7. Jeremy and I name all of our plants out of respect and they are called Ching Chong, Jerome Jr., Sally, Vera, Money, and baby boo….
8. I feel that my greatest gift in this life is my husband, and sometimes I can’t believe he still loves me after 8 years of Life Threatening PMS!!!!

    We want to live in Enc Ranch too! We actually looked at the houses last week and found “our street”! If you use Firefox for your internet, there is an option for an automatic spell checker! It will underline all the misspelled words in red for you!! Boudior sessions… funny you say that! I was thinking of this (tasteful of course) for S for Valentines day!!!! What if you go to houses for this?! And babies, you need to call me!!!ReplyCancel

    If you do end up doing Boudior sessions, I’ll be first in line, or maybe second behind Christina :) ReplyCancel

Some Inspiration for your weekend…

I was given a beautiful plaque, with a powerful message, from a friend when I was 17 and making the biggest move of my life. I was leaving Ohio where I grew up, and was heading down to Daytona Beach, FL, to start my new life. Unfortunately, I didn’t really “get” the message from this plaque, until years later. It’s always so interesting how things are presented to us in the same light our entire lives, and then one day we see it differently. The only thing that has changed is our perception. I try and keep this in mind when I see that someone has a completely different way of looking at things as I do. So often I’ll think “What the hell are they thinking?!” Then I’ll remember a time I believed in things so differently than I do today.

…and to think I am only 28. Imagine the shift in perception when I am 38, 48, or 58?! Wow.

And in case you were wondering, here is the message I was given 11 years ago:)It still hangs in my home after all these years, however the message is continually shifting…

When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, Then it becomes less and less important, whether I am afraid.

Baby Jack. Teasers.

I photographed Cristina and John’s wedding way back in 2006 ( pre blogging days:)I was so excited when I received a call from Cristina a few weeks ago asking if I would like to do some photos of their son Jack! It is always exciting when my clients come back and ask me to take photos of their kids. Once you see them together, it’s hard to imagine the days before the came into the world.

Jack was super cute and has so much personality…not to mention the most amazing blue angel eyes.

Enjoy some super cuteness from Baby Jack…

Jack’s greeting to my camera…

I love this dresser! I used to have one this color, until I married Jeremy and he made me get rid of it.

Heading to the Park.


“UGH! Are you almost done taking my picture?!”

Final and favorite shot of the day. Jack was really excited for snack time :)…aren’t we all…

Regina + Derek. Engagement Session. Part II

I met Regina and Derek a few months ago at a local Wine Bar in Encinitas. I knew after 5 mins that I wanted to work with this couple! They are so sweet, fun and authentic. For their engagement session they had the fabulous idea of bringing their beach cruisers to the beach for some Fun! I LOVE when clients bring themselves and their hobbies into their photo sessions!

Enjoy some more of their photos…
