I know I've said it a million times, but nothing beats seeing a couple go from engaged to expecting, to parenthood... it's the best part of my job :) I've been lucky enough to see this family grow from the very start and can't believe how big Devyn already is... time flies :)
Devyn has an amazing couple of grandmothers... they love her to bits!
It was crazy, but we managed to wrangle in Mom, Dad, Devyn, AND the dogs for a couple shots...
Devyn's first shoulder ride:
She's so very serious and observant...
One of her favorite gadgets from Grandma :)
Hehe, I love her 'Pebbles' hair here:
I was holding a tennis ball up... works for babies and puppies, haha.
Love her expressive little face... she is just beautiful!
Hello! I don't know about you, but I am loving the crisp, cool weather lately... even though the finicky rainy forecast is destroying my shooting schedule :( You'd think weather reports would be more accurate this day in age... oh well.
Today's super cute photo shoot is of the Rivas family... just look at this perfect little face:
Only in Southern California could we shoot a holiday session at the beach in late October... with summer clothes!
Seriously IN LOVE with this little jumper from Gap :)
There's just something about when babies sit like this... it's soooooo cute!
Chubby legs and fingers... and if you look closely you'll see her cute little toe peaking out of her shoe :)
Lines and shadows...
The final (I'm partial to the bloopers, myself):
Daddy's outfit choice:
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!!!
Yay, it's Friday! And it's cold and rainy outside... I'm a pretty happy camper :)
Today I'm featuring one of my favorite families... the Hendersons! I'm beyond excited to be working with these guys again. I was able to photograph little Halliday's first year of life and am so honored that I was asked to do the same for their next little kiddo.
Halliday's eyes are such an amazing bright blue!
She's definitely happiest when she's moving... she kept me on my toes :)
Baby number two is almost ready to come out and play... can't wait!
Beth is one beautiful mom-to-be...
Hehe, had to post the mustache one :)
While Halliday took a quick snack break we grabbed some photos of just mom and dad...
She managed to sneak her way into them, though :)
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!!
Hello and happy Thursday!! Now that I've caught up on my weddings until December you'll be seeing lots of holiday family photos around these parts :)
Meet the Minto Family:
My favorite of the day... I love laughing photos :)
Goodness, these kids are beautiful!
Don't you love their outfits? The layering is perfect!
That's all for now... thanks for stopping by :)
Hello! Happy Friday...and Happy November! I'm so excited for the holidays and cold weather to be here. Time to bust out the scarves, baking recipes, and wrapping paper :)
Wedding season is wrapping up and I'll be posting quite a bit more family photo shoots in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, here is Krystle and Johnny's amazing wedding day:
Krystle's cork shoes!!! I love them!
Krystle's maid of honor was the biggest help :)
Johnny watching his bride approaching the aisle... such a priceless moment!
Last summer I photographed Johnny's sister's wedding and their dad officiated that one as well. What a special thing to give your kids.
You may kiss the bride!
In loving memory...
Omigosh, can you believe this little lady of theirs? Emma is such a sweetheart!
This next one is my 2nd favorite photo of the day :)
It was super bright outside... I was so happy to have this giant tree offer a bit of shade
My favorites of the day!
First dance! Krystle's sister sang it for them. I love personal touches like that!
Emma was so cute during the mother/son dance :)
