Thank You for a Beautiful 2016!

Every year, on New Year’s Day, I go through my very favorite images from each of the previous year’s sessions and I create a very special slideshow as a huge thank you to all of our clients! In 2016 we met a lot of new families and had the amazing pleasure of photographing so many of our regular clients. It’s one of my greatest joys getting to watch all of your little ones grow up. These images fill my heart with joy and gratitude to each and every one of you. It is because of you that I am able to run the business of my dreams!

2016 was a year of hard work, some small set-backs and failures, but ever greater successes! We photographed 101 families with 66 babies & 160 kids. The year began slower than normal, but ended with a fall that was twice as busy as the year before! And in the midst of the busy season I had a health scare that inconvenienced some clients and made my work load even heavier. I want to thank all of the wonderfully kind, patient and understanding families who we had to reschedule. I am thankful to report that I am strong and healthy going into 2017. My body may have just been telling me that I need to remember to drink more water, get more sleep,and take a break once in a while.

I am an admitted work-aholic, always struggling against my impulses to overfill my plate. To save me from myself, I added a few new members to our team to help with our growth this year. Not only did we have a full shooting schedule but I also taught a workshop, an online class with @clickinmoms, and mentored a few other photographers. AND after an almost two year search for the right space we moved into our first commercial STUDIO!

I can’t wait to see what the year ahead holds for us. We plan to shoot more, teach more, play more, and laugh more! Bring me your babies!

Christina’s Maternity Portraits at the Beach

It’s always wonderful to see a Baby’s First Year family expecting their second little one. This is one of my favorite families. I was excited to hear that they are expecting a little girl. Christina didn’t have a maternity session with her last pregnancy, so I was thrilled to get to shoot one for her this time around.

Mo’s Maternity Session at the Beach

When Mo, my friend and tattoo artist, told me she was pregnant I was thrilled. I’ve wanted to photograph her for awhile and her maternity session was the perfect opportunity! We headed to Leo Carillo Beach in Malibu to photograph these stunning maternity portraits.

When we arrived I was a little disappointed. Instead of a beautiful golden sunset we were met with drab grey skies. Definitely not my favorite. But when we got onto the beach, I looked at Mo, in her beautiful mauve gown, standing against the dark water and grey sky and it looked absolutely perfect! And when a little bit of light came out and the clouds started to show just enough sky, I knew that I would love these images.

And just 16 hours after I took my last shot, their little girl was born. It turns out those uncomfortable little cramps she was feeling on the ride, were not from the bumps in the road. I believe this was the least amount of time I’ve ever had between one Mama’s maternity and newborn session. I’ll be sharing her newborn photos soon.
