Baby Jameson...

I apologize in advance for the number of photos that I am including in this post, but Jameson is my nephew and I just can’t get enough of his sweet face.  :)  Here are a few from his newborn session…

Introducing Jameson Styles McMullen!

I am so excited to share a few photos of my new nephew, Jameson.  He is so cute and did so well for his first photo shoot!  I have a ton of photos to edit, but thought I would post a few for now…  :)

Another Fun Park Shoot! :)

I finally have some time to catch up on my Blog, and am so excited to add these photos from a Ladera Ranch photo session in December with an amazing family and their super-cute son.  He was definitely into exploring the park, and I had so much fun chasing him around.  :)

Pregnancy Photos in the Rain!

Wouldn’t you know that it would start raining right at the beginning of our shoot???  Thank goodness Mommy and Daddy- to-be were so easy going and suggested taking the photos at their Ladera Ranch home instead.  We were able to find some great areas to take photos despite the rain clouds overhead!  I can’t wait to meet this gorgeous couple’s little boy in 2011.  He’s already a very lucky boy to have such great parents.  :)

Manhattan Beach

This adorable family was on the move for our entire shoot!  Our little model kept us moving around this gorgeous park in Manhattan Beach.  Thank goodness Mom and Dad were full of energy and kept the kids happy with lots of tickles and fun snacks.  Here are a few of the fun photos.  :)

Downtown Fullerton

This beautiful family wanted to have their photo session in downtown Fullerton, and I was so excited since I had never been there before.  We got some amazing family shots and for some reason I love them so much in black and white.  :)  Oh, and how cute is this little girl?!?!?  She looks like a doll!

Newborn Photo Shoot

I love photographing newborns, and this little Orange County guy was the perfect model.  He let me capture him while he was awake, and then fell asleep at the perfect moment.  Mom and Dad obviously love him so much, and I was so happy to be able to meet this beautiful family.  Here are just a few of their photos…

Lock up your daughters!!!

Look at this little Ladies’ Man!!!  How cute is he?  I can’t believe that I helped throw his Mom’s baby shower and now he is almost two. He was definitely on the move for our entire photo session, and it made for some fun photos!  Believe it or not, these are just a handful of the MANY great photos I got with this beautiful family.  Thanks for a great time, and I hope you enjoy the pics!

The World's Cutest Butterfly

Ivy was a natural!!!  I think it also helped that Mom and Dad sang and danced for her the entire time.  Thanks Jenny and JJ…you have adorable little girl, and was I so happy to be able to photograph her.
