Its not too late to book your 2014 senior session!  This last few weeks have been crazy busy with clients squeezing in their grad sessions before the actual ceremony.  I have been to the beach, open fields, funky coffee shops, stadiums, shopping centers, etc. to shoot 2014s graduating class.  Each senior session this year has been unique and custom designed for our clients.

I am always a sucker for Spring flowers and beautiful backlighting, so here is a recent session in Laguna Niguel Park.  Enjoy! ;)  To book a session, please email me at (don’t forget two s’s between skys and studio).



I love a big, happy, crazy, silly, challenging family photography session!  Seriously, this gets my heart pumping and my creativity flowing!  I love jumping around, making a specticle, just to get kids to laugh.   I guess this was why when I looked at the time, almost two hours had past and it seemed like no time at all while photographing the Montgomery family.  Each year they do a camping vacation in San Clemente State Park with lots of family and friends.  They start their trip off with a family photography session.  I love this tradition, as it really captures the story of this family over the years.  Thanks to their whole family for being amazing to work with!  I will let the images from the day, tell it all!  Enjoy!

I love school auctions!  It is a chance to help out the school systems, get in touch with a new group of families and create new work.  These three totally cutie gals came from my elementary school alma mater, so it was even more fun!  And cause, yes, they are three girls, it was all about pink! I don’t pull out the pink couch much… I actually traded it with one of my really good girl friends for her cream and black couch, so it isn’t even mine, but this time it just worked out.

Thank you you so much to the Dishon family for letting me play in the leaves with your beautiful girls and for supporting Mariner’s Elementary school! :)

I need to spend the time each year just being inspired!  That means trying out new props, new lighting techniques, new clothing, new location, etc. without time constraints.  That is good news for all of you who are looking to have an artistic experience with your portrait art!   I am offering these sessions at a discounted rate, along with 10 fully edited digital files and 1 wall portrait.  Now if you are members of my Blue Sky’s family, then you know this is an incredible deal, cause I don’t sell digital files (they are only available with our largest collections). These sessions will be used on our website and in our promotional material.  Just as an fyi….you must sign a model release to participate.


What I am most interested in:

High school juniors and seniors for my new website and siblings.

These art pieces will be perfect for gifts, seniors, 8th grade graduates, valentines day, birthdays, Facebook profile pics, gifts for your main squeeze!  The list goes on and on!

I feel like I am always saying, “the BEST thing about my job is…….”, but I can’t help it!  There are lots of great things about my job!  So, one of the best things about my job is seeing the same kiddos and families year after year and feeling like I am a part of their family.  Take this beautiful girl, for example, I think we have been taking her birthday portraits since she was two years old!  Now we laugh when Mom say “wait, I just need to brush your hair one more time” or “open your eyes when you smile!” :)   She has blossomed into such a sweet and fun gal and we had a great time goofing around in the park!  Thanks for always making these sessions loads of fun for me!  Enjoy!
