Last year I started a new tradition, a fun and creative Valentine’s Day inspiration shoot. It’s my one shoot a year where I get to be as creative as I want with the location and little details. I picked out all the decor and picked up the cupcakes from Nadia Cakes in Palmdale, CA. Below are several photographs from my Valentine’s Day inspiration shoot at the Ventura Beach Pier in Ventura, CA. I love the lace detail on the bride’s gown! (Thanks Luke and Sharon! You two were perfect for it!) This shoot was also featured in Sparkle & Hay wedding blog and you can see that post here.
Bianca and Joel are two very sweet people and it was a joy to be part of their wedding day in Victorville, CA. They met in college while they were attending Pensacola Christian College. One of my favorite things about their wedding day was that you could sense just how much they loved their family and friends. Although it was Bianca’s big day she didn’t hesitate to congratulate her good friends on their pregnancy during her wedding reception. Her friends had been trying for a long time to have a baby and they told Bianca at her wedding that they were expecting. Joel and Bianca are a lovely couple and I am so excited for them as they begin their journey together as a married couple. Below are some images from their wedding. Enjoy!
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.
Here is Nadia Cakes on TLC‘s show Fabulous Cakes!! So excited for Abby and her team!! They will actually be on the show again soon as they bake a fabulous fall themed wedding cake. If you not able to read my earlier post you can read it and see all the pictures from the big reveal by clicking here. At the beginning of the show the drawing of the cake fades into one of the photo’s I took and later they show another picture I took of a luggage cake that the Nadia Cakes team made. It was so exciting for me to see my pictures on TV!! The film crew forgot to list me as a photographer and apologized to me in an email. Stinks, but hey I knew they were my photos and that’s all that counts right? Had a fun time shooting the big reveal and am happy for Abby and her team at Nadia Cakes for being chosen to be on the show.
Several weeks ago my husband and I met our good friends Jacob and Sara and their family to take family photos at the The Getty in Los Angeles, California. Since Jacob and Sara are good friends of ours naturally we were excited to shoot their family. Their two boys are the cutest little rascals! Time flew by and it started to get dark but we hardly noticed because we were having such a great time with them. Here a are a few photos from the session. Thanks Jacob and Sara for the fun time!
