We met up by Pier 7 and had fun walking around to find these gorgeous spots. San Francisco was sunny and gave us such pretty light to shoot in.. I love all of these…

Meet Jordan & Drew— one super adorable couple …who are expecting their first baby!

a baby?


I am so excited to share the happy news! Jeff and I are expecting our third baby in June! We are ecstatic and feel so lucky to be blessed with another sweet little life.

I just made it to the 12 week mark and wanted to celebrate with some special portraits with my hubby.

I had Brittany Ensley come out & work her magic on my hair/make-up. I am soooooo glad that I chose her to do me up. She is so talented!


(I can not stress how important it is to hire a talented hair/make-up artist for portraits. You will look good, feel beautiful, and that small touch with turn ordinary photos into something spectacular! Brittany is located in the Santa maria area….and is UH-MA-ZING! If you are looking for someone to glam you up for a session, be sure to book with her! Email me for her contact info)

A huge THANK YOU goes to my sister, Tonya Joy, who took these gorgeous pictures. Tonya outdid herself on these…and I am just in love with how these turned out. I love how she captured how I feel about my hubby….how he feels about me…and how happy we are! Really, these pics are heirlooms! Thank you T!

Maternity: Melissa

This was such a fun maternity session….Melissa is a friend & fellow photographer… and she was basically up for anything for her maternity session. Originally we had planned to have a sunrise session….but on the early morning of the shoot, some dense fog rolled in. There was no sun! We decided to brave the fog…and I’m so glad that we did! These images turned out perfect… Melissa is due in less than a week and she looks so perfectly tiny! I can’t wait to meet her new little man! :) Melissa’s gorgeous hair and makeup was done by Krystal Davis…she did an amazing job (….shoot me an email if you’d like her contact info!)



It’s not fair to look this good while pregnant! :)


Melissa, you’re gorgeous!



Up before the sun…


Can’t wait to share this very early morning shoot with you!
Be back soon with more of this beautiful mama-to-be.
