Steve & Liz {Married}

I shot this wedding along side my good friend Kristen at the beginning of the year. I had the very best time at this awesome wedding. Good times with great people and friends :)

Beauty is everywhere. Take a minute to appreciate the little things is something I have to remind myself of when I get overwhelmed. There is nothing I can't overcome if I take it one second at a time. I took these images when I went to Lompoc with my hubby and son. We drove to Surf Beach and on the way back I asked my hubby to stop so I could run along the side of the road and take some images of the wildflowers. Pictures remind me of great times like those :) I love road trips with my family. We have so much to be thankful for.

Robert {Portraits}

This is my baby brother. I haven't seen him in 10 years. Missed him. He is a wonderful guy! On the way to drive him to the airport it was high noon and really bright outside,but I was determined to get some images of him so we drove around and found some open shade. Here are some of my favorite images from our day. I miss him so much already!

Yvette {Isn't she lovely}

Yvette is not only beautiful but one of the sweetest persons you could ever meet. REALLY!! SO NICE!! I remember her pulling up to my house, my sis and I looked out the window and both said "ohh she is so pretty!" My sister has just finished graduating from Marinello and had not styled any person on her own yet. Yvette decided to take a chance on her. We had so much fun getting to know her. We had plenty of time to talk while my little sister Brenda did her hair and make-up. I think she did a fantastic job.
When it was time to start shooting, at first Yvette was nervous but after a bit she relaxed and was so easy to direct. It was the perfect girls day out. We had a blast! Here are some of my favorites, I know it's alot but there were tons more that were beautiful it was so hard to pick!!

Buddy, Cesar and Scooby Do

I just got home from the best family vacation I could ever ask for! Although I ran out of time to do everything I wanted to do and did not get to spend as much time with everyone as I wanted to. I am so happy. During my visit I went to see my Nino and Aunt Sunny. He has a beautiful 10 acre home. A photographers paradise. So beautiful and serene. He also has 3 amazing dogs who guard the property. He has 2 mastiff's and a Saint Bernard :) Here are some portraits I took of them. They were 3 huge sweethearts!!
