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. […]

There’s nothing quite like scheduling a session only to wake up that morning to find rain on the forecast at the scheduled time. It doesn’t happen often in Bakersfield, and while I love the rain, it’s always so inconvenient. I was so thankful the Petersons were flexible to move the session up a bit. It […]

My last blog post was all about the Brock family as they had their family photos taken in San Simeon this year. While we were there, I also took senior pictures for their oldest daughter, Sydney. At the conclusion of the family photos, we hiked up the mountain for Sydney’s pictures (after a few beach […]

The sun setting over the coast of San Simeon has to be one of my new favorite things in life. Between the cliffs, the ocean shore, the waves, and the sun rays, I was obsessed. There truly was no better place to take the Brock’s family photos this year. Their family has been visiting San […]

Ahhh!!! Ellie is a SENIOR. I’ve known the Prince family for as far back as my memory goes. Their family has meant so much to me over the years especially considering Andy Prince, Ellie’s dad, was my pastor for many years. To say I was excited for Ellie’s senior pictures doesn’t even begin to state […]

Ah, the first session of fall! In Bakersfield, even when fall is here, it doesn’t guarantee cold weather quite yet. To beat the heat while still seeking those dreamy sun rays, Audrey and Juan opted for a sunrise shoot for their engagement photos. In the cool of the morning, alone in Hart Park, we enjoyed […]

Carrick’s adoption at Bakersfield’s Juvenile Justice Center was a shoot I’ll never forget. The Hepp family have been going to my church, Crossway Baptist, and I knew Carrick when we all called him “baby” in the church nursery. This was before they had the adoption set and name picked out, of course. Although he didn’t […]

Glitz and glamour have nothing on Marissa and Mason’s luxury Kern County Museum wedding. From the Badgley Mischka heels (my fav!) to the sparkler exit, they had every detail perfectly in place. It really is the details that make a wedding special. On April 23rd, I got to witness vows being said, kisses being shared, […]

While photographing couples is what I primarily photograph, senior sessions are actually some of my favorites to shoot! Senior girls, in particular, are always SO MUCH FUN. They’re full of energy, beauty, and they’re some of the most excited clients I get to work with. We celebrated Taya’s graduation in downtown Bakersfield during sunset. With […]
