I want to be your photographer.
I married this really awesome guy named Jason and he sometimes assists me on shoots.
He has red hair and we're totally in love.
I grew up in a (very) small town in Idaho.
We live in Orange County, CA now (and LOVE it!).
I graduated from Brigham Young University – Idaho in photography and graphic design.
I am always in the mood for truck-style tacos.
My favorite color is poppy red (that's right, I'm picky about my reds).
I sometimes wish my skin could turn tan, but I'm a fan of freckles and sunscreen.
I am five foot two (and a half!).
Jas and I love America's Funniest Home Videos and have high hopes of making it on the show someday.
Smiling's my favorite.
I am obsessed with the light about an hour before sunset—magic.
Jas says I remind him of Mini Mouse when I get super excited and my voice gets four octaves higher.
I always wear fingernail polish, because it makes me feel real pretty.
My feet are always cold and I refuse to wear socks.
Getting real mail in the mailbox is the best (bills and ads do not count).
I love to meet new people—and look forward to hearing from you!!!
It was so fun to spend some time on a Friday morning with Sara and Tyler. We walked around their favorite beachy-neighborhood and tried not to get run over by cars, then we got the puppy and the cupcakes and headed down to the beach. It was a pretty perfect little morning actually! And let me tell you something—these two were made for each other. Picture perfect.

From the minute I met Esla I knew we were probably soul sistas. And look at those beautiful kiddos!! Watching them play with their papa was so adorable. These guys have the coziest living room and the cutest house, complete with white picket fence out front… I mean who can beat that? Plus they’re totally rad, evidence can be found below below.
In October I took a drive up to the Santa Ynez Valley for a perfect plaid flannel and apple orchard session with the most perfect couple in all of Santa Barbara. If it were possible to have a crush on a place it would be the Santa Ynez Valley. The only word that comes to mind is magical. That and other really good words like “Holy wow, that place rocks my socks off and breaks my little photographic-heart!” But magical sounds so much more poetic and professional.
These two are the sweetest, most genuine people you’ll ever meet—and they really know how to play Backgammon (always wanted to meet someone who knew how to play Backgammon) and they like it! Before they were married, while dating long distance, they would meet somewhere in the middle and this was one of their favorite activities. They make those flannels so classy.

This is one of my favorite families….. ever. I told them this about nine hundred times—this will be the last time I promise, stopping before I start to get creepy. They are so laid back, so happy, and, holy moly! They’re all super models! Awesome. Oh, and nice clothing choices Clare family. I loved that everyone had their own style and personality. A+ guys.
We had a blast exploring nature, along with the trillion bugs that she has to offer and the peacock that decided to parade his feathers past us as we were wrapping up.
It was kind of perfect.

This sassy little lady had herself a birthday. To celebrate we took some photos and her mama-mia, Rachael, brought balloons (because we all know birthdays equal balloons…. chello). Taytum is alllllllll girl and makes the best face expressions ever—she’s pretty much a kick in the pants and I love her attitude.
Before baby numero dos was born Rachael wanted a few photos of her plus the baby bump—so we snapped a couple of those at the end. Now Taytum has a super rad baby brother and I hear she’s totally in love with him and a pretty awesome big sissie.
