Home Family Photography Session

Blocker Blog-3

This little angle of a baby was only 2 weeks old when I took these pictures, just a couple weeks ago. It’s so crazy how fast your baby grows and changes that documenting wether professionally or with your iPhone (like 99% of my pictures of John Henry are on my iPhone — convenience, right?) Anyway, this session was going to be pushed back but Mama decided to arrange their schedule JUST to get these pics done pronto. They never are going to be as young as the are today.

I love photographing families in their home. This family photography session was taken in Bishop, CA — they just happened to have that AMAZING willow tree in the back yard. I told them people pay a lot of money to style their wedding with stuff like that, they replied that that tree alone was one of the reasons they bought their house.

This session was shot with my Canon 5d and my Sigma 35mm lens. I have been obsessed with using my prism with you can tell made an appearance on the 3rd image below.

Oh babies. I have always wanted to be a mom and now that I am one, it really is as good as I always hoped. Photographing other moms is becoming one of my new favorite things.

Fall Color in Convict Lake

courtney-3

So many families come up from Southern California to vacation and enjoy the fall color around the Eastern Sierra. My family and I always head up to Rock Creek (definite soft spot for that canyon) but rarely get out to other places — I’m so thankful that my photography gets me out when I would probably otherwise me cuddled up at home with Phil & John Henry…. Husband + Baby = My World.

So, are you coming up from So Cal and looking for a photographer to document your family around the holidays? These photos are taken up at Convict Lake, just 15 or 20 minutes south of Mammoth Lakes. Of course there is NO shortage of beautiful locations to photograph families and loved ones, and hey! So many options just walking distance from the car.

I love wrangling kiddos although with just 6 months of mommyhood under my belt, I can’t claim I’m an expert or anything but I love being a part of the family, if even just for an hour.

Alice & Andrew are Expecting

AAA Maternity-23

Alice and Andrew are expecting their little bundle of joy April 6, 2017. A baby girl. And they can’t be more excited. Heck, I can’t be more excited for them!! They have read the books and prepared the nursery but what is going to make these two exceptional parents is their undeniable love that they have for each other.

Congratulations to you Alice & Andrew!! You two are going to be amazing parents, I truly can not wait to meet your little girl.

Breaking into Headshots w/ Melissa

melissa-robledo-9

I think it’s SO so sooo important to have mentors in your life. People that believe in you and encourage you and plant little ideas in your head for success. I am SO so sooo fortunate to have a few of those very special people in my life.

One of these particular mentors is always encouraging me to push my photography & business endeavors. This mentor of mine recently got some headshots done (not by me) — and this got my wheels turning about the headshot niche of photography that I’d never thought about. So here is the first trial run, with another good friend of mine, Melissa.

Just as I feel lucky to have friends who I also consider mentors, I also feel very lucky to have friends that double as models! Cough cough, like Melissa here…

@ Home w/ Mike & Katie

How cute are Mike & Katie?!

This was my first “in-home” session and I think we all had a blast. In-home photo sessions are intimate & comfortable and really lets a couple’s personality shine. This session was particularly amazing because I got to partake in some of those delicious sourdough waffles they whipped up!

Mike and Katie are ALWAYS cooking up something amazing. They both navigate a kitchen like total bosses and create food combinations that are incredibly delicious and mind boggling to me. Gosh, I need to learn how to cook!

Although these two are completely comfortable lounging around the house in their pajamas they also really get after it — planning their next adventure, next mountain to climb or of course, their next dinner to host.

I am so lucky to call these 2 family and can’t wait to document their love story for years to come.

Personal: December in Bishop, California

Fumie on Heavenly Path V1

I really can’t count how many times Phil and I have said, “We live in the best place in the world.” We say it a lot. Daily maybe.

Bishop, California has treated us well for just shy of 4 years, but we sincerely look forward to spending the rest of our days here, growing our family and raising our little John Henry here. And although this post isn’t about the Eastern Sierra Women’s March, we participated today along with some 580 other Eastern Sierra residents and couldn’t have felt more encouraged and positive about our town and our greater community as a whole.

But onto the bouldering and how beautiful Bishop is in December. We live is a town that has world-class rock climbing and mountain views that I believe are unriveled. A town that is generally sleepy and quite, very much our style. And this year Bishop has been getting some much needed snow that has only added to the beauty of the Owens Valley.

We are so thankful to live in a place that we love, of course! But to live in a place that our friends love too — a place where they are willing to travel hundreds of miles just to visit us (ok and climb) now that is  something to be even more thankful for.

Here is a compliation of pictures from December 2016. Lots of climbing with friends, outdoor adventures and caputing the many magnificent faces of my dear friend Fumie Hiromitsu.

Enjoy.
