Newborn Photo Shoot and Firefighter Dad

This newborn shoot had a lot of firsts for me.  It was my first newborn who’s Dad is a firefighter.  It was also my first newborn shoot that we included a puppy.  Both ended up being great incorporations for the shoot and I love the pictures and this moment in time we were able to capture forever.  Kids truly do grow so quickly, which is why I love being able to photograph newborns when they are so new, so small and so sleepy.

This little guy, who’s name is Canon, which I definitely approve of as this is what I shoot with.  Canon took a little bit to get to sleep and Mom kept apologizing, but I assured her I was not worried.  Once he did get to sleep, he slept the rest of the session like a rock star.  Here are a few of my personal favorites from the session.

High School Senior Girl Photo Shoot

I shot this High School Girl shoot well over a month ago, in fact I have many photo shoots that I have taken in the last month and I am finally trying to play catchup.

I cannot believe this beautiful girl is going to be graduating from high school!  I got to know her about 6 years ago when my family moved to Southern California.  At the time she was young girl who loved making videos with Littlest Pet Shops.  It has been amazing and awesome to see how much she has grown and matured.  She has hopes of some day being an actress and loves acting in her high school’s plays and musicals.  She truly has a good heart and a very easy smile.  We had such a fun time taking her pictures, she is a natural in front of the camera.

Newborn Baby Boy Photo Shoot

Part of the joy from my job is meeting new people, I especially love meeting new first time parents as it is always so fun to watch them.  To watch and see their excitement, their wonder, their awe and even the questions and feelings of ‘what are we supposed to do’?  It takes me back to when I was a brand new mom and so many memories both good and bad.

Jamie and her husband were no exception to this rule.  They have an adorable little guy and are going to be amazing parents.  Their love for their new baby and each other was very apparent and I was impressed with how well they worked together and helped each other out.  Their little guy made me work extra hard for those sleepy pictures, but in the end we were finally able to get pictures we all love.

A Preemie Baby Turns Four!

When you have your first child you go into it thinking you know some things but are completely terrified of everything you do not.   You soon realize that you were right, there is a lot you don’t know; but you will also be amazed at all you can do.  When your second child comes, you go into it with a little more confidence.   So when I was pregnant with my third child, I felt like ‘I’ve got this!’.

But as life likes to do, it throws a wrench in things.  While on vacation hundreds of miles from home, my son was unexpectedly born 8 weeks early.   After 19 days in the NICU he was finally able to released and we could make the long trip home.  This July was 4 years from when he should have been born, so I am finally sharing the pictures I took in May from his 4-year-old birthday shoot.

Aleah Senior Girl Session

I did this photo shoot several months ago and now today Aleah is graduating! It was definitely time to share a few of my favorites from her Senior Photo Shoot.  She wanted a beach session and even though it was a bit cool and overcast, we still had so much fun.  Aleah is a cheerleader and can do some crazy flips and moves, I can’t even imagine being able to do half of things she does.  We both got wet for a few of the shots but it was totally worth it.

Congratulations Aleah!  Enjoy your day.

S. Newborn Baby Girl Photo Shoot

Did I ever tell you how horrible I am at keeping this blog up.  I actually photographed this sweet newborn a couple of months ago, but am finally sharing the pictures here.   She had a hard time wanting to go to sleep and was just awake and looking around, but in the end she settled into a nice deep sleep for beautiful pictures.

December Newborn Baby Girl Photo Shoot

Hope your New Year is starting off right!  My family had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a new year.  Right before Christmas I had the privilege of photographing not one but two newborn baby girls.   I will share some of my favorite pictures from the first shoot this week.

This sweet little girl is this couple’s first baby.  It is always so fun to see first parent’s reactions and talk with them about adjusting to being parents.  It always brings back so many memories of what it was like when my three were newborns.  Since she is a December baby we had to do some cute Christmas shots too.

Scott Family Photo Shoot

Yesterday the Scott family came over to view their galleries.  This is by far one of my favorite parts of my jobs.  I love watching their reactions, love seeing the joy and happiness that seeing the pictures brings them.  There are always a few surprises as to which pictures are their favorites.  Sometimes a picture I just liked ends up being one of their absolute favorites.   Seeing how happy the pictures make them is why I keep doing this, why I love this job.

They were such a fun family to photograph too; their outfits were perfect, the girls were beyond adorable and it really was just a lot of fun.  I have been photographing more newborns lately, which I completely love and adore doing, but this shoot helped me remember how wonderful it is to photograph families too.
