Meghen Lord Beauty Salon Photoshoot

I teamed up with my favorite San Diego stylist and good friend, Meghen Lord to take photos of some of her clients rocking various beauty and hair styles. And of course snuck in a couple shots in of the gorgeous lady herself.

Meet Meghen.

Old Sacramento Family Photos

For Christmas, Matt got me a 50mm Pentax lens for my camera and of course I had to take it for a spin while we were in Sacramento vising my family. We headed to McKinley Park, a childhood favorite, and Old Sacramento. With so many cool backdrops, Old Sac is one of the best places to take photos, so I took my wonderful models over to the track for some portraits. Below are a few of my favorites:

Coronado Island Family Photos

Here are a few of my favorites from my last shoot in Coronado. I met Jessica and her family at the Hotel Del Coronado and we found a few cool spots away from the heavy holiday crowds. They were so much fun to shoot and it was incredibly easy to capture their spunky, fun personalities!

A Weekend in Santa Barbara in Photos

Last August, my boyfriend and I headed up to Santa Barbara for the first time to see Rebelution at the Santa Barbara Bowl. If you haven’t been to a concert there, you should. The venue is incredible and you literally feel like you’re in a bowl on the side of a mountain. I’m not sure if it was the energy from the band, who are from SB or the fact that this was our first show together, but this was definitely my favorite concert I’ve been to (and I’ve seen Rebelution four times now).

Of course we made a whole weekend out of the trip and got to check out what Santa Barbara has to offer. The town is very cute and quaint, with a ton of wineries to try out. I definitely recommend touring around a few of them!

Lake Arrowhead in the Fall

If you live in Southern California and are looking for a cold mountain experience or a summer lake trip, Lake Arrowhead is just a little ways away. Here are some photos from a trip we took there in the early fall.
