Growing up, I have always been an introvert. I was that kid that sat on the side lines watching everything around me. I enjoy observing the intricate details of life - the color, the smell, the personality, how people move in it, etc. As I got older, that joy in details grew into an admiration for photography and the ability to tell a story in a single snap shot. So whenever I get a free moment to pick up my camera, I do it! It's been a long time coming, but I am officially done with school (FOREVER, woot woot)! I'm a full time sonographer, working two jobs, trying to balance my career and my love for photography. I spend all day imaging people's insides and during my spare time I like to image people's outside :) Photography is one of my favorite past times, but with only so many hours in a day, it remains my hobby. Thus, I will be available for limited portrait sessions.

That's a little about me... now, tell me about you! I look forward to hearing from you.

The Millers | Family

The Miller family came down to SoCal for a family fun vacation @Disneyland and asked me to do their family shoot. How awesome is that! It truly was a celebratory weekend. First the celebration of their completed family and then Clem's birthday! Too bad I couldn't join them in the most magical place on earth! Oh well, next time. At least I get to meet them for some Boiling Crab tomorrow, w00t!

Instead, I met up with them in Orange and had a good time chasing Nicolas and chatting it up with the girls. They are such a sweet, loving family. It really warmed my heart to see so much love! I don't know how Jamie does it. She's got to be the most patient mom out there! I'll have to ask her some tips on how to be a calm, cool, mom. It probably helps that Clem is laid back too.

Don't forget to visit Catherine's blog for more pictures!

Cathy | Boudoir

A few months ago I did a fun, spunky b-pic session for my girlfriend Cathy on her bachelorette weekend! I've been dying to post her pictures, but had to wait until after Thaibinh got his gift. FINALLY! They are wed' and back from their honeymoon. Woohoo!

Below are only a few of what I got. I couldn't post anything too racy, so you're going to have to use your imagination!

Liz and Peter | Maternity

I spent this last weekend wondering if the rain would ruin my plans for a maternity shoot... Lucky for me, Sunday brought clear blue skies! So on with the shoot we went. I met Liz and Peter at church a few years ago, and although we don't hang out often, it's always such a breeze to talk to them.

Peter and Liz are expecting their first baby girl in about a month and I can't wait to meet her! Until then, I had a good time with her parents trying to capture the very special occasion.

Liz was so easy to work with. I feel privileged to have been her photographer. Just look at her...

Liz looks smoken' hot here, don't you agree?

Congratulations you two! Thank you for being such an easy subject for me :)
