Gorgeous Senior

May 23, 2011

This gorgeous senior was a natural at modeling for me.  Isn’t she stunning?  She will be going away for college in the fall and planning to get her teaching credentials.  She comes from a family of educators.  In fact her mom is a wonderful preschool teacher and my son and I have been in several of her classes together.  Miss “S” is very bright and is in the National Honor Society and  in AP classes. She likes to attend school activities with her friends.  I wish her the best in her future endeavors! I know she will be successful!!

Oh so cute!!

May 19, 2011

Aren’t these two little kiddos SO CUTE?  I mean seriously!  If I didn’t already have children they would certainly make me want some!  This family really means the world to me.  I’ve known my friend “F” before we all had children and both her children have the same birthdays as me and my sisters. WHOA! How did that happen?  I know? Is that bizzare or what?  “K” was born on my birthday which I share with my twin sister.  “N” was born on my older sister’s birthday.  That must mean something to the stars right?  Anywho….I wanted to share a few of my favorite images from this family beach session.

Magical Beach Maternity Session...

May 11, 2011

This maternity session was one of my favorite sessions. I just LOVE the beach! There is just something spiritual and so peaceful about it.

This good looking young couple wanted a beach maternity session before they left California to temporarily relocate. They were the sweetest couple ever! They are expecting twins in July…one boy and one girl! How perfect is that? It was so neat being around such a young couple that were so madly in love with eachother! I could see it in their eyes and the way they interacted with eachother. It was the first time I had been to this beach. There is no public beach access unless you swim there. It was very secluded and as you can see just spectacular!

After I shot the first image below I knew it would be a “magical” shot and I just could not wait to get home and process it! I love it! Ok, so are you just wondering how cute their newborn twins are going to be? Well I am! I am so sad that I won’t be taking their newborn photos. Come back to California “A & C”!! LOL!! Send me a photo of your twins when you deliver! I want to see them!!
