You may remember the parents of this little one from just 2 weeks ago here.

Our good friends W and K brought the newest addition to their family on Thursday night. How she’s changed so much since I saw her at the hospital just 3 days before our session.


Meet Khloe, 3 days old. I always tell moms of newborns, the younger they are for pictures, the better! Khloe slept the ENTIRE session (and may I add soiled just about everything she touched, hehe)

W family, congrats on your third beautiful daughter!

Francine Valenzuela: She is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait until we get our little new guy in September!

Brandy: Oh my goodness. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I believe I now have baby fever.

Miss R is just about 7 weeks old now and such a sweet baby! She behaved very well for any baby her age and was a dream to photograph. E family, I had fun hanging out today. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and congrats again on your gorgeous girl : )

As many of my blog readers know, and a few of my former clients, my husband and I are expecting! I am 27 weeks pregnant with our second son. That being said, I will be taking my maternity leave from the beginning of September until the end of October. I might be able to squeeze in a few newborns during this time because I understand those are time-sensitive, but all other portrait sessions should be scheduled by the end of August, or November for Christmas pictures!

June is officially booked (I have one Friday open next week). I have one weekend open in July and three weekends open in August.

Please contact me for availability.

And what’s a post without a picture?? Here is my 2 year old. I don’t share him nearly enough on this blog. We just took these last night.

ig: Asking questions are really good thing if you are not understanding something completely, except this article gives pleasant understanding even.

Krysta and I scheduled this very last minute maternity session over the weekend. She is already 38 weeks pregnant! (I know, she looks great!) I cannot wait to meet their third daughter, Khloe, coming into this world in just a few days.
