You guys…I was so excited to photograph this session at this location! Sarah and Nick are good friends of mine and I am both blessed and extremely honored to photograph their maternity session for their first child. Sarah and Nick are just adorable. Sarah is totally the sweet school teacher and Nick the protective Firefighter. Their little guy sure does have some sweet shoes to fill! When theses two decided on Riley’s Farm for their shoot, I think my heart skipped a beat. I just get all warm and fuzzy thinking about cider and the crisp air. I know that fall is actually the end of the year, but ever since I could remember it felt like the beginning. Maybe because I associate the fall with the beginning of the new school year, new football season and so on. So when Sarah and Nick met me at Riley’s for their session, I was in my own nature-obsessed happy place. These newlyweds (yup they just got married a little less then a year ago) will be expecting a boy this coming December. I’m thrilled! This means bigger play dates and more birthday parties as our circle of friends grows larger. Congratulations my dear friends! Can’t wait to meet the newbie!


This was a day filled with love, family, and beautiful details. This was a day for Carolina and David to celebrate their relationship with each other in front of God and their loved ones. This was their day. Oh and what a gorgeous fall day it was in downtown Los Angeles. The wind created the most elegant flow to Carolina’s veil while she nestled closely to her husband, David. After their traditional Catholic ceremony we headed to the Walt Disney Concert Hall where these two were completely in tune with one another  and it made all of their images just fall into place. Good thing Carolina set aside a good chunk of time for their personal photos or I probably would have cried to cut it short at the Disney Hall. Their insanely (good) detailed wedding continued over at the Noor in Pasadena. There, Mr. and Mrs. Andrade got to enjoy it all, especially on the dance floor!

Carolina & David: Congratulations on a beautiful wedding, may your marriage continue to be filled will all sorts of goodness!

Gabriela, Joel, and Emma will welcome baby Eric to their family of three this coming November. I was ecstatic when Gabriela contacted me and said that one, she was pregnant…and two, she wanted me to photograph her maternity session again! Emma, their sweet smiling baby girl just turned one this past weekend and is stepping straight into big sister shoes while learning to walk. Whether it’s a little bit of Joel’s comedic personality, Gabriela’s easy going ways, or of course just hanging with their beautiful daughter, this family always makes me smile. Emma’s just a delight! She’s got a big heart and dazzling smile that lures you into her little toddler zone. Then you are hooked! I know exactly why her daddy is just head over heels for her. I can just see their new addition, Eric, blending right into this perfect little family! Congratulations Gabriela and Joel! Two babes are just more love to spread!!!
