I felt so honored that Marina chose me to photograph their maternity session after randomly coming across my blog. After 13 years of marriage, Marina & Issac were blessed with their first baby -which will also be the first granddaughter on both sides!!!! I'm guessing that this little princess is going to be pretty SPOILED ;) Its a MUST! We met in Claremont and immediately hit it off! I mean anyone who wears yellow has to be a FUN person -right! As we were panting for breath from hiking up the hill, we joked about Marina going into labor early -WELL at only 35 weeks pregnant she ended up going into labor the very next day! Autumn Ruby was born Wednesday morning - at 5 weeks early! Thank God that Mommy and baby are doing great! I am so glad that I was able to capture these last moments of you having your precious baby in your belly! Congratulations guys! Cant wait to see more photos of the new princess!!! :)
You guys are such a beautiful couple, there's no doubt that your baby is going to be adorable!!!
Say hello to their little furry baby! How cute is his matching tie!!!
Marina had cute ideas for her fall baby!
Love the gold "A" for Autumn Ruby!
Say hello to baby Autumn! Feel so special that they sent me this photo of her!

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.
