Sami contacted me a few weeks back with a secret plan to propose to his long time girlfriend Lauren at the Montage in Laguna Beach. I immediately said yes, and got so excited to shoot it! Because Sami wanted Lauren to not know that I was there at all until after he proposed, I hid behind the rocks for a good half hour before they were scheduled to be there, just in case. While I waited, I got to enjoy the beautiful rocks on the beach and even got to watch some other photoshoots happening right then too. When Sami texted me that they were on their way, I just so happen to come across a family of Asian tourists who were taking pictures of themselves right by me. I asked them to help me out by covering me so that I could get closer to Sami and Lauren. She didn’t notice me until he pointed me out after he proposed! It was an incredibly beautiful day on the beach, with a hazy layer covering the sun, leaving Sami and Lauren embracing to a watercolor sunset.

My lovely girlfriend Gabi is 7 months preggers and we finally found time to get a shoot in! Her husband William literally had an hour to shoot before he had to jet off to a gig in LA, so we got things rolling super fast. Thankfully, they are so natural together, and the chemistry was instantaneous with us. We banged out the shoot in record time and I could not be happier with the results.

Zain just turned 3 years old when I was in Atlanta this September. I was so happy to be there this year, as I saw the pictures from his Transformers party last year and missed them so much! Tamara always has the decorations up and this year, there was an amazing bounce house too! I wasn’t commissioned to photograph this, and I wish I could be outside longer to photograph them in the bounce house…but I was too busy socializing with the mommies inside and I was bitten to pieces every time I step foot outside without a long sleeve on. Anyways, here are the pics I did manage to capture.

Lauren asked me to photograph her 30th birthday party and I was so honored. Her family is just gorgeous and they are so hospitable. Everyone embraced me into their home and a great time had by all. Lauren’s dress is to die for, and so is her cake! 😉
