Welcome to


Chris & Mimi, Part II | Bakersfield Engagement Photography

I’ve got to tell you guys, as much as I loved part I of Chris & Mimi’s engagements, part II totally sends me to my happy place! There is something incredibly special about high school sweethearts♥ It’s kind of a rare thing these days so it’s something to be treasured always!

When getting session details together, I usually throw out a few ideas for locations. They’re all from a list of places I’ve been before. Every once in a while someone will shoot back with a location they really really want. Mimi asked if we could do part of their session at Foothill High School, and I LOVED it.

Chris & Mimi, I love seeing how you two interact together. Both times I photographed you two I noticed you couldn’t keep your eyes off each other. Instead I had to ask for you to look at me now and then! I know you two already share so much together, but your wedding day is going to bring so much more to what you already have♥ I cannot wait for your big day!

Big thanks to Foothill High School for allowing us to use the school grounds. It was the perfect location!

Session Freebie! | Bakersfield Photographer

I get so excited over these things! What’s better than a special freebie with your session? Yeah, I dunno either… I like free stuff, especially when I can show it off! Here’s the deal, I’m giving these awesome little accordion mini’s away with each session booked for a limited time. Even more fun, they come in a set of THREE. One for you, one for Gma #1 one for Gma #2! They’re 3in x 3in so they’re small enough to tote in your purse. If you would rather show it off at home they’re magnetic and stick right to your refrigerator. You want them don’t you?!

So here’s what you do….

•Book your session before June 1, 2012 (I’m already down to a very limited availability this year, check my calendar for dates!)
•Complete your session before September 1, 2012
*Get your set of 3 Mini Accordion Albums free!

    Yay! Glad you like it! These ones are WAY updated from the old ones I use to offer. If you wanted to order a few more, I’m putting them in my store for order, I can send a discount code to you ;)ReplyCancel

    Yes that would be great, do you think if I ordered them soon if they would be here by mother’s day? ReplyCancel

Project 52: I love the way she sleeps | Bakersfield Photographer

I LOVE that I can lay her down for bedtime, then come back to check on her 20mins later to find her dressed different! This time with a headband on and snuggling her Lalaloopsy doll♥ I love the way she sleeps.

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!
