this little bundle of cuteness came to my studio at just 2 1/2 days old!

he was a great sleeper and we had lots of fun with him.

caleb is a lucky little guy… he’s joining an amazing family!

it is such an honor to be invited into a family’s home to photograph precious moments of the everyday.

this sweet family just welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world, and wanted to have a regular evening in their home captured.

i love the simple moments…

big brother jack peeking into her crib.

cleaning endless bottles for two little ones.

daddy calling to tell them he’s almost home.

baths in the sink.

soothing a fussy tummy.

running circles under mommy’s legs while she holds a sleeping babe.

these are the everyday memories that we want to hold onto but so easily forget…

i’m so grateful they will have these to hold onto for when babies no longer fit into the sink.

…proof that you don’t always need the perfect lighting or poses to capture complete joy.

these little boys arrived at 38 weeks along…

quite a miracle considering their mommy was put on strict bed rest at 23 weeks.

god is so good!

luke jeffrey was the chunker weighing in at seven pounds, seven ounces and already has a feisty personality.

beau kenneth was six pounds, four ounces and already giving sweet little smiles.

it was an honor to capture them in the hospital all bundled up and new.

the coltman family

September 9, 2013

what can i say about this amazing family?

they were some of the first people we met in orange county, and i knew immediately we would be friends.

they are the definition of fun- you know you are going to have a great time when you’re with the coltmans!

they are also incredibly thoughtful, generous, and gorgeous inside & out.

we had a lot of fun (and silliness) with their family session in san juan capistrano.
