Ok you probably know by now that I have OCD when it comes to changing up my website and logo! Just when i think i have the right one that represents who i am... I want to change it! I dont know if i just get bored easily or if I’m constantly changing who i am lol! I'd like to think of it as growing! I’ve never really had a favorite color, movie, music or anything for that matter… I love too many to just pick one! I consider myself pretty open minded so Im constantly finding new things that I like! For example I used to say I like all types of music except for country and wat do ya know now I love country!!! Im still not a fan of a “BBQ stain on my white tshirt” but there are other types of country songs that have great stories!!! And to add the cherry on top I am probably the most indecisiveness person you’ve ever met!! That was definitely something that put a little damper on my relationship when Jack and I first started dating! He was pretty indecisive too so we were like those vultures from the jungle book when it came to making plans!!! “So wat do you want to do?” “I don’t know what do you want to do?” and so on…! We both had to make some changes to get out of that little funk!
I figure Ill keep growing as a photographer and I’ll find my style and eventually invest in some professional branding! But until then you will see some random designs up in here :) So here it is my new logo… for now! Im so loving this mustardy yellow color this season!
As if this post wasnt long enough I thought that i'd add some photos that my tia Diane took of me & my lil man hanging out! Its soo important to fit in some play time with our little ones!
My tia has been into photography since lil Jack was a baby so It’s been really fun to have someone in the family who enjoys photography as much as i do! Now I can talk photography lingo with someone who knows what the heck I’m talking about! When I start mentioning aperture and shutter speeds to Jack, he looks at me like I’m speaking a foreign language! But its cute because he tries to follow along.
Have a great safe weekend guys! Enjoy your mamas!!! I’m finally getting to shoot a maternity session for my “Love Story Contest winners” from here! I’m so excited!!! Peace out Yall!!!
Doesnt everyone make this weird monkey mouth when their shooting!
I love this lil turkey butt sooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!

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.
