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.
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…
Have you ever met someone who you just instantly clicked with? Katalin was that woman for me! I loved her energy and her personality — after the session we sat and had coffees together at Starbucks and it really was like sitting with an old friend.
This mama-to-be can’t be more excited about her little man, who is expected to say hello to the world in March — just a couple short weeks away!
I have been feeling so thankful for photography and the connections that I have been able to make through my camera. Katalin just reinforced those feelings ten fold. I’m looking forward to staying in touch and organizing play dates for our little ones.
Kids these days! 15 going on 25!!
Huntington Beach, California – the temperatures are always perfect and it’s not far from whatever type of scenery you want – mountains, desert, ocean, lakes, forests – you name it and it’s all within a days drive. Although I absolutely love living in Bishop, I still have a big fat soft spot for the beach and its foggy mornings.
For our portrait photography session, we decided to take an early morning walk at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands — I had yet to take sunrise pictures and although I wouldn’t describe myself as a morning person, this session with Nicole & Michael made me wanting to do many many more.
The beautiful orange and yellow light + the cozy fall appeal = one very happy photographer. Thank you Nicole & Michael for dragging my butt outta bed and for being such an incredibly fun couple to photograph.
It seems like there isn’t anything more great then the love we share together. Love as a couple, love as a family. It just seems like it can’t get much better.
What a joy it was to capture some of this beautiful family’s love & goodness.
