Leidilyn & Edward first stepped in front of my camera over four years ago for their engagement and wedding photos. I loved working with them and their engagement session is still one of my favorites, so I was beyond thrilled when Leidilyn got in touch for family photos. Capturing these milestones in their life together […]

ONE \\ It’s way too easy to burn rice. Especially when you think you’re being smart by cooking it ahead of time, then walk away to do “just a few minutes” of work. Fast forward half an hour later and the house smells like burnt rice, which happens to smell vaguely similar to burnt tortillas. […]

My SIL and I were recently chatting about vacations and the topic of Puerto Vallarta came up. I haven’t visited in a few years but it is one of my favorite places to go for a relaxing and affordable vacation. The town itself is charming in its own way and only a $2-roundtrip bus ride […]

I thought 20 months would be too young for him to really enjoy Disneyland. Boy, was I wrong! Turns out, you’re never too young for the Happiest Place on Earth (especially when you get in for free!). This kid was fully enamored with all things Disney and still, two months later, asks about Mickey Mouse, […]

Funny story: ┬áMr. F confessed he was surprised by how much he loved the photos because at the end of the session, he was convinced it was a train wreck! Sure, the little guys had their own idea of what was going down during our time together. And sure, their idea might not have been […]

This session almost didn’t happen thanks to Karl the Fog. We first thought about changing the location, then delayed it a bit, and finally the fog lifted just enough for the gorgeous morning sun to shine through. Little Sis was sound asleep when the family first arrived at Crissy Field and was none to happy […]
