Karlee // Senior

Karlee // Senior

Into the wild I go.
Loosing my way, finding my soul.

Senior year is wrapping up whether you are a high school senior, or now a college grad! The end of May and June are filled with celebration, eagerness of what is next and big dreams! So in honor of Graduation season coming to an end, today I want to share with you this sweet little ladies Senior Session. A few years back I photographed Karlee in a Mini Session with her big sis when her sister was a Senior. Now she's the Senior, almost graduate! and she's off to CAL to play Softball (how rad!) In the middle of Northern California this amazing garden bringing some desert vibes and making my photographers heart so happy! Enjoy!

Lauren + Nick // Santa Cruz Engagement Session // Natural Bridges State Beach

Lauren + Nick // Santa Cruz Engagement Session // Natural Bridges State Beach

Young love, and two old souls make for a beautiful story. These two hold each other a little tighter for they've held each other up through the hardest time life can throw at you. They came out stronger, deeper in love, and more beautiful. Lauren is the sweetest little lady, who I've known for quite a few years now and I'm so happy she found a man to hold her tight and make her glow.

We enjoyed the evening wandering though the meadows in West Cliff, catching up on life, chatting about wedding planning, and laughing over every giant mud puddle we encountered on the trails and how we were going to get around it. As the sun got lower we took a short drive down to Natural Bridges State Beach, where we stayed until the sun dropped below the horizon and that beautiful after sunset light came out, I couldn't say "oh, one more shot!" again (because aren't they just so natural and sweet!), and there was no light left in the day. Nick and Lauren, you share a beautiful love, that so many wish to have at our age and it only means one thing, you two have each other for a little longer than most. Enjoy all the places life takes you, I know you will. 

S + A's Backyard Wedding

S + A's Backyard Wedding

I knew these two individuals before they were Summer and Anthony, so it was quite an honor when they asked me to photograph their wedding. It's been just under a year since these two said I do and today their special day was featured on Borrowed and Blue! So that called for sharing some of my favorites from this intimate event that they shared with their closest family in the backyard that he grew up in!

K+T Engagement Session

K+T Engagement Session

These two sweethearts have been together for over ten years! and are dear friends of mine. They are pretty rad and have a unique story if I might say so. From this session you may not know that they both race Motocross professionally. They clean up good right!? Motocross is how they met and ever since they've been on a journey together traveling and racing all over the world. We wandered the hills and trails near wear she grew up and where they often mountain bike together. It was an honor to create these portraits as a time stamp on the year they were engaged. On Saturday, they are saying I do and I could not be more excited to stand beside them as part of their wedding party! Yup, no camera. A bouquet and pretty dress! I'm so excited to be on the other side of a wedding day and celebrate with you Kacy and Travis. 

J+T Engagement - Yosemite

J+T Engagement - Yosemite

Path's can cross in places you never expect. These two never imagined a Vegas trip would lead to meeting the love of their life, but when Jas saw Tiernan she knew she must introduce herself! An instant connection and long distance across the country eventually led to Jas moving back East and a sweet proposal including all of their closest family.  She is originally from California and when they came back for the Holidays, they planned to spend a weekend in Yosemite for New Years, just the perfect setting for their engagement session.

When you find that one location as a photographer that just steals your heart. This stunning island is close to home and a go to over the past almost ten years, but the best part is it shows new beauty every visit. Cari and I found this wall covered in morning glories and knew we had to  plan something! Danielle was a gem to work with and Claudia pulled together our vision as our hair and make up artist! 

Natalie - Senior

Natalie - Senior

Years ago, Natalie and I met through Motocross. Yup, this sweet young lady rides dirtbikes! Fast forward to now, she has moved out of state and is a Senior in High School. She was visiting her Best Friend for the Holidays and we were able to catch up and create beautiful portraits of her, shared lots of stories and she even brought her life long best friend along so I could capture them together!
