograph them. I did a family shoot with them the last time Nina just started walking! It was fun to catch up with them and see how much their girls have grown. They have just such a photogenic family! I loved capturing the girls’ spirit and exploring around the reservoir looking for great light. Some of my favorite family photos ever are from this session. Thanks Justin and Graciela for producing such sweet, beautiful girls, it was a pleasure to photograph you guys! xo


I always love getting featured, but getting featured on 100 Layer Cakelet makes me particularly giddy. Hilary did an absolutely amazing job with this party and she deserves to get some serious shout outs for it, so glad this party has been featured today! For the full featured, click HERE

Footloose and fancy free is what I’d like to call this wedding. With an endless laughter in the air, these two were not like the typical 20 year relationship you would imagine. They were like little high school love birds, teasing each other and just being downright silly. These two gave me great inspiration, that even after 20 years they can still be so playful, so giddy and still so in love! They planned a very sweet intimate wedding at Will Rogers State Beach. Their vows had me laughing and crying, so sweet these two! And after all the fun family photos, went back to a party at a friends house complete with fresh tacos and some great boogie down moves had by all. I was so glad to be part of such a wonderful day shared between these two long time friends. Oh, the marriage also sprung another giant step for them, moving in together! Hope it’s all going amazing Heidi and Scott, kisses!

Oh, how I love first looks! This is one of my favorite series of first look pics I’ve taken. He just looks so excited, so cute!
