Welcome to

THE BLOG

I had one goal for the year 2013, and that was for it to knock my socks off. That it did ♥ Just like everyone else at the end of the year, I sit back and feel so gracious for all the beautiful people I’ve met, worked with, made friends with. Thank you for making this year exactly what I dreamed of. Here’s to a wonderful year, and blessings for the new one!

♥ Jess Cadena

Earlier this month Britnie, Drew & Embug met me at a Christmas Tree Farm for a quick mini session before they picked out their perfect tree! Just a few of my favorites ♥

My favorite Johnston Family ventured out for their fall family session just last month, and I love them for it! I cannot believe how much little guy has grown!

This guy is so full of awesome. Don’t believe me? I dare you to give him your best gorilla impression and just see how he lights up! Plus, he doesn’t judge if you completely suck at being a gorilla ;)

So, I’ve had my pretty blue settee for a while now. I purposely bought it for my office & to tow out to sessions every now & then. First time for everything, because she finally made it out of the house! Also, bonus points for clients who come to the help to unload it ♥ Obviously I’ve lucked out in the awesome client department!

& I give you…. the absolutely adorable Cotter Family!

Oh my, I’m positive that this is going to be a photo explosion! David and I spent an hour with Tahnee & William during their engagement session and they’re way too good in front of the camera ;)

And to be perfectly honest, the amount of laughter and love shared during that hour makes me wish it was April already! Can these two get married already?! I’m so excited!

Hold on you guys, before I continue with this blog post I just have to take a moment to really just take a deep breath…. and breathe in all that fall goodness! I ♥ California, but I crave that real deep reds & oranges, crunchy leaves goodness! We just don’t get it here in Bakersfield. Well, not like up North or the East Coast anyway! So this fall family session makes all sorts of happy :)
