one big happy family

October 3, 2013

i had such a fun evening with this extended family! i first met the gaspar family at greyson's newborn session.... ten months later he is such a big boy! greyson's cousin, katie, is fourteen months and a total doll-baby. she decided to stick out her tongue for almost the entire session, and still managed to be totally adorable. this big family was full of laughter and joy- my favorite things to capture.

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

the coltman family

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

jaiden :: one year old

August 27, 2013

i can't believe this sweet baby boy is turning one! i met him at his newborn session and he had me with those eyelashes. he is absolutely darling, and full of spunk and smiles. jaiden... you are such a special little guy!

can't believe this sweet little guy is already a year old! i first met him at just four weeks old for his newborn session, and then got to see him again for his 6 month session. he is full of spunky smiles and sweetness, and he continues to have the best hair ever. and just for's a sweet photo from austin's newborn session...

i love, love, love supporting local mommies doing business. remember my little mamas session?  such great headbands! i was recently contacted by another local business- cheri is in the application process for the television show "shark tank" and needed product photos. "shark tank" happens to be my hubby's so how could i say no? and when i saw how adorable her stuff was, i was super excited to photograph it! i asked my dear friend

the frazier family

June 13, 2013

a few weeks ago, our family gathered for a huge family reunion. it was so fun getting to see cousins, aunts, and uncles that we don't see very often. my favorite thing was having my 'little' brother and his family come down for the week. little macie had never been to the beach before, so we had a fun morning capturing her exploring the sand, avoiding the waves, and chasing the birds. and to

i first met (and fell in love with) little lyla at her one-year-old cake smash session. just weeks after her session, her parents found out she needed to wear glasses, and decided they needed some pictures to capture how absolutely precious and adorable she is in them. i mean, seriously... could she BE any cuter? and she is just as sweet and she is beautiful. so basically- baby perfection.

it seems like just yesterday little conrad was in my studio for his four month session. now he is almost one year old! conrad is still just as cute, but has definitely become a busy little guy.  he kept us moving the whole time! i absolutely love getting to watch these sweet babies grow up. it's always so much fun to watch these sweet babes try their very first cake. for many of them, it's

little miss olivia. i cannot believe you are turning ONE! it seems like we just photographed your mommy's pregnant belly, and your newborn portraits (which sadly that blog somehow got deleted from the archives) . but here you are... spunky, smiling, and adorable. i love every single one of those chubby baby rolls! we decided to go back to the field we used for olivia's maternity session... amazing the difference that one little year can make. olivia is
