Jen & Sean are married! 9.14.13 {San Diego Wedding Photographer}

This is a special sneak peek for my friends Jen and Sean.  I haven’t been posting any sneak peeks for a while now, because I thought I would be updating my website and blog this year.  So I was going to save all of the new posts for after it was revamped.  It’s proven to be quite busy for me this year though, so the updates are on hold for now!  However, this is a special wedding for me.  So I have to share!

Jen is a friend from – oh my gosh – junior high school?  We go way back!  Jen and Sean met in high school when they both worked at Taco Bell.  In one of the speeches it was even mentioned that Sean had moved her (or had her moved) to cashier because “she was hot”. Sparks were flying back then even!  LOL  They became good friends and then finished high school going their separate ways.

A couple years ago we had a high school reunion in Vegas where I caught up with Jen, and Sean “happened to be there” (keep in mind that Sean was from our rival school – he SO crashed our reunion ;) )   They were able to rekindle those sparks, and Sean finally decided to pursue the hot girl!  Ever since, they’ve been together and if you are a friend of either of them on Facebook you can see how much they enjoy each other and how much their love for each other has developed.

When Jen asked if I could photograph their wedding I was over the moon! A private orchard in our hometown, gorgeous and fun couple, with Jen’s stylish eye? Yes, please!

As expected, it was GORGEOUS!  I’ll save details about the wedding for later, but for now . . . here are a few image that I absolutely love.  I love the way Sean looked at Jennifer even though I could tell she was concentrating on being in front of the camera.  I loved the huge smiles on their faces coming down the aisle after they were pronounced man and wife.  I loved the orchard and the Camarillo mountains in the background . . .  I hope you love these as much as I do!

Enjoy!

Jones Sisters | San Diego Family Photography

It was such a delight to photograph these 3 sisters!  The eldest, Lindsey, was a wonderful big sister and took great pride in watching over her younger siblings and helping out with the session.  I didn’t recognize her, but it turns out that I had photographed her before at the SEES father daughter dance!  Middle sister, Charlotte, was a riot!  She was playful and so very energetic! We finally got her to sit still by having her count to 10 and then she was off again!  I was able to capture a ton of crazy expressions from her and loved her great big smile!  Baby sister, McKenna, was just happy to be! She too had big smiles and occasionally a tasty hand in mouth. McKenna is still learning to sit upright, so she would fall over slowly as she was watching me … I love those leaning tower of baby poses!  ;)

2-yr Old On the Go {California Children’s Photographer}

Photographing this California family was a blast!This little monkey just turned 2 years old, no terrible two’s in sight, but she was quite the ball of energy…constantly on the go! It was absolutely perfect that we were at a playground where she could swing and slide to hear heart’s content!

The outfits were fantastic coordination on mom’s part with tiny bits of electric green on everyone! Can you find everyone’s bit of green?

 

This little one is definitely a daddy’s girl, but you can see how much of a mommy’s girl she is too! So much love and joy came through in our time together, I was so glad to capture this milestone in their lives! Happy Birthday, Lyla monkey!

Free Ticket to the Gun Show! {Fitness Photos San Diego}

I loved trying to capture the drama of a body in motion for this incredible fitness shoot. Jason asked me to conceptualize how to show him off at his peak of fitness before one of his bodybuilding shows (Team Iron and Team World Nutrition are both blessed to call him a team member). I was honored to work with one of the country’s finest as we made our way around the gym that is his second home on Camp Pendleton. His kind personality only made the day better, and I learned a little bit about his world of nutrition and fitness. Turns out this young man doesn’t just compete, he loves to help motivate others on his blog www.strictlymotivated.com. He’s a little more than a personal trainer – he’s a nutritional expert and motivational light all wrapped into one. Check out his blog!

Introducing the Little Lady Jacklin {Newborn Portraits San Diego}

It doesn’t get much better than having a job that involves traveling to Big Bear and spending the day hiking! The Jacklins wanted to capture the majesty of the lake in their maternity photos, and mom-to-be hiked all over with only one month to go before the baby arrived!! It may have been more of a journey than she expected, but the setting was a perfect backdrop for this couple’s style.

Not having a name quite yet during our session, baby girl-to-be was fondly called Lady Jacklin, which just makes me smile! I finally got to meet little Elisa Ann, who arrived fashionably late, but I’m sure you would agree that she was worth waiting for!  Shot after beautiful shot, she was an absolute peach at her first photo session.  Marie emailed me shortly after the session and said, “Lord’s hand was in that photo session as she has been quite fussy since and she was absolutely perfect then!!”
