Maternity sessions are some of my favorites and it was an absolute pleasure meeting Josh and Vanessa on the beach for a sunset session. Their infectious energy and love for one another really was a treat to watch and document. We ended up at sunset cliffs which created the perfect backdrop for these two to cuddle behind the sunset <333333
I absolutely loved shooting for these beautiful bohemian babes from lovestrength and VanDeVort. This was shot in San Diego, North County at an equestrian center (such a cute setting) in San Marcos/Vista area. It’s always a pleasure to apart of such a collaboration and you can see the lookbook currently on lovestrength’s website here! Models: Alex Bryn and Lili McGil

I shoot often in La Jolla, and this particular occasion was a special treat since Alyssa brought her guitar to the session. Both of my parents were musicians and I have a passion for it (even if I can’t sing or play!) and getting to shoot and listen to music was a double dose of pleasure, not to mention Alyssa is completely fun and awesome to be around!
Lindsey & Ryan came to San Diego to vacation with their beautiful family, and I suggested La Jolla Shores for their photo shoot bc I absolutely cannot get enough of that pier! It is stunning in person and translates so well in photo’s, the lighting on this particular day was really magical and completely added to the charm. Had a great time with this one!
La Jolla is filled with little hidden gems (like this location) and they are absolutely stunning to photograph. Parisa introduced me to this particular spot, and I am so grateful. It may not work for everyone since it is situated in between some condo’s, but it certainly worked well for some individual lifestyle portrait photography. I love the balloons in this shoot, they add a very whimsical touch and I always love anything that looks as if it was dreamed up!
I just adore the colors from this set, Itzel came down to San Diego from Utah with her boyfriend to celebrate her 20th birthday! What a fabulous year 20 is! This was her first professional photo shoot and I couldn’t be happier to take them at La Jolla Shores. I would not/could not stop talking about how awesome her red hair is! Way too much goodness <3
Madeline was originally set to do her senior portrait photo’s at Balboa Park, while Balboa had other festivities planned for Earth Day. Balboa and Earth Day are a fantastic way to enjoy the park, although it would not have made a nice setting for photo’s with all the extra peeps. So we decided to bring the session to a much more private Mission Trails and I’m so glad we did! The session came out beautifully and Madeline looks fantastic and completely at peace with the next phase in her life!
The Lovestrength lookbook is finally here!! I had so much fun shooting with these girls at one of my all time favorite spots and could not be happier to be part of such an uplifting, inspiring project. On their website the lovestrength girl is: ” confident in her own skin, and draws strength from this. Lovestrength’s vintage inspired, bohemian pieces, are a fun, eclectic mix, which embodies the free spirit within us all” These are only some of my favorites, you can check out the full lookbook @: www.lovestrength.com
Who doesn’t love flowers, sunshine and rompers? I know I’m a fan! This is Michelle, blogger at onevintagesoul and creative director and co-owner at lovestrength Did I mention I had the (very EXCITING) opportunity to shoot their lookbook that you see currently on their website AND we will be collaborating again next month! During a lovestrength lookbook creative meeting I took full advantage of the flower field behind Deborah’s house (owner of lovestrength) and shot Michelle looking pretty dreamy. I could not resist, those flowers are so perfect!
Bringing in her last year of her 20’s, here is Yahira and some of her besties frolicking in La Jolla. One of her friends even flew down from New York since they were all about to attend Coachella that weekend together. What a FUN way to celebrate and I wish I would have done something like this myself!! Loved how this session came out, fun in the sun times a million!!
