Sometimes parents miss out on the newborn stage. There can be a lot of things going, sometimes there are health issues, and I really think sometimes you are just so in love with your new little baby that those first few months just merge together and you don’t even realize how much time has gone […]

I get asked all the time what my favorite age to photograph is. Most people I assume it’s newborn photography, cause that is my specialty. While I absolutely love newborn photography , it’s such an incredible time in a family’s life, my favorite age is 6-9 months. Babies have so much personality (and so many […]

Since I opened the new baby photography studio in downtown Monterey, I kinda have to figure out how to do shoots all over again. While there are things that are easier than going to people’s home, there are other things that get more complicated that I didn’t even think of. It’s not that its harder […]

Apparently I really like to go big, lol. The very first cake smash in the new Monterey studio was TWINS! That’s right, 2 babies, 2 cakes, and 1 splash tub! It was seriously the cutest ever. One of my favorite parts of doing a twin cake smash is seeing how they interact with each other […]

A couple months back I was contacted to be a guest speaker at a maternity shoot out in San Juan Bautista, California. I was so honored and incredibly excited to do it! For those of you that don’t know a “shootout” is basically when get multiple photographers together for a shoot, some people also call […]

Hutson’s session was a very special for me. It was the last in home session I did before moving to the Monterey studio. While I loved the fact that parents could be at ease at home, and it was super convenient for them-in all honesty it was really hard on me. While I had the […]

This spot in Pacific Grove is one of my favorites! I love the tall trees and that beautiful golden light that breaks through them later in the day. Plus! Just down the street is Asilomar Beach. So usually for a session I’ll plan to split it up between the two locations and you get the […]

Devon’s momma wanted a more relaxed posed newborn session. So basically not a lot of posing. Funning thing is it’s almost harder to do a “relaxed” pose than a regular one. One of the reasons is babies are so used to curling up, they tend to hid their face. Also I’ve noticed they tend to […]

Talk about some of my favorite colors- dusty rose and mint! Charlotte is seriously the most beautiful baby. Look at those incredible cheeks! I remember she wanted nothing to do with sleep, unless she was wrapped, lol. But I still think we got some amazing variety.

This maternity session turned out to be more than I ever originally imagined! I had been wanting to set up a shoot to photograph all the maternity dresses I have available for maternity clients to borrow for their photo sessions. I also wanted to have a background for them that was the same, or at […]
