Baby’s first meeting with sand, a sneak peak – La jolla cove baby pictures

A few days ago I had the pleasure of photographing a family session for a amazing family who was visiting from North Carolina. There little one had never played in the sand at the beach before, so it was more than just a family shoot but a way to capture a first at the beach. Here is just a little sneak peak of this darling little redhead 🙂 Full blog post coming soon!

A family so awesome, you might be a little extra awesome for reading about them- La Jolla photography

I just realized that I overlooked writing a blog from a family session from a few weeks ago- I claim lack of sleep!

I get so excited when I have a client who is excited. That kind of enthusiasm is contagious. So when Coral contacted me to photograph her family portraits, I could not help but pick up on how much she adores her family and how much she could not wait to have that captured for her. She even did a little countdown for me, sending me updates saying “only two weeks to my session” etc after I would post new pictures from current sessions. When the day of her family portraits arrived I could not wait to meet them all. As soon as I met the Griffith family in person I knew how awesome my afternoon would be.  Both daughters were so adorable ( and very full of sass) and instantly reminded me of myself and my baby sister at there age.  I also love to see how a dad interacts with his daughters, and this was the kind of dad any little girl would be lucky to have.

Hands down though the best part for me was after I finished editing and sent along the pictures that Coral contacted me to tell me she “cried” when she looked through them because she loved her pictures so much. Nothing is better than having a client excited for her session and even more happy with the final result.

Griffith family, thank you so much for sharing your family with me!!!

Princess Party, a pink wonderland birthday party! Temecula Children’s photography

When I was in first grade I went to a private school. That year I remember a fundraiser for our school was a elaborate garage sale, and I begged my mom to take me. I found a old nightgown , but to me it looked like a princess dress. It had spaghetti straps and it was floor length (on my 1st grade body ) and it was some horrible polyester material in mint green and pink. I loved it.  Dress up, no matter where the clothes come from or how fancy they are is magical when you are a kid. Simply putting on a costume, really does take your imagination to a new place.

If you follow my blog, then you probably recognize this little girl – Emily. Her family has hired me several times to capture various moments for them and when they asked me to photograph her 4th birthday princess party- well how could I refuse?! The theme was of course- princesses, and all the little girls got to dress up and drink tea and play games and learn about all the different Disney’s princesses. The amazing cake was not only delicious but adorable too.

One VERY important fact that I know miss Emily would want me to share with you is how much she LOVES pony’s and horses. She received so many as gifts she could have started her own stable.

Miss Emily and the rest of your lovely family, thank you again for having me capture your memories!!
