One of the things I love about my job is having the privilege to be a part of new, great and exciting journeys. For this group of people, their journey has been in the works for a while. This Easter they are launching their official church plant in Santa Ana. Uncommon Church. They seek to be different in their approach to reach and love people with the Love of Christ.
Oh to be young and in love. This sweet couple is on the journey to become one. I am looking forward to their special day.
The love and joy of this woman who is now a Mrs. is so infectious. She has such a sweet kindness that makes people feel so loved and welcomed. Coming together to celebrate her as a soon to be bride was such an honor and joy.
As a parent on Little’s ones it is so special to be able to celebrate the different holidays and capture these memorable moments. I look forward to this year’s Valentines mini sessions with new little ones.

One of the things I love about my business is how special simple moments can be. Even the day to day moments are moments we don’t want to forget. My kids are on break right now so it is just a fun time to just hang out and take some fun shots. There is beauty in the peacefulness of the quiet house with the gentle Christmas lights from the tree. There is beauty in the first time riding a big girl bike and the beauty of an amazing sunset where the colors change so quickly and dramatically. There is so much beauty in the ordinary.
This was such a great family to work with. The kids got along great and had so much fun. The highlight for me personally was connecting with mom and dad and they shared that they would be celebrating the 19 year anniversary this year. That is so so incredibly special in my opinion. As you can see the love they have for each other has not faded, and they give all the Glory to Jesus being the center of their marriage.
Here are a few shots from our time together.
We had such a wonderful night at our women’s “Bountiful” Thanksgiving Soup & Pie Social. It is so good to come together as the church body with hearts of praise and thanksgiving in our hearts. Thank you everyone who put in the work to put on this beautiful and welcoming event.
I had the honor of doing my sweet friend’s family portraits at the beach hat she frequents often with her amazing kids.
We also decided to do something a little different this year, we hosted a few days of mini sessions at the amazing Peltzer Pines Christmas tree farm, let me say they are amazing to work with and their trees are beautiful and well maintained with pride. Anyway…. let me tell you how fun it was to do these sessions! The kids enjoyed being able to run around a bit in the trees and smell the sweet pine and get us ready for the holiday season that is quickly approaching.
Over the summer we were busy trying to give back to the community. One of the events we photographed was a golf tournament fundraiser for Ends of the Earth Ministries. They seek to reach the uttermost parts of the world with the hope of the gospel as well as help meet the physical needs of these desperate and reached Villages of the Sudan.
