Baby Beautiful

I love this baby.  And I love this photo.  I might put it on my wall and pretend she is my child.  ;) 
No but seriously, what a honey!  Congratulations mommy, she is beautiful.  And daddy, who is off fighting a war and hasn't met her yet, you better hurry home because you'll have to start fighting off the boys in no time with this gorgeous girl!

 those lips!!!
What a beautiful baby!  I just can't get over how sleepy and sweet she was, an angel if I ever saw one.  Thank you to  Tracey Draper for the super sweet hat, bowl, and headband!  Love!
Thanks again for the fun morning and the baby fever little E inspired!  ;)

Welcome Home Vipers!

These three little kiddos missed their daddy!  And mommy missed him even more!  Loved the younger daughter's reaction when the busses showed up--she just started sobbing, none of us could figue out why she was crying, but it made me tear up!  She couldn't stop sobbing while hugging him for the first time--it was both beautiful, heart wrenching, and comicial :)  Thanks for letting me share in this moment you guys!  Enjoy your time as a party of five once again!

Remember These Guys?!

 I've had the pleasure of working with these guys through my lens three times now!  Each time it gets more fun :)  Daddy's only been home a few weeks and they are moving away in another 2...crazy how slow  life can seem during a deployment and then how fast it goes when the get home!!  Crazy! 
 Aren't they beautiful together...and look at the beautiful kiddos they've made!

I just love these little ones--they were so great to work with!  Hannah kept asking to hold my sweet :)  We will miss you guys--good luck in your next adventure!  Maybe we'll meet up again sometime...the corps is so small ;)

A great day to welcome a HERO!

Welcome home Dan!  You were GREATLY missed.  I cannot think of  a better day in history to welcome you home :) 

It was so sweet watching the kids eat their very last hershey kisses from the 'daddy kiss jar' that their mommy made to symbolize the countdown to his return.  209 kisses is a lot of chocolate!  But I bet they would have traded them all for a real kiss from there hero.  What a day! 

Sorry about the poor web quality

Family Q

This family session at the gardens left me with an adrenaline rush for hours!  We were racing the clock and hiding from the mean gardens nazi who didn't want us taking 'professional photos' :)  Crazy!  But we had fun, bribed the kiddos a lot, and got some cute shots :)  I love this family--they emulate love and beauty...

Adorable kiddos, gorgeous parents--makes for some pretty pictures!  Thanks for the fun adventure yesterdary you guys :)  Enjoy!

Miss Molly--3 months!

Miss Molly.  Adorable.  And THREE months old already!  I'm so excited to have the privilege to photograph this little face from newborn through one year.

She is as cute as her name wouldn't you say?!  And a big thank you to the creator of this adorable hat, Tracy Draper!  Check her out at:  Tracy Draper, Crochet for the Wee Ones

Kennadi is TWO!

 I love this little girl!  I've known her since she was but a spark in her mommy's eye, and I've watched her come into her spunky personality over the last two years :)  I cannot believe she is TWO already!  What a blessing she is to all who know her--just adorable. 

Happy Birthday Kennadi!

Christina and Shannon's Big Day!

I had the most amazing opportunity this weekend--to shoot my first wedding!  And not just any wedding, a DOUBLE wedding!  With two of the most beautiful easy going brides ever to grace the alter.  So the following crazy number of photos are my sneak peek for these lovely newly weds!
I love this part of weddings.  They had a wonderful hair dresser and makeup artist from "Salon Elle" in La Jolla come to the beach house they had rented for the weekend.  I love seeing Brooks watching his bride get beautified in this photo! 

Sky Writing!

While the brides were getting ready there was a sky writer off the coast!  A fun memory for the day :)

It's all in the Details!
