Tamra & Robbie

Such an adorable momma and son duo. Robbie is one of the smartest and most accomplished ten year olds I have ever met, with a personality to match. They are a blast to be around, and it is so awesome being able to witness the love between a mom and her son. ]


The Lacey/Lechuga Family

Such a cute family! This is my second year taking their portraits, and it’s awesome to see how the kids have grown. Had a great day, full of perfect weather, an amazing location out on Vandenberg Air Force Base, and even saw some whales. 


Aliyaah’s Senior Session

We could not have gotten any luckier with the perfect weather we got on this day. A heat wave in October.. Only in California! We had a blast during the shoot, and the photos came out absolutely gorgeous. She was a brave girl and even got herself in the cold water as the sun was setting, but it was well worth it for the beautiful shots we got.



Griffin & Brian’s wedding 7-18-12

The lovely bride Griffin: being a photographer and former “Brookie” like myself, I was honestly somewhat worried about how she would react to having another photographer in charge of her wedding. (Besides the fact that photographers are notorious for hating being in front of the lens, and oh yeah… quite particular about how they are photographed.) All my worries went out the window as soon as it came time, though; her and her groom Brian were so easy going and a blast to work with. They were truly made for each other, and their love and adoration for each other is clear as day.

Even as the rain slowly started to fall on the beach during their ceremony, everything still ran smoothly and beautifully. Followed by a lovely reception at the Ventura Harbor Sheraton, it was an exciting, happy day had by all.



Griffin and her bridesmaids wore pretty anklets and their bare feet for the beach ceremonyImageImageImageImage

Griffin wore her mother’s wedding vail; a very special touch.Image


Since the ceremony was barefoot, Griffin wore a pair of sparkly flats for walking around and at the reception… adorable!ImageImageImageImage
