Earlier this week I had the pleasure to meet this adorable little family who is expecting their baby girl in October. Small world Tania and I went to the same high school! Tania & Jon are a super sweet couple and have a cool love story -they randomly met at Starbucks! How cool is that!?! Four years later they are married and have a gorgeous little boy Noah who is super stoked to be a big brother! This little guy had me hypnotized with his amazing blue eyes! I know that their daughter is going to be quite the beauty!
See I told you he's ADORABLE!!!
I feel very lucky to not only be able to do a job that I absolutely love (that doesn't even feel like work) but to be able to do it with friends makes it that much sweeter! I always love shooting weddings with my sweet friend Maria Longhi -and Marie and Derek's wedding was nothing short of perfection! It was held at the stunning Ponte Winery in Temecula, Ca. They are such an adorable stylish couple! I loved their use of navy stripes with their gorgeous vintage touches in their decorations! Great inspiration for fall weddings!
We welcomed the first baby girl from my immediate family in July -little Miss Avery Isabella! I couldn't be happier for my oldest brother Eric and his wife Sonya! She's perfect in every way -and so alert and only two weeks old!
Her mermaid outfit was created by my talented friend Arlene "Spoiled Rockin Custom Crochet". She also made the sweet lion outfit for my nephew HERE.

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
