i get to photograph a lot of newborns, and it is always amazing to me when i photograph a one-year-old. in one short year, these little people go from sleeping, crying infants, unable to do anything on their own. just a short year later, they are walking, beginning to talk, eating real food, and playing. beautiful baby jaxon is almost one year old, and full of sunshine. i have no doubt this past year has

three curly-haired cuties. an incredible mommy + daddy. this family has been such an inspiration and encouragement to me. rottschafers...you are awesome (and adorable). the weather report had called for rain during our session. we were all prepared with cute umbrellas + rain boots. of course the sunshine was beautiful and much preferred to rain with three little kiddos. but they were super excited about umbrellas & stomping in puddles.... so why not? side note... getting three little boys

i got to meet this sweet little family on a warm day in old town orange. emily is almost a year old and already walking! our session was her first time wearing shoes and walking around outside... all that to say- she was WAY more interested in running away from us than taking any pictures. but even with emily on the run, we still got some great pics of this adorable family.
