“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.”

I love this family and I loved everything about their session. We actually go way back to our college days and it’s so exciting to see us grow together in the same stage of life-the young children, messy, crazy stage. Mom and dad are so kind and absolutely in love and the kiddies where all smiles during […]

This sunset session over at Paramount Ranch was just dreamy in every way. When Jane called and asked me to photograph her and her husband for their holiday cards I was so excited. Jane is a wedding planner over at Jane Alexandra Events and in the past we’ve worked a beautiful wedding together. The first time I […]

Meet one of our 2017 Splendid Joy brides, Lili! This past year I’ve fallen in love with love and photographing weddings and I’m so excited to be photographing Lili and Marc’s wedding in June. These two just belong together and are head over heels for one another. And they did a great job during their engagement session […]

The month of October I was privileged to meet so many wonderful families during the time I photographed mini-sessions. One of them was this sweet family that had the most darling little guy. He loved his time at the ‘ranch’ and was so excited when horses made their way through it. Mom and dad are […]

It’s fall family session season and it kicks off with the beautiful Thomas family. This year was a big year for them as they welcomed a new bundle of joy into their world and as you can see, she fits in just perfectly. Big sister is such a help to her mommy and Jr. is […]

I love capturing the joy that radiates from people as they spend time with the one who makes them sparkle. I’m even more thrilled when they ask me to photograph them again! I had the privilege of photographing Jason and Kim earlier this year for their anniversary and when they were recently visiting from out […]
