Cake Smash sessions are always fun and so unique! Emma’s was no different, she isn’t quite one yet so this was her first cake smash and she went for it! We had a nice session in the Joshua Tree National Monument, we snuck in a mini family session and then Emma was dressed for her 4th of July birthday for a cake smash.
What an awesome day to capture as a photographer. I always feel blessed to be a part of these moments in time; when two people commit forever to each other. I didn’t even know there was a pavilion in the Joshua Tree Monument Indian Cove Campground but what a beautiful place to get married and to photograph. After the ceremony the newlyweds and I adventured to a few more locations unique to our city. DeeAnna and Victor make a gorgeous couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world!
My sessions always touch my heart and make me feel blessed to capture some moment in time but when I get to photograph my nephew and his girlfriend as they begin a new chapter my heart overflows! Ben and Ashley are on a new adventure; they are moving away from California. My hopes and wishes for them are of course grand and what a better way to decorate a new residence than with some new couple’s photos!
During a busy crazy day I left my step stool at Knotts Sky Park, a photographer shooting her own session that day was nice enough to pick it up for me, find me on the internet and call me so I could come get it! So awesome to find good people who will go out of their way to be nice; well her husband is getting out of the Marine Corps this week so what better gift than to do a session with them before they leave. I was a little nervous about how things would go photographing someone else who feels the same passion I do for photography but oh my did we have fun!! What a great couple and what a bunch of great images. The Hemmingers are leaving for new adventures and I wish them all the luck, I am so glad I met them and was able to capture one last peek of here for them.
I had the pleasure of photographing the Murray’s for their engagement session a few years ago and now they are welcoming another member of their family, baby Liam! As usual baby’s are awake when we want them asleep and asleep when we are trying to keep them awake but without some work these images wouldn’t hold all the personality of this little guy. The blue eyes on this little man match his older sister’s and are bound to add to his handsomeness, watch out girls he is going to be a charmer :)!
What a fun and energetic session. This two year old kept us moving every second of our time together; up, down, forward, backward, and rolling on the ground. Everyone in this family has these amazing blue eyes and I am so excited that we were able to capture them in these images. This was a maternity session that included a two year old session, lots of bubbles blown and I think we captured everything mom and dad were looking for. The Pierce family will be welcoming an addition soon and I can’t wait to meet her!
PS There is nothing better than the hugs of a two year old who had fun while you were chasing her through the grass with the camera.
This beautiful little 6 year old is Jenica, not only does she capture my heart when she is in front of my camera but often in my personal life. I have been blessed to know her since she was a baby and I am so excited to watch her as she grows into a young lady. One of the bonuses to photographing friends is that you often get some goofy outtakes just like a few of these in this blog. Jenica leave a trail of beaming smile everywhere she goes, her personality and smile are one of a kind. Enjoy and be on the lookout for another Silvas on the blog; her big brother is graduating from high school this year!
