Valerie's 50th birthday retreat | Ojai CA

I'm still swooning over this amazing birthday party, complete with friends, family, massage therapists, tarot card readers, henna tattoo artists, and a personal chef. This birthday retreat is what dreams are made of... Happy birthday Valerie! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture this once and lifetime milestone! 

Lynea + Greg | Harveston Lake Park

Lynea and Greg were first referred to me through Bryce's best friend Justin Houser. A couple minutes into meeting them I knew they were going to be such a fun couple to be around and as you can tell from their pictures they absolutely adore each other! These two chose Harveston Lake Park for their session. Fun fact: before Bryce and I were married he lived within walking distance to the beautiful park so I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to shoot there before and know the lay of the land. Anyways, we had a perfect evening to stroll around the park and capture some beautiful imagery. I hope you enjoy them! 

Galentines | Malibu Wedding Getaway

For this styled shoot, I teamed up with Weddings by SabrinaAlpha WolvesSibyl SophiaTami Bernard MakeupUrban PalateInk Topiary, and American Wood Importers to celebrate GALentines! 

As Leslie Knope of Parks and Rec explains, “It’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it. Ladies celebrating ladies! It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.  

So grab a friend and go celebrate or just send your best gals some love. Wishing you a happy Galentine's and Valentine's Day with your loved ones!

LA Engagement: Erin + Dan

Happy Engagement to these cooking cuties!! Dan and Erin started their engagement session in the kitchen where they love to cook a meal together. I love how these photos reflect them as a couple and their kitchen offered the perfect backdrop!

Next, we took their session from the cozy indoors, to a casual walk in the park. Sticking with that cozy winter theme in order to contrast their upcoming summer wedding and give them a balanced collection of images.

Can't wait for their wedding in May!! What special activities or props would you incorporate into your engagement session?

What a fun weekend in our new city! We had 5 families who we've never met before come get their pictures taken. A lot of families traveling in from San Diego. My husband Bryce and I are truly grateful! Merry Christmas, Families!
