Luke's First Birthday Session//Cake Smash//San Diego Children's Photographer

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE shooting first birthday cake smashes!?!? All of my little birthday client’s come to the studio and I custom order the yummiest and cutest cakes from Donalee. We start with some portraits in their nice clothes then move onto the fun, messy part!! I keep these sessions simple and easy for the littles, typically shoot them playing with a toy or capture them crawling or walking around.

Luke Copeland turned ONE in april and his mama picked the cutest farmer/cowboy theme! I was pretty excited that he LOVED his cake, not all little ones know what to do with a massive cake in front of them!!

Sophia and Aria //San Diego Maternity Photography //Mommy and Me

“If I know what love is, it is because of you.”

Becoming a Mom 6 years ago has been the biggest blessing and most rewarding jobs ever. This lovely mama is about to have not one, not two, but three beautiful girls to mother. I’m so happy I was able to capture such a special time for Sophia with her oldest daughter, Aria. I remember wanting to soak up every minute with my first before my second was born.

This beautiful, intimate mother daughter session has inspired me to do so many more sessions like this in the studio. I have an opportunity for these on May 4th, I’m hosting Mother’s Day mini sessions. Spots are filling up quick and I would love to be able to give this beautiful gift to as many mamas as possible. There is a button at the bottom of this post to inquire about booking.

Carly-Cake Smash

Oh how quickly that first year goes by! I love capturing first birthday photos, especially when cake is involved. This session was shot in the studio using a few different setups, I always recommend shooting some in a cute outfit before cake is put in front of your little, this way we get more than one look for the session!

I love to capture this special birthday, click the link down below to get more information!

Copeland Family

Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; its defined by commitment and love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other!
— Dave Willis

I have been photographing the Copeland family since their oldest was just a little newborn. I am so honored to be trusted with each and every family I capture. I adore shooting families and realize how incredibly important it is to capture each stage. I strive for my photos to tell more than words can. My goal at each session is to capture you just as you are, come as you are.

These images will be cherished when your littles have littles of their own. Often times looking back at my own family photos has brought so much appreciation and I am reminded what is the most important thing in my life when my eyes gets blurry and I lose focus.

Stephanie and Lochlan

When Stephanie first contacted me about scheduling a session with her and her boy Lochlan, I got really excited and had some amazing ideas come to mind! These two are not only adorable with a great sense of style but I loved watching them and their special bond as mom and son. We started out at one of their favorite San Diego coffee shops, darkhorse coffee roasters in North Park, then walked around and stumbled upon the coolest book store and my favorite shop, Pigment.

These are hands down some of my favorite images from 2018. Thank you again Stephanie for the privilege to document such a special part of your life.
