This brand new family of 3 made my job so easy. I mean, look at mom and dad, baby A had no chance of being anything but the most adorable little man in the world. And he has succeeded. From his gorgeous eyes to the cutest little smile, he made me mush. The mushiest of mush.
This was by far one of my favorite sessions of this season…but I feel like I say that after every session these days. I just love that I get to spend time with such amazingly sweet families, and this one was no exception. These littles and their smiles melted my heart and I just wanted to squeeze the heck out of them, especially when Brayden kissed his mommy and realized she had lipgloss on and said “you have gooey on your lips!” and then thought about it for a second and excitedly asked “can I have gooey on MY lips?!”
I photographed Lisa and Daniel’s maternity session and have had the pleasure of photographing little W all through out his first 10 months as part of the family. He’s wonderful. I mean, look at that face.
This session was so incredibly fun! I mean, how often do you get to play with snow on an 80 degree, California November day? It may not have been real, but who cares!? We pretended we live in a winter wonderland and it almost felt like it for a second.
The holiday season started off with a bang with the amazingly beautiful Wills family…and I mean that in every way possible. I absolutely love spending time with this bunch. I continually learn how to parent well, how to love authentically, and how to be transparent with those around you and invite people in every time I’m with them. And seriously, who wouldn’t love spending time with these two little faces?
This adorable family was so much fun to photograph! They’ve lived by the beach for a long time and have never done the obligatory pier session, so we went down to the beach for their Christmas mini session and we had some of the best light I’ve seen in a long time. Their little man is so adorable and sweet and he absolutely loved the sand and birds everywhere…watching him get so excited every time a bird came by made me so excited for those moments with our little lady when she arrives.
I loved hanging out with you guys for the little bit of time we had together. Thank you, Alfanos, for including me in your first California Christmas photos!!
Mandy + Lu’s big day was beyond perfect. Perfect weather, perfect venue, a gorgeous bride, a groom who couldn’t possibly be more excited and they were surrounded by so much love and support by their amazing family and friends. I couldn’t wait to post this preview and re-live this fantastic day. Enjoy!
I mean, seriously…look at that face! She kills me with those eyeballs!
These 5 are some of my favorite human beings on this planet. My mom, dad, nieces and nephew are extraordinary people and I am so blessed to have them in my life. The oldest of the 3 littles in smart, artistic, and such a great role model. She is so diligent about making sure they all obey Mommy + Daddy and genuinely gets joy out of doing the right thing. My nephew loves all things Star Wars, is athletic and super funny. He loves telling stories with sound effects and has the best dimples I’ve ever seen. And the littlest little is silly, quiet, subtle in her humor and growing wonderfully into who she is. She’s a lot funnier than I think even she realizes sometimes.
We spent the morning at Wilderness Park together and everyone was all smiles…most of the time. I love these people.
