My recent visit to Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach. Each year thousands of vibrant orange and black Monarch Butterflies flock to Pismo Beach, seeking shelter from the freezing northern winters. The butterflies cluster in the limbs of a grove of Eucalyptus trees at Pismo State Beach. It was a spectacular view.
Family portrait sessions are the perfect way to create a lasting heirloom! There are so many times we find excuses to not get a portrait done and we put it off. The most common excuse I have come across is people are busy, or are waiting to lose those 10 lbs. to get their portraits done. Get your portraits done now! Believe me, your kids and grandkids won’t look back on that portrait and care one bit about how you look. Instead they will be thrilled beyond belief those pictures EXIST! This is the coolest thing ever for me when I look through my family’s pictures, and see real life moments captured in time, that I couldn’t experience. Relatives I couldn’t meet, and the people who helped shape my grandparent’s lives, and ultimately my own.
That’s why I strongly feel that the most important thing about family pictures are that they exist. Pictures taken today are for future generations, and also for us to cherish several years from now.
A majority of our clients prefer to have their family portrait sessions done on location. One that is special to them. It could be your home, your favorite park or at the beach! The possibilities are as unique as you are.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your portraits done BEFORE the craziness of the Holiday Season begins?
I know it’s hard to start thinking about the holidays already, but I still remember how crazy last year’s holiday season was?
I’m super excited to announce that I will be offering a limited number of mini portrait sessions on Saturday, October 19th between 10 am and 5 pm in my studio! These sessions are perfect for:
- Families looking for amazing portraits for their holiday cards
- Graduation announcement cards for high school seniors
- Engaged couples needing portraits for their save-the-date cards
- Birth announcement cards
- And those who have been putting off getting their professional portraits done
The mini session includes a 30-minute session, an online gallery of 10-15 images, and a set of 25 custom 5x7 fine art holiday cards with envelopes for $249.

I got an opportunity to capture the cutest gestures of Skylar. She is such an adorable doll. I tried to capture the curiosity in her eyes.
For mom her kids are always babies. I loved this session so much, it was full mischief and positive energy. Looking at Matt and Kristy I was imagining my son and daughter and wished they would have the same bond when they grow up.
Recently I created a lot of slide shows for my clients. I have attached one of them for you to view and critic.
Many enquiries have come so far asking if I can create a slide show for them using/adding some of their old images and my answer is “YES”. So if you or someone you know wants to create a slideshow of old/new images to display at an event. I would love to create one for you.
Today is my daughter’s last day in 7th grade. She was so excited to go to school today. My son graduated from high school last week. Years go by so fast! The last few weeks were very busy for me, shooting a bunch of newborns, families and doing some headshots. Also, the weather these days is great. Summer is finally here. Being busy makes me happy!
The next two days are super hectic. I have a family shoot in the morning, after which I have to rush to Long Beach for our drama competition. Oh ya! Did I mention that I am acting in a play this year? I used to act as a child, and now almost two decades later, I am going back on stage. Let’s see what happens!
On Sunday, I am walking with my family in the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s”. Last year I started a program called “Thirty Days, One Cause”, in which I raised awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. I feel so proud to contribute to this great cause.
