sneak peek

The last time I saw this sweetie when he was just a newborn, he wasn’t very excited about the idea of being photographed :P But this time around, he gave us an hour full of smiles, giggles, and total fascination with the camera! I was definitely super happy that we had such a wonderful morning together! I had to stop myself from blogging the entire session because there were just so many that made me smile :) First, he’s got such amazing eyes – have you ever seen eyes this color? They are really beautiful and absolutely captivating. Second, would you look at mommy and daddy? Hello good looking couple…and third, the location rocked! I’m not all that familiar with San Diego, but I now know that an awesome spot is Balboa Park. Beautiful greenery, lots of open shade, and spectacular architecture that’s full of character. It is puuuurty! More to come from this session – that’s certain! I have to say that one of my favorite images is the very last one – it IS hard being a model…and very tiring!

I’m always so so happy when families have me take their maternity AND newborn pictures. There’s something so special about being a part of their journey as they go from couple to parents. It couldn’t be more true for this wonderful family. I am so blessed to have been welcomed into their lives and home to document their incredible journey! Aren’t they picture perfect? It’s not just the fact that they are both beautiful, have a gorgeous home, a gentle & loving doggie…and now a lovely baby girl — it’s more than that – it’s the love that they have for each other…that is clear to see from behind the lens. They adore each other so much, and it’s just the sweetest thing :) That, to me, makes it picture perfect.

  • Vanessa Ohhh (OMG!)....she's so beautiful!! I absolutley love these pictures. THey are so beautiful and your love for each other and your precious baby girl are so clear in these pictures. What a treasure. These photos definitley move you. Big hugs to all 4 of you! Love V(11.30.2010 03:14pm)

The title of this post seems very appropriate. Yes, Thanksgiving is just around the corner…which encourages me to reflect on all that I am thankful for – including my health, my family, the love in my life, happiness and of course, the opportunity to make heartfelt connections with the families I photograph. There are too many things about what I do that I love…but on the top of the list has got to be becoming more than just a photographer to families – but becoming friends. It’s the most fulfilling aspect of what I do, and what makes it so special. The sweet angel below was only 7 days young for our session — and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing his itty bitty newborness….AND of course, getting to see his big brother again! These boys have such amazing parents….and I am so fortunate to be a part of their journey!

I’m really very lucky to have such sweet and wonderful families to photograph. This fam was no different. Not only were their two boys just as adorable as can be…I thought mommy was just as sweet as pie! Gorgeous smile and just a pleasure to be around. No wonder her boys adore her so much! Annnd, the icing on the cake was that littlest man was a sleepy head and did not mind at all having me photograph him while he dozed off :) An absolutely beautiful baby boy at only 14 days young. What a perfect addition to an already amazing family!

  • Ana Julie, these look great! I can't wait to see the rest. We had such a good time working with you--thanks so much!(11.21.2010 07:58pm)

Is she charming? Hmmm, maybe just a little. Would you look at that sweet smile with little bitty baby teeth? That has got to be the cutest thing ever! I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised about how pretty she is – when I photographed her as a newborn, I already knew she was going to be beautiful like her mommy in just a few months. Although I really adored her jolly little giggle, I also loved her more serious, pensive look. She’s got these gorgeous blue eyes that speak volumes! I know I say this a lot – but I really feel blessed beyond words to be invited to share these amazing milestones with families. When moms ask me to come back and photograph again, it always makes me so incredibly happy!  Plus I’m just so curious and anxious to see how much the little ones have grown – it’s amazing! My jaw drops to the floor each and every time. I just can’t believe how fast 10 months goes by.

How pretty is she? And how super loving is her family? How much mommy and daddy adore her make me so happy :)

After only 10 minutes into the photo session, we had to stop. Ohhh, poor baby boy hurt his little arm (waaah) so we ended early. BUT, would you look at what we got in only 10 minutes! I just adore these and especially love his super cute, animated facial expressions. Once we have our full session, I know it’s going to be awesome!!

When I saw baby boy, I was totally blown away by his amazingly big, beautiful brown eyes…and that pout – just perfection. THEN, I saw the two girls – are they not super gorgeous?! The good looking genes were obvious – it was almost unbearable – my camera was definitely happy. And WOW – look at mom…hello hot-mama! True, we were chasing the sun as it set reaaallly fast, but sometimes, the best sessions are the fastest ones!

…..he’s so squueezable and huggable! An amazingly sweet little boy with a smile that lit up this cloudy morning! True, I have many *favorite* ages to photograph — but it’s really so, so, so cute when babies are learning to walk because they’ve got that little waddle strut with a chubby diaper butt that is just adorable! Awww, I miss when my son was this age…It’s ok though, lucky me because I get to be around it all the time anyway!

was three! One, two, three….weeeee! And of course, three lovely subjects to photograph makes it 3x the fun! What a darling little girl – she was giggly, full of smiles, and just as pretty as can be :) All family sessions should be this effortless & natural…really, their session couldn’t have been more fantastic – not a tear in sight, and not a tantrum to be seen! Plus the location was fabulous. I do love to use my wide angle lenses, but for this session, I found myself pulling it out a little more often because the architecture of this place was unreal. I had an awesome, awesome time!!!

  • Sohee Such beautiful photos! Love how this turned out!!(11.03.2010 09:27am)
