This little angle of a baby was only 2 weeks old when I took these pictures, just a couple weeks ago. It’s so crazy how fast your baby grows and changes that documenting wether professionally or with your iPhone (like 99% of my pictures of John Henry are on my iPhone — convenience, right?) Anyway, this session was going to be pushed back but Mama decided to arrange their schedule JUST to get these pics done pronto. They never are going to be as young as the are today.
I love photographing families in their home. This family photography session was taken in Bishop, CA — they just happened to have that AMAZING willow tree in the back yard. I told them people pay a lot of money to style their wedding with stuff like that, they replied that that tree alone was one of the reasons they bought their house.
This session was shot with my Canon 5d and my Sigma 35mm lens. I have been obsessed with using my prism with you can tell made an appearance on the 3rd image below.
Oh babies. I have always wanted to be a mom and now that I am one, it really is as good as I always hoped. Photographing other moms is becoming one of my new favorite things.
So many families come up from Southern California to vacation and enjoy the fall color around the Eastern Sierra. My family and I always head up to Rock Creek (definite soft spot for that canyon) but rarely get out to other places — I’m so thankful that my photography gets me out when I would probably otherwise me cuddled up at home with Phil & John Henry…. Husband + Baby = My World.
So, are you coming up from So Cal and looking for a photographer to document your family around the holidays? These photos are taken up at Convict Lake, just 15 or 20 minutes south of Mammoth Lakes. Of course there is NO shortage of beautiful locations to photograph families and loved ones, and hey! So many options just walking distance from the car.
I love wrangling kiddos although with just 6 months of mommyhood under my belt, I can’t claim I’m an expert or anything but I love being a part of the family, if even just for an hour.
I can’t believe I haven’t gone up to South Lake in AGES!!! The fall color is so beautiful right now and the temperatures are just perfect. I got to photograph this wonderful family and their adorbs 6 month old little girl. So happy to actually call these folks my friends.

I think it’s SO so sooo important to have mentors in your life. People that believe in you and encourage you and plant little ideas in your head for success. I am SO so sooo fortunate to have a few of those very special people in my life.
One of these particular mentors is always encouraging me to push my photography & business endeavors. This mentor of mine recently got some headshots done (not by me) — and this got my wheels turning about the headshot niche of photography that I’d never thought about. So here is the first trial run, with another good friend of mine, Melissa.
Just as I feel lucky to have friends who I also consider mentors, I also feel very lucky to have friends that double as models! Cough cough, like Melissa here…
Have you ever met someone who you just instantly clicked with? Katalin was that woman for me! I loved her energy and her personality — after the session we sat and had coffees together at Starbucks and it really was like sitting with an old friend.
This mama-to-be can’t be more excited about her little man, who is expected to say hello to the world in March — just a couple short weeks away!
I have been feeling so thankful for photography and the connections that I have been able to make through my camera. Katalin just reinforced those feelings ten fold. I’m looking forward to staying in touch and organizing play dates for our little ones.
Kids these days! 15 going on 25!!
This little one isn’t stranger to the wild lands of Bishop, California. Her mom & dad make sure this little jelly bean gets lots of play time and outside adventure. She surely is going to grow up to be the kind of kid who likes to play in mud, build forts and from time to time – skins a knee or two.
Emerson’s mom is an excellent graphic designer (which it doesn’t hurt to consider her a good friend!) She and I can exchange photography, baby & family portrait sessions for design. Cough cough – notice my EP logo? That’s thanks to Emerson’s lovely mom.
Well on this Friday afternoon we all snuck out to one of the many sunflower fields and photographed this little gem just as she was, Emerson.
The sunflower fields are just about gone but Bishop California has plenty to keep a photographer busy for a lifetime. Until the next photo session.
