Megan and James are two beautiful people who I’ve known since High School, and probably further back than that. I had the honor of photographing them for an anniversary shoot in the woods, so when I got a call that they were pregnant I couldn’t imagine a more perfect couple to be parents. Megan wanted somewhere beautiful and green for her photos, and we were so lucky to find Negro Bar, a part of the Folsom Lake State Recreational Area in Folsom, Ca. I can’t wait to see what this little boy grows up into, and how cute baby Luke will be.Read More
It is the year of the Stahl’s; with them getting married earlier March 2017, adopting Mr. Archie a few months before hand, and now 7 months later being pregnant with a gorgeous baby boy. We met back up at High Hill Ranch up in Placerville, Ca for Marlee’s maternity shoot; not just so I could buy an Apple Pie for Thanksgiving, but also because the sunsets you get amidst the apple trees are just gorgeous. It was such a pleasure getting to hang with their family again, and I swear Ava is growing like a weed. Still a dancer, and so many more sentences being said. I love this family, and can’t wait to meet their little boy Kylan whenever he decides to come.
Go check out Marlee & Michael’s wedding in 2017, and their family session last year at the same amazing location!
I can’t believe how fast they grow up, and Jackson is officially 2 years old here. The Bernatowicz decided to go to the Manhattan Beach Pier in Manhattan Beach, Ca where they recently bought a home. Of course the adorable Holly was included, and this was the year of trucks for Jackson. We’re a little bit scared of the water, but giggle pretty frequently. Go watch him start to grow up, because it couldn’t be cuter.

I absolutely love Hailey and Ryan, and met them when I had the oppurtunity to photograph their wedding back in 2015 in Santa Barbara, Ca. Every interaction between these two is the epitome of so much fun, and not a moment is without laughter or the occasional joke. When I heard they were pregnant with a baby girl, I was so stoked to get to photograph their maternity and spend a day laughing with them again.
”I feel blessed to have captured these special moments of my pregnancy and I will forever look back at these photos and remember the woman I was before my whole world changed for the better. “ - Hailey
There is nothing I love more than seeing my couples featured on amazing sites like Something Turquoise!
Elizabeth and Caleb have been married for 10 blissful years, having met in high school and just recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary. They had planned on renewing their vows as well as having photos taken to commemorate the occasion, but through unforeseen life circumstances the plans fell through and it was put off. Elizabeth is a local photographer to the Flagstaff area and Caleb is a firefighter, so their schedules allowed for us to make this occasion the something special they both deserved. Lucky for us, the morning of the 25th the Grand Canyon released that the South Rim would be open for visitors and we were greeted with snow capped peaks and 18-degree weather.
Brittany and Johnny were married at The Gardens at Los Robles, in Thousand Oaks, Ca and their wedding was just absolutely beautiful. When they celebrated their 1 year anniversary, they wanted a photo shoot at the same venue that they got married at exactly a year later! The day was full of some amazing surprises; starting with Johnny bringing their wedding vows. Something that Brittany did not know about! After re-enacting their ceremony site, their first kiss, and even a sunset picture next to the lake we called it a day. What both Johnny and I found out later though, was that Brittany was pregnant on this anniversary with a baby boy! I’m pretty sure surprise maternity shoots are my new favorite things.Read More
The Bernatowicz are the definition of not only adorable, but some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I have had the pleasure of photographing Jackson since he was born, at this overwhelming cute af newborn session. I’m combining his 6 month and 1 year shoot since they were pretty short. But I am absolutely in love with watching this little boy get bigger. Not to mention getting to see their adorable dog Holly again. Can everyone please include their beloved animals every time the have a family photoshoot?Read More
Such a fun blog that featured the gorgeous Megan! Mama probably does need a cocktail, haha
I can't believe I spent my last day of 2016 with this gorgeous mama to be with her second daughter. Megan and I were so absolutely blessed with not only finding some snow, but a beautiful roaring river. The temperature was cold, and Megan battled the snow for her maternity shoot like a champion. We even were able to get a peak of sunset while shooting.
I cannot believe how fast kids grow up, and equally how fast time flies! I met the gorgeous little Miss. Ava when she was just 3 years old and while she has gotten a bit taller, her love of dancing in circles has definitely never changed. Now just 5 years old, her hair is longer, her dancing leaps a little bit bigger, and her hugs at the end of the session were pretty much heart melting.Read More
