Mateo's Newborn Photos - Long Beach Newborn Photographer

I’m so excited to FINALLY be blogging this newborn session!  I went to both high school and college with Kevin and it is amazing to see him now as a proud parent alongside his beautiful wife.  Obviously amazing parents have amazing kids, and Mateo is just that!!!  So happy to have been able to capture Mateo as a newborn…

Preschool Graduation

One of the best (and at the same time hardest) parts of being a parent is watching our kids grow up.  Dylan definitely seems to be zooming through life all of a sudden.  In fact, I still can’t believe it but today was her last day of preschool.  As Ty and I went to pick her up, I was preparing to be an emotional wreck.  For some reason though, I wasn’t.  Hearing her say she is so excited to be a BIG kid in a Kindergarten room made me excited for all the fun adventures ahead.  We are so proud of the beautiful and sweet girl she is becoming!  Happy Preschool Graduation Day to our big girl.  :)

Bright and Happy Newborn Session - Tustin Newborn Photographer

Although I absolutely love soft neutral colors for newborns, when I have a Mom asking for bright colors it instantly makes me happy!  Sweet little Lauren was surrounded by bright purple, turquoise and yellow colors throughout this session and I love how the photos turned out!  She was such a sweet and beautiful baby, sleeping the entire time even though she was already over two weeks old.  Thank you C family for having me over and allowing me to capture this precious time.  Here are a few of my favorites…

Wedgewood Wedding - Fallbrook Photographer

Lately I’ve been falling more and more in love with photographing weddings.  Watching two people begin their lives together surrounded by family and friends simply makes my heart happy.   I was a VERY happy girl a couple weeks ago when I was able to second shoot alongside Jamie from Jamie B. Photography.  We documented a beautiful day for an equally beautiful couple.  Here are some of my favorites…

Newborn Brandon - Irvine Photographer

Baby Brandon was already a little over two weeks old by the time I was able to photograph him, so I was crossing my fingers that he would not be too fussy or wake up too easily during our session.  Well, modeling must be in his future, because he was amazing…sleeping the entire time and giving us little sweet smiles along the way.  So happy to have met this little man and to see the love that surrounds him with his beautiful family.  Congratulations again on your handsome and healthy baby boy!
