Gotta love stories of kids overcoming huge obstacles and that is exactly what little Nathan here did.  With a long 1st year, he has come out of heart surgery stronger then ever and all kinds of cute noises are coming out of his mouth.  His mom wanted some photos on the beach with some props and his cute spiky hair.  With his sister along, we managed to get some great last minute photos right before his 1st birthday party.  He even got to put his feet in the ocean for the first time ever.  Congrats little guy, us Nathan’s have to...

Church weddings seem like a more rare thing these days up in California with all their outside venues and perfect weather.  But there has to be something said about the beauty and peacefulness inside when you walk down the isle, see the stained glass shining the lights across the pews, and when you say I do at the alter and go in for that first kiss.  Lisa and Louis had an amazing wedding in Arcadia and lots of loving friends and family there to witness it all.  With a beautiful courtyard, we also got some amazing shots with perfect...

Sandeep and Zoya’s Mehndi celebration was an amazing explosion of color, dancing, food, and fun.  We started by getting some awesome sunset portraits with the couple up in the hills with amazing views.  Decorated with beautiful henna, both Sandy and Zoya were all smiles.  The scenery of Arizona was so amazing and it was such a beautiful day, not too hot, not too cold.  As guests arrived, Sandeep entered with the drumming and a parade.  Shortly after, Zoya entered as well as the two exchanged greetings and the music and dancing...
