i adore my job.

i have the incredible privilege of photographing brand new babies- each of them so beautiful. so special so unique.

and every once in awhile….the baby is extra special to me, because it’s the baby of a friend.

andrew and cambria are some of our closest, dearest friends- the kind of friends you go on vacations to other countries with.

 we watched them meet, fall in love, and stood beside them at their wedding.

and now, they are parents.

i traveled up to sacramento to capture the incredibly gorgeous little leo.

he decided he was much more interested in having his ‘auntie’ hold him than take his pictures.

but with some patience (sitting on the couch with your best friends is never a bad thing) we were able to get some amazing images-

get ready for an overload of long eyelashes, awesome hair, and perfect little lips.

leo…. your auntie shara loves you so much.

but really- everyone loves leo.
