As we traveled to California last week for one of our Simply Fresh Newborn Workshops, I had the opportunity to teach an outdoor family mentor session.
Not only did I LOVE trying out a new sunny location (especially one with sweet cactus plants-wink wink), but I LOVE meeting other photographers.
Kari Lovequist at Kari Lovequist Photography is already extremely talented, so it was an honor she chose me for a mentor session.
We got to chat about styling, poses, angles, lighting, client interaction, post processing, business, and much more.
Take a peek at some of my favorite moments captured with this perfect family that I love so very much.
Such sweethearts.


If you are interested in attending an outdoor family mentor session I have a few spots left for summer of 2016.  Check out more details on the mentor sessions, {HERE} and send over an email to with any questions. Thank you!

This beautiful family had originally booked their session for June.  JUNE!
Between all the rain and traveling for work we probably rescheduled their session at least 5 different times!
They waited….and waited…and waited some more to finally have their family session.
The stars aligned and November did not disappoint.
The sun was gorgeous, the temperature was an all time high, and the girls were beyond scrumptious.
Here is a little peek into our long awaited for perfect night.

Oh my goodness. Where do I even begin with the right words to describe how much I adore this family!?!
A few years ago when Amy & Skyler planned to adopt their third child, my heart tugged at the chance to capture their complete family.
Adoption didn’t go as planned, they experienced some bumpy roads along the journey, and their patience was tested to the max.
This family. They never gave up.  They prayed and prayed some more for God to lead them to finding their perfect baby girl.
I can’t even imagine the feelings they felt when their prayers had been answered.
The adoption process has come to the very best chapter, and they could bring their daughter home!
Willow Capri is a true gift. She has already touched so many hearts with her inspiring story.
And I was the lucky one to capture their love, laughter, and special glances that you know are part of their everyday life.
Thank you Goodmans for sharing your family’s journey with us all.
