hello

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day. Today is the day we set aside to say thank you to the men and women who are serving, who have served and who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Today we stop and remember them, we honor them and love on them. If you ask me, we …

Beautiful Family {Yucaipa Photographer}

Scott & Heidi were married a few years ago and it was delightful day! Now they have a little girl and she is so cute. She had some complications when she was born, so this was the first time she met her aunts, uncles and cousins. They were all so happy to meet her and …

Elorriaga Family {Running Springs}

The Elorriaga family and I have been trying to set up an appointment for a long time now. And finally, we got to do their session. We did a few sessions in one… a family session, a senior session and an anniversary session. Whew, it was a lot, but it was so fun. We ran …

Slusser Family {Redlands Photography}

I met Joanna a few years ago when my girls started Girl Scouts. She has always been such a sweet person, very giving and always looking to help. In girl scouts I got to meet her little girl as well, but on this day, this was the first time I met her husband and two …

Neil & Kim {Wolf Creek Resort}

Kim found me online about 6 months before the wedding. They are from the Lakewood, Ca area and so we didn’t get a chance to meet before the big day. She said she was getting married in Big Bear at Wolf Creek Resort. I have heard of the location, but had no idea they did …

Teysko Family {Crestline Photographer}

How beautiful is this little girl?! I met Jon and Heather a while back when I did their maternity pictures. At that time, I learned they had lost a little baby before this pregnancy and of course it was a difficult time for them. Something like that would devastate anyone looking to start for a …

Salsbury Family {Running Spring}

I just love this family! They are our neighbors. We moved to this house 9 years ago and they welcomed us to the street. I have gotten to know them a little bit. I have watched the kids grow and graduate from high school and go off to college, it’s been so great to see …

Carlson Family {Lake Arrowhead}

I have the best job! Well, if you can really call it a job. Yes, I make a living, yes I put countless hours in, yes, I’m always “on call”, but I work from home and I truly LOVE what I do! Is that a job? Not to many people can say they LOVE their …

Mommy & Me {times 2}

Mommy and me sessions are so sweet! I have two little girls, but it’s so fun to see the bond between a little boy and his mama. There is just a love in his eyes that says all is right with the world as long as mommy is with me. Broden is not quite 2 …

Joe & Kara {Big Bear Wedding}

It was a beautiful day in Big Bear for Joe & Kara’s wedding. This was a small wedding, close friends and family only, it was perfect. I met Joe and Kara last year when we did their engagement pictures at Lake Gregory. I learned then that they were already married by the court-house and the …

John & Meagan {Pine Rose Wedding}

Let me start off by saying this wedding was warmed with love, so much love. The night before this beautiful day it snowed and on this day it was 32 degrees, windy and foggy. What kept the couple going and the family dancing was the love that was filling this area! As I’ve said before, …
