Baby Benjamin: Palmdale Newborn Session

I first met Evan & Stephanie back in June when we met up in Santa Monica for their maternity session. I had such a fun time with the two of them for their maternity session so naturally I was so excited about Benjamin’s newborn session. Baby Benjamin arrived at the end of August and was 9lbs 1oz! Go Stephanie for delivering her big boy! 🙂

Benjamin was exactly 1 week old on the day of his session and he was such a good boy. Newborn sessions always take time for getting baby in just the right position and asleep for the super cute photographs but it’s always worth the wait. I just love this precious little guy and am so happy for Evan & Stephanie as they grow their family! Benjamin has some pretty amazing parents!

Anytime Portraits: Nicole

Nicole is a sophomore this year and is such a beautiful little lady! Her mom had me come to their house to shoot her and her brother Jacob and you can see his photos here.  While I was there they brought down some schnazy cars from the neighbors house for a few shots and then we headed out to the back of the property for more pictures with Nicole and her friends Anne and Logan. I love putting beautiful subjects in the middle of a rough and rustic area and these girls were perfect for this shoot. Enjoy the photographs! Oh and if you love boots like I do you, can find a pair like those pictured in the middle above from Steve Madden (my other crush).

1 Year Old Portraits: Abigail

This little girl was having a very serious day for her one year old session but her cuteness makes up for the lack of smiles. This was my first time using a canvas back drop and I love this tri-split that I bought from Bad Sass Backdrops. Abigail’s mom kept her occupied with ice pops before she busted out the Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. Right about then things got messy fast.  Abigail’s Dad is overseas serving our county at the moment and I am super excited to very soon be capturing the homecoming of Daddy and I know Mommy and Abigail can’t wait to see him. It will be such a precious moment!

Family Portraits: The Beeson’s

Say hello to the Beeson family!  I met up with Josh, Jen and their 3 kiddos in Santa Clarita to take their family pictures and loved photographing this family. They brought candy to bribe the kids and I’m pretty sure my husband was making a fool of himself standing behind me trying to get them to smile. Jen did awesome with picking out their outfits and they all looked beautiful! The girls had headbands and black lace rompers from Made with Momma Love. Since Jen is a photographer herself I am sure she’s been thinking up outfit ideas for some time. You can check Jen’s work at http://www.applesofgoldphotos.com .
