secretly wish I was as cool as this girl growing up. Ever since I met Brianna I could tell she was loved and adored by everyone who knows her. Her personality is bubbly, intelligent and makes you want to gossip with her all day about how gorgeous McDreamy is and how Don Draper and Betty are meant to be. I felt like I was sitting at the cool kids table when she asked me to photograph her senior session at the Happiest Place on Earth before her pass expires.
I spent that whole week eyeing the weather, doing my “go away rain” dance and praying for a decent day. The rain went away just in time and the weather was chilly but gorgeous. Her best friend Leah came along and it was nice having someone interacting with Brianna and bringing out her true colors. Her brother was even kind enough to hold all the purses…he just looked a little to comfortable doing so.
Brianna, I can’t wait to see where you head after high school. You are an amazing woman and I am blessed to have you in my life!
Enjoy the photos!

Fires, Families and Acting Like a Fool
I get butterflies before every photography session. Like, I almost pull over to throw up on the side of the freeway kind of butterflies. Especially when I’ve never met the client in person. So, imagine those butterflies reaction when Andrew called me to let me know there was a fire…on the hill…directly above where the session was. I think those butterflies did a few back flips. Seriously.
Luckily, the news was itself making the fire a million times worse than the reality and it was out and smoke free by the time I pulled up to Laguna Beach.
Alison found me via Facebook and I’m so jazzed we got together to photograph her husband, Josh’s, entire family.
The entire family was amazing to work with and they even laughed at my attempts to be funny that I’m pretty sure just came out as me acting like a fool. Especially after I admitted Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds totally got married without my permission. The kids were great and troopers as they had me and their parents yelling “say cheese!”, “look at Kansas” and so much more.
Paul, Jeanne, Josh, Alison, Kaylee, Alexa, John, Robyn, Trenton, Jen, Guy, Violet, Chris and Lisa…you guys were fab in front of my camera and I am so honored to have met you. The love of your family is so clear and thanks for laughing at my corny-ness.
