Westin Desert Willow Photographer// The Jacobs Family


Westin Desert Willow Family Photos

The Jacobs family is from Chicago, Illinois and visits Palm Desert every summer. This year they wanted to have a family photo shoot on the property where they vacation each year. The Westin Desert Willow in Palm Desert is gorgeous. The resort is perched on 125 acres of immaculately manicured grounds in the scenic Sonoran Desert, The Westin Desert Willow Villas Palm Desert sets the tone for complete relaxation. No wonder the Jacobs family stays here each year.

We had a great time taking their photos. Here is a sneak peek at this Westin Desert Willow Family Photo Shoot.


Cedar Grove Park Irvine Family Photographer


Nothing is sweeter than a cute little one year old boy. Dylan was turning one and it was the perfect time to capture the moment of this tender and sweet age. I have loved every moment I get to spend with this family from taking their engagement photos in Laguna beach, to their rustic barn wedding at Strawberry Farms, to their country side maternity photos. Each special moment has brought the biggest smile to my face.

For Dylan’s one year session, we headed to Cedar Grove Park which is tucked away in Irvine. The grove of cedar trees made the perfect setting for Dylan’s lumberjack themed birthday party he was having.

This sweet little boy loved walking and exploring around the park and it was so much fun capturing his sweet expressions.

Check out this sweet sneak peek of Dylan turning one and please let me know when you need updated family photos.

Beautiful Family Photo Session at Terranea Oceanfront Resort

What better way to celebrate your 10 year wedding anniversary then to spend the weekend at the gorgeous Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. 10 years sure went by in a blink. I remember photographing this beautiful couples wedding day in historic Claremont, California, then watched them grow their family with these 3 sweet babes. It has been an honor to be their wedding photographer as well as their family photographer and this photo session in Terranea was on of my favorites.

It was a post card perfect day on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It is always such a treat to spend the day at Terranea resort especially while spending it with such a lovely family.

Here is a sneak peek at their family photo shoot.

If you have a chance, make your way down to Terranea, I promise you will love it and when you need updated family photos be sure to give me a call.
