Oh what a joy it was to photograph these three! Katherine, Chris, and Jade were my first family I photographed in my new studio space and it was beautiful. I know Katherine from a local group in San Diego called Tuesdays Together and over time, particularly through her pregnancy, we got to know each other and become friends!
This tiny little girl (who was a month old the day of the shoot) has grown so much in the last few months, it's amazing. She is such a cutie so hopefully this isn't the last time your see a blog post featuring Katherines family.

Our Heirloom Layflat Albums
Providing pieces of artwork to my clients is something I find the most rewarding in my business. I don’t just send over a gallery or mail over a CD of images, but instead, hand deliver quality pieces of art straight to your home!
The art of displaying and passing down pictures has been done for many generations and I’m sure we are so thankful for that, seeing photos of our parents, grandparents, great grandparents…you get the picture! I’m sure all of us are grateful for the ability to have technology at our fingertips in seconds, giving us the opportunity to snap pictures of everything we want to remember, whenever we want. It’s hard to deny that this is a good thing (most of the time)!
Because everything is now digital, printing, displaying, and passing down photos of our lives has quickly taken a backseat. In just a split second, your phone, carrying all of your pictures from the last few years can be taken from us, never to be seen again, losing every single memory captured. Our computers can crash and our CDs, USBs and external hard drives can malfunction and go corrupt over time. Many people these days are also opting out of having a traditional computer and just going for portable tablets and mini laptops, many of which don’t have a CD drive! Remember good old floppy disks? My mom has a box in the attic filled with floppy disks she hopes to one day get the pictures off of. It’s impossible to find somewhere to use one of those, and I’m sure it won’t get any easier overtime!
Everyone can agree that looking through old photo albums and pictures, especially of their family and themselves can always be such a joy, looking back at old times, life stages, and seeing photos of loved ones who have long passed. This is what I love about offering our quality photo albums. Not only do they have an elegant charm about them, they are extremely durable and long lasting so that they can be passed down to the next generation.
Unlike your parent’s old photo albums, they don’t have to sit on a bookshelf or get lost in a closet somewhere, but instead are great social pieces and works of art to be displayed on a coffee table, or other social place to show new guests who visit your home. Having the pictures printed onto the thick pages also prevents photos from falling out over time and getting lost/damaged. The ultra smooth pages are also easy to wipe clean and are fingerprint proof (this is great if there’s children in your home)!
Overtime, new inventions come out and old ones fade away or are improved. Photo albums we’re a great attribute to our family history and the heirloom albums we offer are just an improvement to what we once we’re use to.
Below are photos of one of the beautiful heirloom albums I recently ordered and I’m so excited to share it with you! If you’ve had a session with me in the past and never had the opportunity to get your hands on one these beauties, I’d love to talk to you about creating one displaying your pictures.

I had such a marvelous time getting together with Lindsay and planning this session. We headed to Torrey Pines State Park and drove to the top to get started. Torrey Pines is large park with tons of trails which meant there was only so much we could see before the sun went down. Oh, and that sun...we had a small battle with the sun as it kept hiding from us from time to time but after a bit of a fight, we made it work for our pictures and ended up with such a dreamy session! It was such a wonderful session which included a dress from the amazing clothing site ModCloth. I highly suggest checking it out, there is an abundance of things to choose from. To really add to the session I got a bouquet from the same florist who made my wedding flowers, Designworks Florals. She created a stunning bouquet.
When I was visiting Maryland for a wedding, I got together with my cousin and her boyfriend for their one year anniversary and was able to take some adorable photos of them! I've always desired to take photos at this little airport in Edgewater, Maryland so with a few emails I made it happen. Unfortunately we didn't have much time with the rain coming in an actually raining on us during the shoot but we were able to get a good variety of pictures :)
Last weekend, my family and friends put together a bridal shower for me before I move to California. I had such a great time and am so grateful for all of the people who came and helped make me feel loved on this day. I'm also thankful for all of the hard work that helped make the shower fun and unforgettable. My maid of honor is quite the crafty one and made beautiful decorations to decorate the church fellowship hall where we had the shower. My favorite decoration of the shower definitely had to be the cake though! All credit goes to Sweet Sues bakeshop and coffee bar in North Beach, MD.
After my shower I am looking forward to my wedding day in 59 days even more! If you didn't read about my blog post on my big move to California, you can read about that here!
The other weekend I went back up to my favorite town, Lancaster. Believe it or not but out of all the places I've been (Italy doesn't count), it is my favorite place to be for many reasons. While I was there I met up with Hannah and Andrew who at this point, had only been engaged for about 3 weeks! I am just so happy for these two and being able take their engagement pictures. Even though we chose the coldest and windiest day ever (No seriously, wind was 50 mph), Andrew and Hannah were so cheerful throughout the whole thing as you can tell in their photos :)
Welcome Henry :)
