  1. Creative Fill: Dylan Sido

    24 Apr 2017

    It is always a blast creating with other photographers, but man I love getting together with Dylan because he’s so artsy and pushes me out of my comfort zone. We met for coffee and chatted a bit, then we wandered around San Juan Capistrano and snapped some photos. He wanted…


  2. Ashleigh // Newmark Models

    09 Apr 2017

    Ashleigh and I had a spontaneous shoot recently! We headed to Noguchi Garden in Costa Mesa only to find out it is no longer open to photography. They now only allow cell phone photography or require a permit for photography with a professional camera. Such a bummer because we had…


  3. Creative Fill: Mason Trent

    22 Feb 2017

    It is such a blast working with some of my best friends! Mason and I first met a couple of years ago, but it wasn’t until this past summer we became really good friends. I love days with Mason and always look forward to spending time with him. The first…


  4. Headshots: Krystal

    09 Aug 2016

    Krystal recently contacted me about headshots. She didn’t want “basic white backdrop” headshots. She wanted something different; something that shows who she is. We met up at a park in Orange County and got some great photos! Enjoy! 


  5. Blogger: Angela of RunwayDoneMyWay

    16 Feb 2016

    It’s always wonderful to work with a new blogger. I was excited to meet Angela of RunwayDoneMyWay & find out she lives in Newport, which is so close to me! We met up in Newport and shot around her apartment complex. All of the pieces pictured were designed by her.…

    Model: Katerina c/o Bella LA Makeup: Veronica Villegas Photographer: Kara Nixon I LOVE Katerina, so I was beyond excited to get to work with her and her mom in Laguna Beach a couple of weeks ago. Katerina is basically wonder woman! She does anything and everything and is SO GOOD…


  7. Creative Fill: Blake

    02 Feb 2016

    Soooooo sick. All right, all right.. So flashback to a few weeks ago when I talked about creative fill (if you missed out, read the blog post HERE), I defined it as:  growing, connecting, learning something new, getting refueled, gathering ideas, mentoring, giving and gaining advice + so many more


  8. Kaylie + Stefan

    I’m so excited for these two! They’re getting married in 18 days!!!


  9. Kelsey + Matt

    21 Nov 2015

    It’s safe to say I’m back in California AND these two are married! I mean what? Can’t believe these two are married. Unfortunately, I missed out on their special day, but I figured now was a good time to release their engagement photos. Kels and I have been friends for…


  10. Leslie {Orange County Portrait}

    Model: Cameron of BMG Models Photographer: Kara Nixon Cameron reached out to me after his agent told him about me. It took a few weeks to plan a shoot, but we made it happen, even amongst busy schedules and little light to shoot. He drove all the way to OC…


  12. LETGOdwork Summer Lookbook

    14 Oct 2014

    I am just releasing the photos from the summer lookbook for LETGOdwork here on my blog. This was a time consuming blog to put together, as there were so many great images to choose from! It took quite some time to narrow it down. The main reason I am posting…


  13. Fall & Holiday Mini Sessions

    09 Oct 2014

    I am currently booking for fall & holiday mini sessions. There sessions are 20 minutes and open to families, friends, roommates, couples, siblings, and there is even limited availability to solo sessions. These are completely affordable, especially during a money-spending time. If these dates don’t work for you, feel free…


  14. Andrei

    24 Sep 2014

    Model: Andrei Lis Photographed & Styled by Kara Nixon I find the best shoots are the spontaneous ones where you have a location in mind or a certain look and you just kind of let it happen. Andrei and I made a trip down to Laguna Beach and just went…
