connected.

It was a routine game night at my friends’ home in Aromas, CA. Their little studio space was the headquarters for friendly competitions of Clue, What Do You Meme?, Phase 10 and Monopoly (every possible version of it, too). Rochelle and I stepped outside for a moment to feed the cats and say hi to her mom really quick. What was intended to be…

pure.

This word seems to carry so much weight with it. It’s so simple and straightforward, yet it’s also heavily complex and intricate. Some hear a calling. Some hear judgment. Let’s set aside our own baggage for a moment. Put down your…

dress. it. up.

Could you have guessed this sweet Morgan Hill family portrait session features three country folk who work outside on their farm every day? Breanna + Andy’s family portrait session called for a couple hours of heels instead of cowboy boots, long and luscious locks instead of messy buns, and button up shirts instead of ranch flannels. This young family is…

I was just hanging out with this little goofball, Evynn Rae, the other day and she’s starting to say my name! That’s a huge win in my book. Life goals: all the kids will say my name and love me forever. A simple dream, I know…

Cera handed baby Mack over to me. He fit right into my arms at 6 months old and joyfully smiled up at me. Not much brought this little boy down. It was 7am, the sun was just barely coming up over the Santa Cruz Mountains and our small group was…

The other night I was sitting on my couch in my little Morgan Hill apartment (you know, doing the adult thing and watching Netflix all night) and I hopped on the interwebs and just started looking at pictures of puppies. It didn't take long for me to just happen to accidentally search for puppies for sale on Craigslist. Before I knew it, I fell in love with…

How little is the littlest human you've ever held? For me, Aaron Miranda, the youngest in this family of six (almost all boys!) was only a couple hours old when my parents and I went to visit his wonderful parents in the hospital. When my favorite Angela (his mom and I share…

My little friend, Ellie, spotted me from across the courtyard one Sunday morning and just about lost it. She made eye contact and made a b-line for me. She let out a big ole scream, "AAAAANGELAAAAA!!!" and slammed into…

A few months ago, I decided that photography would some day be my full time income. I absolutely LOVE to take photos of couples in love and families celebrating the stage of life they're in. When I see a photo with such genuine and authentic smiles, I just can't help but feel so so so much joy. Family photography and wedding photography is my dream.

Then I took a quick break and watched Tangled to get into the "I've got a dream" mood :)

I put out a call on the Facebooks and…
