The Castillo Kids: Cousins and Friends

child valencia

These beautiful little girls were all together at Grandma’s house in Lancaster for the Holidays and Grandma wanted to have their pictures taken while she had the opportunity. We decided to do their session indoors as we weren’t sure if it would be raining or windy. It was of course windy as usual for Antelope Valley so we used one of their empty rooms for the majority of the session. We worked at getting them all to look at the camer at the same time but it was all worth it and I enjoyed photographing these sweet girls!


1 Year Old: Ayla

I must say that this little girl is such a cutie! We did Ayla’s session at the Lombardi Ranch Pumpkin Patch and their whole set up for their annual pumpkin patch was pretty cool. Ayla loved walking around  exploring the pumpkin patch in her adorable tutu sets from Posh Little Tutus and and Spoiled Rotten Kids.  Ayla’s mommy and nanny kept her smiling with lots of face making and singing right behind me, we had a fun time!

1 Year Old Portraits: Ryleigh

I’ve been able to photograph this little cutie throughout her first year. You can see her other sessions by clicking these links 9 Months , 6 Months , First Portraits. As a photographer it’s so cool to be able to capture these milestones of a new life and I just love seeing little ones grow. Nadia Cakes made her cake for this session and I got the frame with a chalk board insert from The Organic Bloom (I’m in love with Organic Bloom frames). Enjoy the photos!


Ryleigh – 9 Month Portraits

I am becoming attached to this little gal as I watch her grow before my eyes. She’s a sweet little girl with a sweet family! She is now 9 months old and it seems like I just took her 3 month portraits yesterday. I love building lasting relationships where I get to see families and lives develop and grow as I step in every so often to capture memories for them. I love what I do for that reason. It’s a true blessing!
