Having an outdoor family photography session, or a baby photography session, with kids that are about one and a half years old is usually a lot of fun. They just love to explore things, and so that’s how my favorite portrait of baby Flynn happened, with her hugging the bench and sticking her thong out LOL I just love that image 🙂 And the one of her giggling in mom and dad’s arms, is just precious.
Family portrait is like a time capsule. And I am so happy to have captured these beautiful moments for this wonderful family.
Please meet this baby portrait session‘s little happy and fashionable star – baby girl Hayden. I got so much energy from her giggling, clapping, and dancing, that I wanted to keep her for myself 🙂 She is like a little happy energizer bunny radiating love and joy! And she looks so much like her beautiful mommy Vanessa, who had a maternity photography session with me when she was expecting Hayden. You can see her maternity portraits by clicking HERE.
Now I hope you enjoy Hayden’s images. Be careful her smile is contagious! 🙂
Baby photography sessions are always fun! I don’t only get to enjoy all the cute faces babies make, along with the clapping and giggles, but there is also a great show behind the camera, as the entire family is cheering for the baby, making funny faces and silly noises LOL Alex’s session was no exception. His mommy, aunt, and grandma were very fun to be around.
And of course to remind you, Alex is the adorable winner of this years Cutest Kid Contest, and this portrait session was his prize. I love how vibrant his portraits turned out. Alex’s mommy did a beautiful job putting together the nursery, and she got some adorable outfits for Alex to wear for the portraits.
Watch the slideshow in the end to see more of his adorable images.
It’s been a while since I posted on my blog. I’m sorry! I fell a little behind. I hope to if not catch up, at least be able to go back to my routine of posting once a week.
I would love to share with you the images from this children’s portrait session I had in the winter. These little girls are Kayla and Khloe, they are first cousins and were born one month apart. The reason why this portrait session was special to me, is because I used to work with Khloe’s mommy very closely many year ago when I was a bookkeeper. I also knew Kayla’s mommy, and both their daddies. It’s been many years since I’ve seen them, and now meeting them with their cute little girls and having a portrait session with them, felt like a little family reunion 🙂 Of course there was a lot of catching up, a lot of fun conversations about the old days, and it brought up lost of memories.
And of course it was very fun photographing these goofy little girlies 🙂 I hope you enjoy their portraits and their beautiful portrait video.
I always say that I am very blessed to be able to do what I love, and part of that blessing is photographing newborn babies. Capturing the delicate beauty of a little newborn who just came into this world is truly priceless. These moment only last a few days, and helping remember them for a lifetime is simply amazing. Their fist days of life, their beautiful little features, how tiny they are in their parent’s hands, and how lovingly their mommy and daddy are looking at this little newborn bundle of joy, are such wonderful things to capture in photographs.
This little nugget, I had the pleasure of photographing, is newborn baby girl Giselle. At 9 days old she already knew what she wanted and tried posing for herself. I have to say, she did a very good job, especially in the smiling portrait! Those are all her moves in that image, and it’s one of her mommies favorite newborn portraits of her. Her mommy and daddy are very sweet as well. It was such a pleasure meeting them during this very special time of their life, and capturing their very fist family portrait!
Victoria, baby Giselle’s mommy, wrote a testimonial about her experience during their newborn portrait session with me. CLICK HERE to read it!

A family portrait is one of the greatest family assets. Children grow by day and before you know it, they will be packing their bags to leave for collage. Photographing families, especially when they are being who they truly are, is like freezing their life in this very moment to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
This is Teresa’s family. Her loving husband and her two kids, 3-year-old baby girl, and 7-year-old little man. It’s their family’s day in a park. A moment when their kids are still silly little kids, photographed to remember for a lifetime 🙂
Photographing children is always fun and unpredictable. Sometimes I may have a little plan in my head on how the portrait session will go, but I have enough experience to know that I should not count on it 🙂 and more importantly push it to happen. I know that if I do so, I will most definitely miss out on a better portrait than I could ever plan. A portrait that shows the kiddos real personality and expression. They will make it happen, I just need to be ready to capture it!
In these portraits are little brother and sister Ellia and Anthony. Ellia is almost 2 and Anthony is almost 4 years old. And as adorable as they are, they did make me sweat 🙂 and even had my heart skip a bit couple of times 🙂
These are Ed, Jo-Jo, Levon, and Marianna. The boys are brothers, and Marianna is their one and only cousin. They are growing up together and every year in December the kids share a portrait session for their holiday cards. This year I was the photographer, who had the pleasure of photographing these adorable children. I have to tell you, photographing four young children in one session is pretty challenging! 🙂 A lot of tricks, imagination, and game playing had to be used! 🙂 But we did have a lot of fun. And… we had a good workout running around the park 🙂
This year we had a one day in studio event of Mini Holiday Sessions for Family and Children portraits. It was very hectic but was a lot of fun! There was even a newborn baby-boy who made his first trip out of home just so that I could take some adorable portraits of him. I did a lot of shopping to decorate the holiday portrait set and I think it turned out very elegant. I might just make this an annual tradition, so mark your calendars to book a spot for holiday portrait sessions in 2014! 🙂
Do you remember the cutie in this image below? I photographed her when she was an 8 month old baby and she is one of the little stars on my website. She just had a baby sister and I had the pleasure of doing her newborn portraits. It’s unbelievable how much they look alike! Sara even prefers the same bottle as Nella did when she was a newborn, and they have similar habits. It felt like photographing twins 18 months apart 🙂 I was also very excite to meet this little princes because I photographed her mommy recently for the maternity portraits. I love that session! CLICK HERE to check it out here.
I would like to introduce to you adorable baby-boy Thomas. He is a very strong little guy with lots and lots of fight in him! He was born premature, at 32 weeks and only 2,5 pounds. Of course he scared his parents! A lot!!! But that’s what kids are for, right? 🙂 He was 5 weeks old when he had the newborn photography session with me and big and strong 5 pounds 🙂 He was only one week out of the hospital and his mommy told me that with this portrait session she got to celebrate the joy of finally having him home and by their side. It is such a great pleasure and honor for me to he a part of wonderful moments like that, and having the privilege to capture portraits to remind about these precious moments for a lifetime!

Please meet little Miss Cree Alexandria. She was 15 days old when I photographed her, and such a little model! Sometimes I would pose her and she would fight me just so she could do a more adorable pose! She definitely knows how to behave in front of the camera! 🙂
This newborn photography session was for adorable 11-day-old baby-boy Ryder. He was such a little gentlemen during the photoshoot, he didn’t have a single accident! I was very surprised! 🙂 He took pictures on his own, with his mommy, with his teddy bears, and even with his dog, a very fun and playful pitbull Cowboy (check out the before after shot of Ryder and Cowboy at the end of this post.)
And a little pick at a before and after of the newborn baby-boy Ryder and his dog Cowboy. I didn’t want to give either of them hard time trying to capture them in a single shot, so they took a turn. Plus Cowboy is the sweetest dog but he is a very happy and active animal that makes a lot of random movements, so I thought this was the safest way to capture the shot. Baby’s safety is my number one priority!
This 8 day old bundle of joy is my adorable brand new niece Ava. It’s such a joy to have a new addition in the family! You can imagine how much I enjoyed photographing her. I had her all to myself for a couple of hours and no one could take her from me 🙂
First time I photographed Hope she was one and a half, running around on her tippy-toes and showing me all the toys she has. This time she was having conversations with me and giving me the sweetest hugs!!! Seeing kids grow up is like real life magic to me. Noticing how their expressions change, their personality, behavior, and with that of course their portraits change as well. Maybe it’s me, who is so detail driven, noticing every little thing, that’s being wowed over little gifts of life. But isn’t it the little things that matter the most?!
Please meet adorable lady Scarlett. She was named after Scarlett O’hara and she is a true little princess. Her mommy wanted some portraits to have a vintage reference and she pulled together all these beautiful vintage toys from her childhood as well as from Scarlett’s grandmas, and ordered this beautiful ivory outfit. We added a set of pearls and a few extra staffed animals and got these beautiful portraits. The second idea was to have the color scarlet incorporated into the portrait so I made a cute little tutu for our princess and she played her part sitting on a great throne 🙂
The words below are what her mommy decided to put on Scarlett’s cards, and I thought they were absolutely beautiful and wanted to share them with you.
I am a child of royal birth.
My Father is King of Heaven and earth.
My spirit was born in the courts on high.
A child beloved. A Princess… am I
