All the way from sunshine-filled Southern California, this beach family shoot on aptly named ‘Summerland’ beach from Tenth & Grace has totally captured our hearts.  The beach always provides a perfect backdrop for any portrait session, especially when complimented with pale clothing and a free-spirited family!  As much as I adore the cute shots capturing the love this family have for each other, I also love the couple shots with mum and dad as a lovely reminder that sometimes you need to take time out for you two too!

Vanessa is a talented photographer in Southern California, so it was a huge honor to photograph her adorable family! We met at a secluded beach in Summerland, which is just south of Santa Barbara. The beach was the perfect spot to capture their loving, natural interaction in that beautiful light that California is so famous for! Often times photographers who are mothers don’t get in the camera with their families very often (because they are usually the ones taking the picture), so I’m glad I was able to capture so many photos of Vanessa and her two children. This time when they are young really flies by so quickly, which is why I’m so passionate about capturing portraits of mothers with their children!


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
