Happy Baptism Baby Boy!

October 12, 2015

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.

God bless you every second of every day. Love you so much <3

Fall Mini Sessions Are Coming!

September 14, 2015

Hello all!

Fall mini sessions are coming to San Diego… WHERE in San Diego is still a little up in the air as the expected El Niño has could certainly dampen the situation. We will do our best to persevere and still get those Fall portraits done though, right? I’d love for you to join me! Please email me if you’re interested.

Mini Sessions 2015 - Fall

A to Z

September 3, 2015

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

I flew to Sacramento Friday night to meet and photograph the beautiful Lily Bug on Saturday morning. She was such a good, sweet little baby. I have so many words to come, but for now, just a sneak peek. Welcome to the world baby girl, you are so very loved!

The Little Rose

April 17, 2010

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of photographing my friend’s baby girl. They’re moving away next week… oh how I’ll miss them! I really loved the duo tone processing on these photos and I just adore those close ups. I’m a sucker for full face shots. I’ve chosen just a handful of favorites to share with you this evening.
