Hello, happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! April and May is what I affectionately/stressfully call 'birthday season'. It seems like every other person in my life is a Taurus... my hubby, a bunch of my best friends, a couple cousins, my mom-in-law, even ME.... ahhh! Wish me luck as I try to fit all the fun in and stay caught up on work. It's always a crazy juggle, but so fun :) Any other Tauruses out there? Apparently we should be friends :)
Anyway... just check out these cutie little guys I got to photograph recently. I mean, really? I'm in love with them!
Those squishy lips!!!
The many expressions of Carter:
As always, thanks for looking!! Have a great week :)
It's been such an honor to be trusted with my client's most important memories and moments. When I first started my photography business I don't think I quite realized how amazing it would be see two people in love go from engaged to married and all the way to parenthood. I've been so so lucky to witness such life changing events and love the relationships gained from being a part of them.
I first met Char'lee and JV at a Starbucks in 2010. Back then we were just focused on their engagement photos. Who'd have thought that three years later I'd be photographing their daughter. Time flies!
Here's a little peak of the last few years:
Fast forward to now. Char'lee and JV just welcomed their little girl, Mackenzie into the world. She's nothing short of perfect... a perfect blend of both of them. I just wanted to squeeze her little cheeks! We started the day with sister photos :) Hershey is so good with Mackenzie...
I just love the headbands Char'lee found on Etsy! They're made by Little Hip Squeaks.
She's such a pretty little lady:
I love her nursery!
This photo makes me smile extra big... it looks like Mackenzie is doing Zoolander's Blue Steel :)
Daddy got a little smile:
Hershey didn't want to pose with everyone else... she had to be front and center :)
And last, but not least, Char'lee and Mackenzie. Char'lee, you are absolutely beautiful. You're going to be an amazing Mother, I'm so excited to see you and JV raise your little girl throughout the years. Thanks for being such amazing clients and letting me photograph all your best moments :)
This family photo shoot was in an amazing Mid Century Modern house in Hollywood. I seriously could have shot in there all day... the light, landscaping, and architecture were so inspiring!
And then there was Baron... he is one cute kid:
Dad uses this house as an office and gallery for his art collection... Baron likes to use it for climbing :)
His crawling 'style' is pretty cute :)
You can't see her, but Grandma was putting on quite a show for Baron behind me...
Omigosh, he is just perfect :)
Baron's outfits were beyond adorable... mom did a great job picking them out.
One of my favorites of the day... don't know why exactly. Maybe it's the simple lines and textures.
Mr. Serious for a second...
What a little model! He looks so GQ :)
He had so much fun pounding on the keyboard here... I hope he didn't break it!
Give me a white wall and some window side light and I'm a happy camper... add a cute kid and I'm in heaven!
To end the session Baron got to dig into his very own cake... he was a bit put off at the beginning, but Mom showed him what to do...
... but 2 seconds later he was over it! I love his pouty face!
And that's all for now! I have a few weddings to share with you later this week... keep your eye out!
You've heard me say it before, but I just love repeat clients :) I've been photographing this family since Mom and Dad got married in 2009 and watching them grow into a family of 4 has been nothing short of amazing.
Big sister, Sophia, just loves Kennedy:
My favorite of the day and I can't even take full credit for it! Sophia came wondering into the room and asked if she could be in the photo too...
I just love a simple portrait like this:
Aren't they the sweetest family?
As always, thanks for looking!
Livienne is growing so fast! It really seems like I just did her newborn photos last month! Here are a few of my favorite photos from her 9 month photo shoot :)
I love all the facial expressions she goes through:
Jazzy is such a sweet older sister...
Livi was feeling very serious while I was there... still adorable though!
And, of course, we had to get both girls in Dad's car for a few!
And that's all for now! Keep an eye out for Livi's first year shoot coming up in April :)
