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!


Birthday Photos at the Park: Camden is 1yr!

Enjoyed time at the park with Camden Mordh and photographing him for his first birthday. It was so fun to photograph this cute little guy!  His mommy Danielle and Aunt Kristi did lots clapping, singing and noise making so we could get some good smiles. We had to scare some 10yr old boys out of the baby swing but as soon as they were gone we put Camden right in. I think the swing was his favorite part of the day! He loved going high like the big boys do. Well maybe not like some big boys but he was having a blast.  Happy first birthday to Camden!!

The picture on the left below is of Camden when he was just a week or so old. They grow so fast!

Here is another one of Camden’s feet at just a week or so old.

One big happy family!

The Bullock’s are from Georgia and their “ya’ll” and “ain’t” talk was a sweet reminder of our family back in Virginia. The bullocks were recently here in California for Doug’s college graduation and wanted to get some family photos as a gift to their mom for Mother’s Day. Markie, their oldest son and his wife Christy are starting an orphanage in Mexico. Debbie and I met in college and I was one of her bridesmaids back in 2005.  Debbie and her husband Alan live in Georgia and love serving at their local church. Doug and his wife Amber recently moved to Colorado where they serve on staff at a Front Range Baptist Church.

Although this family is not so close on the map they certainly are very close in each others hearts. It was a joy to take their family photos and spend a little time with them. They are a genuine and beautiful family.

Gibbs Family: Anytime Session

To say the least I absolutely love this family! I met Janelle while we were in college and we’ve been best buds ever since. We were both from opposite ends of the great state of Oregon and to make a long story short we ended up finding out that her dad and my uncle knew one another quite well. Janelle went to school with my cousins and Janelle’s dad had worked with my uncle on construction projects. What a small world!  Jonathan, Janelle and their son Josiah now live in Florida and while they were out visiting last week we got together for a little family shoot at the park. Thanks for the fun time Gibbs Family!! Love you guys!

My favorite 🙂

We gave Josiah blueberries to keep him happy for the second half of the session so I  had to get pictures with his mouth closed because it was fill with blueness.

Blueberries all gone now. 🙂  I was holding his favorite book full of trucks and tractors to get a good smile. He loves tractors!

Dada threw him up in the air a few times but Josiah wasn’t too sure about going too high.
