This little fella just discovered how fun it is to play in the sand... & as soon as he did, there was no stopping him! I love photographing kids because they make me appreciate life's simple pleasures even more.

SO adorable! I really enjoyed hanging out with little Renzo, mommy & auntie after the shoot too. Here are a few faves & check out the rest that made it to the coffee table book.

Jayden & Cameron

Another batch of super cute expressions. Jayden has the most infectious smile. She was such big sister - helping us get little Cameron to smile. "Cameron, Cameron.." she kept calling in her sweet voice. Gave him big hugs and shared Cheerios too :)

I can never get enough of the real smiles I get when photographing kids...

in their traditional Korean outfits...

Zara & Sean

Can't believe how fast these little ones grow! I photographed Zara when she was a few months old last year & little Sean not too long ago when he was a just few days old! They are growing to be more and more adorable...

look at those eyes!
and that smile...
too cute together!

Hazele & Kyle

A very hip wedding! Hazele & Kyle opted for an urban, fashion-forward style. I love it when weddings show so much about the couple. Hazele even designed and hand-made her bridesmaids dresses... talk about labor of love! BelleVarado Studios served as a gorgeous backdrop for awesome photos & a great party. These guys sure know how to have FUN.

Working with some of my favorite vendors always makes it more exciting...

Ceremony Magazine Party

The annual Ceremony Magazine party was at The Richard Nixon Library. Coordinated by one of my favorites, Carolyn Chen of The Special Day. It is where Southern California's finest vendors meet & mingle. It's always great to see & chat with fellow vendors less the craziness of a working day...

Kristen & Griff : Wedding

I had an absolute blast photographing Kristen & Griff's wedding. Not only are they a gorgeous couple, they also have such great energy! And so did the rest of their family & friends... I was greeted by hugs & left with more hugs. They make me love my job even more!!! Gerri, I'm still calling you mom :)

It was a FUN wedding! Entertainment by Michael Angelo sure kept everyone on their feet. Videography by BW Video Productions, flowers by Bits of Whimsy. The Virginia Country Club
set as a beautiful backdrop for most of the portraits too. Big thanks to the Roberto Valenzuela & Raychelle for shooting with me.

Here are a few favorites & the slideshow I played at their wedding and a little more...
