When I was pregnant, 9 months seemed like FOR.EVER. But while shooting my baby Wild Thing’s 9 month pictures, all I could think was, “where did that time go?!” The time just slips by you …one diaper at a time. … Continue reading

I just love this family! I met them shortly after my family moved back to California. We did a newborn session when their youngest was 4 days old. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to capture images for them a … Continue reading
I was absolutely amazed how alert and smiley little Easton was at just 1 month old! We had a great time and he was so tolerate of me interrupting his naps here and there.
And I just love that his parents bring him back every 3 months – he’s so much fun to work with. And if you think he’s cute here, oh man, just wait! You’ll be seeing much more of this handsome little guy … his next session is schedule for the beach and I’m pretty excited about it!
I just loved spending time with this family. Beautiful weather, beautiful beach, AND a beautiful pregnant mommy & her gorgeous family on the beach – that’s why I love my job! And these little girls were so much fun to play with, we ran around, we laughed, and had a great time. Their youngest was just about to turn one and soon after this session they became a family of 5 – some important moments in time!
I love being a part of a such special time in a family’s journey!
I just love this family!
They’re so easy to work with and have the cutest little guy. We had great weather and it was an awesome morning. I’m honored that they would include me in their vacation to San Diego. I love it when I get to see my littlest clients go grow up through my lens.
This is one of my favorites spots … hope you’ll see why. Enjoy!
Precious Brooke was my first preemie. I was in complete awe of how tiny she was – even at a month old. And she didn’t want to miss a single minute of what I was doing because she stayed awake the entire session. But I pride myself with “going with the baby’s flow” so it didn’t bother me at all. I appreciated her interested and beautiful little eyes watching my every move.
Here are some of my favorite shots from of little Brooke …
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of Maternity sessions. It’s such a special time for a family. And since its just a “phase” of our lives, its my honor to capture some of those moments. For my family, the 1st pregnancy was 9 years in the making – so I understand how special the phase it really is.
I type this in all my 34 weeks of our 2nd pregnancy (swollen, can’t sleep, sweating ALL the time, hormonal) glory. I can’t help but think I only have precious few weeks left before my gift from God is exposed to the world. All my aches, whines, and preggies aliments will be washed away the exact moment I see that little face. The part that’s often forgotten is the process … capture those moments mommies! Not everyone is given the opportunity to capture this time. Fat, swollen, or exhausted – you and your family will cherish the pictures later. And although most most preggies don’t feel beautiful at the time, the pictures are precious glimpses of how beautifully blessed they really are from inside to out – literally! So document it, its one of the most important phases of your life – the process that CREATES a family.
I can’t say enough how I love shooting sessions for preggies!! And I was so excited about this particular Maternity session because it would be my first on the beach … love, love, LOVE outdoor Maternity Sessions! A huge thank you to this family for including me in such a special time!
Here’s another family you’ve seen a few times on my blog! I’ve done more than a couple of sessions for them and they just keep getting better!
And this was a special trip out for them because we did a Maternity Session too! Yay, congrats!! I’ll post those shots on another blog post soon. We got SO many great shots during this session – I was so excited for them to see their proofs!
I’d like to thank the Kowanetz family for coming out for pictures. They’re such a nice family to work with and at one of my favorite locations – awesome!
