I recently had a chance to photograph the lovely Isobel from Bel and Beau and her adorable kids Holden and Greyson.  Isobel and her family traveled for a month from San Diego up the CA coast and stopped in Santa Barbara along the way.  We photographed in their cute little Airbnb bungalow downtown and I had the best time getting to know them!  You have to follow Isobel to see the amazing places they visit @belandbeau.  She gives the best tips and tricks to find great places to stay with your kids too!

Kim and David had the most beautiful wedding at San Ysidro Ranch and it was recently featured on Grey Likes Weddings and you can take a peek at the story here.  I loved how they included their beloved poodles in the wedding!

The talented ladies from TOAST hosted a baby shower at my studio a few weeks ago and I had the honor of photographing it.  It was for their dear friend and colleague, Juliann and she looked adorable in the floral crown that Toast made for her!  Every detail was amazing and the vendors that made it happen are some of the very best!

This engagement session was a special one for me… my sister Jenn and her fiance Steve are getting married, and I couldn’t be happier for them!  I had the honor of photographing their engagement session recently and we had such a great time!  I photographed their session with film and my favorite camera, the Contax 645.  Jenn and Steve met in high school (can you believe it!) and they’re perfect for each other.  I can’t wait for their big day!
