She’s here!

Sweet little Piper joined us just five short days after our fun maternity session. I’ve never seen a mama so focused, so in the “zone.” Truly a birth I will never forget. Image Welcome to the world, sweet little girl. 



Anxiously awaiting Piper…

In a few days, my dear friend and Pilates instructor will welcome girl #2 in the world. I can hardly wait…



Sweet Baby Cain

The universe has a way of bringing us into each other’s lives at just the right time. That’s how I’ve always felt about Carolyn & Canh, like we were meant to know each other.

On my way to their house the night of Cain’s birth, I was overwhelmed with the most intense feeling of love. Love for them, love for my role as their doula, and love for the baby we were about to welcome into the world. What an honor it was to be present for the birth of sweet baby Cain.

Even though it was a very fast, intense labor and birth, I was able to snap a couple great photos. Enjoy…

I am the Luckiest

The day my beautiful friends Mike & Brooke brought their lovely London Nicole into the world was a day that forever changed my life. No words could describe the love and honor I felt being a part of their incredible birth story. London’s birth changed me in a way I will cherish for the rest of my days.

On the eve of another amazing birth, I’m reminded of how fortunate I am to be a part of these intimate,  precious, unforgettable moments. I am the luckiest.

When the beautiful Cohen family asked me to photograph “the last moments of their family of three,” I couldn’t help but get a little emotional. With baby boy #2, Ryder, on the way, their hearts are exploding with love and excitement. Such a precious three, they are. Enjoy… 



maternity preview: carolyn + canh

Words cannot describe the love I have for these two. As they prepare for the arrival of sweet baby Cain, Carolyn & Canh invited me to capture some beautiful belly pics at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. What started out as a foggy Fall morning quickly turned into a gorgeous, sunny day. For people who describe themselves as “awkward” in front of the camera, I think we captured some pretty special moments. Enjoy…
