{Candice and Brandon}

While on my visit home, I also got the chance to do a photo shoot for Candice and her boyfriend, Brandon.   Candice makes all my hats and props I use for my newborn photo shoots and I was so excited to get the chance to photograph them.  They drove over an hour to get their pictures taken and were so much fun to get to know!  Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to take your pictures :)

{The "V" Family}

What a small world it really is....Matt and my husband, Brad grew up together, attending the same high school and we recently discovered they are stationed at the same base as us!  They have a little boy who is absolutely hands down the cutest baby EVER!  I was so excited to get the chance to photograph their cute little family!  They were such troopers too, it was an extremely cold and windy day!  We managed to squeeze an hour long session into a 25 min one, and still came away with some awesome pictures!  Thank you, Matt and Kimbre for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family!

Jewels is the most beautiful person!  She is a former model and so she was so fun to work with! She didn't need any help posing and made my job extremely easy!  I loved the chance to work with such a creative and beautiful woman.

Mike and Katie...{in love}

What a cold day for pictures!!  Seems like I am saying that every time I post about a session, but it's the truth!  I guess I am a true Californian :)  I even dragged my husband and kiddos out for this session, which is probably the reason why they are sick right now!  Anyhow, Mike and Katie were such a cute couple to photograph...Mike just got home from a long deployment and I was happy they asked me to take their pictures for them!

{Jaelyn Machon}

This adorable little girl was only 6 days old for this photo shoot!  We only had an hour {with feeding/diaper breaks in between) but we were still able to get a lot of wonderful pictures!!  She was the easiest newborn ever to photograph  (i've only done 3, lol)!  She was so good!  I am definitely learning more and more with each newborn session, but sometimes i get so nervous trying to prop the little babies up in all these uncomfortable poses!!  Hopefully I'm improving with each shoot! 

{Trash the Dress Session......Diana....}

this one is my favorite and now on the front page of my website :)

{Trash the Dress Session.......Renee}

This was just a spontaneous, fun session!  WE didn't do a "real" trash the dress shoot, where you completely destroy the wedding dress, but we did a modified, "safer" version of it, where the girls just had to get in the dirt and get a little dirty!  They both looked SOOO beautiful!  I think i REALLY love taking pictures of women in their wedding dresses....a wedding dress just automatically makes a pictures beautiful :)

{Tiffany and Justin}

These two are so cute :)  Again, they were so patient with me!

{The Serrano boys}

Jorge and Richard are the sons of my former next door neighbors...they were SO full of energy and being so cute and funny!!  They totally kept me on my toes, the 30 minute session consisted of numerous wrestling matches and rolling around in the field!  Boys are so much fun :)

{Halloween....My Own Kiddos...}

I was so excited to dress up both babies this year!  And of course, I dragged them outside to snap some quick pictures....

{The Houstons}

The Houstons were my first official family photoshoot!  They were so patient with me as I fumbled around, carrying my ladder, my huge camera bag, and accessories!!  Their little boy is adorable, and definitely kept me on my toes :)  What a fun day and excellent learning experience!
