baby piper... a lifestyle newborn session. San Diego Newborn Photographer

I love families that embrace a lifestyle newborn session, few props, less fuss, just a natural, organic, love and light filled session. this was taken in her parents beach house in mission beach. i couldnt have asked for better light, or a sweeter fun family! i shot Bill and Kelly's wedding 3 years ago, then little Axel's newborn session 21 months ago. Now baby Piper has joined this gorgeous family. congratulations!!

joie de vivre!

Melanie & Parker, a wedding story..... San Diego Wedding Photography

I was blessed to be the photographer for this gorgeous couple, Melanie and Parker, who were just married yesterday! They were married in the San Diego LDS Temple, on an unbelievably perfect, partly cloudy day. We took their bridal images  in the orange groves of Wine Country, Temecula, a few days prior, so we weren't rushed the day of.
     Here are a few sneak peek images of their bridals in the orange groves, morning at the temple, and details from their laid-back reception that night at her parents estate in Temecula.
