Family Session: The Adriano’s

I enjoyed seeing the Adraino’s again to shoot their family Christmas photos. The last time I saw little Owen he was a tiny newborn and now he’s almost walking around! I also took Elizabeth’s maternity photos back in April and you can see the photos from that session here. One of the things I really enjoy about being  photographer is being able to see a family grow year after year.  Elizabeth and Michael are both teachers and keep busy with being involved in school activities. They wonderful people and I’m so happy for them and their new addition to the family.

Newborn Twins: Caylee & Carter

This shoot was my first newborn twin shoot and I was extremely excited for it. Patricia contacted me originally to take her maternity but as things tend to not go how we plan she ended up needing to wait until after the twins were born for pictures. These two precious babies truly are Christmas miracles! Caylee and Carter are a boy and girl, and Carter’s lungs are not healthy enough yet so you’ll see him with oxygen on in the pictures. I say he was being a good big brother and giving his sister more nutrients while still inside mommy. 🙂  This family is beautiful and if you think of them say a prayer as Carter is still having some health struggles that they are learning more about and continuing to manage.

Engaged: Andrea + Michael

Last week I met up with Andrea in Michael in Valencia to take their engagement photos. One of the best things about this couple is that they like to have their goofy moments with each other. Well maybe it’s mostly Michael being a goof and making Andrea laugh at him, but still it makes for a fun time with them. I am excited for their wedding in May and I know it’s going to be a fun and beautiful day.

Alyssa & Doug: Valencia California Wedding

I had the opportunity to second shoot for Trinity Wheeler at this wedding and had a great time! I enjoy getting to second shoot several times a year as I can always learn something from how someone else may do things. Alyssa and Doug were married at the Blessed Kateri Catholic Church and held their reception at the Valencia County Club and used SOS Entertainment to DJ. I loved Alyssa’s veil with the lace on the edges and the boys in their trendy Converse shoes and Volcom suits. Such a beautiful day!

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 .
