Hello from Temecula Lavender Field ‘Fork & Plow’

Hello friends!

If you’ve been following along, you can probably tell that I have a love/hate relationship with social media and I can go a whole year or more without updating or posting anything. (Case in point, it took me a while to figure out this blog because the interface has changed since I last used it ha!) To be honest, a lot of time I don’t know what to say and I feel weird just putting up pictures. But I need to get over that mindset and power on, so please pardon me if you see me sometimes with a lengthy post and sometimes with only an emoji. 😀 Since having kids, they have been my main focus and photography was just part time. I don’t advertise or put myself out there, so I’m especially thankful to still have commissions through word of mouth, referrals, and repeat clients. Now that both kids are in school, I’m excited to do MORE!

Of course my first “come-back” post is to bombard you with pictures of moi (taken by hubby 100% on film) at Fork & Plow Lavender Farm in Temecula. I can’t tell you how crazy excited I get at a lavender farm no matter if it’s the 1st or 10th time I’ve been there. This farm sells designated slots for photoshoots starting June and it’s only for a few fleeting weeks, so if this tickles your fancy, let’s set up something soon!

Since we’re still on the topic of flowers, I’m thinking of holding photo sessions in a sweet pea field, possibly in April/May so it’s perfect for Mother’s Day gift! Email me if you want to be notified about this.

Cheers to 2023 and I hope we get to connect, whether it’s for work or play or just a random hello to chat about our favorite shoes and flowers!

Fall Photoshoot :: Orange County Portrait Photographer

With the changing of the seasons, Kara wanted to do a casual fall-inspired photoshoot. But living in Socal, this is pretty much as good as it gets, especially with the mild weather this year. Yellow leaves and fall breezes, where art thou? I’m a summer girl through and through but lately I’ve been wishing for a drastic dip in the temperature so I can pull out gloves, scarves, and 303853511 coats that I have. I want bundling and cuddling weather already! 😉 Hope you enjoy these photos and oh hey, isn’t Kara so pretty? 😉
