rebecca + brett: maternity session at the enchanting matador beach in malibu

Family & Lifestyle
October 4, 2016

Rebecca is a talented interior designer + wedding planner. We met planning our own styled shoots almost a year ago.

Her and her hubby Brett are expecting their first son + I was so happy to shoot a few photos on a quiet morning at Matador State Park on the Malibu Coast.

This little hidden gem in Malibu is somewhere I’ve always wanted to shoot and this morning proved to be perfect. The rushing water, crashing waves, hints of cool and golden blue from the sky set the scene and I let these two take it away. Show-offs.

I adore this session and can’t wait for the little one to arrive!

[sunrise] Somewhere in Dallas: a girl + her horse
A girl and her horse. I was thrilled to shoot a horse for the first time (professionally!)- what a thrill. These creatures are so big and so majestic and so unpredictably lovely. We braved the 29 degree Texas morning and headed out to the stables. The grass had a crisp layer of frost and the pond was waking up to a stream of misty fog. The sun rose just in time to start the day and warm our frozen fingers and toes. Reba, the horse, was happy to take a morning trot around the pen. We entertained and were able to pose her with the help of carrots and peppermint oat treats- which I recovered from my jeans while unpacking last week. S ...

My Sunny Afternoon with Moochi the Miniature Cow
It is quite evident that I love animals so I couldn't have been more thrilled to get the opportunity to meet a very special miniature cow named Moochi. My friend Tim and his wife Tara acquired a unique type of pet this summer all the way from my homeland up in Minnesota. The two are also animal lovers and fell in love with cows while visiting Switzerland and hearing their bells ringing along the grassy countryside (they are crazy world travelers). Knowing that it was a bit too impractical to have a full size bovine friend, they did some research and opted for a miniature version. Moochi is a 90% Scottish Highland Mini Cow that lives up ...
