Love is in the air...

Love is in the air...

When you have a child or a child growing inside of you, the best part about it is you get to fall in love all over again. Like the first time you fell in love, or when you said "I do" to the love of your life.

Today my heart is full of love and I owe it all to the one person who showed me first what true love was...

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope your day is full of love and blessings...

My first published photos!

I was contacted by the awesome Brittany Bentine of Locked Illusions Photographic Artistry out of Houston, Texas to contribute two of my pictures she chose personally for the very first issue of Aphotic Magazine. I was honored and SO excited to be able to contribute some of my work to this magazine. This magazine is a goth/alternative magazine that showcases some of the finest alternative art, fashion, and photography but also provides great articles for families. 

The first issue came out this week and I am so happy to see my pictures showcased right along next to other amazing artists. Sometimes you doubt yourself as a photographer and this has only made my passion grow stronger to provide quality custom images for my clients. Pick up a copy today!

Riverside Family Photographer | The Villalobos Family

This session has been LONG over due.

My friend Lisa and I have been friends for over a decade. 15 years to be exact. We met in Jr High and have remained friends ever since. We have experienced so much together, it is amazing how much this woman has supported me. She was right there along side me when we both started our businesses. She has an amazing hair accessories business called Miss Misfits Accessories and she pretty much started her businesses around the same time I started taking my photography seriously. She is such an awesome mommy and wife and I can't explain how much she has helped me in my personal life and in my business.

Not to mention she also has one of the most raddest families I know. I have known her husband since high school and was able to see both of their kids grow into amazing little youngsters.

To my Lisa, thank you so much for supporting me. Best friends forever!

Riverside Family Photographer | The Flores Family

December is always hectic for me. Everyone is trying to get in their Christmas card sessions and I always have fun working under pressure :)

I met this couple a few years ago from a mutual friend (who will be featured in my next post), way before either of us got married and had children. I was so happy to have the opportunity to photograph them and their adorable little boys and just see the love they have for each other and as a family.

Bring on the New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I will be updating my site with some more posts once I get a minute. The last two months were spent enjoying the holidays and spending time with family, and it felt great! It was a hectic few months but I am ready to tackle the new year head on.

I am currently 23 weeks pregnant this week and I must say, documenting my growing belly has been a task in itself! Who knew your belly could grow so much so fast! Here is a few from the last few months. Gotta love Week 19. It is my favorite shot so far because my little man was assisting me. I love him.

I hope you all have a great year and you will definitely be seeing more of me and my amazing expanding belly!

This chick is AMAZING! I call her wonder woman. We have been friends for almost 15 years. I have seen her graduate, get married, and have children....This one will be her sixth baby...Yes, I said SIXTH! I look up to her so much. She has so much patience and love for all her children. She is an inspiration to me and to others. Since this was her last child, she wanted to do a fun shoot and rock out. It was such a fun shoot.


Who says you can't be sexy and stylish while your pregnant!?
