Javier and Maya: Young Love | Murrieta Family Photographer | Alicia Q. Photography


post filed in:

I’m super giddy to share this session with you all because I love showing off my family!  My little brother Javier is like a best friend to me (even though we’re 9 whole years apart) and I can’t believe he’s almost out of his teen years.  It seems like just yesterday I was changing his diapers, forcing him to dance to Shania Twain songs with me, and watching scary “woovies” together.  Now, he’s big and tall and has a girlfriend.  Gah!  I suppose when you ignore the part about me getting old, my baby brother growing up isn’t too bad.  First, he’s a great baby-sitter.  Second, he has his own car and I no longer have to taxi him around town.  And third, I get to watch him figure out life.  He’s doing pretty well, too.  He managed to find Maya, a sweetheart of a girl who adores our family.  And it turns out, we like her, too!  Haha.  But really, she’s a doll and seems to fit so well with Javier.  For her birthday (which she shares with me!) Maya wanted to have their photos taken.  My brother convinced her that the portrait studio in the mall was a bad idea and he scheduled a session with me.  See, I told you he’s doing pretty well at this “life” thing.  Smart boy!  Anyhow, here are some of my favorite shots so far from Javier and Maya’s “Young Love” session.  Enjoy!  And remember to leave some comments if you feel compelled to do so 🙂


Isn’t she a pretty little thing?!?  Ahh, to be a teenager again…

Look at this handsome boy!  Aww, I’m a proud big sister 🙂
