Los Angeles Photographer

Thanks for visiting!

I'm a Los Angeles, California photographer, but I am available to travel to any destination. I shoot Weddings, Events and Portraits including Maternity, Children, Families, and Boudoir.  I consider myself to be blessed to have a career in which I love, and am thankful for it everyday. Photographing people is my passion!

Please come back often to see what I've been up to. And don't be shy to leave a comment or two. :-)

My beautiful friend and colleague, Jennifer is leaving us. She and her husband Ismael are moving to Mexico for an adventure of their lives. It is a long time dream of hers to move there and experience the culture that Mexico has to offer. They are unsure of just how long they will stay, but they are letting their experience and heart determine that.

I just love when people are spontaneous and fly by the seat of their pants. You just never know what the future will hold, but by all means take a chance. No looking back, just go…you will grow so much from it. The journey is yours.

I will miss her dearly while she’s gone but I am so happy for her and Ismael for taking the leap.

Are they not the most gorgeous couple you’ve ever seen? :)

orange county portrait photographer | cohn family, baby no. 2

My friends, The Cohn’s are having their second child soon….and it’s a GIRL! Ellie is going to be a big sister and she couldn’t be happier. I am so thrilled for this beautiful family. Now, they will be in the Two Girl Club (which I certainly am part of as well). I’m looking forward to seeing my friends grow with their two children and experience the dynamics with them along the way.

Congratulations Jason, Stacey and Ellie! I can’t wait to meet the fourth member of your family. :)

The Kim’s!!! These are my amazing friends. You know those clients that you love, that have become forever friends? These are them!
I’m the lucky one whom gets to photograph this bunch year after year. They are probably some of the funnest, kindest and warm-hearted people I know. It’s always a pleasure to be in their presence. :)

laguna portrait photographer | the swartzon girls

Swartzon_110313_0162bw

These are some of my favorite gals and such a lovely family too. I’ve known the little one’s since they were babies. It’s always such a joy to see how they’ve grown each year. It makes me very emotional too because I think of my girls and how fast time flies. I also cringe because that means that I am getting old. Haha!

We had a blast running around the tide pools of Laguna. These cuties are very energetic and full of personality. I could not wipe the smile off of my face. :)
