Welcome to


Chris & Mimi Engagements, Part I | Bakersfield Engagement Photographer

I’ve been so anxious to share these! We had fun and there are a lot that I want to show, so I’m breaking their engagements up in two. There were two sessions anyhow so that makes sense :P

Part I started in the hills just sound of Bakersfield. It was windy, cold and very close to pouring rain. Chris & Mimi held out for the short time we were able to shoot until it was unbearable! They did great and I love the little bits we were able to get of their fun personalities!

Part II coming later this week! Come back and see what these high school sweethearts planned for their second session!

Project 52: Lip Gloss | Bakersfield Photographer

Week 16

Abigail has a little bit of an obsession with lip gloss. She has it with her everyday and she re-applies it several times a day! A few weeks ago she ran out of the 7+ flavors she had and begged her daddy to take her to Claire’s to restock her collection. She’s back at it again<3

This one isn’t B&W, I think color better shows her goofy personality! I like to think she gets her silliness from her mommy!

Seaton Family | Family Photographer, Bakersfield CA

Another awesome family on the blog! I had a hard time picking favorites for the post! I really enjoy giving a little direction then stepping back and letting the family do their own thing. It works out for me because I’m not yelling to do something silly and everyone looks natural. This family was perfect<3 Little man loves his mom and dad a ton and it was absolutely apparent while I was photographing them. Hold on to his “mommy come here” and big daddy hugs you guys♥ He’s going to grow out of them before you’re ready! Thanks so much for the great session!

Dominick | Child Photographer, Bakersfield CA

I’ve known this little guy since just before he was 2 years old. From the moment I met him he’s had the most amazing little personality! He’s a little shy at first, but once you get him talking he’ll have you in stitches! His session was a lot of giggles and silly things. I think he enjoys making others smile, and he’s so good at it! Shell you’ve done such a great job with your little guy, I love everything about him. Especially the way he loves his mommy ♥

Mommy & Me | Family Photographer, Bakersfield CA

I super-duper with all my heart love Mommy & Me sessions! It’s so important for us mom’s to be included in photos with our children. Growing up, photos like this with my family were always my favorite!

The most important of all of it is to have something that shows how much love you and your little ones share… like these two<3 Love them!
