While this is a bit of a late post I can’t help but share; these three have grown near and dear to my heart. I was contacted by their momma when she was still pregnant with her baby girl, that would start 18 months of capturing their fun, bright, and sweet children as well as their family. This is another one of those times that I can’t say enough how much this hobby/business has blessed my heart. Watching children grow is amazing and these three astonish me every time I see them.
When I was contacted to photograph two BFFs for a birthday I was excited to discuss what we could do that would make this session different and special. We decided we would take some shots of them together and add a color session at the end. Unsure of what it was going to be like the girls showed up for a little adventure. We met at some abandoned structures in the desert to give us a little different feel and back drop. With the desire to chronicle this time and this friendship I just asked the girls to hang together and pretend that there wasn’t a camera on them 🙂 Our friendships throughout life become such a piece of who we are. Those that we grow with, share with, cry with, and just simply be with. Everyone should have a BFF photo shoot!
I still have no idea what was said during all the whispering but I know whatever it was they couldn’t keep from laughing and having a good time. There was a little hesitance when the color came out but quickly they found their silliness and began having fun. Both became decorated with beautiful colors! Success was made in capturing this time in each of their lives. Thank you again for letting me spend this time with you all!
What do you get when you have a mom that just wants some nice family photos but two teenaged boys that aren’t so sure? Great family photos! We went out and had a little fun while capturing these three together. Laura and her boys were here visiting for a holiday weekend and wanted to memorialize these moments in time before they headed off to some big adventures. Moving, changing schools, and just big life changes are ahead for them; I wish you all the luck and I hope you enjoy all these wonderful images.
Newborn sessions are done in the first 5-10 days after a little one arrives so when this family contacted me and wanted to do a newborn styled session with their 3 month old I was honestly a little worried but always up for the challenge. To my surprise it wasn’t a challenge at all; this delightful beauty was sweet from start to finish and oh so photogenic. Mom and I worked seamlessly from pose to pose, she had some great items to use that went perfectly with what I brought.
We added a few pieces of patriotism to our session to honor the 4th of July and her daddy who is a Marine. I love when families are so proud of their service and country! Lucky for me I get a lot of that working in a military community. The sacrifice these families make is real, service members that spend countless hours away from their loved ones and often in danger.
This little lady truly exudes timeless beauty in each of these images. I hope her family loves them as much as I do ❤ !
The Brownings and I met last December through a garage sale purchase, from there I have had the pleasure of getting to know them and watch them grow as a family. Pregnant when we met they asked me to do their newborn pictures, since that we have met on a few more occasions to celebrate this first year in their daughter’s life. Always one of my favorites to work with a family again and again. Doesn’t always work that way in a military town.
These two are super proud of who they are, the country that they serve and their family. We have been able to capture that throughout every session while allowing their families to see this little one blossom and grow. I believe Hilary and I bully Ethan just a bit but he is always smiles and a good sport; even when we pulled out the tutu at this last session.
So this big guy, Frank the Tank, and I have been hanging out for a while now. I have had the pleasure of photographing his family for years and him since his newborn session! If you look closely you will see he carries the nickname Frank the Tank but he is just a big love except when we feed him cake or try to take his picture. Now in all fairness to him I think his dad conspires against us to get this guy to smile on picture day but that’s ok we always make it work and we always get the picture 🙂 I’m so glad I have been able to watch him grow and look forward to being there when it’s time for his Senior Pictures ❤
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!
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!
