Bettie and I skate together at High Tide Roller Derby. She entered our free LGBTQ+ family giveaway this past Pride month and won! One way her and her wife bond is by being tattooed by her. Bettie’s left arm is almost completely covered in tattooes that her wife did. How cool is that?! I absolutely love capturing people in their element and this session was no exception!
My niece Maya is 12.5 years old and her mother told me a few weeks ago that she wanted to get her hair cut like me. Instant *heart eyes.* I love seeing young girls with pixie haircuts so I was thrilled to take her to see my stylist, Jessica Renich at Artkiteks Hair Studio in Costa Mesa, CA. We had a blast and Maya absolutely loved her new hair. Big thanks to Jessica for being awesome and making young girls and women, like myself, feel confident and beautiful by working her magic.
My derby sister Fish AKA Meg invited me to her family's tree hunting outing recently and I had such a hoot chasing little Delaney through the rows of pine trees. It was a joy to photograph their family during this annual tradition they have.
In April I held a Mother's Day Giveaway contest in my VIP Facebook Group (go join!) where I had people nominate a deserving mom for a FREE photo/video shoot. So many incredible women were nominated and after all the votes were counted, the winner was Ashley Miller!
Ashley and I worked at the same company in HR a few years ago and I had not seen her since she left. It was great to catch up a bit and to meet her adorable little fam.
Without further ado, meet the Millers!
It was a pleasure to document this family at one of their favorite places and give them photographs and a film to cherish for a life time. If you are interested in booking your authentic family session, drop me a line!
Last week I went to check out some friends' bands and brought my camera along with me.
I loved seeing all the amazing female musicians shredding on guitar and rockin' vocals. As a whole, it was a really fun show outside Hybrid Studios located in Santa Ana, CA.
Up Next...The Gromble. These guys have been playing together for years and at this show they played all new music for their longtime fans. The new tunes are pretty rad.
My husband, in the black hat, was running sound for the show - proud wife moment!
Up Next...No Vacation..From San Francisco! It was a treat to have this awesome band stop by Orange County on their California tour.
And last but not least, The Aquadolls! Their high energy had the crowd moving and they put on a great show.
