legacy.

Did you know that right now you are currently in the middle of a story that will be passed down to your children and your children’s children? Think about where you are at this moment and all the moments that led up to this one. That one moment in third grade when you confessed to your crush.

new.

There’s a lot of talk right now about the idea of new. Freshening up your life by decluttering not just your old sock drawer but also your mental file cabinets and dusty cobwebs in the back of that mind of yours. I’ve been hearing a lot about that new Netflix show, Tidying Up, and I have to admit I haven’t started it yet, but…

JOY.

That’s the word that comes to mind as I approach the fall season, the end of Daylight Saving Time, and cozy cuddles with Michael while we binge watch Chuck on Hulu. I think the average person—especially in California—just adores long…

This Morgan Hill portrait session changed my life.

On Saturday June 10, 2017, a group of girls showed up to Coyote Creek Trail in Morgan Hill for a staff portrait session for Cera Singley Events (one of the best wedding planners in Morgan Hill and San Jose). I only knew Cera and only for a short while at that point and had never met any of the other girls before. Nervous was my word that afternoon for sure. But my nerves were put at ease almost immediately because each one of these girls ended playing big roles in my life. And it started that night…

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…

When I was still getting acquainted with my new church and getting comfortable working in the office, I often would hear the name Dos Santos thrown around here and there. I knew there was a Tiffany Dos Santos and that she had a little boy named André. I remember...

There's a sweet spot on this trail I've never heard of and almost couldn't find that made for a perfect location for this engagement session. Coyote Creek Trail is a 15-mile path that goes all the way to San Jose. And along...
