Engagement sessions are always so sweet to photograph, but they’re extra sweet when they’re friends of your family.

Bakersfield has been absolutely breathtaking recently. This rain has brought out the shapes and full detail in the mountains surrounding our valley, color form the landscapes, little flowers in the fields, and clear skies.
