Jake & Kat – Engaged


So very excited to share these photos with you! This is one of my absolute favorite locations to shoot, along with one of my favorite couples. Kat and Jake are very dear friends and was honored to shoot their engagement pictures. Jake is a great musician and lead singer for the children’s Bear Hug Band, and Kat is a preschool teacher. They were the best of friends before Jake realized that he couldn’t live without her.. and wanted to be more than just friends. Of course Kat had felt the same way for the longest time, and well.. the rest is history. Their love for each other is evident and shines through in each of these images.They are absolutely perfect for each other: they both love country music (somewhat of a rarity here in SoCal), line dancing, have a special love for children, are sweet old souls, and most importantly have an unwavering love for Jesus. I cant wait to be in AND shoot your wedding in September! Love you both!

Phoenix – 1st Birthday

Phoenix Mae and her family hold a special place in my heart. Her mother is one of my dearest friends and I have had the pleasure of knowing them since Nevaeh (now 7) was about 2yrs. A few years ago they moved up to Carpinteria to be a part of Reality Carpinteria, and have since moved to Boston to plant a new church, Reality Boston. Just before they left, I was able to spend a few days in Carpinteria and celebrate Pheonix Mae’s 1st Birthday! Here are a few shots from a quick session we did at the end of the day. To say that she enjoyed her cake is definitely an understatement.
