Obviously I have a sweet spot for baby boys and Benjamin easily stole my heart at his newborn session I was eagerly waiting his arrival and it turns out he is as cute as I predicted he’d be. I met mom and dad back in December on Camp Pendleton and we had their maternity session (seen here) just a few weeks later in January. It was so obvious that Benjamin’s parents were already totally in love with him and seeing them finally hold their baby was so rewarding for me. I love being able to literally watch a family come alive with the birth of a child.
Clearly Benjamin is a gorgeous baby but he was so very sweet too He slept like a rock for the first part of our session and although he’d had enough by the time we got to family photos, I’m thrilled with the honesty that I was able to capture as mom and dad comforted their son. I feel honored and blessed to have been a part of this trio’s life– even if just for a few hours.
Congrats, J family and enjoy this sneak peek!

I’d like you to meet Miss Chloe Madison. She is as cute and sweet as her name This tiny little baby must have had a growth spurt as soon as she arrived for her photos because she just wanted to eat and eat. Once she had her fill, she slept like an angel, though. I think I might have mom bring her back so I can play some more She looked soooo cute in these headbands!

I’m really excited to share this post with you guys. I did this session for a local gal who crochets the cutest little hats, booties, headbands– everything really. I’d love for you all to take visit her Etsy shop, Crochet by Palm, and check out her fabulous work. You can also head on over to her Facebook page here and stay up-to-date with sales, new items, etc. And there just might be a special promotion going on right now for fans of my Facebook page. Go look!
Thank you, Palm, for trusting me to capture your talent!

Week 7 was a freebie for the Project 52. In keeping with my own general theme of MY SON, here’s a little gem I captured while he was on time-out at the harbor down in San Diego as I was scouting a location. It is SO hard to be upset with this child when he makes faces like this. I imagine him looking up to the heavens, thinking, “Are you there, God? It’s me, Atticus. Mom put me on time-out. Can I get a little help?” That little prayer must’ve worked because I let him loose after I saw how cute he looked on the LCD screen. What a stinker…

I’m a little behind in sharing my Project 52 photos on the blog. Nevertheless, here is my take on the theme “emotion” for week 6.
Before my son was born, emotions were just words I used to mask the reality of the apathy that lived inside of me. I was “happy”. I was “sad”. I was actually somewhere in between.
Then my little man came along and showed me that real, raw emotion exists. I never knew such joy and passion until he looked at me with those soulful gray eyes. I never knew fear for the future like I do now raising a child. I never felt such longing until I noticed my baby was a baby no more.
My son has defined emotions for me– the greatest of which is pure, unconditional, unabated love.
