Spring has sprung! And with all the rain a little bit of Heaven has been popping up everywhere. What a treat for us photographers shooting in Southern California! Our prayers have been answered!

Emily choose the perfect time for her high school senior portraits. We were able to shoot in open fields which otherwise are cut back for fire maintenance. After that we sprinted to the ocean to capture the warm glow of the sun setting. Truly stunning.

Emily asked to incorporate her love of softball, the beach, and the organic feel of nature into her final product. And with our text, calls, and a one to one meeting we were able to finalize location and outfit selection to achieve exactly what she wanted.


Wishing you nothing but the best as you finish out your senior year and head into the next season of your life. Go get ’em kid!





Friends since they were little boys, they are now ready for their next season of growing up.  No doubt things change after high school but I have a feeling these boys will always hold each other near and dear.   What a great way to capture friendship by holding senior sessions together.  These images will always be gems as they go through life together. Wishing these boys a future full of adventure, good fortune, and memories to last a lifetime.  


Mini sessions are a great way to grab those images for holiday cards and wall portraits to hang in your home.   The first date and location to be released is Pine Valley.  Looking for a location that represents the fall season? Pine Valley offers a nice  alternative from those typical beach shots.  Pine tress, colorful natural shrubs, and warm colors will give your images textures and warmth.   If you never been to the mountains of San Diego, now is your opportunity to fully embrace a special place tucked in an area many San Diego locals didn’t even know existed.

And she is off into this world with hopes and dreams.  As crazy as us adults think this world is,  I know we will be in good hands with the kind of kids that are ready to take on our future.  Camryn is a confidant, respectable, intelligent young woman who is going to do great things.   After spending many hours shooting her in the last couple of months I can tell she is going to make a loving and caring impact in so many lives.  I am honored to have documented these important chapters, and I look forward to more time together.   

Thank you to both Camryn and her mother Kelley for seeing my vision and running with it.  Until we meet again, wishing your family so much joy in the exciting years to come. 

xxoo, Karen
