Maternity Session at Grand Traditions Estate, Fallbrook, CA

I absolutely loved doing this maternity session!!  Mike, or Big Mike as I've always called him, and Krisi were so much fun to work with and I'm so glad they chose me to do their maternity photos.  I've known Mike since he was in junior high school as he and my son have been friends since then.  It sure made me feel old to think that my son's friends are married and starting families.  I met Krisi when they were in high school and then I didn't see either of them for awhile since Mike went into the Marines and had to move out of state.  It's good to have them back and reconnect again.  

Kaiden James was born on July 7, 2016 and he is the cutest little guy you have ever seen!!  I see the love that Mike and Krisi have for him and I know they are going to be the best parents.  Congratulations you two and thanks for letting me document a small part of it!  I am honored!

My Latest Family Portrait Session with the Marler Family at Grand Traditions Estate

Back in 2015, I was asked if I would donate a gift certificate for a session to a missions fundraising event at a local church.  I of course said yes because it was for such a good cause.  The Marler family made the bid and purchased my gift certificate.  I felt honored.  After meeting with Kim, the mother/wife, we were able to set a date for the shoot in April of 2016.  They chose to have their shoot done at the Grand Traditions Estate in Fallbrook, CA.  It's such an awesome location for a photo shoot and I was so excited to meet the rest of the family which was made up dad and two sisters.  They were such a loving family and I so enjoyed taking their portraits.  You could tell they are a very loving family and I hoped to be able to capture that love in my images.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!  And Marler family, thank you for trusting me to take your family portraits.  It was a pleasure!
