Meet sweet little Jackson, also known as Mr. Roboto. This baby boy was so cute and hilarious with so much character. When placed on his beautiful mama’s lap he started staring straight ahead while moving his little arms stiffly and he was transformed into Mr. Roboto. He was the perfect little model with his eyes always finding my lens and everytime I thought we had tuckered him out he rallied and gave us the best expressions. It was so much fun capuring both Jackson and his mom, Darlene.
I admire Hillary so completely. I often feel like I’m drowning in my school work and then I see Hillary going to school and being an amazing mother to her little munchkin and realize that I should really quit complaining about my workload and lack of sleep! Hillary is such a beautiful woman inside and out. She is always full of laughter and joy with her adorable baby in one arm and a camera in the other!
To celebrate the beginning of summer I broke out the picnic blanket, some bubbles and (wait for it) a video camera! These are some stills of Hillary with her Harper from a video I will be revealing in August! 🙂 Stay tuned!
One of my favorite things about being a portraitist is the amazing people I meet. Nikole is a beautiful person, mother, wife and works as a midwife! What an amazing job that must be…bringing new life into the world. My brother was born in the house that my parents built and that was such a special thing so I very much admire midwives :). Nikole’s huband, Marco, is a chef from Italy! Amazing! Together they have two of the most adorable children: Jackimo and Alma. I photographed Alma and Nikole together last week and felt so blessed to be able to photograph such beautiful people <3
“A kiss is the rosy dot over the “i” of living.”
Love is so special. It is the universal language, it is all.
These are portraits of Laci and Micah, a couple who met in Fairbanks, Alaska (my hometown) and picked up everything to move to Ventura, California on an adventure. I love it when people take risks and make big changes when they want to so I admire that they have these traits. I photographed them on their anniversary and we all enjoyed a wonderful sunset and lots of laughs 🙂
I absolutely adore photographing the fairer sex. Women each have such a unique wonderfulness about them and I truly believe that our femininity and special beauty should be celebrated.
Michelle is so utterly beautiful both inside and out. She is one of those women that you feel drawn too…she has a big personality, a big smile, and big hugs. I photographed her under some breathtaking trees in San Louis Obispo, California where she goes to school. I had such a blast and came away with some images that I found to be absolutely lovely. 🙂
