BRITTANIE – CLASS OF 2017

I think I have known Brittanie since she was about 10 years old. What an honor it was when she called me and asked me to take some graduation pictures for her as she was graduating from college!  The best part about that was that Brittanie shared with me that she never ever thought she’d go to school beyond high school (which by the way, I did her Senior pictures from high school as well!)… but look at her now! Any schooling is a HUGE accomplishment Brittanie and to be able to share your joy in this accomplishment makes me so happy! Congratulations sweet lady!9[1](6)(12)(20)(33)(35)(39)(64)(65)(52)(45)(59)

 

LESLIE AND ANTHONY – REDLANDS MATERNITY SESSION

It’s always nice to be contacted by a new client through referrals! It’s even nicer when you “click” with those clients. My new friends Leslie and Anthony are expecting their 1st baby this July. They immediately were comfy in front of the camera and we had such a great time together. They’ve also asked me to do the baby’s newborn pictures, and I can not wait to meet their little girl! Congratulations Leslie and Anthony and THANK YOU again for asking me to take your maternity pictures during this extremely special time in your lives! I will see you in July!

CAMRYN – CLASS OF 2017

I have known Camryn for most of her life.  Her parents are dear friends of mine and her older brother and my oldest son were in Kindergarten together, and to be able to watch Camryn grow into the young woman that she is today has been incredible! I am so proud of her and all of her accomplishments, so proud of her acceptance to CSU San Marcos (she’s close enough her Mom and I can come have a sleep over…yeah? lol) and I am just amazed by her perseverance and drive to get what she wants! Good Luck Camryn! I can’t wait to see where your future takes you!camryn-26camryn-53camryn-59camryn-66camryn-80camryn-85camryn-93-copycamryn-96camryn-99camryn-110camryn-120camryn-132camryn-134camryn-135camryn-137camryn-140

CLASS OF 2017 – LINDSEY

I have been swamped with Seniors this year…and I LOVE it! I am finding that teens, particularly Seniors, just on the cusp of graduating are so much fun to photograph. Not that I didn’t enjoy it before, I just think now, that with my own 3 young adult children now grown and out of the house, I am missing them, and the time spent with the graduating Seniors, reminds me of the good times I spent with my kids! I am guessing kind of how some people say they need a “baby fix!” So when Lindsey’s Mom asked me to meet up with Lindsey at Redlands’ Prospect Park, I was super excited and knew we’d have a great time together! I had known Lindsey and her Mom prior to the day of the shoot, so it was like hanging out with old friends. Good Luck Lindsey with your future plans, your desire to serve our country in the Navy and your amazing outlook on life! You are incredible and I can’t see where life takes you!Lindsey (9)Lindsey (34)Lindsey (91)Lindsey (97)Lindsey (102)Lindsey (120)Lindsey (125)Lindsey (65)Lindsey (156)Lindsey (142)Lindsey (135)

SAMANTHA – “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” BIRTHDAY

 When Samantha’s Mom spoke to me about her 3 year birthday pictures and let me know that she’d be wearing a dress from a collection based on “Beauty and the Beast” I immediately started thinking I needed something different! Something fun, something sweet and subtle to give it a little bit of magic to go with her theme! Enter the grand stone staircase that leads to the magnificent doors of the castle, the enchanted red rose, and a Beauty of a little girl who was the best little model I could have asked for.   Thank You Stephanie for trusting me and the “vision” I had.

A PHOTOGRAPHER’S DAUGHTER

I WAS BLESSED WITH A GORGEOUS DAUGHTER – SWEET AND HONEST, HELPFUL AND BEAUTIFUL – INSIDE AND OUT . SHE IS GRADUATING IN JUNE THIS YEAR. SO UNLIKE MOST SENIORS, KAITLAN HAS LET ME TAKE HER SENIOR PICTURES IN EVERY SEASON OF THE YEAR! TODAY IN SUNNY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, IT’S 85 DEGREES – SO THESE ARE FROM JANUARY, BUT ISN’T SHE JUST ADORABLE?

MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL

A COUPLE OF NIGHTS AGO MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER ASKED IF WE COULD GO OUT AND TAKE SOME PICTURES. OF COURSE I SAID “YES!” SHE IS SERIOUSLY MY FAVORITE MODEL AND IS SO EASY TO PHOTOGRAPH! SHE IS A SENIOR THIS YEAR, SO I AM PRETTY SURE SHE WILL BE GRACING THE PAGES OF THIS BLOG A FEW TIMES IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS AS WE PLAN AND PREPARE FOR HER GRADUATION!
