Oh my. I’m pretty sure this is one of my favorite sessions to date. Not only did I get to photograph a truly gorgeous child, but mom had prepared the cutest outfits. We met in Old Town Temecula on Sunday morning and although I was warned this little girl could be a bit on the shy side, we totally hit it off and became good friends during the session. We chatted about school and her teacher, Dora the Explorer, lizards, books, sang some nursery rhymes– you know, all the cool things three year olds spout out over the course of an hour
I really hope mom loves these pictures as much as I do, because she’ll be viewing them from the other side of the world where she’s deployed, serving our country. Like I’ve said a billion times– I really do have the most amazing clients.
Just look at this face. Ahh, I want a little princess just like her, lol.

Is there anything more precious than handmade childrens clothing? I am obsessed with finding fun boutique items for own son’s wardrobe so I was THRILLED when I got the chance to photograph a beautiful little girl in a custom, handmade outfit from Little Boats clothing (Facebook HERE, Etsy shop HERE). The quality of these pieces is amazing– and accodring to our model they’re also real “comfy” As a photographer and mom it’s important for me to find things that not only photograph well, but are also suitable for every day wear. I sure wouldn’t mind having a closet filled with Little Boats, especially if I had a baby girl.
Be sure to visit the links I provided up top and keep in mind your upcoming family photo sessions– these outfits would be great choices

p.s. Shooting glamour and boudoir in the studio is amazing and so fun!

I just wanted to share a few photos I took of my son a couple of weeks back. He’s my best little buddy and truly makes my life complete. I couldn’t imagine a day without his giggles, his smile, his mischievious ways, even his tantrums, lol. He’ll be boy baby boy forever– in photographs at least…

There’s nothing quite like a Military Homecoming to send your emotions into overdrive. The anticipation, the overflowing pride, the pure joy. I like to compare it to the excitement of Christmas morning multiplied by a billion. It’s no wonder I love photographing these special occasions. As the wife of a U.S. Marine, I know exactly what these moments mean. They mean no more sleepless nights, no more countdowns, no more movies alone on the couch. They mean finally being able to shower or use the restroom without a cell phone glued to your hand. Homecomings bring to an end comments like, “Wow, that must be hard. I could never do that.” And for the record, yes, it is hard. But it’s a small sacrifice compared to the ones being made by those in uniform. Military spouses wait patiently, selflessly, and courageously. They work doubly hard to nurture a love separated by several time zones and thousands of miles. Homecomings mean families, hearts and lives are whole again.
I’m excited to share these photos from last week’s homecoming of the Marine Corps’ Delta Company, 1st Tanks Battalion, out of Twentynine Palms, CA. These guys just spent 7 long months in Afghanistan making history– Delta Company’s deployment marked the first time the Marine Corps has sent m1A1 Abrams tanks to Afghanistan. Way to go guys!
I’m so happy I was able to share in the excitement with my friend Nikki and her family as they welcomed home their Marine. Enjoy your time together as a family again, and thank you for all your sacrifices
