Nikki & Ryan | San Ysidro Ranch Engagement Lifestyle Session

April 12th, 2014

One of my favorite perks of being a wedding photographer is becoming close to each couple I get connected with. Nikki & Ryan wanted to have their session set in Santa Barbara where they would take me down their memory lane to where they had first met. Now living in Albuquerque New Mexico where Nikki finds herself as a TV News Reporter for KOB Eyewitness News 4, I couldn’t help but smile as the two of them reminisced on memories they shared at State Street and the Marina. I’m honored to call Nikki and Ryan my friends and I can’t wait to photograph their intimate wedding in September! Without further ado, please enjoy Nikki & Ryan’s Santa Barbara & San Ysidro Ranch Engagement Lifestyle Session!

Amy & Sherwin | Malibu Maternity Lifestyle Portrait Session + Nova!

March 18th, 2014
SHARE IT

3.18.14 at 11:16am & I am in the waiting room impatiently waiting for a nurse to come get me so that I can finally meet my baby niece, Nova. The past nine months have flown by in what feels like a blink of the eye. During the drive to the hospital, I could not help become teary-eyed from the thought of how different life is going to be now.  This is going to be a personal post for myself because I want to remember how I feel at this very moment before I meet her. Since I haven’t met her yet, I think it’s only appropriate for me to share with you Amy and Sherwin’s Malibu Maternity Lifestyle Portrait Session.

To Nova, I don’t know you yet, but I already love you with all my heart. I’m excited to see the woman God will mold you to be and I pray that your joys will be filled in our Heavenly Father. I also pray that your joys will overflow onto the people God surrounds you with. You have wonderful parents that love me unconditionally. I can’t fathom how much more they will love their own daughter. In this family, you will always have someone to talk to, to guide you during your walk in life, to laugh with you, and to cry with you. Through your ups and downs you will always have family that will be there for you (I’m talking about your new favorite uncle ^_~).  I hope that in your eyes, I can be an uncle that inspires you to love God above all else and to love His people. I’m filled with joy in knowing that I get to watch you grow up. You will always be in my prayers.
