Page family maternity session

Do I use the word “magic” too much?  I feel like I use it too much.  But for the life of me it’s just the best word I can think of sometimes.

This stunning Momma wanted somewhere unique for her family maternity session and I will forever be grateful that she did.  This location, on this night, it was an absolute dream.  Nothing could have gone better.  The 2.5 hour drive to the location was nothing but pleasant with the company of my very good friend Hydee.  And arriving to find this family that I adore, in a place as stunning as this, shooting with no one around and nothing but beauty in all directions, it was just as fulfilling as my work gets.

Thank you Page family for being absolutely wonderful.  Thank you baby girl for waiting until we got this session done before you made your grand entrance into the world.  Thank you Hydee for being the best kind of friend there is.  Thank you life for being so kind this day.

Vancura Family – SoCal style

This family… man, where do I begin?  I had never met Erin and fam but boy when I did, it took about 3 seconds to fall in love.  Sweet Lex had made necklaces for my two girls, cookies for me, and didn’t stop talking to me and holding my hand the whole session.  And that’s all it takes folks, thats all it takes to win my heart.

We started their session in the GORGEOUS newly remodeled home in Southern California.  I loved being in their space, seeing their dynamic and feeling what it felt like to be in that home with this fun filled, wild, loved soaked family.  After we wrapped in home, we headed a whole 2 minutes down to road to the beach.  And magic of all magic took place.  Little K was having so much fun that she literally dove in the ocean fully clothed, and emerged with the biggest smile.  We all laughed, we all got wet, and we all made a memory that now is preserved forever.

Thank you thank you Vancura family.

Laguna Beach magic

Hello friends

I am so so very happy to show you this session.  It’s been such a light and joy for me to work on and I couldn’t be happier with the result.  We don’t see landscape like this in Utah and it definitely has my heart.  The color, the sun, the sand.  It’s heaven.  And this family… these girls… they are pure sunshine.

I’ll be in California again August 18-22, shooting between Santa Monica and Laguna Beach.  I have time for 2 mini sessions but the rest are booked.  Email me at for more information.


Hubbard family

The perfect evening in the perfect location with the perfect family and perfect light.


Patten family in home

You know the Pattens by now… ha!

They are dear friends and Erica pretty much lets me to whatever I want so I always love what we create working together.  I use the word “working” lightly here too.  Because this session in particular, was much more a “come hang out with us and play and eat cookies and oh take some pictures maybe?”.  It was fantastic.  I LOVE her little tribe of girls and the crazy love and lets face it, amazing style in their home.   Their home is filled with joy, and laughing and tears and whining and fights and more laughing and more joy and it’s the kind of home and the kind of people that really fill you up, really make you want to live better, live with more fun and more joy and less worry.   There was little to no directing here, and that’s really how I like it.  I wanted it to be real.  What is it really like in their home?  It’s like this… really.
