olivia | senior portraits

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the last beautiful senior in the Sales family. Three girls back to back, their parents are saints! Seriously, this set of sisters are just beyond gorgeous... and they all have the sweetest and kindest hearts making them even more beautiful! Olivia loves to read... and eat... so we decided to incorporate both those things into her senior session. How can you go wrong with an old bookstore and ice cream? We had so much fun during this session and it was a pleasure as always to spend the day with her and her amazing mom. Thanks so much Olivia for allowing me to capture these memories for you. I hope you always look back on them with a smile remembering just how you were as a senior!

marlowe's two | child portraiture

Marlowe's Oma asked me if I could do a session of her adorable granddaughter for her 2nd Birthday. She wanted to surprise her daughter in law at the birthday party with portraits of Marlowe and I was more than happy to help out! Marlowe was absolutely the sweetest little 2 year old ever. She had such a gentle spirit and her little laugh when her Opa got her giggling was just too precious. It's so rewarding to photograph such wonderful people who are so kind and loving. Their love for each other was just so apparent and it ended up being one of my favorite sessions to date. Thanks so much Betty for choosing me to catch these special moments for you. I hope the surprise went well and your daughter in law loved the images we got!

catalina's one | child portraiture

You may remember that I got to photograph my adorable new niece Catalina as a newborn. Well, it's been a whole year and she is now a cute chunky little one year old. My brother and sister-in-law came down from Anaheim so I could do her 1 year session. I can't believe how big she has gotten. Seriously though, is there anything better than chunky little rolls on a baby? I could just eat her up! Love you guys and I'm so glad you were able to make it down! Happy Birthday Catalina!!!

simeon | newborn portraiture

I always love it when I get to see clients back in the studio. I had the pleasure of doing a newborn session for Jedidiah back in November of 2009. He's now the proud big brother to this adorable little guy Simeon. It was fun to look back at their images side by side and see how different they are. Thanks so much Jami and Paul for choosing me again and letting me cuddle your newest little family member. He's such a sweetheart and I'm sure he and Jed will be so close as they grow up!

I snuck a few cute shots of daddy and big brother and am so glad I did. You can tell they have such a great bond!

And just for fun, here is a comparison between these two adorable brothers. Big brother Jed is on the left and Simeon is on the right.

riley's one | child portraiture

I had the pleasure of photographing this little cutie last year when she was just an itty bitty newborn. I can't believe she's already ONE! It was so exciting to see her again for her one year session. Not only is she adorable, but she's so good and was perfectly happy hanging out while I did my thing. Thanks so much for choosing me again Angie and enjoy another year with your sweetheart!

giving back | family portraiture

Sometimes you meet people in your life that... well... change it. This family has been that for me. Carlos used to be the small groups pastor at our old church, until he took a leap of faith and decided to become a full time missionary. What faith to step out of your comfort zone and rely 100% on God for your families well being. I can't imagine the strength it would take to have that type of faith, but this family has exactly that.

Carlos is doing such great things with his ministry and has recently started his own non-profit called Reaching the Hungry in Word and Deed. He works to get churches involved directly with their missionaries so they are being proactive in working towards reaching the hungry throughout our world. He helps provide or do practical things they need such as teaching them to more effectively grow their own food, providing mosquito nets, digging water wells, or even something as simple as sponsoring children through his alliance with World Vision. He then pairs the deed with the word of God via talking Bibles so that those who can't read are still blessed... well, you can imagine the outcome. Thousands of people are having their basic needs met and they are coming to Christ at the same time. I'm so excited to be partnering with his ministry and I hope you take a minute to check it out.

I don't give back nearly enough with my photography but am so blessed to do so with this family when I can. You've seen his gorgeous daughters senior pictures in the past and here they are all together for a session I did for them this past fall. Thank you so much Carlos and Lisa, for what you do and what you give up to help those in need. You are truly a blessing to everyone around you and I can't wait to see your ministry blossom.
