Welcome to the blog, a journal about my work, my clients, and their stories. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi there!

The Scott Family


Stephanie and her family are another group of people whom I have worked with many times over the years. Every time I am able to make a trip to California, I know she is going to want to set up a photo shoot and it makes me so happy! I love watching her babies grow up!

This year, Stephanie chose to do her family session at the San Diego Mormon Temple. For members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the temple is a holy house of God and a place where they make promises to Him, so their families can be together, not just in this life, but for eternity. I thought having a family session here was such a beautiful idea and reminder of that very special truth.

What I love more than the location of this shoot was that so much personality was captured! There is such beauty in the reality of family life and parenting and I’m grateful that Stephanie is a client who appreciates that, even when it means that her photos aren’t “perfectly posed.” In my opinion though, capturing those very personal and real interactions between family members is what really makes a collection of images “picture perfect.”
