Last spring, I spent some time in beautiful Ventura, California, photographing sights around the city, as well as the gorgeous beaches. Here are some of my favorite shots - enjoy!
Last month, I had the joy of taking newborn photos of baby Atlas! I took maternity photos of his parents, Miyan and Derek, back in August. Atlas was 2 weeks old at the time of the shoot. He was so tiny, and has the most beautiful eyes! As you’d expect with a newborn, he decided to be a bit fussy, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time and still getting some sweet images. Their beloved dogs, Peanut and Kaiser, also made an appearance for the shoot. Is this family the cutest, or what?! Here are some of my favorites from the session.
This little guy is now 7 weeks old! This image below is probably my absolute favorite from the shoot.

In October, a local rescue group, Dallas DogRRR, teamed up with Cloud Nine Rescue Flights to fly in almost 40 dogs from Puerto Rico. Cloud Nine Rescue Flights is an incredible nonprofit that does large-scale long-distance animal rescue. These dogs and puppies were still suffering on the streets and in shelters in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Dallas DogRRR had foster homes lined up for each and every pup. It was wonderful to see so many kind people come together to help these dogs in need! Not only did many of these dogs arrive in very rough shape, but they had just made it through a stressful 5-hour flight. Despite this, each of these sweet, loving dogs was so resilient! Their tails were wagging, kisses were abundant, and even the most timid babies calmed down when they realized they were in a good place. Animal rescue is so important and rewarding, and millions of pets all over the country are without homes. I urge all of you to ADOPT, not shop, for your next best friend!

In April 2017, I made a trip to Italy, staying primarily in Rome. These images are from Rome’s City Centre. We walked through the historic sites as the sun set. I got to see the gorgeous Trevi Fountain illuminated at night, as well as the Pantheon and the Piazza Navona. Seeing all these historic sites at dusk was incredible!
