Terry Family :: Riverside

I was so happy when Matt contacted me recently about doing some updated family photos! You might remember, they were my very first clients! They took trust in me right after I bought my camera, and I'm so grateful!
Matt's son was in town this summer visiting, and they wanted to make sure to get some shots before he returned home out of state. It was so darn cute watching all the kids interact with one another. You can see the love and friendship this family has, and it was such a wonderful afternoon spending time with them all. What an absolute gorgeous family they are. Thank you again Matt & Michelle for having me along :) ... and most importantly, for laughing at me when I made all those silly noises to get the kid's attention!

love those little bubbles he's blowing

Shannan + Eric :: Engagement | Placentia, Ca

I have known Shannan for a couple of years, as we used to work for the same ambulance company. You might recognize her from the session I did for her and her sister. We became pretty close friends, and would always have fun chats about the events in our lives. I was so incredibly happy when she met Eric, I could instantly tell she had a major attraction to him. I learned that was sweet to her, treated her well, and simply adored her for who she was, and I hadn't even met him yet. 
So, when I heard that he popped the question, I was so excited to do their engagement pictures. She borrowed her dad's 57 Bel Air, and we cruised to down to a historical house in the city of Placentia. This was actually the first time I got to meet Eric, and all I have to say is that they are COMPLETELY perfect for one other. I had so much fun just watching them enjoy each others company, flirt, laugh and play around. 
Enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them. Congratulations to you both!
... and did I mention she is 6'1" and he is like 6'7" !!! I love it!

Happy Birthday Hailey!

Hailey is in love with dogs of all sizes and colors! Hailey's 2nd birthday is coming up, and what a better party to have for a girl that loves doggies, is to have a "dogs invited" birthday party! We got together to get a few good shots to include on her birthday party invitations. What a sweet and precious little one she is. Happy Bithday Hailey!

Taleah + James :: Wedding | Fontana, Ca

Taleah & James were my first Engagement Session clients, and luck so had it, that they were my first Wedding clients as well! I have been interning quite a bit with my favorite photographers ever Erin & Louis Palos, with Palos Studio, but had yet to shoot a wedding on my very own. The weather was beautiful, there was an absolute calm and peaceful feel to the day. I'm so very thankful that Taleah & James trusted me to capture their most special day, and that it was. 
Taleah sang the most beatiful acapella song to her husband-to-be by India Arie as a surprise at the altar. I was fighting back tears, trying to take pictures. 
I love how she layered her bangle bracelets!
