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. :)
…and for family members that want to have a good cry with me…click on the link below to see the video I made of Dylan’s first year (baby photos get me every time). :)
WARNING…picture overload ahead! I’ve been waiting and waiting to share these images from my first-ever Stylized Shoot. It was amazing!!! Gorgeous models, hair and make-up, and of course THEBEST rentals and styling around! Huge thank you to everyone involved. Hope you enjoy the photos!
Well, Mr. Drew was just a newborn when I saw him last. Now he is such a big boy, and full of so much joy! I love his big smile…it’s definitely contagious!!! Thanks to the entire family for such a fun day at the park, and I and can’t wait to see you all again later this year!!! :)
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…
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…
These gorgeous ladies definitely brightened my day at a time when it was much needed. I loved their laid-back attitude and the fact that they were up for anything. Thanks for making my job easy…and fun! I hope you enjoy your pics. :)
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!
The last time I saw this family was for Payton’s newborn pics! I can’t belive how much she has grown!!! Spring Minis are so much fun for this very reason…a chance to catch up with the families I love and to be able to give them some updated pics. BTW, Kristen also runs an amazing tutoring company in Long Beach…check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/kucinc
I can’t wait to see you all again later this year for your FREE session!!! :)

This past week has been a little rough over here as both my husband and our dog Lucy had to have surgery. Of course, as life would have it, both surgeries had some complications that went along with them. With half my household on bed rest, my work had to be put on hold for a few days. Now as my family is starting to recover, and I am making my way through the emails and messages, I just wanted to say a huge thank to everyone for being so patient with me! Unfortunately, when I am unable to work there is nobody else to pick up the slack. So, I promise to get back on track this week and hope everyone has a happy and HEALTHY week ahead of them. :)
