Besides getting french kissed by Copper (yes the family dog), this family was so much fun. I have known Mariah, the oldest daughter, from the age of  about 2 years old.  Seeing her all grown up and become such a beautiful young woman, aside from making me feel VERY old, I am so proud of her and even more proud of her Mom. Courtney did such an AMAZING job at raising not only her but now 3 more Beautiful and Amazing kids. The two little ones got a kick out of watching my assistant (also known as my husband) play puppets with tutu’s on his head to get them to laugh. And let me not forget about Mike (the hubby).  He has been an extraordinary father to all 4 kids, and a great husband to my friend Courtney.

You guys are a beautiful family, and I feel blessed to call you my friends.





OK. Now, this takes skill! Not only did you get great shots of the family – but the dog too!? You go ‘Nessa!

Santacruz- Guzman Kiddos

These pictures were taken in San Diego at a local walking trail park. It has since then become one of my favorite places to do my photo sessions.

I love the textures in the bridge and the open grassy areas with amazingly beautiful trees. I had such a great time photographing these kids.

Between Ivan’s adorable dimples, Emma’s big beautiful brown eyes, Elissa’s porcelain face and Anais’s teenage beauty, as usual, I could not get enough!

I give big props to their mom for having the 3 little ones so close together in age.

It must be difficult but the love that they share for each other, I’m sure more than makes up for it!

This Lovely young lady is the daughter of a family friend whom was visiting from Morelia, Mexico. We literally shot these  pictures in about 10 minutes, we were so busy being tourists in Hollywood all day that by the time we decided to do photos we grabbed a few head pieces a change of clothing and drove to the closest place. As we were driving I could see the sun already starting to set. Luckily we stopped at the Beautiful San Fernando Mission jumped out of the car and began to shoot.

I will definitely be returning to that location for someones session it was stunning!
