My good friend Monique asked if I would like to photograph her son Dominic’s
baptism. I hesitated at first because I don’t have the right flash equipment that I thought I would need to get enough light in the church. But I think the photos came out pretty good, Thanks to my new baby -50mm! Here are a few shots of his Godmother getting him dressed & baby Dominic during the ceremony. Dominic is one of the happiest babies I’ve ever met! He was so chill during the ceremony and was one of the only babies that didn’t cry when he was dipped in the water. Enjoy...
I also made these cute yellow fondant cross (vanilla & red velvet) cupcakes for his reception…

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.
