Born not from our flesh, but born in our hearts. You were longed for and wanted and loved from the start! Great things are worth waiting for, and I am so overjoyed for this sweet families new blessing! Jillian, soon to be mama of two, contacted us for this surprise announcement shoot, and let me tell you it was an awesome surprise for us too. Remembering the journey to Kensie's adoption ( the little cutie holding the sign), and me (christina) being adopted myself, i was happy for Jillian yet feeling her stress. Adoption is not easy, but it is so worth it!
What a beautiful day for a proposal in gorgeous Temecula Valley Wine Country. Brian had planned out the most perfect wine tasting at Avensole Winery in Temecula, CA with a surprise ending. It couldn't have gone anymore perfect, when he asked the love of his life to be his forever. SURPRISE! SHE SAID YES!
One of our favorite things about our job is being invited back, to capture another memory for a sweet family. Watching Ana & Mike grow as a couple has been a complete joy! From our first family session with them in Julian, CA to the big day in Vista, CA, the love has had no shortage. They radiate smiles and laughs all throughout their sessions and you just can't help but walk away feeling so blessed!
While everyone was raving about the California Poppy super bloom, we were raving about this couples blooming love! "Let love bloom" was our inspiration for this session in Lake Elsinore, CA and i feel like we couldn't have captured that any better!

They may not have gotten a hole in one, but they definitley won when they got each other! What a blast it was walking around the course with this family, capturing their fun, loving spirit! Mt. Woodson Golf Course and Club in Ramona, CA is a gorgeous spot for ANYBODY looking for beautiful, colorful photos!
Alex had been planning the perfect San Diego day for his bride to be with us for quite some time leading up to the day. His attention to detail and desire to make everything perfect was a true gentlemen's touch! The day was here, and boy could we not have asked for a better scenery and sky that night at II Fornaio in Coronado, CA. Not everything went according to Alex's Plan (As you'll see later) but, if the plan doesn't work, change the plan, but never the goal!
This years Christmas Minis in Ramona, CA were some of our all time favorites. What's more fun then a Christmas Tree Farm! Christmas is a time of joy, a time of love, and for family! We wish you all a Merry Christmas with your loved ones and can't wait to see what next years minis entail... (hint, hint: may include a vintage red truck!!!)
As High School sweethearts Matt & Ashley strolled along the pier in Ocean Beach California, we knew this surprise proposal was going to be one for the books. The cotton candy skies over Ocean Beach Pier were just as sweet as the look on Matt's face as he walked hand in hand with his Fiancee to be!
