The Butler Family

The Butler Family welcomed their newest addition, sweet Olivia, just six weeks ago.  What a perfect and loved baby girl, surrounded by her strikingly beautiful mom, loving dad, and proud brother and sister.  Thank you for spending a warm Fall evening with me, in one of my favorite meadows in San Diego.  I wish your growing family so much happiness.       

Alison & Rufio’s Little Italy Adventure

This mama and toddler couldn’t be any cuter.  Alison and Rufio had a playful evening exploring Little Italy, and splashing around San Diego’s waterfront park.  Rufio is excited to welcome his baby brother or sister, due to arrive on New Year’s Eve.  Alison is a beautiful, patient, and caring mama; not to mention tough.  Just a few days after our photo shoot, at 34 weeks pregnant, Alison walked 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk.  You’re absolutely amazing!  Thanks for sharing the evening with me, I can’t wait to meet your little one.         

Torrey Pines-The Gibbards

The Gibbard family couldn’t be sweeter.  Holly, Josh, Bri, and Johnny spent the evening splashing around the deep blue Pacific Ocean at beautiful Torrey Pines State Beach.  This family is so easy going and fun to be around.  Thanks for being wonderful friends, and wonderful to work with.          

Meet the Sommers

A beautiful, classic, San Diego wedding.  Jeff and Maya became husband and wife on a crisp Fall day in Point Loma.  Nestled between fountains, rose gardens, and the San Diego Bay; this couple declared their love for each other before their closest friends and family.  After the sun slipped beneath the horizon, we made our way to Stone Brewery for a celebration, full of laughter, dancing, world class beer, and lawn bowling.  Congratulations Jeff and Maya!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.            

Eucalyptus Grove-The Nguyen Family

Every once in a while, I stumble upon a new location in San Diego, that takes me by surprise.  This Eucalyptus Grove at the University of California, San Diego did just that.  This was the perfect hidden gem to provide a leafy, backdrop for the Nguyen family.  This sweet family couldn’t be more adorable in their complimentary fall style (clothing by Matilda Jane).  Thank you for the fun evening; swinging in hammocks, playing with eucalyptus branches, and frolicking around the grove.
