Have family, will travel! I was delighted to accept my good friend’s request to join her growing family at their Park City, Utah home to capture the beautiful Fall colors for their holiday card. (It’s no secret that I jump at the chance to travel for work!)

As a Southern California native, the turning of the seasons just blew me away – it was my first time witnessing the vibrant yellows, oranges and reds. We worked with a handful of stunning locations, from their backyard to a babbling brook nearby. I couldn’t put my camera down and the results were just gorgeous!outdoor-family-photographer_48outdoor-family-photographer_49outdoor-family-photographer_51outdoor-family-photographer_52outdoor-family-photographer_53outdoor-family-photographer_54outdoor-family-photographer_55outdoor-family-photographer_56outdoor-family-photographer_57outdoor-family-photographer_58outdoor-family-photographer_59

santa-barbara-children-photographer_45I LOVE traveling for work, especially when I get to experience places like this!  Park City, I heart you!  As a southern California girl, I don’t often get to experience the colors of fall… I am in awe of this beautiful place.  Until we meet again…santa-barbara-children-photographer_46santa-barbara-children-photographer_47santa-barbara-children-photographer_48santa-barbara-children-photographer_49santa-barbara-children-photographer_50


Cue the haunted house soundtrack. Planned for mom’s birthday, this family pulled out all the stops with a green screen photo booth to take spooky photos, a bounce house, karaoke, a magician, a caricature portraitist, a DJ, games for the kids, pumpkin decorating, an airbrush tattoo artist and of course a fully catered buffet with cocktail concoctions for the adults.

Shooting this spectacular and totally over-the-top family Halloween party for over 100 guests was a seriously tricked out and memorable treat!


outdoor family photos_013There are so many great locations here in Santa Barbara, but these bluffs always take my breath away.  No matter how many times I walk along these cliffs, I am always in awe of this magical place… Truly stunning!!  With this vintage baby-blue Volkswagen Bug, this adorable little family, and these incredible views, I was in my own dreamland!!!  I couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon…  The light was perfect, the weather warm, and this sweet little girl was having the time of her life.  Magic!!!  outdoor family photos_014outdoor family photos_015outdoor family photos_016outdoor family photos_017outdoor family photos_018outdoor family photos_019outdoor family photos_020outdoor family photos_021outdoor family photos_022outdoor family photos_023outdoor family photos_024
