Marcus is One! | Riverside Family Photographer

I love nothing more than a happy toddler and two parents who are obviously completely smitten with their little boy. Here are a few of the photos from our recent mini session in Riverside!


The Ambrose Family | Riverside Family Portrait Photographer

This is my 3rd time photographing this awesome family. The first time, Crystal was pregnant with Cash and Brody had just turned one. I was supposed to photograph the birth of Cash, but Crystal went into labor at just 32 weeks. Cash is now a bubby, smiley, silly one year old and Brody is a proud older brother. They are both such good, kind little boys and the entire family was just a pleasure to photograph, as always!


The CMA Foundation Gala | Southern California Event Photographer

I had the honor of photographing the California Medical Association (CMA) Foundation Gala at the Marriot in Anaheim. This was a 600 person black-tie optional event complete with a step and repeat, cocktail hour, full dinner, speakers, awards, an auction, and performances by the amazing artist David Garibaldi (you must check out his site!) and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. The whole evening was simply wonderful and I left feeling like I was a guest instead of simply the photographer. On a personal note, I will disclose that I attempted to wear heels for the first time while I was working. Well, that was an epic fail. I managed to keep them on my feet for an hour and a half until I had to retreat to my black ballet flats that I had stashed in my bag.

I simply love photographing events. I like to feel like a fly on the wall and capture the personality that will undoubtedly shine through at every gathering. For the CMA Gala, I learned that doctors are funny and great dancers - who knew?!

And here I am with the gorgeous lady who helped plan and organize the entire evening. Thanks for giving me this opportunity to dress up ;)
