Happy Halloween!

Brayden “The Sock Monkey” Bittel wanted to wish all of you a very happy Halloween!  He was supposed to be a dragon, but he outgrew his costume.  I was lucky that they still had this cute costume at Target.

As you can see, he’s taking his monkey role very seriously.

And Hauggy “The Piggy” Bittel also wanted to say Happy Halloween.  I could not get a decent picture of these two together for the life of me.  Poor Hauggy is such a good sport!

The Bernard Family

I was so lucky to do a shoot with not only someone who’s become a great friend, but also one of the most fabulous florists in Orange County, Jenny B.  Yeah, she has a super cool name too, right?  I think that’s why DrewB and Jenny B became such good friends :)  I met Jen a couple of years ago at a wedding and I just fell in love with her flowers.  She’s so creative and innovative.  I refer her to all of my brides.  

Jen and her husband, Jason, are expecting a baby boy!  And guess what?  She’s due on February 12, which is Brayden’s birthday!  They don’t have a name picked out yet, but I think Drew is a fabulous name for a little boy!

They already have a gorgeous daughter, Ava.  I hadn’t seen Ava since she was a year and half and she’s such a big girl now!  She’s in love with princesses and gold fish (the crackers) and soccer!  All of my favorite things too!

I think I talked Jen into doing a maternity session and a newborn session so hopefully you’ll see more of this gorgeous family on my blog soon!  For now here are there family pictures!

Casting Call!

Hi Everyone!

I’m looking for a couple to model for a project I’m working on in December.  You must be available this December in Orange County, preferably on a weekday, but I will consider you if you’re only available on the weekend.  You don’t have to be models or even comfortable in front of the camera, but you must be fun, in love, and up for anything!  I would love it if you have wedding attire to wear, but will also consider you if you don’t.  Please email me at with your availability, picture, and if you have wedding attire.  I will also consider past clients!  You will get a free session and a disc of your images.

Thanks in advance!



Update:  Thanks for all of the emails!  I knew my blog readers were awesome!  I found a couple last week, but will keep all of you in mind if I need models in the future.  Thanks again!
