There must be something in the valley air because so many engagements have been happening! I love it. Dani and Easton go to my church here in Bakersfield, and after church one Sunday, Easton approached me about photographing his proposal to Dani. There’s nothing quite as sweet as the ear to ear grin of a […]

Going to a client’s home is always super special for me, but going to a client’s home in another state?? Insane. This client also happens to be one of my wonderful brothers and his wife, so I’d go any distance for that. If you were here from my early days of business, you’ll remember Cindy […]

The Bakersfield hills were truly alive as Julie Andrews would sing. Kate and Christopher are such good friends of mine, and it would be really easy to sit behind my computer and gush over them endlessly. So I’ll try not to do that. This time of year, Bakersfield is green, lush, and clear. You can […]

From the abundance of flowers to the intricacies of the Immaculata Church, I was in love. While I mostly shoot in Bakersfield, CA, going […]

There’s nothing quite like a sunset of many colors. These downtown Bakersfield senior pictures had colorful skies and smiles to last forever. I’ve known Hannah for a pretty long time. So long, in fact, that I can’t even remember when I met her. I just know we were both youth. I might’ve been in junior […]

Hart Park is always a sweet place for photos here in Bakersfield. While it was pretty chilly outside this particular day, the Grissom family braved the air for the portraits. It was a joy to see the dynamic of their family play out in their interactions with one another. Laurie is truly the rock of […]

It was such a joy to be able to photograph the Schoneveld family for a second time. The last time I took photos for them, I had just started my business. It was definitely exciting getting to see them all again! With everyone in town for Thanksgiving, the cool fall air, and a beautiful home, […]

Hart Park in Bakersfield, California is my favorite place to take my clients locally. In the fall, this is especially true. When you scroll through this blog, I know you’ll see why! The soft colors of the trees and the unbeatable sunset is one of the many reasons I adore the park at this time […]

I had so much fun taking photos for Gaby and Luke’s Christmas cards this year. We spent the afternoon in downtown Bakersfield at one of my favorite buildings. For those who don’t know, Luke is one of my brothers. I love all my brothers and sisters-in-law dearly, but Gaby holds a special place in my […]

Summerland photos in the fall, you say? Sounds perfect! I had never been to Summerland before, but my first trip was absolutely breathtaking. The cliffs and the ocean were a beautiful background for the Trovato’s family photos. Kim is a dear friend of my mom’s, and she’s been a huge source of encouragement to me. […]
