JOIN US SATURDAY for Love & Laundry’s Grand Opening!

Hey y’all!  Tomorrow it’s party time!  Love & Laundry is an adorable little boutique that recently opened down in Costa Mesa.  It’s one of those great little places that really has something for everybody and it’s the brain child of two amazing girls who thrive off of making others look beautiful.  I’m happy to support my friends Liz & Monique for the grand opening of Love & Laundry TOMORROW!  Branden and I will be rocking a PHOTOBOOTH fort the partay so come and check out the new digs, maybe buy some new laundry and most of all show your LOVE!  Here’s a little sneak peek of what you’ll find down there!

Come to shop.  Come for the swag, yeah baby!  Come have a blast rocking our photobooth!  Come check out some other local businesses.  Come to have a great time with amazing people.  Just come, ok?

The two who never cease to amaze me with their endless ideas and stunning style.  Monique & Liz!

Southern California Wedding Photographer – Ashley & Corey are married!

Ashley and Corey are a couple with such an abundance of fun and love that you really can’t help but adore being around them.  They worked so hard to pull together their dream wedding, packed full of personal touches made with their own amazing hands.  I’ve seen my fair share of handmade, DIY weddings but I think Ashley & Corey’s have had more details than any other.  It’s been quite a feat!  Impressively, they pulled it all off with smiles on their faces and were ready to just have a blast.  Sure, not everything was 100% perfect but what I love most about these two is that in those imperfect moments they can just shrug, give each other a sweet little smile and laugh together about just how perfect and wonderful even the imperfections in life are as long as they’re together.  It’s been so much fun getting to know these two and I hope that they continue to let the little things in life just fizzle out and focus on the brighter, more important, bigger picture…their love and their lives together.  It’s been a blast working with these two and every one of their fantastic family and friends.  I hope you all enjoy these pictures of this special day as much as I do.

Southern California Boudoir Photographer – Sneak Peek!

Well I can’t think of a better way to start the day than with a little sneak peek of this absolutely STUNNING woman I had the pleasure to photograph recently.  I’m a little bit in love with this picture this morning.  I hope you enjoy it too!  A few more are coming soon!  I promised my beautiful client that the pictures from her boudoir session would remain private except for the couple of close-ups she felt comfortable showing off.  I absolutely respect privacy of any of my clients but especially with such a personal subject matter as boudoir so I’m thrilled she feels confident and beautiful enough to let me show you all just a couple!  Gosh, with a beauty like this I’ll take any little bit I can get.  She sure brightens up the blog today, don’t you think?  Go ahead and leave a comment to tell Joanna just how gorgeous she is…outside and in.  That’s the best combination and it was a pleasure to get to know her.

Hair & Makeup were styled by the incredible Natalie McCracken!  Natalie owns Bellisima Beauty and Skin Care: A Beauty Supply shop and full service salon in Orange and you can find her information HERE!  I couldn’t recommend Natalie more.  Not only is she a dear friend, she even did MY makeup for my wedding day so clearly I believe in her amazing work 100%.  If you need any styling or even just some beauty supply products or skin care goodness, check out Nat and her lovely shop!

Happy Thursday folks!  I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Hi there! Best of luck with your new blog. My blog has been a tad bare lately just because of some personal things like moving and helping out with family in some difficult circumstances. Because of these kinds of things I know how difficult it can be to keep a blog up and running when life is super busy and my best advice to somebody wanting to blog regularly and maintain a successful blog is to plan ahead. Brainstorm ideas and always be a few blog posts ahead so that in your busiest and most difficult times you can just push a button and keep your blog going until you’re better able to give it your all. That’s honestly been one of my biggest struggles. Also, find your voice. Figure out what it is that you have to offer the world, what’s special and unique to you and if you employ that voice and continue with it in a genuine way you will find your readership. Great photos don’t hurt either! I wish you the best of luck in your new endeavor!

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment
(it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I’d
genuinely appreciate it.
