Maternity Outdoor Portraits - San Diego / Carlsbad

It was so wonderful meeting this sweet family, expecting baby number two in just a few short weeks! Their little girl was so adorable, and mommy coordinated outfits perfectly! We didn't know there would be such gorgeous golden flowers to match baby's dress!  Gown by Chicaboo and available in the studio for mommies to wear!

San Diego La Jolla - Windandsea Beach Family Photography

The weather has been so beautiful lately in San Diego!  When my past client contacted me from Northern California to let me know she was in town and wanted a session, I knew right where I was going to take them!  Gorgeous Windandsea Beach is the perfect setting for a maternity or family session at the beach.  Low tide is the best time to go, for the gorgeous exposed cliffs.  So beautiful! And it was SO fun for me to see these two older kids - I photographed them both as newborns!  They are now 6 and 4!  How fast time flys!  And it was very special for me to catch up with this beautiful family.  Thank you for visiting me in sunny San Diego!

North San Diego County Children's and Family Photography

I have known this little one since she was just a few weeks old. I feel SO blessed looking at these photos, because this family has come back to me every year for their family portraits. I love my clients so much, and I'm so thankful that they have faith in me to capture artwork for them that will be in their families forever. LOVE this darling girl and her parents! <3 So happy that mom picked up this gorgeous dress from Dollcake Oh-So-Girly in Australia for her session. The bunny has been with her since she was a baby, and its looking a little tattered 6 years later. I love that she wanted to incorporate it into the session!!! These are some of my favorite images ever of this age. Just so sweet. :)

Thank you G Family! You guys are really special to me.


Del Mar Newborn Portraits - Studio Images

I loved working with this family so much! I think I have an extra soft spot because I photographed Krish's birth in late December. And I loved that the family brought some heirloom items to include in their shoot as well. Welcome little guy - so sweet with his perfect little head of hair! I have to say that I am thankful every time I walk into my studio.  I'm thankful for my clients, and for being able to do what I love for work.  I love creating beautiful artwork that will go on the walls of the families that I work with.  It just feels good knowing that I can capture these snippets of time for parents.

3 Month Baby Portraits - Studio Photography Carlsbad, CA

I loved working with smiley little London for her session. She came to me at three months old, and I love that we were able to get a nice selection of both awake and sleepy portraits. I'm so happy for this beautiful family!  There is a gorgeous album on the way to the family soon!

La Jolla Beach - Maternity Portrait Photography

This is another favorite family of mine... adding baby number two! I shot mom and dad's engagement and wedding. And I shot Zoey's maternity, newborn and first year portraits. And now I am shooting their new baby boys maternity and newborn portraits! I love clients that come back year after year, and to see their families grow! I also love that mom wanted to have matching floral crowns for her and her daughter.  This is something that I offer as an add on to your session.  They are fresh flower crowns - so beautiful!

We're excited to shoot more beach maternity sessions in Southern California, including La Jolla and Windandsea Beach.

Lupines in Lake Tahoe

A little personal post... my family spends a lot of time at Lake Tahoe in the Sierras.  This is one of my favorite peaceful places in the world.  We've enjoyed some time there this summer exploring.  My sister-in-law stumbled on this gorgeous field of lupine flowers, and I could not resist taking some casual photos. 01 lupine field photography lake tahoe02 lupine field photography lake tahoe03 lupine field photography lake tahoe

Sweet little girl - First Birthday Portraits and Cake Smash

I cannot believe this little darling is turning ONE next month!  We did a few family portraits at a nearby park, and then headed into the studio for her first birthday "cake smash".  More pictures coming soon, but just a few shares for now.  So excited to be capturing her birthday party celebration as well.  Thank you for having me capture her first year! sacramento portrait family photographer sm
