my buddy {Redlands Child Photographer}

"That's my buddy Ethan" is what I heard yelled across the room as I got ready to blog this post. You see Ethan is in my son's kinder class and they have become fast friends. When mom asked me to capture some fun times with her kiddos I was more than excited. I mean really...look at these kids...they are to-die-for cute!!

Thanks for the fun kids (and Denise). You make me smile big!! :)

Just a peek from our session together. It was so hard to pick a few...I love them much.

Tina & Ruben {Tennessee Gardens Wedding Photographer}

Tina and Ruben were married at the beautiful Tennessee Gardens in Redlands. It's a beautiful little treasure tucked away in the city and perfect for Tina and Ruben's special day. Tina was a beauty and Ruben wasn't looking so bad himself! What a fun couple...a little humidity and threat of rain weren't gonna slow down this party!!! ;)

Tina and Ruben, thank you so much for letting us be part of your special day! You two are amazing and kind and we wish you all the love and happiness in the world.

Just a little glimpse at their beautiful day

Tina you are stunning!
The details were amazing!
A special thank you to the staff at Tennessee Gardens who did an amazing job. Michelle's Bakery for a beautiful and yummuy cake. Mark of DREAMHAVEN Studios for the videography and Rosa for all your beautiful details and being a jack of all trades! :)

Mitch & Stephanie {Oak Glen engagement photographer}

Mitch and Stephanie are getting married!

I sit here not quite sure what to type because their story is a great one and really I feel like there are no words to describe them.

I loved our time together and think I smiled the entire time. You just can't help but be happy when you are around these two!

They are the real deal...just good people. The kind you want to surround yourself with. I think I fell in love with them just a bit too much that day. :)

Mitch and Stephanie thank you for the fun and the honor of capturing your upcoming special day. I can't wait!

what to wear

I get asked all the time "what should we wear" and really there is no right answer for that. Bottom line is wear something that you feel comfortable in and is really a reflection of who your family is. Don't look back at the images and not recognized the people in the suits and dresses. :)

Be you. Be happy. Have fun.

No one says you have to all be matching with everything. Pick like colors and have fun! Show your own personality!

Pick a favorite color palette and play with it.
Want more of a Fall look?Maybe more of a traditional Holiday feel.

hurry, hurry....

Hurry and reserve your spot today for Holiday sessions!! Spots are filling up and I don't want you to be left behind!

Call or e-mail me today!!

sparkle &shine

So my lack of posts aren't from a shortage of things to share with you, I promise, but rather just a lack of time (and energy). Man I have been a busy gal!

I recently had the chance to do some head shots for a local business. They needed some images to use for an upcoming ad for the holiday season. I'm so glad they called! What a fun family to work with.

If you are in need of some beautiful gifts this season (or anytime)go see my friends at
Ozel Fine Jewelry. Let's just say that my hubby is lucky that I didn't have more time to spend there! :)

Thanks for the fun!!

Here are just a few of my favorites...
