Cake Smash | San Diego Baby Photographer

One year old baby photos are always a big deal. It is the finality of the baby’s first year and the beginning of toddlerhood. It is fun to celebrate by smashing a cake and making a big mess and serves as a preview of what is to come. To have a dog that wants to participate is just icing on that cake.

A smiling horse | rancho santa fe child photographer

Who does not love a smiling horse? I could not believe the teeth as I was editing… perfection. The Salas family was one of my first clients after I left the classroom and took on my San Diego children’s photography career. We have been together ever since and it is with a heavy heart that we must say some temporary goodbyes. They are off to DC where adventure awaits them. You will missed!

In home family session | San Diego Lifestyle Photographer

I met this beautiful momma in the preschool line. She had 4 kids and a sense of humor. What else do you need? We quickly began carpooling and the rest is history. I love everything about her home. Every detail that she puts into this home is perfection. It was fun to see the swelling come to life with the whole family inside. I think we captured it perfectly. A huge canvas now hangs when you enter of the girl flying across the bed and an album sits on the coffee table. We have forever captured this moment in time.
