Maggie's Maternity Session | Arlington Garden | Pasadena, CA

We shot Maggie’s Maternity Session on a very warm, Summer day at Arlington Garden in Pasadena, CA. The grounds are designed in a way that makes you feel like you’re in Italy and secluded from the rest of the bustling town that surrounds it. It literally felt like a little secret garden with twinkling magic hour light peaking through the trees. It was a perfect, relaxed place to have a summer evening Maternity Session. They welcomed their baby boy Landon very shortly after this session!

Nazi & Mark | Mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session | San Juan Capistrano, CA

Nazi and Mark will be getting married later this year at Hummingbird Nest Ranch. Naturally, we wanted to choose a location for their Engagement Session that felt consistent with the Tuscan inspired details of their venue. From the textured walls to the gorgeous light, Mission San Juan Capistrano felt like the perfect fit for this elegant pair.

Jon and Janae | San Diego, CA Engagement Session

For Jon and Janae’s San Diego Engagement Session, I wanted to do something that felt quintessentially California. The two met in San Diego and now live near the beach in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. The beach is a really big part of their lifestyle and I wanted to capture that for them. To me, nothing says California like driving with the wind in your hair along the beach…and Janae has perfect hair for that. The red Vespa we used was the ultimate blend of youthful fun and California vibrance while the shots we got on the sand at the beach were the sheer embodiment of California’s incomparable golden hour. We finished the session with some cozy shots on a boho blanket to create a story of relaxed romance.
