Egigian Martinez Mathison :: Family Portraits

This is such a wonderful family! My husband and I have had the joy of serving in youth ministry with Louis and Elise in the past and now we get to wish them well as they journey to the other side of the U.S.! This entire family truly is a gift to our community and the people around them and I was so happy to spend my morning capturing them all together before Louis, Elise, and little Jack follow God’s call to North Carolina.

Engagement :: Jason + Carly

It feels so good to be back after a long maternity break. One of my most favorite things is spending an afternoon with two people who are completely head over heels for each other! Jason and Carly were amazing to photograph and such a pleasure to be around (even in blazing 100 degree heat). Their love and joy for one another is so apparent and I can not wait to photograph their wedding in January! Here is a look at our session in Irvine Park.

Family Portrait :: The Millers and Baby Dalton

The holidays are here and it seems to be baby season too! So many adorable new little ones. The Miller family and I got to spend a lovely day at Irvine Ranch Historical Park with handsome little Dalton. As always, it was such a privilege to join this lovely family for an afternoon. At only 2 months old, he was wide-eyed by the sky and the trees and cracked a few grins for me too!

Newborn :: Baby Kate Shaffer

It was so much fun photographing this sweet little girl! Newborn sessions tend to be my favorite. Not to mention the ridiculously cute nursery design that momma Jill put together. But more than anything it was clear that these first time parents are head over heels in love with their new little joy. Loved spending the afternoon with this family!

Family Session :: The Newells

With the holiday season upon us I get another excuse to photograph one of my favorite little girls and dear friends. We got to tromp around Hill Crest Park and end our time with Lily’s favorite, the slide! But my favorite is most definitely the finger up the nose shot!

Travel :: Tokyo, Japan

So this post is looooong overdue! But better late than never. My husband and I try to take at least one trip a year and this year we counted our pennies and made the trek to Japan! Saxon lived there years ago and has wanted to go back for awhile.

I must say, Tokyo is an amazing city! I have never been anywhere that melded the old and new together so well. It is a city with deep and lasting heritage as well as booming innovation and forward thinking, so unique!

While we were truly amazed by the history and culture… our main goal was to eat our way through the city—and we did! We sampled the freshest sushi, richest ramen noodle and the most delicious gyoza dumplings!

With all that food, we walked an average of 15,000 steps a day to keep the calories burning. Needless to say it was an amazing, exhausting and once-in-a-lifetime trip and therefore a much longer blog post than normal.

WARNING: The following post contains extreme cuteness which may be detrimental to your health and sanity. Proceed with caution.

Ok, I know I’m a dork, but seriously, this little girl will make your insides hurt, that’s how cute she is! I know I am a bit biased since I am her “auntie” but I have never been around such a photogenic baby. Oh, Megan and Jason didn’t do too bad either. So I hope you enjoy this session with Lily, Megan and Jason—I did a little too much!

…You were warned…

Wedding Photography :: Nina + Pedro

October brought the pleasure and honor of photographing a lovely wedding in Palm Desert. After shooting Nina and Pedro’s engagement photos I was so looking forward the their big day! It was a perfect blue sky for such a momentous occasion! It is always a treat to share such intimate and memorable moments with a couple and I thank Nina and Pedro for inviting me to spend this important day with them and their family! Congratulations you two!
