Kobe {Class of 2017} | High School Memories | Carlsbad Senior Photographer

This guy was fun to photograph.  I've known him since he was about 10 years old so I was able to tease him a little! Haha! I had a good time! He has this quiet strength about him.  He's stoic and reserved but I know there is this other side just waiting to be released.  I was up to my antics to get a real smile for mom!  He probably thinks I'm loco, maybe he's onto something!  Either way, I got that smile and mama was happy!  Cheers to your senior year Kobe!  Here are a few of my favs from his session on the ranch...

Chloe {Class of 2017} | High School Memories | Fallbrook Senior Photographer

This sweet girl comes from one of the nicest families on the planet!  Its been an honor to watch her blossom into the beautiful young lady you see in these images.  She caught my attention years ago when I heard her name, Chloe.  That is my daughter's name and I just love it.  I wanted to know who this other Chloe was and let me tell you she is pretty amazing!  I've photographed Chloe's family, Chloe's older sister, Ellie, and now miss Chloe {hoping to capture miss Abby too in a couple of years}.  Each time I am blessed by the sweetness and kindness that permeates their existence.  I met up with Chloe, her bestie, Christiana, and her lovely mama for her senior session at a local nursery to capture these moments.  We laughed, mom and I teared up and we captured these amazing images.  This girl is just a natural beauty and I fell in love with pretty much every photo in her gallery.  Here are a few of my favorites! Enjoy!

Josh {Class of 2017} | El Camino High School | Encinitas Senior Photographer

I had fun hanging with Josh for his senior session in the Encinitas village!  We got out just in time for the craziness of the Encinitas Christmas parade. There were people everywhere! Josh is a super chill guy and was totally easy to work with.  Here are a few of my favs from his urban inspired senior session.

Baby Carlo | Simply Babies | San Diego Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world Baby Carlo!  It was such a blessing to photograph another addition to this fire family.  Of course we had to capture a few images with Carlo in his adorable fireman knit outfit.  How precious is that?  I love incorporating special little details into my clients sessions.  They make their session unique to them and they hold a cherished memory.  I met this adorable family at their place in Lakeside to photograph their lifestyle newborn session. Here are a few favs from their session at home.

Hannah {Class of 2017} | High School Memories | Laguna Beach Photographer

This was a super fun session for me!  This beautiful girl right here is my niece Hannah.  She drove down the hill a couple of hours just so I could do her senior photos.  I was so honored when she asked me to take them.  She's our first niece, and I can't believe she is going off to college in a couple of months.  Her mama was pregnant with her when I first started dating my husband, I fell in love with her as soon as she was born. She was so tiny and adorable and I adored her.  I still adore her, she's gorgeous as you can see, but she is also strong, and sensitive, funny, sassy, loyal, determined, and has a beautiful soul.  We started her session in the adorable little downtown of Laguna Beach.  She, like so many teens is in love with the beach so Laguna was a perfect fit.  We captured moments in the town and then headed to the beach.  The beaches in Laguna are stunning and I love how this particular beach is almost like a cove and there are tide pools.  The marine layer rolled in quickly so our time was cut short but we came prepared and had a little fun with lights in the low light.  I love the images from Hannah's session.  They are beautiful, fun, and most of all, show exactly who she is at this moment in her life.  Enjoy some of my favorites from her session!
