Documenting lovely families is not only my work, but one of the things that brings me most joy in life. Every single family I meet is exactly like mine in so many ways… They are wonderful, beautiful, messy, crazy, imperfect and joyful all at the same time, and I love everything about them! Thank you to everyone who has hired me this year! I hope your holidays are full of love!




Five years ago I was blessed to meet the sweetest family from Switzerland. They hired me for a family session during their vacation in Laguna Beach. (You can check out that session here). Of course they fell in love with our beautiful town and just recently visited again. Their mom-son connection was once again inspiring to see and capture. Photographing this little guy was such a joy that I could easily forget that he didn’t understand a word of English 🙂

I really hope they keep visiting, or maybe some day I’ll shoot their portraits in Switzerland… That would be a dream!




A while ago I photographed  this gorgeous lady in Las Vegas. This summer I got to meet her little girl just in time for her first birthday. We braved the 118-degree weather for a short outdoor session, and it was so worth it! Talking to Kristin is inspiring. She is so passionate about life and the future of our children. Check out her work at Our Little Humans.

“Do you like jeeping in the desert?” They asked. “I have no idea… but I really want to find out!” I replied.

So we went. And through some crazy wind, hiking in the wrong shoes, and helping an up-side-down jeep get back on it’s wheels, we had a really fun adventure!

I’m so thankful for clients who make me “shoot outside the box” 🙂
