Katie | Loyola Marymount Senior Session

I've known this lovely lady her whole life. We grew up as Lake Havasu river rats and wanna-be June Lake locals - water-skiing with super stylish life jackets, going on early morning hikes, and cooking pizza on the bbq.

Now Katie is all grown up and headed to UCLA's dental school! I'm so incredibly proud of her, even if she did sell out to UCLA... ahem, GO TROJANS!

This weekend Katie is with my family and our very best friends, the Greenbergs (hey hey mallory, kim, howie, and brandon!) at June Lake and I think I'm having a severe case of #fomo. So, blogging pretty pictures it is!


(Oh, and mom... can you grab me some shortbread chocolate chip cookies from Schat's on your way home? Love and thanks!)

I'm now booking high school and college seniors for the class of 2017! To get more information and pricing, please shoot me a quick email. I'd love to chat :)

Ryder | Sweet Nectar Society

This little guy's got style!

It was such an honor to photograph Ryder and his family for the Sweet Nectar Society at Peltzer Pine's Christmas tree lot. Sweet Nectar's mission is to provide comfort and love to families of children who are affected by serious illness, disability or injury through photography and community outreach programs.

Four-year-old Ryder has a rare neurodevelopmental disorder called William's Syndrome and was also born with severe CHD. He has such a strong, amazing spirit and when you get him to smile his little smile, it's just golden :)

The Greenbergs | Claremont Family Holiday Session

I've known this family and they've known me since I was born :). We grew up going to the lake together, celebrating holidays/birthdays/graduations, and I just love them so much! Such great people. And aren't the red accents in their outfits just awesome?! Perfect for a holiday session.
