Claremont Senior Session | Marissa

Some of you might remember Marissa who I photographed earlier this year for her senior cap and gown picture. Well, she's back! And I couldn't be more happy to share her fabulous-ness with you.

Marissa, It was an honor for me to be included in documenting this wonderful milestone in your life. Knowing you in this short amount of time has reminded me to celebrate life the way that you have. Wishing you much joy and happiness in the years to come my friend.

I love it when a client brings their own props to incorporate into the photo session. It creates images that are more of a personal reflection on who they are and what they're about.

Marissa is a talented musician, fabulous dancer, and avid reader. I like to think of her as a keeper of all things classic--movies, books, swing dancing, the list goes on.

Pride and Prejudice? Helloooo Mr. Darcy! I love that she owns a copy of this book. In hardcover. And yes, Mr. Darcy makes me swoon.

A Morning Walk

This morning I walked 2 miles. Uphill. If you know me, you know that I only walk to the mail box. On a good day. Oh, and that long walk at church on Sunday mornings when I have to park at the back of the parking lot! yeah, I'm THAT girl. So, this morning I'm asking myself...why am I doing this again?

Maybe it's because I was up for a good challenge...maybe it's the curiosity of the unknown. Maybe it's because I LOVE MY CLIENTS.

More on that story coming soon.

In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of the amazing Marissa and her senior session. Isn't she a picture of beauty from the inside out?

Easter Blessings

For me, Easter is the most beautiful day of the year. Rain or shine, we spring out of bed for Easter as we celebrate our faith, redemption, and being thankful for all things.

This year our day began at church as always. But instead of a traditional ham dinner with our extended family we decided to try something a little different. Sushi. All-you-can-eat sushi at a sweet little spot in Corona. The kids loved it. They actually eat sushi with chopstick training wheels! So, to add to our already spontaneous afternoon, we drove down the street where I talked the kids into a mini photo shoot.

It's days like these that remind me the importance to document my kids as much as possible. They are growing fast and will soon be taller than me. I want to freeze time and remember them just as they are, right now. Savannah - talented and quick to learn. Isaiah - curious and observant. And Bella - creative and entertaining. I love them all, they are my blessings.

Isaiah, Savannah, and Bella.

Happy Monday!
