Reid's 1st Birthday Party! | Riverside Photographer

My good friend and fellow photographer, Carrie Johnson, asked me to photograph her son's awesome first birthday party. Carrie is busier than nearly anyone I know - she's the mom of two young boys and runs two very busy businesses. How she had the time and energy to plan such a great party is beyond me, but she definitely pulled it off! The kids loved the Spiderman bounce house and the clown who did face painting and magic tricks. We also all left with great candy treat bags, so all in all, it was a great day!

Janae & Rick's Temecula Wedding | Southern California Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of 2nd shooting Janae and Rick's wedding with my friend Erin Alfaro at the Temeku Hills Golf Club. My job was to hang out with the guys and photograph their, er, shenanigans while Erin shot the girls getting ready. Rick and his guys were hilarious and had me laughing all afternoon. Also, they were great listeners. Sounds weird, right? Well, imagine 11 guys on their friends wedding day - the atmosphere is fun and a bit crazy, but Rick and his guys also took their job seriously. They obediently followed me when it was time for some posed photos and made my part of the day nice and easy. Thanks guys! Congratulations Janae and Rick. Your wedding was beautiful! Also, thank you Erin for letting me hang out with you and be a part of this great day.



The Martin Family | Folsom Family Photographer

Photographers keep hiring me, what is up wit that? haha. Don't they know that it makes me nervous?! ;) I know Anita from a photography forum and if she looks familiar it's because she was the matron of honor at Christina & Dave's wedding! Anita has also 2nd shot a wedding with me. She's awesome. I won't lie. Photographing 2 year olds can be hard. Really hard. As in, they make weddings seem easy to me. However, Andrew decided that he wanted to be adorably cute and perfect so that I would be tempted to love shooting 2 year olds. Well, I definitely did this time. Andrew is so sweet and his mommy and daddy know exactly how to make him ham it up for the camera.

Thank you Anita, David and Andrew for this beautiful little session. I had a great time and hope that we can all hang out again soon!
