These wonderful souls are headed to the East Coast after a decade, and then some, in sunny San Diego. To remember their time here in San Diego we spent an afternoon swimming in golden grasses and sunshine.

San Diego will miss you, and the East is lucky to have you.

Overjoyed we were able to carve out time to make this session happen.




Spending time with April and Michael reminded me of a summer day in my childhood. Exploring the outdoors, running in fields and playing in streams.

They were in their element, too and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend time with these two.

Can’t wait to share their wedding, too. Look for that coming soon.

In the meantime, enjoy…


California’s golden fields and rich sunlight get me every time. But it’s the beautiful faces of Ivy and Josh that make this session special.

And thank you to Ever After Events for the introduction.
