Abby: Downtown Seattle Senior Photos

I can’t believe this beautiful girl is a Senior! It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that I was babysitting her. Abby’s choice for a Downtown Seattle senior portrait session was so perfect! We had fun walking around looking for the perfect little picture spots and even had stalker bum or two along the way but that just made for a good laugh. 🙂 We of course made sure so stop by the Great Wheel, Gum Wall, Pike Place Market and the first Starbucks ever during our downtown adventure.

Congrats on your senior year Abby! Wishing you all the best as you finish your last year of high school and continue following God’s direction for your future. You are such a lovely young lady inside and out! -Megan

Sleeping Beauty Princess

Ayla: Sleeping Beauty Princess

This little girl is turning 4!! She is having a princess themed birthday party so for her birthday photo shoot she dressed up in the cutest Sleeping Beauty outfit from an Etsy shop Rock the Journey. Her mom and a friend made the wooden swing seat and I pulled out my mad knot tying skills to hang the swing in one of my favorite photo spots in Santa Clarita. I also made a trip to the LA Flower Market with some friends last week and that’s were I picked up the flowers for putting on the rope swing. It turned out perfectly! Little girls love to play dress up and I have never seen Sleeping Beauty look quite so cute!

If you are interested in making your own swing A helpful post we found on how to make a wooden tree swing was on Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. The knots I made were fisherman’s knots and I got the idea from Gardenista.

Jadon Tyler: Newborn Baby Boy

This cute little guy was born a little early weighing 6lb 14oz and had to stay a little longer in the hospital until his lungs were completely developed. God surprised everyone brought baby Jadon home sooner than expected and he’s doing so well now. A strong little guy for sure! In fact during his session he gave a few strong wiggles and tried getting some stretching time in. He’s such a cutie and was so good for his newborn session. Congrats John & Pearl on your precious new little boy and congrats to Grandma & Grandpa on their first grandbaby!

Nerissa’s Baby Shower: Westlake Village Inn

I so enjoyed photographing Nerissa’s Baby Shower at the Westlake Village Inn last week and all the pretty details were gorgeous! They decorated with pinks, browns, umbrellas, baby carriages, childhood photos of Nerissa and a candy bar complete with a cute diaper cake. Nerissa was beautiful in her lace cream top and looked so happy having her close friends and family there to celebrate their precious little girl.

Scarlett Noelle: Newborn

Santa Clarita Newborn Photographer

Beautiful little Scarlett Noelle was born the day after Christmas at a week past her due date and her family was so excited to finally meet her. From what I’ve heard this little girl has a pretty good big brother too who absolutely adores his new baby sister. Her parents Jared & Lily are cousins of ours whom we don’t get to see very often but LOVE the times when we are able hang out around the holidays. Eric and I were in Virginia visiting family for Christmas so we were excited to be able to meet Scarlett while were in town and I of course had to take some pictures of our sweet new 2nd cousin. So happy for you Jared & Lily!
