Last Minute Engagement Session in Idyllwild, California

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday season! Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays is behind us, it’s time to get back to creating.

Mike and Misty got engaged over the Christmas holiday, and since they were in town visiting family they were able to book a last minute session just hours before flying back to the east coast. We went up to Idyllwild and shot around for a while; nothing about this session was posed, We just spent the time hanging out while these two love birds were gaga-eyed for each other – getting engaged can kinda do that to you.

A big thanks to the couple for the quality hang, it’s days like these that make this job feel like a vacation rather than work!

Who’s next?!

Monochrome Moods with the Smoots

I had the pleasure of shooting for the Smoot family a short while ago. They gave me carte blanche to go ahead and shoot the way I wanted, which was a breath of fresh air from the traditional posing and smiling I have to do for most families. Candid, real moments are what defines a family, not to say that smiling for the camera is a facade, but documenting and telling the story of your family is what I truly love to do!

A huge THANK YOU to Miranda for booking this shoot with me, your family is amazing and a joy to spend time with!

It's Been A While! And A Sneak Peak...

Nice to be back blogging! Apologies for going M.I.A, but I'll be posting excerpts from my shoots and ramblings a bit more often from now on! 

Here's a little shoot with Tatum C., a throwback 70's fashion editorial that was a lot of fun to put together! This is part of a bigger ongoing project dubbed "That 70's Shoot" that features throwback fashion and locations! More on that to come!
