Sweet Girl Next Door – Boudoir

When I first met Christina, I liked her right away. She’s one of those people you can’t help but love, that classic girl next door. She always wore the happiest smile and is so sweet and loving. Not to mention, she’s drop dead gorgeous and incredibly healthy!! I couldn’t wait for her boudoir session. The main reason why is because I felt she really deserved to see how beautiful she is inside out. Also, boudoirs allow and empower women to honor their bodies no matter what shape or size. She has never posed in front of a camera before, let alone in lingerie, so she was a little shy at first. But, she ended up having one of the best times!! Our hair stylist and make up artist’s jaws literally dropped as she strike and pose away for the camera. Between the hair flips, lipstick, cute thongs, and playful stilettos, her confidence shined through and she was never sexier! This shoot was inspiring ( I really need to work out more) and I’m so proud of her. The human form is such an art and its so important to capture and remember what we worked so hard on building. Boudoirs are private sessions I offer and I love that more women are open to the idea today. Plus, they make great personal gifts;)

Special thanks to one of the most amazing make-up artists in San Diego, Thuy from Fresh Face Era and our talented hair-stylist, Uyen from Uyen Designs !! Also, thank you to my lighting assistant, Amy Thai, my younger sister. Enjoy and there’ll be more boudoir sessions to come!

Engagement at Torrey Pines State Reserve & Torrey Pines State Beach – Jenel & Andrea

It was an exciting time for Jenel & Andrea. They immediately began their engagement shoot with so much energy and love. Andrea was looking hot and Jenel couldn’t resist. It was as if they were waiting for this moment for a long time and it was finally unfolding. That’s what I love about offering all my couples a complimentary engagement session. Its a great time for them to loosen up during the stressful wedding plans and regather all important thoughts about their relationship. The sun joined us just in time for their shoot and here are a few of the outcome, enjoy =D

Wedding at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club – Elizabeth & Don

From the laces of her dress to hues of fresh roses, every little detail was carefully thought out. The wedding was soft, lovely, and romantic, just like how many describe Liz and Don’s relationship. Don showed up fitted into her life like a perfect puzzle. Her admirable presence is contagious, her beauty was prevalent inside and out, and her strong determination as a mother and companion was something to note for. Don was immediately captivated. She fell in love with the handsome gentlemen and in this union, they’re now a complete family.
