My fiance’s and I friends visited from Texas about a month ago and while they were in town they wanted to make sure they booked a session with me to get some photos done. We have been wanting to take photos since they first got together a few years ago. So, finally the anticipated session with Josh and Kaitlin.
My niece turned 6 months in February and my sister and I set up a time to take some photos of her, since we were unable to take each month of her first year we thought we could just take photos of her every six months. We had a lot of fun with her, she is the cutest little girl on this planet and is just a ham, she worked it the entire shoot and was so good for the entire shoot.
I spent an entire day with Ali, My Fiance (assistant for the day), and Erin (makeup and hair) up highway 74 towards Anza. We found an abandonded house hat we hiked too, pulled off to the side of the road and stopped at Vista Point looking over the Coachella Valley for sunset. this day was amazing and so much fun. I experimented with some new things and took a little change. I’d love to know how everyone feels about this shoot. Thank you so much girls for putting up with me all day and making a wonderful session.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.
I have grown up with Austin up at Lake Havasu and when I was asked to do his senior portraits I was honored. There were two parts to his photo session. We started out up at Havasu and took some photos of him in his riding gear and riding his motorcycle. After a few weeks passed I then met up with him and his family in Mission Viejo where we finished his senior portraits. We had so much fun taking his photos and celebrating his graduatuon. Once we finished his photos we all got to take a trip to Disneyland. Overall it was a good session and here are some photos from his photo session.
My friend Kirsten, whom I’ve grown up with at Lake Havasu is pregnant with her first child. While I attended her baby shower int he Los Angeles area I also took her maternity photos. I can’t believe this woman is having a baby and I cannot wait to meet this little boy. Here are some images from both her maternity session and the baby shower.
What girl has not dreamt of one day becoming a Disney Princess?
Most likely growing up you watched Disney princess movies and has always dreamt of becoming one. For one time only I would like to offer YOU to become your favorite Disney princess.
Beginning January I would like to begin Project Modern Princess.
I would like to take the classic Disney Princesses and put them in modern day outfits. I plan to have one shoot per girl (princess).
I am looking for one princess each and you must look like the princess (example: Ariel = Red Hair). I am taking applications for each princess. The application process is in case I have more then one girl wanting to be a certain princess. If it comes down to it and I have more then one girl wanting to be lets say Belle. Each girl will send me a picture of themselves and on my photography facebook page I will post each girl and which princess they’d like to be. Then whichever girl gets the most likes on their photo will become the princess.
How do you become the princess?
1) Take a look at my pinterest Disney Inspiration board for modern day princess outfits.
2) Must have one item that connects to that princess
(Example: Cinderella = Glass Slipper, Snow White = Apple or Red Bow).
3) Email me at email@example.com with your application stating which Disney princess you are interested in becoming along with a photo of yourself in your best modern princess outfit.
Now I know what you are thinking, how much is this going to be?
Each girl is required to pay $50 this is solely for Professional Hair and Makeup. The price can go up depending on each woman. Examples of how cost can go up are costumes, prints, books, products, etc. All of this will be in discussion once each woman emails me her application.
List of Princesses I am searching for:
Belle for Beauty and the Beast
Cinderella from Cinderella
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty
Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Ariel from The Little Mermaid
Pocahontas from Pocahontas
Jasmine from Aladdin
Mulan from Mulan
Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
Rapunzel from Tangled
First Choice of Princess:
Second Choice of Princess:

I tried this new thing called a Champagne Party. On a Saturday I held a True Beauty Shoot for four lucky women. As each women arrived they were welcomed with a glass of Champagne (or Sparkling Cider if they were under 21). They then were given a tour of the property and then were introduced to me makeup artist and hair stylist, Erin Nicole. A Closet was set up for the women to hang their outfits and layout everything. They began with hair and makeup while be offered more champagne, fruits, and finger sandwiches. One at a time each women would get their outfits on walk to a location and shoot. To my surprise everyone showed up around the same time and hung out and chatted, laughed, and watched each toher. They all were so sweet to each other and always complimenting each other while one was modeling. It was so nice to see each one of them being comfortable and just having fun. It was the true reason I created the Champagne Party. It was a great day and I would love to have another one towards the end of January in time for Valentine’s Day. Here are some images from the entire day including behind the scenes, detail shots and of course my lovely women.
About two months ago I was lucky enough to shoot the Murdock twins along with their mother and grandmother. Jessica had asked me if they could have some photographs with their grandmother so one day when she is not here with them they will have a photograph to look back on them. This was a very quick shoot but a good one. Here are some photos I caught.
After a long nine months my sister and brother in law were blessed with a little bundle of joy on August 12, 2012. After waiting int he waiting room for all hours of the day and night we were finally able to meet the little girl we had all been patiently been waiting to meet. I of course snapped a few photos of her within the first hour of her birth and then I snapped a few more the next day when we visited them in the hospital. A week after Jordan was born I also took her newborn photos. Below are all of the photos from her birth to her newborn photos. I love my little niece so much, you will be see so many more photos of her as she slowly grows.
