Handsome Baby

March 25, 2012

You might remember this handsome little baby from his newborn session that I just recently posted. Yes, I’m behind on sharing. I wanted to get  a couple of shots up from his 6 month old session that I did yesterday so, that his parents can take a sneak peek!  They are the sweetest couple and I know exactly where Baby “K” gets his disposition from. Just as in his newborn session I didn’t hear one cry from him. Still very sweet and angelically tempered! Seeing him really made me want another. I might need to change my career path or my speciality soon or I may be in trouble. lol. Thank you mom and dad for letting me document this special time in your lifes! I can’t believe he is already 6 months old!!

This Image Evoked So Many Emotions For Me | Orange County Child Photographer

November 26, 2011

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation on the island of Kauai. One of my favorite places in the entire world.  I spent most of my summers there while growing up and both my parents were born and raised on the island of Kauai.  When my mom passed away several years ago we sprinkled her ashes there as this was her wish.  The island is such a spiritual place for me.  One early morning I took my kids to one of the beautiful beaches there and my daughter was just playing and walking on the beach.  I took this capture and it has such an ethereal feel to it. I felt my sweet mom was watching over my darling daughter.  They never had the chance to meet each other but I know my children would have adored her as much I did.  My mom always wanted grandchildren and she pretty much gave up the idea as none of my sisters or I had children before she passed.   I know she sees them everyday and is always with us in a higher sense. This image is a reminder to me of that. Thank you mom for being who you are….

    This image makes me cry. In a good way. I’m so saddened for your loss, and fear the day I have to sprinkle my mom’s ashes. But, I’m happy for you too. Happy that she watches over you. Happy that your love for her is being passed down to your own children. I love that Kauai provides you so much peace and spirituality to you. This image is gorgeous. And so are you.

I Won 1st Place! | Orange County Child Photographers

October 22, 2011

OMG!! So to my surprise I woke up and saw a pingback to iheartfaces.com and thought something was up. Well I had no idea I’d win 1st place! I’m so thrilled and excited! Thank you so much!!!

Special thanks to this week’s Guest Photographer Judge, Femi Corazon!
“There is a very delicate, sweet and soft quality to this portrait. It has a very painterly feel. I love the wisps of hair blowing around her face, her lovely expression and her body language expressed through her hands. This beautiful image makes me feel like I know this little girl. A perfect capture and beautiful post-processing.”

Sisterly Love | Orange County Child Photographer

September 21, 2011

I’ve known these two beautiful twin girls all their lives. It’s been so wonderful to see them grow into young ladies so curious about everything. Although, they really had no interest in taking any photos they did give me a few opportunties to capture their spirit and their beauty. I can’t say I really blame them for wanting to explore and play in the water instead of posing for me. It was a gorgeous beach! Here are a few from our session. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Sweet Hannah and a Farwell

August 7, 2011

Some of you may remember Hannah from back in March when I had the opportunity to photograph her. She was the sweet little girl that was battling cancer. Her Aunts tell me she was a little fiesty one with so much spirit. In April she lost her battle and left this world. Definitly, not without leaving a mark. She has touched many lives including mine.  She recently had her 6th Birthday and her family and friends celebrated with pink balloons, pink cupcakes and a beautiful pink sky! Happy Birthday Hannah! May you be in peace and free from pain.

God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

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.

I Believe In Miracles

March 25, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to meet a lovely and brave little girl named Hannah and her amazingly sweet mom Shelly. Hannah was diagnosed with a rare kidney cancer at the young age of 13 months. After almost 5 full years of trying to cure her cancer, her doctors have decided that traditional medical treatments will not cure Hannah. Her family is praying for a miracle. If you are reading this story and believe in the power of prayer please join me in saying one right now.

I wanted to share with you my experience when I was photographing sweet little Hannah. Her mother Shelly is just such a strong and beautiful person. She is actually the sister of one of my Belly to Baby clients. You might remember the beautiful blonde mama to be? Maybe you might remember her beautiful newborn Baby “S”? Anyhow, not only did Shelly arrive with Hannah but her whole family came to the beach session for support. Hannah’s grandparents, two of her Aunties, one of her Uncles and her sweet little cousin. I really cannot explain the sense of LOVE that I felt between them. But it was very evident that there was a very strong bond between them. They were there for EACHOTHER.

If you are interested in reading more about Hannah or donating to help Hannah and her family please visit her site. You can also keep to date with her Facebook page… Hannah’s Helping Hands.

Hannah wasn’t feeling very well the day of our shoot. But she was such a great sport! I was so honored to photograph Hannah and her family and am very happy to share a few shots from her session.

Boys Will Be Boys! | Orange County Child & Family Photographer

February 16, 2011

I had so much fun shooting these little guys…they’re twins by the way! They are the boys of my good friend “S”. We’ve known eachother since before our children arrived and our kids are only a few days apart! So, it was a real pleasure for me to do this session! As you can see the boys are having fun being boys! I just loved these playful shots that I got of them. I also, pulled out my wide angle lens and got to use that for these shots. I love that baby…I love the way the skies look when I use this lens. Anyhow, thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy the images!
