Homecomings, homecomings, and more homecomings! What a great way to spend a portion of my April. I love everything about homecomings, well maybe sometimes not the long waits, but since these two waited 7 long months for this kiss I don’t think I have too much to say about that. Jessica contacted me before her hubby even left to make sure she captured her first homecoming as a military spouse. As we waited the excitement grew and grew, as the buses came into view she did everything she could to hold back the happy tears but that was not going to happen. As soon as she spotted her man she was off. Welcome home Marine so glad you are together once again!
Once again this business has put my path with some just beautiful people and I don’t just mean in front of my camera. These two were so fun and endearing to shoot with for their maternity session in the Morongo Preserve and I can not wait for that baby girl with all the pink lace and pearls, that I am sure she will be wearing in the hospital, to get here. Photogenic and full of ideas we had fun venturing through the paths and chronicling this exciting time in this family’s life. Their love and enjoyment of each other obvious in the way they looked at one another and were playful together. Also noted through our communications and time together their intense love for this little one who is about to bless their world, their families and God. Thank you for sharing this time with me Santiago Family!
This cute little family wanted to make sure they took a piece of the desert with them when they left so we spent some time taking photos at the Indian Cove Amphitheatre. Their 7 month old sweetheart wasn’t sure he was too excited about our plans but gave several good images with a great setting. I wish them luck in all their future endeavors and I hope these images remind them of their one time home.
There is always a special place in my heart for homecomings. I will say it every time there is so much energy and emotion in the air; it’s exciting, it’s nerve wracking, and it’s all about being back together again. These girls were no different. The 3 year old full of energy while she ran and played waiting with her mom full of excitement and nerves. This Marine was able to sneak up behind us in the sea of camouflage and surprise his girls!
Okay so can you see oh my cuteness for this family and these smiles? Our cheeks hurt by the time we were done because how do you not smile back at these two. Moriah contacted me wanting to get a session done for her family and we were able to get together in the Morongo Preserve a few Saturdays ago. Walking the trails, taking in the setting and a beautiful, fun loving family always makes for a great day. We took the time, with the girls help of course, to get some nice shots of mom and dad too. In love with their family, each other and their girls; it shows!! Thank you Thompson family for letting hang out with you for the afternoon!
These two were so smiley and giggly through out their entire session you couldn’t help but feel their joy! Both mesmerized by their little boy it was a absolute joy to capture this time in their lives. The little man was an awesome subject too, cute, smiley and enjoying the outdoors he gave us lots of great shots.
I have been so lucky to photograph family through several life events recently. I was there for the wedding, the baby bump, the newborn and a few first Easter shots; one of the greatest things for me as a photographer is watching and getting to know families through my lens. I am excited to share this newborn session and about 3 week old session for William’s first Easter!
I love that I get to meet new people all the time in my business and this day was no different. We met at the Preserve for a relaxed family session. This little lady was so sweet and seemed to enjoy our little walk through the beautiful paths. Her best smiles came from playing with mom and dad! She was looking too cool in her cute sunglasses and beautiful dress.
Nichole asked me to document the return of her Marine and I of course was excited to do so. I love homecomings, they are full of anticipation, excitement, nerves, and love – this one of course was no different Nichole and the kids were full of excitement to have their Marine home. The USO provided some snacks, some crafts, and a fun environment but the real fun began when we saw the busses pulling into the parking lot. Both kiddos were about to jump out of their skin as I am sure Nichole couldn’t wait. The best part of homecomings are the little things, that first kiss, asking your kiddos where their front teeth are, and letting your little man carry stuff that is way too heavy! Thank you again for sharing this time with me!
This family was so much fun as we explored the Morongo Preserve. They were full of smiles and laughter for the entire session; it was infectious! With two little ones we did some running, some jumping, some tickles and even some bunny ear wearing. I met Gia during a MOPS meeting where I was asked to discuss photography, camera use and just the art of picture taking all together. I loved her honesty when she asked and how do I just find someone to capture things for me; of course I answered here I am. In all honesty though we discussed looking for someone that fits your needs, that you love the work they do and that you believe will provide a product that you intend to have forever – I hope I met all of those qualifications and more in this session for your family Gia!
