Mike + Sabrina – Guardian Jet Center Engagement Portraits, Ontario CA

I got up at 5 am for this shoot. Which really isn’t that crazy, but getting up while it’s still dark, gathering my multiple bags, and cruising through my old Starbucks felt strangely familiar. That was the exact routine of early mornings getting to my old job. Which, during the holidays, I got up before 5 every day of the week. It was not my favorite part of that job. But honestly, I would get up in the dark every morning to shoot at an airport. To shoot anywhere really. That’s how I know this “job” is the one. So if anyone out there is looking for a sunrise session, I’m totally ready for it. 

I didn’t know that the Inland Empire had a Jet Center. But I guess most likely that’s because I’m not in the business of needing to store or use my personal jet. If I did, Guardian would totally be the place I’d use.

This was the long-awaited second half of Sabrina & Mike’s engagement shoot (the first half is here). It’s been in the works since about January, and I’m so glad we could make it happen. I could not be more excited for Mike and Sabrina’s wedding. They are so sweetly and simply in love that I can’t stand it.

The Duncansons – Hidden Valley Nature Center – Riverside Family Portraits

Kim and Jamie make me confident that there is a perfect someone for everyone. Their love perfectly complements each other in a way you rarely get to see. They have been together forever, I’m not sure how long, but I’m pretty sure once you hit the “forever” label… it doesn’t really matter.

They both have huge hearts. The kind of people you definitely want in your corner. Which makes me certain they are going to be the best kind of parents.

Mallory is one of the happiest babies I know. She wasn’t particularly thrilled with our choice of venues, but she still was a champ nontheless. We ventured out to Hidden Valley Nature Center for these. I had no idea the place even existed, but it was perfect!

Brittney Pecore - Fantastic! Love the colors! I’ve always wanted to try this location, and now i want to even more. =)

The ridiculously good looking Hannah Family : Corona Family Photography

I love, love, LOVE all the color in these portraits! If you’ve had a couple conversations with me within the last 3 months, chances are, the conversation has a least flirted with being focused on color. I’m obsessed lately. Ever since the first notes of spring hit this year, I’ve been easily sidetracked by bright colors and quirky hues.

So as the Hannah family walked up to their portrait session in Downtown Riverside I was, well, thrilled. And while the color was exciting to my easily distractible mind, I was pretty excited just to see one of my favorite families too. All the kids chipped in to buy a photo session for their mom for her birthday. What a sweet idea! And since her only son lives across the country, she definitely needs some pictures.

Slow Shooting on a Sunday

Ventured out on some couples shooting this Sunday. Yes, normally that would mean I shot some engagements, or some sweetheart photos, but this is not what went down. I actually went out shooting with my other half, because I think he’s really good at it, even though he’s never really tried. But I just knew. And now I know. We got some really good stuff, and I’m proud to say I’ve totally taught him everything he knows…. yep. In one hour on Sunday.

I told him where to put the sun, and he did the rest. Now I just have to get him to help with editing, and he’s hired!

Brandon + Joleen : Simple, elegant, and perfect. Corona CA wedding Photography

Turns out, I’m a sucker. Sometimes it’s during the first dance, sometimes it’s the priest, the speeches, or something the groom says to the bride. Or sometimes, it’s something that the groom doesn’t say to her, but that moment without words, that their eyes lock, and you can feel the strength of the love between the two… that just melts my heart and my eyes fill up. It doesn’t always spill over, but pretty much every single wedding these days, I’m just about to the point of tears. Because I’m such a sucker for love.

It seems to happen even if it’s the very first time I’ve met the couple, but it’s definitely worse when I’ve known them for as long as I’ve known Brandon and Joleen. Their wedding day was such a perfect illustration of their love for each other, and it came together so flawlessly with the help of family, friends, and even some impressive generosity from a certain someone’s boss. But those unexpected blessings are such a testament to how amazing and kind-hearted both Brandon and Joleen are.

Joleen and Brandon, I feel so fortunate to have been part of your day. To be able to hide behind the lens and capture the stunning display of your wedding, and to be able to put the camera down and smile at you two being just perfect for each other.  You guys are awesome.

Grab your coffee and enjoy, this is a long one!
