documenting our family life in southern california

capturing everyday beauty 

welcome

Pretty Smitten began as a creative outlet after the birth of my first child in 2008. What started as a sweet little Etsy shop has now grown into a full Southern California Life + Style site featuring home decor, food, entertaining and wellness content. I believe there is beauty in the simplified, and I strive to create a beautiful happy home where we can stop to enjoy the little things. I hope within this blog you'll find a little inspiration for your own home life as well.

I'm also now thrilled to be offering fine art lifestyle photography. Documenting love in all forms is truly a gift...sweet little newborns, expecting mamas, families and couples...photos are our only "pause button."  Learn more about Elizabeth Johnson Photography by clicking below!
