    My baby is officially FIVE today.

    Happy 5th Birthday to my Holden… I remember thinking he was never going to come out, almost 2.5 weeks over due and the quickest labor ever (2 hours) he finally he made his debut. Holden is such a caring, sweet, good natured little boy. Loves going to the movies, baseball, skateboarding and his big brother Parker, Sadie our lab, & can eat an entire pizza by himself (no joke)

    Has to give me at least 20 hugs before I can leave him at school, tells me how beautiful and pretty I am just when I need to hear it the most, Prays for everyone and everything , has the best random knock knock jokes even though they don’t always make sense:)

    Loves to skateboard and do “guy stuff” with Dad and brother whenever he can. He is such a blessing to our family, I know God has big plans for him! I really cannot believe he is 5, time truly flies.

    We Love you so much Holdie!

    Over ten years ago Keenan asked Lana to be his girlfriend which has now blossomed into an amazing love story, they are getting married this fall at Rio Bravo Country Club. During our session the dark clouds hung over us with sunlight peeking through somewhat making our lighting perfection. I just love how colorful the day became for their engagement session, they totally rocked it too, I can feel their love in these images.


    We look forward to being a part of your big day, enjoy some previews from our session.

    Chris & Ashlee met in High school over six years ago through mutual friends, they dated over five years when Chris finally popped the big question to Ashlee, Will you marry me? Ashlee wore a lovely fitted wedding gown, the guys wore classic black tux’s with white accents, a classic black and white wedding.

    Surrounded by family and friends on December 20th, 2014 the pair recited their vows to one another in a beautiful outdoor winter ceremony at the KLEA Hall in Bakersfield, Ca. The couple then celebrated and danced the night away with their wedding guests. It was such a privilege to witness Ashlee’s wedding and of course be asked to photograph my cousins special day, you looked abosultuely beautiful Ashlee!

    Wishing Mr. & Mrs. Smith a life time of health, happiness and love!

    Looking back on 2014 I can truly say it was a wonderful year of weddings, ending 2014 with my childhood friend Kristine’s wedding day was truly amazing. I’ve witnessed Kristine and Erik grow together from kids, to adults and now husband and wife. They are a true example of love, friendship and commitment, something that is so rare now days. They married on 12.13.14 on a crisp winter day, I admit I was a little worried about the rain (I mean we only had one of the biggest West Coast storms just days prior to their wedding) thankfully the sun was beaming adding the most delicate light at the time of photos. It was perfect.

    The couple married at El Tango hall with an intimate gathering of family, & friends. Their wedding was perfect and we had such a wonderful time witnessing their special day.  I want to personally thank Kristine & Erik for allowing Matt and I to capture your wedding day, we love you guys and wish you a lifetime of happiness, love, and health! (& lots of little Hertin babies;)


    Happy New Year!
