Baby Logan

Last week my (little) brother Marcus and his wife Heather welcomed their little bundle of joy into the world, Logan Marcus Allen Jones. I was scheduled to go visit them this week, but I couldn’t help myself and had to hop on a plane early to meet my new nephew (and take some pictures of course).

Little Logan is so cute! He was easy going and after the right encouragement (<-trade secrets), he slept the entire shoot for us.

The party began early. We already had Marcus and Heather at my mom's house, then of course mom was there too and right as I am getting ready to start shooting, a couple of my aunts (Linda and Brenda) plus my grandma Momo called and said they are on their way to come see us. I wasn't sure how this was going to work out with all the people coming and going, but the day was perfect. Everyone got to hold him, I was able to visit a bit and photograph baby all in a single afternoon. It was a big party and little Logan was a good sport, posing for me like a pro.

I am so happy I got to see and hug everyone and I loved every minute I got to spend with baby. Granted, I love every minute I spend with all the babies I photograph, but I am slightly partial to Logan, after all, he is my nephew:)

Check out his chubby cheeks, can they be any more kissable!!!

Priscilla & Eric – San Diego Photographer

When Priscilla & Eric got married, they had a great party in Mexico, lots of  dancing and celebrating.  For their 10 year anniversary Priscilla and Eric wanted to do it all over again.  The dinner party was in Old Town San Diego at Fiesta de Reyes.  It is a beautiful place, vibrant and colorful, the perfect atmosphere for a fun party. Friends and family were there, the food was great, the band was playing their favorites songs and everyone was having a great time! A memorable 10 year anniversary party.

Here are some of our favorite images from the day.

Karina’s Maternity Photos

I first spoke with Karina two years ago, she called to schedule a photo session for her first pregnancy and we got along famously. A little while later I photographed sweet baby Lila Jean shortly after her arrival, you can see her newborn session images here.

Since then I’ve capture many more special moments. I so love spending time with them, we can just sit and talk for hours and usually our photo sessions are really long because of all the fun conversation.

So now, we’re on to Round II. This maternity photoshoot was so easy. People photograph best when they are themselves and Karina & Ryan are happy, easy going people. Lila Jean is such a fun child to be around; she’s also full of energy, so there was lots of running and giggling but that is what good pictures are made of. I love this family, such nice people.

I am so happy they found me!

Baby Ilai


My best friend Ira had a baby, a cute, sweet little baby boy. This is a moment we’ve been dreaming of. To have a baby that is all ours (I know he is not really mine, but he is almost mine). We can finally do our marathon photography session and take all the pictures we want to. We have a ton of props, a gazillion baskets, any wrap color you can imagine, all sorts of cute little baby hats…
There is only one problem: This sweet, adorable, little baby did not want anything to do with pictures, he likes to be awake. Yep he barely sleeps. We tried every trick we know, and yet Ilai did not fall asleep, he eats, he burps, he poops and he pees but falling asleep is not on his schedule. We had three photoshoot days and for the most part we got a 10 minute nap. I still loved every minute I spent with him. Here are some images from our little photo safari.
