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!

Baby Bump – A Menifee Lakes Maternity Session

Amanda has the perfect little baby bump. It’s the kind of baby bump that makes ladies want their own baby bump. I won’t get into specifics, but I think you catch my drift.

This shoot was so sophisticatedly simple. Perfect summer evening sun enveloped us as we walked literally steps from the proud parents house. Right from their doorstep, and out on the lake within seconds. I could not have asked for more.

You guys are going to be awesome parents. Can’t wait to meet him!

A bundle of newborn perfection – Meet Ella – Norco Newborn Photography

Another occupational bonus is I get first dibs on meeting friend’s new babies. The best time for a newborn shoot is pretty much 6 – 10 days old, and I was fortunate enough to meet this beauty while she was still in the single digits as far as days on earth are concerned. Which is perfect, because Ella’s mom probably met me around the same stage in my life. We go waaaay back.

Ella is as beautiful and flawless as she looks. An amazing little bundle of perfection. I cannot wait to watch her grow!

Have a happy and safe July 4th everyone! Hope you have the time to enjoy friends and BBQ!  (even if it’s soy dogs and veggies!)
