Tom and Anondi’s Engagement Pictures September 8, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph Tom and Anondi.  I was so excited they asked me to do this for them.  Tom is my brother from another Mother.  Actually, he is my sister’s cousin in law, but when he moved in with my sister and her husband when he was about 12 or 13, we pretty much forced into my family.  We didn’t really give him a choice! 😉  My brother and Tom quickly became best friends and I… well, I tolerated him at first.  He eventually grew on me and he quickly became a 2nd brother to me.  He practically lived at our house if I remember correctly.  He just became a part of our family.  A little over a year ago, Tom decided to move to San Diego, and I couldn’t have been more excited.  I don’t have a lot of family, (from my side) out here, so having him here was a blessing.  Plus I wanted my children to know their Uncle Tom and they definitely do now.  Jackson just absolutely adores him and he is quickly getting to know and loving Anondi as well!  When Tom told me he met Anondi, I kept thinking, what a perfect match!  She is exactly who he is looking for and who he needs!  Don and I knew Anondi from our singles branch, back before we were married and I always adored Anondi.  Tom is so attentive and caring with Anondi and she is so good with Tom as well.  They seem to put each other first before they think of themselves and I love seeing that.  I don’t think I have ever seen him this happy.  It truly warms my heart to see that and I adore Anondi even more for that!  I can’t wait to see what the next 40 or 50 years bring for these two!  You guys are awesome!  Can’t wait for the wedding in a few months!


This is the BEST picture from the entire shoot.  I get the serious case of the giggles every time I look at it.













Austin & Brittany’s Engagement Photos December 11, 2010 at 11:17 pm

This afternoon I met Austin and Brittany at Wind & Sea beach in La Jolla to do their engagement photos.  It was absolutely gorgeous down there… until the fog rolled in and ruined our perfect sunset. :o(  After the shoot I was driving back home and I noticed that the further away I got from the coast, you could see the prettiest pink sunset.  Too bad the fog at the beach literally swallowed the sun!  Oh well, what little time we did have was awesome!  And a HUGE thank you to Scot Adams for being our “sun,” (also known as my flash stick holder.)  He was so helpful and did a great job.  Anyways, here are a few of my fave’s from today’s shoot.

This is about the point the sun was swallowed by the fog.  One minute it was there and the next it completely disappeared and dropped about 10 degrees!  Good thing Austin and Brittany are from Utah, this was nothing for them. :o)

Justin & Haley’s Engagement Session November 21, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Yesterday I met Justin & Haley.  They are getting married in January and since I will be having my baby close to their wedding date I will not be able to photograph their wedding.  I was so bummed about that, but very excited that they wanted me to still shoot their engagement pictures.  We spent the afternoon at Balboa Park and the weather couldn’t have been better.  I really enjoyed my time with them.  Here are a few pictures from that session.












Randy & Katie’s Engagement Session Part 2 – 4/22/09 April 22, 2009 at 12:22 pm

Randy & Katie scheduled the 2nd half of their engagement session on Wednesday and just for fun I wanted to get some fun urban shots as well.  We went to Sunset Beach first, than headed on down to a grungy part of Point Loma and finished off at House of Blues Down Town.  It was a very fun photo shoot.  These two people are so much fun to photograph.  They had so much energy and loved doing fun poses.  I really enjoyed my evening photographing them.  Here are some of my favorite pictures.  Actually there are a lot of pictures.  I had a hard time picking only a few.













Randy & Katie 1/24/09 January 25, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Yesterday I met Randy and Katie at Sunset Cliffs to do their engagement photos.  We were a little worried about the weather cooperating with us, but it turned out to work in our favor.  The clouds really enhanced the sunset.  I had a lot of fun photographing Randy and Katie.  They are such a fun couple!  They both met while surfing so how fitting that their engagement pictures are done at the beach.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from that photo shoot.
