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!

Shay & David: A Family Session

I am so happy to share this sweet family with you!

Meet Shalynn & David. They are a fun, so-in-love couple who I just adore. David is serving our country in the US Navy and it was an honor for me to take pictures of these good, beautiful people!
Shalynn & David have 3 sweet kiddos…Kavi, Paisley, & Carter. (Don’t you love their names!)


(Be sure to check out Shalynn’s Etsy: She makes some super cute stuff, like the cute headbands her girls are wearing)

I love photographing a mama and her baby….pure beauty…love…

On the morning of our shoot …it was pouring rain! Luckily, the rain stopped just in time for us to meet up.

I love the kids in this next one…

Over the summer, our cute little family hopped in the car for a road trip! We traveled across California, Oregon, and Idaho and ended up at my In-law’s beautiful home! The girls had fun playing…
