Delilah | Future High Schooler

As a gift for finishing middle school, Delilah’s aunt had her pictures taken.  She had never had professional pictures done before.  She was very quiet and reserved so I had her family waiting in the wings to bring out those smiles.  Her beautiful hair and gorgeous smile lit up the surroundings! Our time together was spent gathering up those smiles so I could share them with her family & you all!  xoxo

Sara & Jesse Awaiting Their Little Girl

Sara & Jesse have been married for 2 years and are now awaiting the birth of their first child.  I’m secretly hoping they choose to deliver at my hospital so I can maybe be their nurse!  We spent an evening together in May and we froze are butts off.  I felt so bad for Sara because it was so windy and cold, but she toughed it out better than I did.  I hopped around like a crazy person trying to keep warm.

Sara emitted a warmth and glow during her entire session.  She is a beautiful woman and looks AH-MAZING pregnant.  I loved when Jesse got in the shots with her.  They were naturals!  Congrats to you two.  I can’t wait to see your baby girl!

Finding Their Wedded Bliss | Taylor + Natassia

One of these days I will get REALLY, REALLY good at blogging.  Until then, I will blog on my “in between moments.” So horrible, I know!  Let’s get away from that though and focus on this awesome couple and their completely beautiful wedding at Hidden Oaks Retreat Center in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

I met Natassia through her stepmom.  I love my work connections!  My nursing career always leads me to my amazing photography clients!  I had worked with her stepmom for years so I was so excited to get the call to do their wedding.  Natassia, Taylor and I had met up a month before to do their engagement photos.  During that session, Taylor told me all about how he proposed to her.  He sent her on a scavenger hunt using GPS coordinates.  I thought that was sooooooo awesome!  When I arrived at the venue, I loved seeing important GPS coordinates around telling their love story.  I was solo this wedding, so I got to spend time with the bride and groom while they got ready. Then, THEN, they decided against a 1st look, but they chose to exchange letters beforehand.  It was such a special moment, but I felt like I was intruding just a little bit!!!

The ceremony was just as beautiful as the getting ready portion and the letter exchange.  Hidden Oaks is a gorgeous venue!

We did their wedding party portraits and couple portraits as the sun was setting on that beautiful November Friday evening.

Finally the party got to begin after all the lovey dovey posed stuff was out of the way!  Their reception fit their personalities perfectly!  Their first dance was choreographed.  They had taken dance lessons and all their guests gathered close with candles.  After the dance, DJ Alan Paul (Original member of NO DOUBT!!!!) had everyone blow out their candles and make a wish for the couple.  It was seriously so special to witness that!  We finished off the night with a couple portraits of the two of them with me outside looking in. I had such a good time with Taylor, Natassia and their families!  I even stayed after to help clean up. hehe

Congrats to the happy couple!
