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. […]

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 […]
