I tried really hard last year to have a shut down after December 10th so I could finish editing the remaining sessions for year and enjoy the holidays with my family + friends. Instead I spent December 23rd with Boonie, Gusty,Romeo, Fiona, Harley, Skyler, and their human Amber.

Amber had reached out to me in fear that this would be Romeo’s last Christmas as his health sadly began to diminish and she always wanted photos of all her fur babies together and some great images to remember him by if she lost him.

My Letter to the Universe 2018

My Letter to the Universe 2018

Back when the tumblr blogging days were a thing on that hipster social media lifestyle... I'd write a letter to Universe every single year. 

2018 WAS THE YEAR OF THE RAT RACE and I learned a lot!

I honestly couldn’t tell you what was right, left, up or down. I put over 20,000 miles on my car, took some flights, shot my first

Leanna inquiring about her session had me rolling because she was in Vegas with her daughter who just turned 21 and couldn’t make me any promises that she wouldn't get stuck on a roof somewhere just like the Hangover!

A month later I got to go out to her barn in Canby for my Oregon trip to meet Conrad! Her beautiful bay Thoroughbred that literally has the nickname “Handsome.” Leanna describing his personality was pretty spot on!

If taking pictures with your horse for your birthday isn’t the best present ever I don’t know what is! Claire and her mom Karrie had been so in love with my black backgrounds they wanted me out for a day of photo fun at their house in La Canada!

I’ll give you a little secret about being a photographer: when clients contact you again to photograph them we do a celebration dance because it means we did our job in making you feel comfortable and happy! Our goal is to always become your friend; seriously!

Michelle had me out a few months back to photograph her horse Hook and now had me out to capture her beautiful girls Chloe + Alexis. Obviously we had to force their brother in for a few too ;)
