Orange County Wedding Photographer | A Winter Romance Styled Shoot

Styled shoots are so much fun for me. It gives me an opportunity to photograph something I wouldn't typically shoot and in the process, I get to meet some of the most wonderful people in the industry. So when Los Angeles wedding planner, Vanessa of Vanessa Michelle Co. reached out to me several months ago, I knew that we just had to do a shoot together. The opportunity arose and I just jumped on it. We photographed the shoot at the stunning Pasadena Museum of History which would make the most amazing backdrop for a Pasadena Wedding (which by the way, if you're having a wedding here, please contact me). The shoot turned out so beautiful and it completely exceeded my expectations. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot:

Rosa & Eric | A Temecula Farm Engagement Session

Temecula Engagement Session at Two Sisters Farm by Damaris Mia Photography

My sweet and wonderful friend, Vanessa of Vanessa Michelle Co., referred Rosa & Eric to me. They were such a joy to work with -- I can only imagine how much fun we'll be having on their wedding day! Rosa & Eric wanted a farm/ranch setting for their engagement session so we headed out to the beautiful Two Sisters Farm in Temecula. It was my first time shooting in a setting like this and also first time shooting in Temecula so I was extra excited! We had a blast together and I'm looking forward to seeing these two again in April! 

Trying to find a balance in the midst of it all

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Oh my goodness... I've become that person who neglects their blog! I used to be really good at updating my photography blog, but.... that was before the twins and before I started Southern California Bride. I need to get back in the habit of blogging consistently even if it's just once a week -- I need to be consistent about it.

I've reached a point where I feel like I'm I don't know which direction to look anymore. So much to do and deal with -- and -- not wanting to disappoint anyone. Trying to do it all and royally failing at it. But I'm constantly picking myself up because I don't have the time to sit in the dust. So I have changes to make in my life -- changes to create a balance -- to prioritize the important stuff and to stop stressing about things that don't even matter. To create a system that works for me. I don't know what that is going to look like but I'm sure eventually I will find some sort of balance -- whether that means blogging for SCB only on specific days during the week, exercising on certain days, etc... I need to find a balance. Or else I will end up going crazy!

Anyway, here is a sneak peek from a recent shoot I did. Cannot wait to share more!
