I had the pleasure of capturing Dustin and Tarran’s wedding day, and now I have the honor of capturing their family milestones. I always enjoy a lakeside session and their sweet little family did not disappoint. When shooting a family session, I try to make it not about those “posey” photos (although we do get those as well) but more so about those in-between moments that make you FEEL something when you see it.
I think were able to accomplish that with the Chamber’s photos. I want them to be able to look back at these images and fall right back into the moments of when sweet Hudson played and splashed in the lake.
This is the Silva family. They are near and dear to my heart. I started babysitting for them about 5 years ago and immediately fell in love with their hospitality, their love for others and their beautiful personalities. I have been so blessed to watch these beautiful girls grow up and become amazing little ladies. They are all so kind and full of love. It is always an honor to photograph them each year.
What was life like for you the first week you brought home your newborn? It’s so full of love, excitement, fatigue. There are so many emotions that fill your soul when you bring home your newborn that sometimes it feels like a blur. Take the time to pause, breathe it in and capture these moments before they pass.
Getting to capture these moments for families means the world to me. Rikki reached out to me a few years ago to do a styled shoot in Joshua Tree for her wedding rental company. I had no idea we were actually related (she married my second cousin). Over the years, I have been blessed to watch her oldest grow and now I get to watch her little one grow as well.
Welcome to the world Landrey Jean. You are so loved by all those around you.

It all started when I used every penny of my Christmas and birthday money to buy myself a bright orange underwater point and shoot Olympus camera.
At 12 years old, I didn't quite know how or why I was so drawn to it, but I knew I was never going to put down my camera. And here I am, over 15 years (and some major camera upgrades later) and I still haven't put my camera down.
