The Pattersons

John and Kelsey's wedding was one of the first I've ever photographed and this April they will be celebrating 5 years of marriage! I've had the priveldge of maintaining a relationship with this awesome couple and have been so blessed by them. Since getting married, the Pattersons have been busy. They are currently living in Spain, loving and serving the beautiful people of Valencia. We got to witness this first hand during our backpacking trip, when we came to stay with them two years ago, after our travel plans to Switzerland fell through, and we can't wait until the day we get to go back. Here are a few favorites from a little session we had during their recent visit.    

The Kladnik Family

I've had the joy of photographing the Kladniks for the past 3 years. Every time they message me to schedule their session I get so excited - not only do these people have style, but they are also some of the most genuine and loving folks I know. So privileged I get to spend time with them in their gorgeous Culver City! And this shoot was extra special because...there's a bun in the oven! And my is it such a symbol of God's love and faithfulness. Read a little about it here. xo

The Dort Family

Shortly after my family started to attend our current church I noticed Melissa and immediately decided that I wanted to meet her. Didn't take long for out paths to cross and took even less time for  us to become friends. My little family of 3 loves her family of 3 and I was so so excited to be able to photograph them. Jason, Melissa + Maxwell - thanks for being the warm-hearted and kind people you are! And thanks for being cute, too!
