I absolutely ADORE couples sessions! This one was particularly fantastic because it featured Brianna, a friend from high school who I hadn’t seen in 11 years! Wow! AND– I finally got to do an engagement shoot in the Gaslamp. The colors and textures are amazing. I’m so glad the rain cleared just in time for me to capture this super cute couple.
Thank you, Brianna and Kevin, for sharing your day with me. It’s always so nice to meet couples who are genuinely in love. I hope you had just as much fun as I did.
Here’s a little sample of what’s to come

Just a warning– this might be the cutest little girl you’ve ever seen. Look at those curls and big brown eyes! Atiana is such a little angel! Like most kids this age, she wanted to play and explore instead of have her picture taken. That’s always expected with toddlers. But I sure had a great time living in her world at the park with mom and grandma. Atiana tried to join another kid’s birthday party at one point and loved the music mommy played for her from her cell phone. The cutest part of our session together was when she attempted to clean the park by throwing leaves into the trash can– one by one. What a good girl!
I know mom and grandma were very excited for this sneak peek. I hope you enjoy it!

Today the rain finally let up and I met with Jack and his family for part two of his session. He wasn’t feeling too well so keep and eye out for part three next week!
I can’t get over this boy’s eyes! So beautiful!

I intended to blog about this year’s Air Show a couple of weeks ago, but it’s been so hectic around my house that I’m just getting to it now. So, here it is
My mom used to take me to the Miramar Air Show when I was a kid, back when the air station belonged to the Navy (think “Top Gun”). It was a family tradition, although most of the time it was just my mom and I. My dad was usually working and my brother preferred to sleep in rather than look at military aircraft and watch the Blue Angels. They missed out on a lot of good memories. It was something I waited for every year. My mom instilled in me a love of all things military and patriotic. Is it any wonder I ended up with a U.S. Marine?
Unfortunately, my relationship with my mother isn’t what it used to be, but I wanted to continue the same family tradition with my son. Last year I was just days away from giving birth, so I missed the show. But this year it just so happened my mother-in-law was in town visiting the same weekend. Of course we headed out to Miramar to take in the sights– and heat. It is always SO hot on that tarmac! But it is ALWAYS worth it
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day. I still get goosebumps when I see the jets flying over the 15 freeway and I’ll cherish these photos for a lifetime. I can’t wait until I get to show my son these one day. I hope they’ll refresh his childhood memories like they do mine.
