California Girl

May 2, 2011

This beautiful senior is my friend’s daughter, and I had so much fun photographing her while I was on out in California last week.  She is a talented musician and beautiful soul inside and out.   I’m such an East Coast girl–I know that orange groves are pretty common in Southern CA, but I thought it was really fun that they had the trees in their yard, and wanted to try to incorporate them into the portraits.

Class of 2011

March 29, 2011

This was the second session I’ve done for this family this year–the first was her sister’s recent newborn session, and now this beautiful senior popped in during her visit from Ohio for some portraits.   Senior portraits are a little venture away from my regular portfolio, but tons of fun and a great chance to be creative with backdrops and lighting.

Senior Portraits

May 18, 2010


I don’t market to high schools, so it’s rare that I get a request for senior portraits.  But when this beautiful girls’ mom contacted me and asked for some last minute senior portraits, I told her I would be happy to give it a try.  She was such a trooper, enduring my tricks and jokes that are usually intended for much younger children.  But we did manage to get the ipod dock rocking some country for her and hopefully she had a little fun, too.

Bring on the Wind

May 17, 2009


We spent several days concerned about the rain that was forecasted the morning, and decided to go ahead with the session anyway.  Well as it turned out, the rain held off but the wind kicked up and we worked between gusts.   But what great sports these girls and their parents were, and I’m so excited to share some sneak peaks from their session.

Something’s Missing!


The youngest of these 3 siblings was looking forward to a visit from the tooth fairy, since he lost his tooth right before our session.  He was so proud showing off the little gap in his teeth–I love his cute smile!   Here are a few sneak peaks from their session–some of my favorite closeups of the older two.

And baby makes 6

November 16, 2008

You may recognize this little baby girl from one of my September newborn sessions. Today her older big brother and sister came home from their schools to visit and get a family portrait with all 4 of the kids. Little brother was full of energy, but we did manage to pin him down for a few group shots, and luckily we managed to get one with everyone looking in the right direction!
