bonus points….

I have recently returned from one of the very best vacations of my life.  We literally experienced everything (and more) than I imagined possible in seven days.  And yet, I feel so rested.  Got to just cut loose with my camera a bit as well.   Not sure how it could have been better….but shots like this one are certainly bonus points.  Thank you Jay and Danielle for inviting us to paradise with you.  Hope everything we captured puts a smile on your face for a lifetime.


I love everything about this image of my nephew Taylor and his very talented girlfriend, Suzi.  Aren’t they adorable together?

LOVE that photo! You and David are one of the reasons Hawaii is so beautiful! It was a perfect spot to celebrate your birthday! Thank you for capturing the breathtaking moments with your camera. You could not be more loved by us! (and our Creator!)

wish i could make the morning last…

We met in San Juan Capistrano in the early morning.  This was my second time documenting this family (lucky girl) and my first visit with Jake’s little sister, Miss Kylie.  It was a beautiful day.   Just a few more of some favorites….hard to pick really.   I just love this family…









I think this little one is fearless….she had so much fun.   The goats were pretty patient too.  Well, sort of.

Tonya! I must MUST compliment you and your family. I loved that you chose this location and you all looked so styled. I had a really great time. Even got to stand in the corn! I wish I had time to post your entire session. Such a beautiful day! xxxoo

slow down, you’re moving too fast…

Quick preview from a beautiful morning…..I may be changing my sessions up.  Turns out I LOVE mornings.

Checking out your blog, Sissel. I admire you talent of capturing an image and telling a story, along with it. You’re a gifted artist. :)
