San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby Dean Sneak Peek}

Some of the most exciting calls I get for a photo session are from previous photo clients! I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was to receive a message from Baby Dean’s mom about her new bundle of joy. We met a few years ago when I photographed her maternity session while she was pregnant with her first son and I’ve wondered how their adorable family was doing in the world!

I was ecstatic to hear they were doing well and she wanted to schedule a session for her new son! Baby Dean was almost 7 weeks old for our session, and I loved that he was so expressive in so many shots! Not only did I photograph the baby, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph the whole family and they were wonderful to work with! They’re all gorgeous and amazingly nice. Not only did they make my job easy, but I loved spending time with them and seeing how much love they all have for each other!

Baby Dean’s Daddy is a drummer, so they had the awesome idea of incorporating part of Dad’s beautiful drum kit into the session! How cool is that?!

Baby Dean is one lucky little man to have such a wonderful family! Beautiful mom with an amazing heart, cool musical dad and awesome big brother; he really is a lucky little guy! I really loved spending time with the whole family and hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby Nick Sneak Peek}

Meeting new families, capturing a little slice of time, especially with a new little one, that’s what makes it amazing to be a photographer! I was so happy to get to work with Baby Nick, his big sister, parents and grandfather, too!

When I’m contacted about photographing a newborn session, many times the first question I hear is “they’re past the 10 days, is it too late?” I always respond that they’ll never be as little as they are right then and there! Of course, the sweet spot for photographing newborns is when they’re 5-7 days old – they’re still tiny and curled up, sleeping lots, and they’re belly button has usually healed by that point – but it’s never too late for a newborn session! What do you think?

I really loved meeting the whole family and hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

San Diego Senior Portraits Photographer {Peters Twins Sneak Peek}

Anytime I get to spend time behind the lens, working with fun, energetic, outgoing and really nice kids is an absolute blessing in my book!

My friend Janet from church approached me about photographing her twins for their senior portraits. I was so excited at the opportunity to work with them, especially a brother-sister pair, and at one of my favorite parks, too! As high school seniors, they’re at such a wonderful time in life! There’s so much promise and potential in the future and anytime I meet someone at this stage in life, I can’t help but get a little excited and yet weepy for them! So much ahead, and such a change in life as far as growing up!

I truly had a blast photographing Jeannette and Bryan and am excited for what their futures hold! Graduating high school and heading to college is such an amazing time in life. I’m thrilled we had the opportunity to capture this little slice of time before they’re off on the next chapter!

I really loved meeting Janet’s kids and hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby Hazel Sneak Peek}

2016-03-25_1295_sneakpeek-2

Sometimes when I’m contacted for a newborn session, the mom is worried that the baby is past the “perfect” window. But in all reality, babies will never be that small again, whether they’re just a couple days or months old! I loooooooooove photographing little babies of any age!

2016-03-25_1327_sneakpeek2016-03-25_1357_sneakpeek 2016-03-25_1410_sneakpeek

Baby Hazel was almost a month old when I had the fabulous opportunity to photograph her and her sweet big sister! They’re almost the same distance in age as my baby sister and I are, so I really had a great time talking to big sis about some of my memories and experiences! Sister bonds are the greatest!

Life. Love. Laughter. Those are words we see on Word Art, in Memes, and on Pinterest Boards. Words we aspire to live by, to represent us, to define us. It brings me so much joy when I meet families that embody those words, just like the lovely Foley multi-generation family!

We met early one February morning in La Jolla, and the thick marine layer added such a fantastic feeling to the session. The tide was quite high, so we avoided the sandy beach and enjoyed the beautiful lawn area, the fabulous trees with all their texture, and we ventured out onto the cliffs before the sun completely broke out for the day! The Foley’s were such a treat to work with! I loved photographing this sweet family and I hope they enjoyed the experience, too!
