Did you know my sweet nephew is almost seven months old now?! He had a big day at the beginning of this month. He was baptized!! It was a big day for me too – I’m his godmother. :D
It was a great weekend home with my family and I loved getting to spend so much time with this little guy. I feel super blessed to be chosen and trusted as his godmother by his parents. My prayers are many, but for now, my regular influence is limited to the board books and little lamb I gifted him since I live sort of far away. I found some great books on Amazon – a huge relief after being seriously disappointed in the baby/toddler options at Barnes & Noble.
I’m so glad my sister sends me videos and pictures all the time because I feel like I’m missing so much. He unstoppable now – crawling and starting to pull himself up! WHAT?! Baby boy, you’re just a BABY! Stop growing so quickly! :)
Now that he’s figured out crawling though, he does not have any interest in sitting still for pictures for auntie. :) My camera was way too interesting and he knew he could get it. I love this age for photos though. Plus that Baptism outfit?! I can’t even. And the bonnet. Oh goodness. Literally cannot. But, I will apologize to his future self though ’cause that was ALL auntie’s doing. I am a sucker for the bonnet, even if he does look like a little pilgrim. :) Just! So! Dang! CUTE! Come on, it’s true. Admit it.

I had the pleasure of photographing these sweet boys this past weekend. I’ve met big brother (A) a few times and we took pictures last spring, but I was excited to finally see him as a brother and get his sweet little brother in front of my camera for the first time. Z is just over 7 weeks and I was so impressed with how well he did!
It’s definitely a bit more challenging to get two wee ones (A is recently 2) and especially when the baby is past that total milk drunk newborn stage. They just don’t love being “posed” as much and they’re certainly more alert. :)
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon! A to Z and certainly complete. <3

We’ll pretend first that I’m not several months behind in blogging. Then, we’ll pretend like the year hasn’t raced by in epic fashion. Lastly, we’ll pretend that this beautiful family lives much closer to me so that I can see them more often. Deal? Deal.
This little man turned ONE last week and I am SO glad that I got to celebrate his ONEderful little life with his ONEderful parents and other awesome friends and family. He has changed so much since I last saw him… and even more since we took these. My how they grow!
I think my favorite part of it all was coming full circle from the engagement photos we took so long ago. These were the photos that signified and celebrate their decision to become a family and now they aren’t just husband and wife, but mother and father.
It’s beautiful. :) I feel so fortunate to watch the love continue to grow.

While I was home over Easter, I got to visit with Hannah and little O. It was great visiting and catching up. We had a quick little session with both of them at the gazebo near their house–head shots for Mama and some six month portraits for O. She’s definitely grown quite a lot since the last time I saw her and I loved getting to see her show off her new tricks – rocking back and forth on her knees and sitting up so stable and strong.
And as it turns out, the little angel wrapped in pink looks really good in blue. Sweet little O has the most stunning blue eyes. They are soulful and sweet, twinkling and bright, captivating and yes… smiling. She has the most smiley eyes. She speaks volumes with those beautiful eyes.
She gets them from her mama. :)
As always, it was wonderful to see you both – love from San Diego!
Can’t wait to see you again soon!

By now, you should be quite familiar with Abby and James as they’ve been on the blog a number times – showcasing their beauty, love, and hilarity in a variety of stages and fashions. It’s taken me awhile to put this blog post together… I’ve had a lack of words to describe my feelings on my most recent subject. I feel like I should let him speak for himself in his tiny, adorable baby way.
I will say this though: Congratulations on your amazing son my dear friends! I cannot wait to watch him grow and hopefully our first little photo session didn’t scar him and make him hate Auntie Bree forever. :) I can only imagine how much greatness lies within him.
P.S. The adorable elf hat you see Liam sporting was made by my talented friend Tatiana – check her out at Sweetheart Stitches on Etsy! :)

Last Sunday, I met this beautiful family at the entrance to Balboa Park Trails and we nearly had to call it a day before we even got started. The drizzle began, the clouds in the sky threatened, and the forecast said RAIN. Yikes!
But it wasn’t raining just yet and I am so thankful that the H family was willing to adventure down the trail with their two small boys. I had so much fun wandering the trail with you all. Watching the boys swing, pick flowers, find rocks, and race across bridges. They are a joy… and the two of your are wonderful parents. And S? I still maintain you are a total rock star adventuring through the trail, over rocky creek beds, and up marshy hills in those heels. Seriously… especially when all of your boys were equipped with sensible shoes. :) But, with two curious and energetic boys, I’m sure you have many, many more adventures to come.

Christmas time is here again! And you may be thinking, “But Auntie Mame, it’s one week from Thanksgiving Day now!” But, and maybe it’s just me, I “need a little Christmas, right this very minute.” Yes, I “need a little Christmas now.”
Plus, who can resist beautiful children in adorable clothes? Not me!
I’ve said it a million times before, but I adore these girls. I had such a wonderful time with these little ladies at the gorgeous Old Poway Park. It was a fabulous location and I can’t wait to go back again… maybe next time when the little lady doesn’t want to eat every rock and leaf in sight. I’m so glad the weather decided to cooperate for us on Sunday.
Liz, I hope you love the pictures and they continue to bring you joy and memories for many more Christmases to come.

The holiday season is here and photo sessions are increasing in leaps and bounds. Here’s a sneak peek from Sunday’s session – expect the full post later this evening or tomorrow.
And let’s discuss the cuteness of the boots, can we please?
“All you girls stand up
Put your hands up
Come on lets rock
Gonna go all night
Gonna watch the dust fly
Show em what we got
Come on lets take a ride on top of the world
All you soul shaking heartbreakin little cowgirls”
