Two sunrise session blog posts in a row?! Yes, that’s right! I ordered a film camera from Japan a few weeks ago and had to of course – test it out ASAP (oh those pesky international return periods). I asked the SBSN Facebook community for help and Tim and Kim came to the rescue. These […]

I’m so excited to share Sasha and Andrew’s engagement session at the L.A. Arboretum. I initially met these two early in their plans, they hadn’t yet chosen a venue and due to COVID, put planning on hold. We decided to wait a bit for their engagement session as we wanted it to be safe. Well, […]


Can I start by saying… I LOVE THESE TWO!! Jordyn and Brandon were challenged by wind and cold weather during their engagement session but that didn’t stop them from having fun, from relaxing and even enjoying some of that salty ocean water!
