So here we have lots of cuteness, some pink camouflage, a great setting and cake; what more could a girl turning one ask for! Thy stylized cake smash was fun, we might on Annie’s 1st birthday to wonder the Morongo Preserve, capture some pictures and eat cake. She wasn’t the biggest fan of cake but she looked good hanging out with it :)
OMG the best job in the world! These two were super cute together and couldn’t take their eyes off of their new son. Away from family as so many of our military families are they were looking to commemorate this time in their lives and share a peek into their new family. We even caught some great baby smiles at the end that will melt the strongest of hearts!
When Lucille’s mommy contacted me about scheduling a Cake Smash session I was super excited. With ideas in hand we scheduled her session for a gorgeous local preserve and park; one that the family frequents often so it made for a perfect backdrop to memorialize this occasion.
I met Lucille’s mom through business dealings about two years ago so I was lucky enough to see her transition from wife to mom as her belly grew. We lost touch for a bit but when she emailed me to capture the First Birthday images I couldn’t wait.
Lucille with her beautiful porcelain skin was delightful to photograph as we moved through a few different set ups. She definitely wanted to be on the move and was very serious the entire time we were shooting. With family all over, including Canada, I know all be excited to see this stuffed animal party and Lucille’s cheek. When not looking at her beyond poofy cheeks you may be caught in those blue eyes. I know I was. She wasn’t a huge fan of the cake which in the long run always makes mom happy she played along for us so we could get some adorable shots with lots of facial expressions I am sure will make everyone smile.
Thank you again Dusastre family for letting me capture this exciting day!
I love maternity sessions; I love babies so I was super excited when Katrina and Will decided to let me capture their new adventure. Since they are here on a short military tour they wanted to make sure to capture the beauty of the desert; the birth place of their new life together as mom and dad! With baby due to arrive soon be on the look out for more gorgeous images of this family.
One of the best things with my job is getting to watch families grow throughout the years! This is a larger family dynamic but several of them I have worked with before; this time there were more itty bitties and new spouses! With everyone visiting from all over this was a great opportunity to get some Grandma shots and grandbaby pictures. Hope you all love them!!
My photography has given me so many blessings and in this session I get to count so many more. Meet my bestie and her hubby; they truly are some of the best people we know. Over the years we have become family and are so excited to watch them in this next adventure. With Jemma Grace on the way I am glad I could capture the joy of this time for them. I have to say though there are always more bloopers in the Faust sessions because they think it is funny to make crazy faces and be strange but what are friends for right? Don’t worry I save them all for blackmail later :) Love you Faust Family!!
I have had the pleasure of watching this young lady grow up the last few years. Jubilee made the most out of her high school career as she played soccer, sang in the Select Choir and graduated at the top of her class academically. Choosing stay local for the start of college then adventuring off to a bright future I am sure. I am excited to share this beautiful session and person!
I got to capture this family from bump to baby; aren’t they gorgeous! Mom loves everything girly, anything pink, pearls, lace so we had a great time incorporating all those elements into this newborn session! Anslee wanted to stay awake for all her beautiful images; once we got her into this deep sleep we snapped away capturing many gorgeous sweet images. Congratulations Santiago family!
8 month old twins, mom and dad, the park what a good morning. These two weren’t too sure that they wanted to participate in our photo session but through some playing and fun they got on board. They couldn’t have been cuter and this session was pretty awesome since this family was just reunited after a long deployment. These little guys were all about mommy and daddy, big smiles, some shoulder time, the swings and we captured a little piece of their story!
Maggie and Greg were a fun spirited couple that wanted to capture their relationship in an image. We wondered through the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve, making Greg feel a little at home with the marshy setting and we captured some great photos. They were playful, affectionate and had some fun in front of the lens. Enjoy!
