This time 3 years ago // Part 1: Fitting

   (These photos are from a boudoir shoot I did over 3 years ago as a wedding gift.) This time just 3 years ago, I was still preparing for my wedding day. The thing is, though, it was never really about a wedding, or just one day. It’s all of the details that stick like…

American Hustle //

   There is something about playing with time that fascinates me. In my photography, I love finding the balance between the old and the new, the classic and the modern. I am now offering vintage styled boudoir sessions, and this 70s inspired session that I did photography & creative directing for was overflowing with colors…

Tanya & Brett // Vintage+Boho Mountain Top Engagement

Enough of the “American Dream” //

   At 25 years old, I spent my New Year’s Eve de-cluttering my home, donating bags and bags of clothing and other items, and watching a documentary on minimalism. It wasn’t a wild night out at a club, but it was exactly what I needed. It was enough.  Coming into the new year, I was…

Megan & Max // Kenneth Village Engagement

Last weekend, I had the honor of shooting an engagement session that was incredibly close to my heart. I photographed their baby shower, their newborn session, their engagement shoot, and will be shooting their wedding in just a few months. Megan, Max, and June bug are like family to me at this point, and we effortlessly…

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain //

   (Photo credit: Chachie McDonald)  Do you remember that scene in “The Wizard of Oz” where Dorothy finally sees the man behind the curtain? You can really see the doubt, disappointment, and confusion in her eyes…and for most of my life, that scene didn’t make total sense to me. But over the last couple of…

Bianca & Grant // Malibu Sunrise Engagement

Those of you who know me are aware that I’m a morning person. But waking up at 4am, however, is a whole different version of “morning.” I have to tell you, while it was hard to get my sleepy head out of bed at first, it was 100% worth it to rise and shine to…

Elysse & John // Los Angeles Engagement

“It’s funny what happens to you when part of your heart gets born inside somebody else.” – Donald Miller I met Elysse earlier this year when I shot a portrait session with her, and right away, I knew there was something deeply special about this human. Months later when she asked me to photograph her…
