Oh man, this kid cracks me up. His joy and unceasing happiness is contagious. All of his expressions had me laughing out loud as I edited his photos so I just had to put together this little animation to document all the little moments in between. See, now don't you love him too? :) A small reason I got to take his pictures this day was just because I hadn't been able to get him in front of my camera in such a very long time. But the second reason, the biggest reason, was to make this announcement to the world
It's always amazing to see friends you've known for forever become parents. Brittany and I have known each other since we were seven years old and little Brownie Girl Scouts! She met the love of her life just after Andy and I got married in 2007
So far, I have yet to have a newborn sleep for even half of a photography session with me. Baby Raymond slept the whole time! And his mama and I are quite thankful for that because we had all sorts of fun poses and props to use! Hope you enjoy scrolling through these sweet favorites of mine of this most adorable baby boy!
Years and years ago, like 12 years ago, this loud and energetic and FUN girl was in a dance class I assisted in. Fast forward a few years and I come to find out she actually went to the church and was friends with my hubby and my new found group of friends. We were even in our friends wedding in the fall of 2012 together! And fast foward another couple years and here were are on a gorgeous summer day photographing her new family of 3! It's amazing what God does in our lives, the gifts he gives from friends to family. Hope you enjoy these photos of little Remi and her loving parents, Gillian and Drew. And thanks Auntie Yoyo for assisting us that day, I am ever so thankful! We started with my version of baby photos, outside with blankets
Little Miss Amelia turned one earlier this month! And for Mia's birthday photos, we wanted to head down to the beach to take photos that we could use as decoration at her Under the Sea birthday party. I know that she's pointing at her grandma behind me, but I like to think she's saying "I'm one!" (P.S. Thanks Grandma Kim for being THE BEST assistant ever!) I love this girl's smile! She just loves life, and is curious about everything! She has the heart for adventure! Once we got closer to the beach itself, it was time for a wardrobe change! Rachel made Mia these adorable crowns for the photoshoot
Rachel and I had been racking our brains trying to come up with something unique for the little miss' 9 month photos. A few times Rachel had mentioned wanting to get a photo of Amelia in an old wash tub—like a photos she had of herself as a child—so that inspired our outdoor bubble bath session! But first, we had to get a few photos in her Easter dress! What I love most about having these sessions every 3 months is capturing the ever changing personality of a child. Mia loves to clap and gives these amazing crinkle nose smiles! And for awhile now she's been standing up—when holding on to anything she can, but holding mama's hand is definitely the sweetest! And now time for the bath photos! Again, I love how these capture Mia so perfectly. She's so observant, always looking down to explore everything within reach. And of course, once that new found object is within her little hands, in the mouth it goes! These last few remind me so much of Mia's newborn session when she would not leave her mama's arms. So so sweet! Baby Mia
Oh this sweet baby girl! Born just before Christmas, her mama and I planned this little mini shoot and got together right in their backyard (gotta love So Cal in December). She wore homemade knitted beanies and booties and just kept flashing us those beautiful eyes of hers! Enjoy these favorites of mine of sweet little Violet at 2 weeks old
Just days before Christmas, our friends BJ and Melissa—along with their little family—were in town and we were able to get together to take some family photos! My hubby and BJ have been friends since forever, BJ was in our wedding and my hubby in theirs
