I met Jessica in 2017 when she performed (violin) as a duet with a friend of mine who played Piano. And ever since, she has asked me to come film the SoCal Philharmonic concerts since she is first chair. This holiday season, Jessica had me come over one afternoon to her house in Laguna Beach to photograph her family for their Holiday card. They do the same photo every year, full family with an instrument. I was honored to photograph this year’s photo.
Happy 99th Birthday to my grandmother aka Avó!
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.
I’ve been friends with Ashley for a few years now and we met on Instagram. We live only 15 minutes away from each other and I have enjoyed watching her family grow. Her and Robert are great parents to Frankieand she is such a darling baby. Check out some of my favorites from our beach/home session!
