Fall Mini Sessions!

I can’t believe it’s time for fall mini sessions! Didn’t this year just start?? I’m offering four awesome locations, all with a different feel. On October 2nd I’ll be shooting at Oak Canyon Nature Center in the morning and a fun trail area in Brea in the evening. On October 16th I will be shooting at Old Town San Juan Capistrano and on November 5th at a gorgeous OC beach! To book your session a 50% deposit is due at the time of booking. These fill up fast (especially the beach location) so send me an email soon at If these dates don’t work for you or you want more of a custom shoot, I still have openings for full photo sessions!


The top two photos are at the trail in Brea, bottom right is a similar beach location and bottom right is in San Juan Capistrano. Oak Canyon Nature Center is the top photo on the flyer above.

Styled Summer Mini Sessions!

I’m super excited to be announcing my first ever styled summer minis shoots! There will be two set ups and you can choose which one you want, or you can use both! They will be styled so boys and girls can use both sets (slightly different than the sample photos)! This shoot is great if you want updated photos of your kids but it’s also perfect for a cake smash or summer birthday shoot. It is limited to kids ages 6 months (or sitting up) to 10 years old.

Here are the dates and times available:
July 17th in Fullerton 9am, 9:30am, 10am
July 23rd in La Habra Heights 6:00pm, 6:30pm, 7pm
July 30th in Irvine 6:00pm, 6:30pm, 7pm
August 13th in Irvine 6:00pm, 6:30pm, 7pm
August 14th in Fullerton 9am, 9:30am, 10am
All location have a nature feel like the sample photos.

Please email me at and we can figure out the best time for your session!


Here are a few more examples. These were personalized full sessions so the set and props will be slightly different for the mini sessions. I have a new tent with a patchwork fabric coming and will have different props. I will be using the same canopy but different pillows and blankets.

Kayleigh Turns Seven!

Most parents do photo shoots when their little ones turn one, maybe even two but then they seem to stop. I love that I got to do an 7 year shoot! Such a great age to photograph and Kayleigh was so fun to work with! This was back in the spring when the wild flowers were everywhere!
