Jeremy and Mariah

Surprise I Do in Brentwood, CA

When Mariah reached out to me about her surprise wedding I was extremely intrigued. Mariah and Jeremy planned a surprise wedding on a summer day in June. It was held in their backyard with their closest friends and family. Guest believed that the two planned to elope and this was a party to celebrate. Little did they know, the two would be holding a small intimate ceremony in their backyard. It was gorgeous and heartfelt. I spent quite a bit of time with the girls as they got ready and the ceremony followed . We went down to a local park to photograph the couple alone and they celebrated with their friends and family back at their home!

Mike and Ericka

Discovery Bay, CA

Mike and Ericka held an intimate wedding ceremony at their home in Discovery Bay. They got married on their floating deck right in their backyard. This ceremony included their children and even their pup, Ginger. The reception followed at the Discovery Bay Yacht Club with their closest friends and family. Blogging this session has brought me such joy by seeing how much love Mike and Ericka have for each other.

The Moreno Family

Creekside Park | Brentwood, CA


I was thrilled to find out Stacey and Guillermo were visiting for thanksgiving before they planned to get married at SF City Hall in December. We set up a family and engagement mini session at this beautiful gem of a location! Who knew so much beauty could be at a local park? The fall leaves and colors are so beautiful! Stacey, Guillermo, and their daughter were a joy to get to know. I will be sharing their wedding very soon too!

The Cofer Family

Family of Five | Brentwood, CA


The cover family have been clients of mine from the very beginning! I did their annual family photos back in 2015! The shoot was a blast but it turned out that Angela's husband had actually locked their keys in their car! As we waited after the shoot, I was able to get to know this family in a way that I normally don't get to due to time. They are a funny, loving, and kind family that I will never forget! I was also able to capture Aaliyah's 1st birthday photos in 2016 so I was absolutely THRILLED when I was contacted by Angela again to do their 2017 annual family photos. I always look forward to seeing families grow and this family is no exception! Here are some of the highlights from their 2017 fall family session.

Freed Family of 5

The Freed family is growing by 1! I have been photographing super sweet moments of the Freed family for about a year and a half since Charlotte's first birthday. Maddy and Charlotte are two of  my favorite little girls. They are so natural in front of the camera and I'm able to capture moments that their parents will cherish for a lifetime. As time passes, they get even more comfortable with me and our sessions get more and more fun. They are hilarious, loving little girls and you can see their excitement for their brother in these photos. Out of over 70 gorgeous images, it was quite difficult to narrow it down for this blog post but I chose some of my very favorites! I am so thrilled to see this beautiful family growing and can't wait to photograph more sweet moments when he is born!
