Laurel and Andy are married!

What is more romantic than a gorgeous, rose garden wedding in Golden Gate Park? I’m coming up blank on that one, too. Laurel and Andy had a lovely wedding in late September and I was lucky enough to be there to capture their day. Congratulations to you both!

Time to Move

Some of you may already know but for those who don’t, I’m moving. We are leaving San Diego and heading up to the Monterey area. For those of you here in SD don’t panic! I will still be shooting down here at least once a month through the end of the year and possibly longer. I’ll post my available dates for you all to peruse to make sure you get in. With more limited spots, they will book quickly!

That said, from today through about June 12 I may be a little more difficult to reach. We are doing a massive clean out for the next few days and then the movers will take over our lives for most of next week. Please please please be patient with me during this transition! I promise: I’ll get back with you as soon as I can so DO leave messages and send emails:)

And since a post wouldn’t be a real post without at least one photo…




San Diego Balloon ride 2012

Here’s a panoramic from our balloon ride last Sunday. Gotta love San Diego!

Bernardo Winery- North County San Diego Location

Bernardo Winery is not just a place for growing grapes. It is an amazing place to have your wedding or maybe just some family photos, an engagement or maternity session, or maybe your senior photos. If you have never been here let these images tempt you to check it out. When you’re done checking it out, give me a call to set up you session there. Do you love these photos? Do you wish you could have them on your iPhone, iPad or Android? You CAN! This entire album is available for $15 as a convenient little app for your phone or iPad. Shoot me an email to get yours!

The Sweetest Sweet Thing

Once upon a time in a land far, far away I wouldn’t go near a baby for any amount of money. I was convinced that I would drop, break, or somehow irreparably damage any baby that came into contact with me. Some of my fears were enforced every time a baby saw me because they would burst into tears (this still happens, by the way). Then, I had one.  And I had another one. I’m done with that part of my life now (that factory is CLOSED) but have grown really fond of that sweet newborn smell. Is there anything better than that? Why yes, there is. Handing that baby back to its mama when the smell turns, well, not so nice. Regardless, I love when I get a chance to cuddle a newborn for one of these very special shoots.

Sweet, sweet K lived up to all of my expectations. She was SO sweet smelling I almost tucked her in my bag and made off with her. Thank you SO much Mandy and big sister, M, for letting me come hang out and for sharing your newest girl with me. I am looking forward to photographing you gorgeous gals as you grow.

Now there are only a couple of things left for you to do. First: Go check out Mandy’s testimonial HERE. Second: give me a call and let’s set up a shoot for you before I’m booked for the rest of the year! 760-840-7615

The Clubhouse at Brook Hills, Fallbrook, CA

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the people at The Clubhouse as Brook Hills in Fallbrook, CA. It is a brand, spanking new wedding and event venue in northern San Diego County. They have a full kitchen set up for your caterer’s delight including an indoor grill, a full bar, veranda complete with wisteria, changing rooms with plenty of room for makeup and hair artists, gorgeous green lawns, koi pond, romantic bridge and the list keeps going. Check out the photo gallery and send them some love. Book soon, though, because once the word is out it’s going to be tough to get in!


Like what you see? Be sure to book your event/wedding/family/product session with me soon! Limited spots available through the end of 2012: Call 760-840-7615:)
