You may be asking yourself, why do I need a professional photographer? I have a camera phone in my pocket and I can take pictures of the every day, so I must not need a professional photographer. And while these things are true, there are a number of reasons why you should hire a professional photographer. Here are the main reasons to hirer a photographer:
The whole family came up and visited us for Easter Sunday. I have always enjoyed spending time with my parents and since we moved to Camarillo we do not live as close to them anymore. I know we are still pretty close by, but I treasure every moment I get to spend with them, especially now that I do not see them as frequently as I would like. My parents always look amazing, but for Easter morning we all went to church together and my parents got extra dressed up. My dad even put on a sports coat!
Are you struggling with what to get Mom for Mother’s Day? I always have the hardest time coming up with new and interesting things to gift. I want something sentimental and meaningful. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite photo gifts!
I know that there are a bunch of reasons why you should print your pictures. Most people will tell you horror stories about how their laptop exploded or they dropped their phone in the toilet or some combination of these two. They lost every picture and had no backup. If they had only printed out those pictures. And while this is true, you should print out your pictures in case something happens to your computer, or phone, or other storage device. I think there is a much more important reason to print out your pictures!
Music is such an important part of my life and I know it can also be a connecting point. I’m so interested in learning about other peoples tastes in music. I thought one of the best ways for you to get to know me would be for me to let you in on what music I listen to while editing my photos. I recently found the I Heart Radio app and am obsessed with it, I turn it on in the background all the time. If I feel like listening to new music, I will just turn that on and listen to either the Country station or the Hit Radio. I haven’t exactly explored the entire app, so those are my two go to’s.
A few weeks ago I met my sister and her kids at the river for Spring Break! I barely ever get to see them, and I had been wanting to try a color shoot for a while, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity. I got to have some fun with my niece and nephew and try out a new type of photography.
I’ve compiled a list of some of the questions I have been getting recently. I will try to update this and repost in the future as more questions are asked. If you do not see your question answered here or would like to book a session please contact me.
I had the honor of doing a cake smash shoot for a little boy’s first birthday in Diamond Bar! I have known this little boy, Joey, since shortly after he was born. His parents are good friends of ours, his dad and my husband are cousins. I also had the honor of photographing their maternity photos, so I was super excited to be able to photograph Joey’s Cake Smash. He is just the cutest little boy and so photogenic.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I figured the perfect theme for this week would be ‘Lucky’. I obviously had to find something green and something that would be considered lucky if you found it. Luckily, I didn’t have to go far to find the perfect thing. I have been working in our backyard lately to try get it under control and pretty for summer. So basically that just means I’ve been picking a lot of weeds. I love this time of year because everything is blooming, unfortunately that means the weeds pop up faster than I can pick them all.
I have known the Lopez family for a while now, their middle son has been a good friend of my husband and I since high school. I did their Christmas photos last year too and their family has changed so much in just a year. They have a new little addition to their family and the rest of the little kids are growing and are all getting beautiful personalities of their own. It is so much fun to see the changes and differences year to year and I think these photos show off everyone’s personality. That is part of what I love so much about photography, it shows off who you are at that moment in time. Continue reading “Lopez Family Christmas Photos-University of La Verne University”
